Tone of Content:

When it comes to writing for TMB, tone is everything.

We are a space for you to have your unique voice, and to do so in a way that appreciates our mission and values. Please ensure your tone is inspiring, informative, open hearted, inclusive and positive. Please help our readers to grow through whatever messages you share.

We absolutely are not about sarcastic, dictatorial, or polarising approaches that create division. So as a guest writer we invite you to contribute and collaborate with us in bringing a unique voice to the platform.

Some Guidelines:

Below are the guidelines for guest writing for TMB. Please check these out before submitting an article or video.

  • Submit Original Article: Posts must be unique and original to TMB. Posts must not have been published or submitted elsewhere online or offline (including your personal blog) or be used in future for distribution on other sites (blog, YouTube, etc ).
  • Bring Your Unique Voice & Passion: We share a wide range of topics and have a large body of material available . You can add value to this existing collection by bringing your own unique voice and views, infused with your passion and personality. Please write from your heart, based on personal experience and/or professional expertise, and please write as if you’re talking to a friend. The more down-to-earth the better. People love to feel like they’re reading something written by a real person, with real experience in life, and genuine heart.
  • Choose a Great Title: Readers have so much selection available to them for what to read on the blog. They choose quickly (within seconds) what articles to open, and your article title is what will help them decide. When choosing a title, think about the reader and what they’re looking to learn, discover, achieve, or the problem they want to solve, and then write your title to clearly speak to their need.
  • Use a Captivating Opening Statement: A reader will be captivated, or not, within the first few sentences of an article. Please ensure your opening paragraph is engaging, tells the reader exactly what they are about to experience and makes them want to read on as they know they are about to gain benefit.
  • Proofread and Edit Before Submitting: Please do your own quality checks on your article before submitting to ensure it is a high standard of written English (proof reading, spelling, and grammar). For videos, please format and edit before submissions.
  • Include screenshots and Images: The more images and text you provide the more you earn.
  • Reasonable Length: We expect articles to be between 750 – 1500 words and videos about 8 – 10 mins long.

  • Don’t send vague, surface level articles: Our mission is to provide high quality content to the world that has real substance based on personal experience and/or professional expertise.

  • Don’t send SEO-boosted or promotional articles: We can’t accept articles that are designed to boost SEO, to plug a brand name, or to promote yourself, or any product or service.
