Articles should have a business casual tone that is conversational in nature but follows clear grammar and punctuation rules.
Articles are anywhere from 1000-2000 words, depending on the subject matter and the angle/approach taken. The titles should be pointed, sharp, and to the point.
Write for the Reader
All articles are written to provide value to the reader along a number of various internet-related topics, how-to's, comparison pieces, reviews, etc.
If you want to provide an image or images, they should be provided at a max size of 1200px wide @ 72dpi and can be uploaded with your submission as a .PNG or .JPG. File size is limited to a max of 150kb.
Author bios submitted should be no more than 40-50 words total. If you choose to submit a photo, photos should be 400px x 400px.
Pay for Posts
We pay for quality blog posts that meet the needs of our website and address common problems, solutions, software and more for our readers. We currently pay between $50-$150 for posts based on topic, complexity, and length.
We buy all rights to your post so it should not be posted anywhere else when submitted to WTA.
Longer content is by assignment only at this time. Please do not submit ideas for articles longer than 2000 words.
Send your post ideas via the form on this page or via email to [email protected]. File extensions we accept for ideas or posts are (.TXT, .DOC, .DOCX, .PDF, and links to Google Docs). Any other format will not be opened.
Original Content & AI Generated Content
We only pay for original, non-plagiarized content that is well-researched and written by the writer, not by AI technology. If we suspect your work is not your own or has been powered by an AI writing assistant, we will not accept or publish it.
WTA uses the following style guidelines for all articles published on the website.
H1 Article Titles
Ex. Capitalize The First Letter Of Each Word
Ex. Capitalize the First Letter of Major Words
H3 Sub-headers in support of H2s
Ex. Capitalize the First Letter of Major Words
H4 Is used only when sub-headers are needed for H3s
Ex. Capitalize the first letter of the first word
None of the headers take terminal punctuation unless a question mark is needed. Sentences that have quotes around words that end a sentence encapsulate the punctuation, ex. “software.” or “software?”
All list items, ordered or unordered, do not receive terminal punctuation.
Choose link text that is concise and precisely related to the content being linked. Do not link terminal punctuation. Use shorter anchor text for your link, never link an entire sentence.
Each image should arrive with alt-attribute text that describes the image for those who cannot see the image. The Alt text uses sentence case.
Sentence Structure & Punctuation
Commas: Use the serial comma (the comma preceding the “and” before the last element in a list) except in article titles.
Company and publication names: Capitalize the names of companies according to each company’s preference unless they begin a sentence, in which case they must be capitalized.
Em dashes: Do not leave a space on either side of an em dash. Use the en dash for enumerated date ranges.
The words “internet,” “net,” “web,” and “website” do not need to be capitalized when used in sentences. E-mail or email is acceptable as is e-commerce and eCommerce, with the appropriate capital letter.
When using title case, capitalize the first, last, and all other major words. Lowercase “and,” “but,” “for,” “or,” and “nor” unless they are emphasized in a particular heading.
