Submiting a new post as an author

Rule number zero is: Create compelling content! (compelling = original, surprising, unique, rich, positive, easy to understand, etc.)

Lightorialist.com works as a photography blog, so every post will have a small text and a number of pictures. You will use a simplified blogging editor for creating your posts and uploading your images.

First prepare a set of 6 – 10 images about a subject you choose for your post. You are free to chose your topics and is a good ideea to check the Marketing HowTo and research for sure-hit topics.

For best results the images should be high quality JPGs with the shortest side at 1080px. Watermarking your images with your signature is permited and encouraged!
