2. originality & integrity

Originiality: Please submit original content. Shorter posts that call attention to a specific idea, innovation, story, or current event are fine, but it should still include some pearls of original thought. We want to avoid the internet "echo chamber" on Bombilore. Original, informative, and engaging content also helps us avoid a website full of "click-bait". While using catchy headlines such as "how-to," "top 10," "25 Reasons Why..." can be highly effective, let's not trick anybody into totally wasting 10 minutes of their precious life. Let's truly entertain and inform.  

Integrity: Please honor your hard work with a good final edit. Spellcheck! Grammar check! Please submit polished, tight, and engaging writing.

If you do not send properly attributed and accredited, high-res photos (just tell us who took the pic and/or link to where you found it), we will find images to fit into your piece. Videos are also welcome, as are mp3's if your post highlights music in some way. We can even add a Soundcloud feed!
