International or Guest Poster tips on how to get your article published!
All articles should have something new and unique to offer our readers. An automatically generated, point-form-type article with recycled and obvious advice is likely to be rejected
We take article exclusivity SERIOUSLY. We use Copyscape to stringently check that all sections of submitted content are unique. If we identify that any content, in whole or part, is reproduced from any source on the internet, we will not accept any further submissions from that source
Articles should apply to the Australian female market - e.g. Mum not Mom, Australian references if applicable
Articles specifically relatable to Australian single mothers, containing relevant Australian references have an improved chance of being accepted for publication.
Links in the body of the article, or blatant advertising tactics will be automatically rejected
