  • include at least one relevant hyperlink (open in a new window/tab)
  • not have any grammar or spelling mistakes
  • follow the aesthetic structure we’ve talked about (short paragraphs—generally 1-3 sentences, no dead space, text wrap, visual is high in the post, etc.)
  • demonstrate good SEO practices
  • be put in a category
