February 24, 2015 at 12:07 pm

For the past months I have been thinking about a way to make WPR a better place, with more recipes and interactions from visitors. This is why I decided to open the blog to guest contributions. Wanna contribute to one of the top WordPress snippets blog and get some exposure? Read on!

So, how to submit your recipe? It’s very easy:

-Make sure your recipes fits the blog style of short and to the point style of writing. If you have a 800 word long article, no matter how good it is, WPR isn’t the good place for it. Read a few recipes if you need to get an idea about the style of writing.

-Make sure your recipe haven’t been published before, as obviously we won’t re-post stuff. Though if you have enhanced or modified an existing recipe, feel free to submit.

-Get the template located at http://pastebin.com/qf6EQDim and write your recipe. Make sure you respect the template style of writing otherwise your recipe won’t be published.

-Done? Create a pastebin, or save your recipe in a .txt document. Once done, simply contact me and say that you have something for the blog. If your recipe matches the criteria of quality, style of writing and have never been published on WPR before, expect to see it live within a few days!
