Contributor Guidelines

We are looking for:

  • Comprehensive, data-driven, interesting posts with great visual references that teach our readers something new about the world of home exterior design.
  • Original concepts, compelling arguments, and high-quality writing.
  • Articles that reflect the writing style and tone of LiveAbode (fun, friendly, expert, and a bit tongue-in-cheek).
  • Proper attribution of data, quotations, and outside content references.

We are not looking for:

  • Any topic that’s been specifically covered on our site before. Search our site to check. If you discover that your topic has already been addressed, ask yourself if the idea could be approached in a different way.
  • Buzzwords and jargon. Always keep it intelligent, original, and easy to understand.
  • More than one link to your company’s website in the body of the post (unless otherwise discussed).
  • Content that’s too promotional for your company or organization. We’re looking for un-biased perspectives. Ask us how your contributions can benefit your organization without a hard sell.
  • Information that’s inaccurate or misleading. Please do your research.
  • Perspectives that are critical of other people’s ideas, businesses, or tastes. We’re not interested in trash talk (unless you’re talking about a new way to organize trash cans).

Odds and ends to consider

  • Submissions must meet the LiveAbode editorial team’s quality standards in order to get published.
  • You’ll be expected to aid in distributing your LiveAbode contribution within your own networks (e.g. send to your email lists, Facebook, Twitter, and other social followers, etc.).
  • The LiveAbode editorial team reserves the right to edit and adapt your guest content as we see fit, and update it in the future for accuracy and comprehensiveness.
  • The LiveAbode editorial team reserves the right to include calls-to-action to other LiveAbode-related content.
