Frequently Asked Questions

What should I write about?

To get a sense for the type of work we publish, read our site! We write all about technology, we have categories like Mobile, Apps and software, Cars, Gadgets, Gaming, DIY, Blogging And WTF. To know further about these categories you can do survey in our site.

Do you pay?

Typically, no, aside from the occasional assigned post. When you contribute to The TechnoApt, you’ll get a byline and two-sentence bio that includes a link or two to whatever you’d like to promote — your website, Twitter feed, latest ebook, etc. We’ll also share your post in our newsletter, and on Twitter and Facebook, to help you reach as many readers as possible.

Can I repost my submission on my blog?

No. If we run your post on The TechnoApt, we retain the rights to that content. We don’t allow republishing on your own blog or any other website. (Did you know reposting content can hurt SEO traffic results for everyone involved? We try to keep it tidy around here.)

How long should my posts be?

Aim for minimum 800 words

Should I pitch you my idea before writing the post?

If you’d like to, go ahead.

Should I include links within the piece?

Yes. Please include links that will be helpful and relevant for the reader – they can be to appropriate posts on your site or on any other news site or blog. When you can link to other posts on TechnoApt, that makes us happy, too.

Insert links in your copy via anchor text or keywords, for example, like this if you’re writing about networking. No HTML, please!

Should I write a headline? 

That be great! We reserve the right to tweak it for SEO, style or just to make it more attention-grabbing. But if you want to suggest one, that makes our job easier.

Will you edit my post?

We’ll edit for content and clarity, doing our best to preserve your voice. You’ll be able to see our edits in your Google Doc.

Anything else I should keep in mind?

Posts should be written in blog style, with short paragraphs and lots of white space. Including a few sub-headings is much appreciated, and please use only one space between sentences!

Should I include a photo?

No need. We’ll add one.

What about my headshot?

Send us once all your details (In short) including headshot (your picture)

What should I do after I submit my post?

When it runs, we hope you’ll be active in the comments, responding to readers’ questions or thoughts.

We look forward to your contribution!
