Dear Writers, It can be confusing what to write and what not to write when planning an article for Bandra.info or Powai.info. Below are some content guidelines from us to help you choose the right topic.
The content should be 100% original
We do a plagiarism check for all our articles. If the article is written using the desktop research method (DTR), there is a high chance that you will quote or cite sources. This cannot be avoided and in most cases should add to the credibility of your article. However, if our plagiarism checker finds more than 10/15% similarity in your content, we cannot publish the article.
We do not publish articles that have already been published elsewhere, unless it is a special case that we would consider reblogging.
The content should be personal
Every article should sound personal. It should not sound like it was written by a PR team of an organization. (bland reading). When you write an article, readers need to know that you have had experience and that you are writing because your intention is to tell the truth as you know it. So please, no PR release type articles.
The content should be evergreen.
Please note - We are not in the daily news and journalism business, so the content you write for us must be evergreen. Evergreen content is any content that ages well. In short, the relevance or value of the content is lifelong. Compared to news, which has a short shelf life, evergreen content is information that has lasting value.
The content should provide information in a way that solves a problem.
We want content that is entertaining and a pleasure to read, but at the end of the day, every reader who comes to read is looking for a solution to their problem. Readers read articles that answer their specific needs. This is where content research could be helpful.
