Our newsletter goes out to 50k subscribers. We recently changed up the design to include multiple articles in each issue, and now we're opening it up so all of you can contribute articles!
In addition to the newsletter, we'll be doing more to promote the best posts via our website and our social media channels.
I'm most interested in informative posts about recent events or trends that will help other IHers stay up-to-date with what's happening right now. Educational posts are great, too, but we'll be a bit pickier with those.
It's fine to write about a niche, but since our newsletter goes out to everyone, you should try to explain your topic in a broadly appealing way. You can also talk about wider tech or business news, but in that case you need to add context specific to IHers.
Obviously I'll prioritize well-written, well-edited posts. Header images are a plus. Any format is fine: a story, an interview, a curated list, etc. The more creative the better, in fact. Try to keep your posts between 100 and 400 words. It's fine to link to or promote anything you like, as long as it's subtle and/or naturally fits into the post. Alternatively, I can simply link to whatever you'd like.
Finally, I'll be more likely to take a look if you include in your email a short blurb about how/why your post is entertaining or informative for IHers.
