  • No more than three external links in each post ( recommended links: useful information, your business/blog, and your profile.) More than three links are considered an advertorial and are considered sponsorship (you must pay for publishing).
  • You can publish articles that have already been published elsewhere provided that a) the original publication allows you to do so, and b)  that you name the original publication and c)  link to the the original article. A link to the original article does not count in the three allowed.
