How to write for Medicowesome (And instructions for new authors)

Hello!

You can write for Medicowesome and share your awesomeness with everyone around the world! It goes on the "Submissions" page. If you want me to share your notes / knowledge / mnemonics on Medicowesome, email them to me (medicowesome@gmail.com) and I'll post it for you!

If you wanna be an independent author at Medicowesome, here's what you need to do:

Email me your id at medicowesome@gmail.com asking that you want to write for Medicowesome. I'll say yaay! Of course, yes! :D (You could also send a few sample blog posts and a fancy CV. jk.)

Make a blogger account (blogger.com) using your Gmail account.

Send me your email address. I will send you an author invitation, you must accept it within 24 hours.


Once you're an author, you can click on the new post button to write a new post:
If you will be using a computer or laptop to post your blogs, continue reading.
If you will be using the Blogger app on your phone to publish blogs, click here.



Your blog should have -

1. A title: 
I prefer you have concise titles on what the post is about. Make it a good title because that's what is seen on the contents page and writing "Random post" as title doesn't help!

2. Awesome content:
You can write your own posts, add your own images, notes (Don't use images from Google and avoid copyright issues) and mnemonics.

3. Labels:
Labels are important because they help readers go through a particular topic (Subject wise) on the blog with feasibility. If you don't label your post, it is likely to be lost in the sea of posts on Medicowesome.

Do NOT use them like hashtags on Instagram, Do NOT create new labels.



4. Page break:
When ever you add Jump break in your blog post the paragraph or text before the jump break is shown on home page of Medicowesome. It's like showing introduction of your article on the main website and being all mysterious :D
So in order to view the complete post users have to click on read more link. This keeps the home page clean!

5. Publish:
Once you publish a post, it will be online on the blog. It is automatically shared on Facebook, Twitter and sent to subscribers via Email. I'll upload it on Tumblr and other social media later.

If you are not confident about posting it all by yourself, you can run them by me. You can also Save as draft and it'll be visible to other authors.

Also, after you write 10 or more posts, I would like you to write an about yourself post. I'll link it on the about Author page :)

If you are using blogger app:
Always back up your text in another app like Google Keep and then copy paste to Blogger app because it has a glitch and I do not want you to lose your precious work < 3
You can't add page breaks on the app, so it's fine.

Perks of being an Author:
You add more awesomeness to your awesome self ^___^
You get to chat random stuff with other authors on Medicowesome Authors group
You get access to all Medicowesome study groups on Whatsapp :D
And lots more, I guess? lol idk.

That's all!

Welcome to the Medicowesome family. Happy sharing information and love! :)
