Writing and sharing a story about how you or a loved one has been affected by dementia can offer some relief for both the writer and the reader. It provides an opportunity to express emotions and experiences related to dementia. However, not all submissions can be published, as everyone’s experience with dementia is unique. In this article, we will provide guidelines on how to write a blog about dementia for blogginghelpline.com. We encourage you to describe your personal experience in your own way. There is no right or wrong way to share your story.
Guidelines for Submission
If you have an idea for your blog and would like to discuss it before writing, please contact us. However, please note that we cannot publish blogs that promote commercial products, services, or companies. Additionally, any dementia advice or information provided must align with the information on our website.
Adding pictures to your blog can bring it to life. We recommend attaching 1-2 images when you submit your blog. These images can be old or current, but they should be of good quality and in focus. Landscape-oriented images are preferred. The images should be at least 860 pixels wide. If there are multiple people in the image, please provide a caption. If you prefer to remain anonymous, you do not need to use your name. Just let us know your preference when submitting your blog.
Submission Process and Publication
We aim to reply within 1 week to confirm if we can use your blog. However, during busy periods, it may take longer. We may make slight changes to your blog, such as adding headings or reorganizing paragraphs. However, we will inform you of any changes before publishing. Please email your finished story and images to [email protected], along with a few details about yourself that you are comfortable with being published. Due to our advance content planning, it may take some time for your story to be published. We will try to confirm the publication date with you in advance. Once your blog is published, you will be able to view, comment, and share it on our website.
Promoting Your Blog
We may promote your blog on our digital channels, including our official social media accounts and email newsletters. This can help reach a wider audience and raise awareness about dementia.
