InsiderBLM Editorial Policy

Do you want to write a guest post or start writing regularly for Relatively Interesting?

Please take a few moments to read through our editorial policy so you can get an idea of what we’re looking for.  Compliance with our editorial policy will improve the chances of your idea or article being accepted.

Suggested Themes and Tone:

Content should be related to science, economy, business, entrepreneurship, skepticism, critical thinking, morality, rationality, reason, philosophy, nerd/geek humor, interesting stats, futurity, maps, science fiction, and reviews of movies, games, books, and shows. Keep in mind the skeptical tone of the blog; if you’re trying to prove a point, use legitimate evidence from credible sources to back up your claims.  Name-calling, trolling, and defamatory or libelous content will not be accepted.

Take a look at our navigation at the top of the page to see the categories we cover.

We love to debate.  If you’re on the other side of the argument (say, you think that psychics are totally legit), then we still want your content – but know that your article is going to be read by the purveyors of science and skepticism… so a healthy debate may ensue!

Suggested Content:

Our articles cover a range of categories. We like posts explaining/debunking business in general, entrepreneurship, startup theories,  philosophy, economics, history, how stuff works, humor, psychology, logic, logical fallacies, incredible stories, facts, images, infographics, or videos from the sciences:  physics, biology, chemistry, astronomy, geology, (to name a few), the paranormal or supernatural… anything that you and our readers might find, well, relatively interesting.

Content Guidelines:

Your submission, article, or post:

  • Must be an original article that you wrote.  We’ll check to see if it’s an article that’s been written before using Copyscape.  Don’t spin an article that’s already been published.  If we publish your article and then find out it’s been plagiarized, we’ll take it down.

  • Must not be taken from the public domain (ie: don’t copy an article from Wikipedia).

  • If you are using other authors’ content or data, it must be sourced/cited and you must have the appropriate license for use.

  • Must not be an advertisement, “selling a product”, or deemed as SPAM.  We do, however, accept sponsored posts.  In this case, the content and link will be mutually agreed upon.

  • Must have proper grammar and punctuation.

  • Must not contain any content that is a violation of any law, or be considered defamatory, hateful, libelous, or infringes on the legal rights of others.

  • Must be unique content to InsiderbLM

  • Should include a list of suggested categories/keywords.

  • Should be approximately 500 words in length.  Longer articles may be broken into “parts”.  Articles that are heavier on media can be shorter in length (for example, top-10 lists with images).

  • Should include images or diagrams to help convey your points.  These must also be sourced/cited.

Note that if you don’t follow the editorial policy and guidelines, it’s unlikely that your submission will be accepted and published.  

We attempt to reply to all guest post inquiries, however, it may take longer for a reply during certain periods.  If your content clearly goes against our editorial policy, you probably won’t get a quick answer.  Be mindful that your email does not classify as spam, or we might not see it.
