Ah, a fresh mind ready to contribute to Blackoute — Welcome to our delightful corner of the internet, where we’re all about uplifting, inspiring, and empowering the Black community. Before you start typing away, take a moment to digest these few (but vital) guidelines, so your submission doesn’t end up like Martin’s momma’s bird. We wouldn’t want that, now would we?
- Be Original: Surprise us with your own literary masterpiece, or share an existing article that’s a hidden gem. Just remember, we’re looking for content that aligns with our mission, not a gossip column, who’s pregnant, or who just got arrested.
- Stay Positive: We’re all about good vibes here at Blackoute. We won’t entertain stories that put our community down or reinforce negative stereotypes. So, leave your drama at the door and bring us the sunshine.
- Fact-Check, Fact-Check, Fact-Check: We’re not in the business of spreading fake news. Ensure your sources are credible, your facts are straight, and your content is well-researched before hitting ‘submit.’
- Keep It Clean: Profanity, explicit content, or anything that might ruffle our sensitive feathers? Not on our watch. Keep it classy and family-friendly, please.
- Eloquent Expressions: We appreciate proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Your submission should be a pleasure to read, not a headache-inducing mess.
So, there you have it! Now that you’re well-versed in the Blackoute way, go forth and shower us with your inspired, empowering, and uplifting stories. We’re waiting with bated breath.
