At CNCSourced we prioritize publishing high-quality content over everything, and to achieve that goal we sometimes post valuable insights and other interesting content from third-party writers. We’re open to certain submitted content as long as it meets our standards and rules listed below.
There are two ways for your content to feature on our site: either as a one-off guest post on a particularly interesting topic, or you may be interested in joining our team as a feature writer.
We do accept guest posts that meet our criteria:
The post must be about a topic that we haven’t already covered on our site.
The content cannot have already been posted elsewhere, or be a slightly modified version of your existing content, for example, a slight edit of a company blog post designed to post on our site. Fresh insights are a must.
Must cover a topic relevant to what we typically cover: CNC routers and machines, laser cutters and engravers, software and everything CAD/CAM, and other kinds of making.
Use a format suited to the topic. For example, some topics may suit an in-depth feature story and industry analysis, whereas others may work well as a listicle.
We write with the aim of coming across as a friendly, personable expert. We never skimp on the details when important, but also keep the pace fast and engaging, and positive.
Generally, pieces should be at least 1,000 words. However, the content quality and maintaining momentum throughout a piece is key — 500 electrifying words are far better than 1,500 words of fluff.
Must be properly format for publishing: correct H2/H3 titles, short-ish paragraphs, small file size yet attractive images, etc.
