Is your article an original one?
If you’re looking to cross-post an article you’ve already published on your personal or company website, that’s completely okay! Make sure all of your submitted content is yours originally and that you’re not resubmitting your past work.
How long is your article?
Generally, we prefer 5+ minute reads, as they tend to perform best on Medium and it helps us make sure that the content you’re submitting is of high quality.
- Besides the above-mentioned criteria, the subject matter, timing, and volume are also taken into consideration when reviewing the submission.
