What are we looking for?

  • Well-written, high-quality, original content. If you plan to repurpose content from your blog, we ask that you re-write it for us.
  • Content that is free of blatant self- or product-promotion.
  • Include a copyright-free image to accompany your post if possible.
  • Please keep posts between 750 and 1500 words.
     

The nitty-gritty:

  • Our editors reserve the right to edit and adapt your column or guest blog, including headlines, copy, images, hyperlinks and format/flow issues to maximize the reader experience and optimize the content’s search rankings.
  • You are responsible for your own fact-checking. 

Is this a paid opportunity?

No, but it’s a chance to promote yourself, your blog/website and your unique ideas. Columns and blogs are accompanied by a profile with your name, bio and a link back to your blog/website.
 

How do you submit a column?

Please submit content as a Word document and email to Lisa Ryckman along with a brief bio and jpeg headshot. Deadlines are rolling, so submit at your convenience.

When will my column appear on CoBizMag.com?

If accepted, your column will be posted on our home page and featured in our e-newsletter within two to three weeks, often sooner.
