General Info Regarding Submissions

Updated 12-29-21

Things to Remember

  • Use the blue buttons above to send in your content. We receive many submissions and inquiries each day and cannot respond personally to each one. If the form was submitted without an error message, your content is safe in our inbox!
  • Blog posts should be no less than 500 words. A word count of 750 to 1,500 is most desirable.
  • Please follow AP style writing guidelines. Please do not capitalize words to show importance. It comes across as yelling and while that may be okay on social, it’s not here. Use descriptions and persuasive writing instead. 
  • Don’t send us a holiday piece on the holiday or after. We schedule posts out and your piece will be too late. If you have a post tied to a holiday or important date, submit it weeks ahead of time.
  • Memes and videos should only be submitted in high resolution (nothing grainy, pixelated, or filmed poor lighting or audio).
  • When submitting photos with your posts, please make sure that your submission does not violate any copyright restrictions. 
  • We reserve the right to replace any submitted photos or graphics that accompany your post as well as edit for grammar and clarity.
  • Please make sure each submission is authentic, easy to follow, thought-provoking, and written with TRDOP’s target audience in mind.
  • Please do not use the back-end post editor located on the WordPress dashboard.  The TRDOP editorial team will take care of all post uploads, formatting, and publishing.
