Before submitting your article
Get in touch to finalise the topic or send me the outline of your content.
- Article Quality: Articles should be a minimum of 1000 words and should cover the topic in detail. Incomplete details are like half-cooked food; no one loves incomplete articles. We take quality as one of the major considerations in accepting guest posts. To ensure your article gets published, write a very original piece that is written specifically for the HistoryVille audience.
- Unique: The article you submit must be completely unique to HistoryVille and not published via any other blog, website, magazine, book, or similar medium.
- 55-word biography: You may write a 55-word biography which will be included at the bottom of the article. Please note that although we are happy to include a link back to your own blog or website within the bio, the link must point to a site that is relevant to the article!
- Credit: We respect individual work and if your idea is derivative of someone else’s work, feel free to give them credit. The same goes for images that you use on your post. Please give credit where credit is needed.
- Image: Images speak a thousand words. Add images to convey your message, but don’t add them just for the sake of it.
Submitting a Video
If you are a video blogger, you can submit your video script to HistoryVille’s Youtube’s channel. Just create a video (it could be on the categories listed above or a documentary about a person, or place) send an email (email@example.com), and we will tell you how to submit videos. You can head over to our YouTube channel to check out some of the videos we have published.
- Self-promotion: We allow genuine contribution and don’t allow any backlinks or anything of that sort. But you will get a chance to build a brand for yourself by contributing a post/video to HistoryVille.
- Copyright: We respect everyone’s work. In case we find out that you have copied a post from somewhere else, you will get an instant ban and immediate removal of all your blog posts and profile from HistoryVille. Also, by submitting a post/video to HistoryVille, you give us copyright ownership of the post/video. This helps us to deal with any DMCA related issues.
- Comment: Comments are the conversations about your published article. Answer any queries related to your article via the comments. This will give you more exposure and help out your readers.

If we don’t send you a publication date via email within 21 days of submission, we won’t be publishing your article on our blog, but we might be able to make use of it on our social media channels.
