Rules For Posting:

The Yoga Blog is a resource for everything related to Yoga, conscious living, healthy choices, recipes, meditation, and all around leading a Yogic lifestyle. We aim to give our readers valuable insights into these topics. For this reason, it’s important that all contributions are interesting and contain information that anybody interested in Yoga can make use of.

  • Long personal posts that are really made for close friends and family

The Meat (or Tofu) of the Post

  • Voice: Please remain at least relatively positive and upbeat, but don’t be afraid to give criticism either. Share your opinion directly, but don’t be a butt head. 
  • Citation: If you take information, please refer to those sources in your post.
  • Images: Add whatever pictures you think would work. We may add in some as well. 

Format

Your article should include the following:

  • Title: Try and think about it from the perspective of a reader. What would be attention grabbing to you?
  • Paragraphs: Separate your article into 2-5 sentence paragraphs. Many people on the internet like to “scan” articles. 
  • Subheadings: Subheadings allow a reader to further “scan” the post. Once again, this is great for the audience. They sum up main points in paragraphs or groups of paragraphs. 
  • Length: Articles should be above 350 words, and shorter than 750. We are lenient about this though. If you have an incredible article with valuable information you think people would get a lot out of, we will work with you. Don’t be afraid to ask. In the past, we have broken articles into a series of posts and people loved it! There may be other options as well :)
