Article Submission

Article Requirements

  • Must Be Original - All articles must be 100% original content, not copied from anywhere else. All articles are tested for plagiarism. Authors committing plagiarism will have their articles rejected and their current and future articles automatically rejected and/or removed.
  • Required Word Count - Articles must be at least 300 words. There is no maximum word count. More is great if your topic requires it. Do not pad your article with words that add nothing to the article.
  • Articles must be based on personal experience. I'm looking for well written articles with helpful and accurate information. Personal stories are great, as long as there is a take away value for the reader.

    Take a look at the articles I already have on Simply Canning. I've included my personal experiences with practical tutorials. You need to be able to write in a friendly conversational tone. No Wikepedia type articles. Humorous or lessons learned articles are welcomed as well. (we've all learned a thing or two in our lives eh?)
  • Articles must not include affiliate links.To do so would not be fair to my paid sponsors and affiliates. If you wish to purchase advertising please review my advertising policies and contact me.

All articles MUST comply with USDA recommended guidelines for safe canning and food preserving, NO exceptions.
