5. If you include images, infographics, videos, or screenshots, please provide proper credits. It means links to sources, not to companies’ home pages (unless stated by creators).
6. Your post will be rejected if it:
- Requires too many changes or edits (two attempts are usually the maximum)
- Contains affiliate or irrelevant links
- Promotes your products, services, or company. You can only do so in your bio.

- Reads like a press release or blatant advertisement

- Is too generic
- Re-hashes topics that have already been covered on Social Media Slant and elsewhere
- Plagiarizes or copies content from another website or blog
7. Personalize your pitch:
- I have a first name. It’s Cendrine, not Editor, Cedrine, Cndrine, Cadrina, or Cndr. Make sure you spell it right.
- Cendrine is a female name. (My photo is everywhere on this site, anyway.) So, please, don’t call me Sir.
- Introduce yourself. Tell me what you do and why you want to write for Social Media Slant.
- Share links to relevant articles that you wrote.
8. Note the following:
- Submitting a post does not guarantee its publication.
- I am extremely busy, so no need to email me every two or three days to check the status of your submission. I will only contact you if it has been accepted.
- You will receive no monetary compensation for your contribution(s).
- Only regular contributors will have official profiles and publishing privileges.
- I do not take pressure, blackmail, disrespect, and foul language kindly. Behave professionally.
