Editing

Quality content is important to us, so we will edit all articles before they are published. We will send your edited article to you before we publish it. We may also make grammar edits so that all of our articles are uniform. Here are a few items you can watch for as you are writing: 

  • Avoid passive voice as much as possible.
  • Use contractions (e.g. I’m instead of I am). It makes the post relatable and easier to read. 
  • Only capitalize proper nouns (e.g. God is “he” not “He,” “biblical” not “Biblical”). 
  • Use the Oxford comma (comma following the second to last item).
  • Eliminate unnecessary words and sentences as much as possible.
  • Vary the length of your sentences. 
  • Please limit the use of bold and italicized words.
