Free Local News Guidelines

  • All articles need to be between 700-1000+ words
  • Articles should be checked for grammar and spelling mistakes prior to submission. We won’t accept anything that is full of errors.
  • Content must be original, pass Copyscape (we will check) and mustn’t be duplicated from any other website. Duplication will require immediate rejection.
  • Images should be from free to use sites such as ShutterStock, Pixabay or any other site that allows you to have the rights to the images. Please tell us which site you have taken your images from.
  • Ideally screenshots should be used to help improve credibility of any post you’re submitting.
  • Links are allowed in the article if they are to a resource site that is related to information you’re providing. One link back to your blog can be placed in your author bio only. If you would like a link back to your business website, please see our advertising page.

Submission Requirements

Before submitting a full-length article, please send us the title of the piece you want to write and a
small summary of what the article will be able. This helps to avoid having the same piece twice on
our website. After we have approved your topic suggestion you can then submit your article with
the following requirements.

  • Article must be the final draft when sending.
  • Images used in the article should be attached in a zip folder for us to access.
  • Author bio with author image should be sent with the article.

Due to the high influx of articles we receive, please allow up to two weeks for us to get back to
you. We will inform you if we like the article or if it’s rejected.

Please Note: My Digital Mate has the right to change, modify or reject any article we don’t deem
fit for our website. Sending an article in doesn’t necessarily mean that you are guaranteed a place
on our website.

Thank you again for taking interest in writing for us. We look forward to your contribution.
