The following are guidelines that our blog writers follow in publishing content on our site.

1. Our Blog’s Objective

Our blog is a major component of our website. Through our blog, we provide valuable information to our readers. It is through our blog that we can build trust and sincerity with our readers. It is crucial to our business that our blog is able to pump out quality content.

2. Our Content’s objective.

A Peek to Wellness wants every blog posts to provide information on the topic that it is covering. No matter what the topic is, our readers should be able to take at least one takeaway from the posts. They should be able to apply that information through a certain action, whether that is through starting their independent research or making certain adjustments in their lives. Because a large part of our blog also depends on trust, we want to provide resources and sources for many of the information that we provide, even if that source is us.

3. Topic approval

We try our best to provide the information that our readers are seeking. It all starts with a certain topic because through that topic, we begin our research. As much as we love research and reading articles, if our audience is not searching for that information, we aren’t providing valuable content. Therefore, topics go through some additional work before we begin working on them.

4. Our linking policy

We conduct research to provide much of the content in our blog. This includes linking to articles and/or websites that served as our resources. We strive to give credit when its due. Websites like healthline.com and pubmed.gov are websites that provide a lot of trusted information and much of our information will have references from them. If this is the case, we want to provide at least two reference links.

5. Our photo expectations.

We want our readers to be engaged in the content that they are reading. A great part of that reading experience is visual stimulation. That comes from images and videos. If we can keep the visitor entertained, ten they are more likely to connect with our information. We want them to be connected. So, we want to use images and videos to make that possible.

6. Style and formatting tips.

Try to write in short sentences. The longer the sentence, the more likely to be confusing. Most paragraphs should be 1-2 sentences long. As such, they should be about 1-3 lines long. Don’t be afraid of the white space. We are need small breaks from time to time. Each white space you introduce equals a break for your reader.  Try to have a headline every so often. Make those headlines bold. If you can give a breakdown of a topic, make it into bulletpoints. If you are creating a list, try to have the first words of each bullet point bold.

7. Our content review process.

We usually do not publish articles right away. We are all human here, and we make mistakes. So we take time to comb through our articles for any such mistakes. We also go through our articles to make sure that they are of quality. Do they have the best information, we could find? Is that the best way to describe that?
