You will have a form to fill out allowing you to submit all necessary details of your article.

SUBMISSION SPECS: You will be requested to upload a well-written, edited article that is between 300 – 800 words in a Word Document or PDF file format within the submission form.

Your article should be educational, inspirational, motivational, informative or story-telling in some way. The reader should walk away with a feeling they gained something valuable, NOT feeling like they were ‘sold to.’ We will not publish articles that are a ‘sales pitch’ for your product or service. Provide written value and they will seek out your services.

In the body of your article, you can include one outbound  link. If you have multiple links or sources, only 1 will be hyperlinked so please be sure to specify in the “Comments” field in submission form.

IMAGES: Our blog theme has strict image requirements and if you choose to submit a Featured Image with your article, they MUST be rectangular with a 3:2 ratio and not contain text. You’re welcome to submit an image, but typically we provide our own Main Featured Image for several reasons. If you submit an image and we do not use it, we will do our best to find another image that is aligned with the one you submitted. Images for the BODY of your article are awesome! We welcome images depicting visuals of what you are writing about.

Videos to accompany an article are a great and you can add your video in the form. Please be sure it is uploaded to YouTube.

Do you need a little inspiration for a blog topic? Please see the list below.

If you are submitting for a blog series, ALL articles in your series must be submitted in order for your series to be scheduled. A series would be defined as a minimum of 3, maximum of 7 articles surrounding one topic or theme. Writing a series is a great way to position yourself as an expert in the area of wellness that you represent. Please fill out 1 blog form for each article in your series and specify which part in the series it represents. (Part 1, Part 2, etc.)

If your article is published on The Wellness Universe, you cannot publish it anywhere for at least 30 days  (including your own website/blog). Likewise, if you have published your article on your own website or elsewhere within the last 30 days, please wait to submit it. This is important because your content will be penalized by search engines and receive a much lower ranking.

*HELPING YOU SHINE! We share your article to over 1 Million Followers on social media the day you are published. We tag your handles when shared as an extra opportunity to increase your following. The day your article posts, you are kindly requested to support your own content by sharing it and replying to your comments (Please check often the day of and the days following as you will not receive automated notifications).

  1. Benjamin Bingham

    Can I claim #109 We all make the world a better place? I would combine excerpts from my book Making Money Matter and a You Tube Video of a song I wrote: The World Needs You!

  2. Dawn MacLaughlin

    I’d like to claim #13: 5 tips to get more out of 24 hours. I’m also interested in #112, but 30 tips feels like a lot. Preferring quality over quantity, would you be interested in 10-20?

    1. Ashley Brewer

      Hi, Dawn

      I have you down for both #13 and #112. Yes, if you feel your article would be more well-written with lesser tips, focus on 10-20 tips instead of 30 ? Once I receive your article submissions via the form, I will confirm your scheduled date of feature ❤️

  3. Donna Burgher

    Hi 🙂

    I would like #56 Focus on The Positive & Attract A Better Life
    #94 What is ‘Awareness’ & How it Changes Your Life
    and I would like to suggest this but I am open to a different title –
    The new addiction – smart phones, tablets, laptops – Oh my!
    Unplug this summer! Enjoy 15+ Fun Activities for parents, teens, and kids to raise their vibration!

    Thank you
    🙂 Donna

    1. The Wellness Universe Post author

      Hi Donna! Excellent 🙂 @ashleybrewer will work on the titles with you to come up with something shorter, but those topics are Fab! You have been assigned all and Ashley will work with you on due dates. Please do the summer one first ASAP.
      Thank you!
      Anna

  4. Zeena Dhalla

    Hi there are great ideas. I would like to work on #88 and elaborate on it a bit more. I would like to write “5 Tips to Eliminate Pain from Poor Posture”. Let me know if this interests you!

  5. Ilene Dillon

    Hi, Ashley,
    Is #137 taken? “Is Holding Back Your Emotions Healthy?” It’s a great follow-on for me.
    I’d also like to propose a monthly spot on “Wellness Through Your Emotions.” Interested?
    Thanks,
    Ilene

  6. Sharon Smith

    Hello,
    No 56 Focus on The Positive & Attract A Better Life if it is still available.

    I would like “The Ultimate Guide to Maintaining and Restoring Your Mental Health.”

    I will create a series of articles addressing a wide variety of specifics in this blog series including dealing with emotions, causes of emotions, emotion regulation, advanced and transformative stress management skills.

    Thank you.

  8. Orly Amor

    Hey WU
    I have a Series I would like to Start with Called -Your Mind Does Not Know The Difference : The 12 Statements to remove/change in your vocabulary while Thinking and Speaking. This is an Excerpt from my book coming out in the fall “The Twelve Powers We Hold Within – The Ultimate Paradigm Shift.” The Series will cover one of the Chapters. Looking forward to sharing.

  9. Anesa McCleanon Parker

    Hi WU,
    I would like to work on #4 Transitioning to Vegan? 3 Satisfying Recipes
    Thank you.

  10. Wendy Mackowski

    If it’s still available I’ll take #79–What is EFT and Why does it work? I actually have two articles “EFT tapping: 5 Reasons To Try It Now!” and also, “EFT tapping: 5 Reasons People Don’t Try It!” Should I submit them both instead as a series, or rewrite them into one article with your title? I am new here, so how often can we submit articles?

    Thank you, Anna!

    1. The Wellness Universe Post author

      Hi @wendymackowski – #79 is yours 🙂 You can submit as often as you like, and Ashley will schedule several weeks apart. You can submit your other articles as long as they have 1. Not been published elsewhere or 2. Has been at least 30 days since published. It’s your call, please see the word count guideline. Looking forward to welcoming you on as an author!
      🙂

  11. Suzanne Kane

    Hello, Ashley:

    I submitted a suggestion for a 4-part series several days ago, but I don’t see this anywhere on the site. So, here’s my suggestion again. I’d like to write a series about time: time-saving tips for early risers, my 10 favorite ways to waste time, 10 biggest daily time wasters, and 7 tips to use time wisely. Can I get an OK? All the articles have already been written. Just need the go-ahead to post.

    Regards,

    Suzanne

    1. Ashley Brewer

    Hello there <3,
    These are great titles and topics… may I claim two of them:
    55. Being a Better Listener, So YOU are Heard and
    130. There is Nothing Wrong With You

  17. Bernadette Eata

    Hi Ashley!

    There are all very great titles and topics, although, I have some topics of my own that I would love to share and write about. My topics apply to multiple titles listed, so it’s kind of hard for me to choose.

    Is there some way we can message each other so you can go over my ideas and tell me what you think?

    Much love,

    Bernadette

    1. Anna Pereira
