Guidelines for Posting articles

When writing articles, please keep the following in mind, remember to identify yourself, either by your real name or a pseudonym (a pen name).

If you are posting from a copyrighted source on the internet, only use the first three paragraphs from the article and link to the original source for the rest of the article. For uncopyrighted material, you may post in full but it is important to link back to the original source. Make sure you include the name of the author and the name of the original source, which must be hyper-linked.

If you need to take a look at examples, please use Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.com as your guide.

When possible, use hyperlinks in your article to point back to original sources. This is important because it lends legitimacy to your article and allows the reader to get further information on your subject.

The more concise and straight forward your post is, the more likely it will be read and understood. It is important you make your argument within the first paragraph and then expand on your point with factual information backing up your argument in the remainder of the post. Stay on topic and again, be as concise as possible.

Finally, grammar and spelling are important. When possible, use a spell checker and proof-read your post for both typographic errors and grammar mistakes.

Thank you, and enjoy our activist network
