Yes, a few simple guidelines, nothing major. This is just the boring legal mumbo-jumbo about no plagiarism and no affiliate links unless pre-approved, yada yada yada.
1.Submitted articles must be written by you the author and you must retain the necessary rights to such content. Copyright remains with you the author at all times. Plagiarized (i.e. unauthorized copied) content is not allowed and will result in immediate member termination.
2.Article submissions are by definition a complete body of work such as a blog post that addresses the topic fully by itself. The entirety of the subject is located inside the article submission in full.
Articles deemed to be advertisements or containing affiliate links, including those of inappropriate, irrelevant or otherwise unrelated nature, will be immediately deleted.
The Obligatory Fine Print
1.Effective January 1st, 2014, all new article submissions must be unique (original), by which meaning it does not exist elsewhere on the web at the time of publication on The HoliDaze.
2.All Photos submitted alongside your article submissions should be owned by you or otherwise include links that credit the owner provided permissible in the copyright or creative commons license.
3.Incomplete article submissions shall remain unpublished for a minimum of thirty (30) days to allow the author time to update and publish their story. Any partial articles that remain after this initial period may be removed from the database if no attempt has been made by the author to publish said article during that time.
4.If you are in the tourism industry and wish to submit an article, we'd love to hear your input. What we do not want to read is a biased and self-promotional "article" advertising you and/or your business. Be more creative than that! Write about the things to do in your town or provide helpful tips for foreigners. A well-written and useful article such as that will get a lot more shares than a self-promotial piece of crap that no one will read, and that in turn will lead to more traffic to your site from interested individuals and potential clients.
