Starting July 1st, I will be able to nominate stories for Boosting. The contract is signed, I’m ready to help, but I need your best stories. I’m giving you a two week head start and some strong advice, so listen up.

Put in the “you”

This is Tech & Me. The me the you in your submissions — is important. I have had numerous submissions from people who don’t understand that. Their stories were good technically focused posts but had no personality. No opinion, no struggle, no triumph, and therefor not suitable for this pub.

Read the rules

I’ve also had too many submissions from people who didn’t bother to read the requirements. Here’s a quick reminder.

  • Black text on white background ONLY
  • Photo and screenshot attribution always
  • Alt-text on all photos and screenshots. Long press the image, click on the “Alt Text” popup, and enter a description — NOT A CAPTION
  • Title must be in Title Case. Use an on-line Title Case tool
  • If you use a Kicker or Subtitle, they must be formatted correctly with the small Subtitle option
