We’d love to have you! We accept bylined articles to be published on our blog such as “how to” articles and opinion pieces. Here’s what we are looking for…
100% Original Content
800 – 1500 words
Lots of screenshots
Lots of examples
We will inform you if your article has been accepted for publication, and you will hear from us within a week or so of our having received your email. If we choose not to accept your article, you will still hear from us. Articles accepted for publication will be edited for clarity and brevity and to conform to TheMetagrobologist house style. We will likely change your title, too, adding an image header to match our site and Facebook Page and you may suggest alternatives.
So, if you are interested in joining TheMetagrobologist on a one-time or a regular basis—here are some guidelines:
We are looking for articles or opinions on Mechanical Puzzles
News and Reviews
As the author, you will retain full copyright, but TheMetagrobologist may reprint your piece, with full attribution, on its website and within TheMetagrobologist magazine. We do not pay guest contributors for their occasional articles.
As well as bylined articles, which focus on how-to lessons and expertise, we also would be happy to receive opinion pieces that simply share opinions, voice an argument, or discuss mechanical puzzle news or current events—much like the pages of a newspaper. There are three types of posts that work well,
You share articles – In this article type, you will be sharing reviews or articles from your own blog or original content. You will explain what the article is about, share the information and present it to our readers.
You share expertise – In this article type, you will make recommendations to improve our readers understanding on mechanical puzzles, mechanical puzzle reviews, speed-cubing, recreational mathematics etc. based on your expertise in the field.
You share “how to” – In this article type, you will show the readers how to execute a specific tactic such as mechanical puzzle making using burr tools, woodworking, 3D-Printing, Origami making etc. Once again, use lots of screenshots and examples wherever possible.
Most importantly – be sure to include links to any articles you have written that are similar to what you would write for TheMetagrobologist.
