Editing
All posts that appear on this blog are edited in some way. We rarely edit them heavily, but we will change titles, rework openings or conclusions, or correct grammar and spelling. Please don’t be offended by this—we’re just trying to make every post we publish as successful as possible.

Credit and Your Byline
You’ve worked hard to give us amazing content, so it only right that you also let us promote you. We provide this credit in a byline.

Bylines should be a sentence or two explaining who you are and what you do. Feel free to include up to two links in it. Your byline will appear at the bottom of your post.
