There is no need to e-mail us the article, because all the blogs are checked and edited before being 'featured' on the main page. So you can post/publish the blog, and after we edit it and 'feature', you will receive a notification by email. It means that it has been checked, and then you can promote it.

I want to include the photos in my blog. How can i do it in a nice way?

The most important thing is NOT to copy-paste photos, but use the photo adding tab in the editor.

Click on the image icon in the editor, and in the pop-up window (as on the image on the left) you will need to:

1) browse your files to choose the necessary image;

2) choose the layout

3) make sure to add the padding (frame around the photo) - usually 10-20 pixels are enough

4) if you don't want your picture to occupy the whole screen, set the width - we recommend 350-400 pixels.

I am trying to publish the blogpost, but the system gives the mistake. What could possibly be wrong?

  • If you copy-paste the photo, instead of adding it through the editor (please follow the instructions on adding the image above.
  • Smiley! We have found out (by trial and error) that the system doesn't accept the smileys or similar emoticons
  • If you copy-paste the text from other website (it could have some hidden editing code). We recommend pasting it as plain text or via html tab of the editor
