Right Help, Write Now
Are you interested in a particular issue in the environment, than be an Eco Expert! We want you to learn more as you research and write articles or blog posts on something you find fascinating about the environment.
We welcome, encourage and invite new contributions from our growing Eco Diego community. Here’s what you need to know to become a featured author for our TV show.
Are you the right person to help us write about the environment?
Word count: No minimums but posts typically run between 250-800 words.
Tone: Inclusive, accessible, and generally positive. Take a look around and see what we’ve previously posted.
Original Content: We ask that posts submitted be unique and original to “How Can I Help?”. We do not accept posts that have already been published elsewhere online or you plan to distribute on other websites.
We are NOT interested in SEO-driven submissions that are not in line with our philosophy: If you work for a content farm or are a freelancer who writes articles for the sole purpose of linking up keywords in an effort to boost SEO, we are not interested. If your submission or bio references or promotes a business or service that is not in line with our philosophy (e.g. an environmental gimmick), then we are not interested.
Our integrity as an engaging, entertaining, informative outlet and educational outreach resource for the community is essential to our growth.
Acceptance: Since we do not compensate contributors for posts, we’re more than happy to include a byline and your brief bio containing links to your website, Facebook, Twitter accounts, which we will promote when your post goes live. “How Can I Help?” is a great resource to promote what you’re doing and showcase the sustainable value in green living.
Guidelines & Tips:
Only one space after a period when beginning a new sentence.
RDF Productions’ “How Can I Help?” San Diego is the official title of this program. Other appropriate forms of the name include, “How Can I Help?” San Diego or simply “How Can I Help?”.
If your post contains links, please search “How Can I Help?” before linking to outside sources. We have a wealth of content that might be just what you’re looking for.
Personalization is always great.
Lists and numbered posts with tips typically do well, e.g., “5 Tips for Your First Solar System” or “10 Reasons To Go Green.”
Once your posts go live, please share with your friends via email, your website, Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media you use. The more people who view your post, the better it is for you and the better it is for “How Can I Help?”. If your post performs extremely well and you become a regular contributor (one post a week), you can earn a spot as a highly-coveted “Eco Diego Expert” on our homepage.
Sound good? Please email us the following if you’re ready to submit your post:

All of the above can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We love connecting with new contributors and try to respond within 3 days. Sometimes it takes us a few more due to the volume of submissions we receive, please understand and we look forward to your Eco Expertise.
