Guest Post Writing Guide – Tips & Tutorials

Cooper-Moore Music’s readers are used to a particular writing format. This guide will help you meet our formatting requirements. The general goal is to deliver information to readers that is technically accurate, engaging, and helpful on a practical level.

General Instructions

Most articles should be between 1,000-2,000 words; this helps them rank well on Google. Some articles may not reach the minimum word count if they’re addressing a simple topic. However, it’s better to avoid adding “fluff” to your article than it is to meet the minimum word count requirement.

If the Cooper-Moore Music blog had a writing theme, it would be “all killer, no filler.” Primarily, the Cooper-Moore Music blog is meant to be educational. If something you’ve written doesn’t provide new information, ask yourself if it’s truly necessary.

When writing your tip/tutorial article, it’s okay to touch on complex subject matter, but you should deliver content in a way that’s accessible to people who aren’t audio professionals. Assume the person you’re writing your article for has only been producing music for a few months.

Speak to readers like you’re having a one-on-one conversation with them. Say “you” when referring to the reader, and “I” when referring to yourself.“It’s important to identify what you’re looking for in an audio interface before you buy one; this will ensure the audio interface you buy provides all the features you need.”

“Before catfishing you into rather expensive music production territory, I should mention that a lot of outboard gear is available in the form of analog-modeled plugins.” Refrain from saying “we” when you can say “you.”

Avoid referring to yourself and the reader as part of a group. For example, instead of saying, “We don’t want to wrap cables this way,” say that, “You don’t want to wrap cables this way.”
