If you have insights on web design, Webflow, and/or content, we want your words.
If you think you can help, we’d love to work with you.
First, read the rest of this page. If you don’t, we’ll know, and we won’t look at your work.
Then, send us your draft and your answers to the 4 Ws (below).
Before you get started on your blog outline, ask yourself the following questions. They’ll help you clarify why you’re writing it and how you’ll write it.
1. Who’s your audience?
We publish content for creative professionals and entrepreneurs who build websites and digital products. That includes designers, developers, and others who freelance or work at small businesses, startups, agencies, and enterprises. Your post should appeal and speak directly to one or more of these audiences.
2. What will they get out of your article?
We publish content that’s useful and/or inspiring. Ideally both. If your article doesn’t educate or inspire creative pros, it’s not for us.
3. Why should they read it?
This is similar to point 2, but should provide context for what your article teaches. So if your takeaway is “how to write better UX copy,” your “why” could be “because copy is vital to UX, and designers often have to write UX copy.”
Note that a handy resource can be a great incentive, so if you have a template for “how to write better UX copy,” include it!
4. How will they act on it?
What will readers do with what you teach them? How will they put your tips into action, and what are some ways for them to do this?
Write in a casual, personal, yet knowledgeable style, as if you were talking to a friend who’s really into design/web design.
Aim for clarity above wit, though you get extra points for managing both.
Use subheads, images, lists, blockquotes, and other structural devices frequently. You must have the right to use any image you include, and each should include a caption. Unsplash is a great place to find free-to-use images.
Awesome! Just fill out this form and include a link to your draft or outline in a Google Doc.
