Guidelines for Articles
Hotlifestyle is a resource for everything related to better living, wellbeing, health, nutrition, self development, career and happiness. This is our premise and we strive to give our readers valuable insights into these topics. With that said, it’s important that all submissions contain information that our readers can relate to.
Please Note: If your article does not follow the editorial rules below, it will most likely not get published.
Tone: Friendly, positive, fun, upbeat. Slang or informal vocabulary is okay.
Audience: The majority of our readers are into yoga, tennis and healthy living.
Sources: If you take substantial parts of information or images from third party sources, please refer to those sources at the end of your article.
Images: Images are always great if you have them! Otherwise, we will choose our own.
Links: If you are just trying to get a link from us and/or send us a keyword-stuffed sales pitch about your business or product, this is considered a sponsored post.
What we Publish
Content that is edited with proper spelling, no typos, correct grammar and ready to be published. Be number one. ‘Top’ Lists and enumerated posts always do well, ie “10 Ways Yoga Has Changed My Life”, “Top 10 Songs To Pump You Up”, “10 benefits of headstands”.
Facts, information, backgrounds, interviews
Expert knowledge sharing, expert opinions
Valuable personal insights
Motivation, encouragement, humor
Recipes, instructions, descriptions

What we don’t Publish
