Originiality: Please submit original content. Shorter posts 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 is our goal. 

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

3. Images are a must! 

Please send properly attributed and accredited, high-res photos if you have them (just tell us who took the pic and/or link to where you found it). Or, we will find images to fit into your piece. We like clear, crisp images that include lots of natural landscape and/or capture what it is to be human. In some cases, we may opt for images for your post that fit our ethos and we feel will best highlight your post content. We'll let you know if this is the case. Videos are also welcome, as are mp3's if your post highlights music in some way. We can even add a Soundcloud feed!
