    Successful blogs on The TypeBar are comprehensive, backed by numbers and experts, and provide an interesting take on something in the world of PR. Our blog focuses on educating our audience, consisting of PR pros, communications, and marketing professionals. We are open to any ideas relating to the PR world that contain the following elements:

    2.) We only accept original articles that have not been posted elsewhere.

    3.) Correct attribution of stats, quotes, and images is expected. Please note: All data should be relevant and should have originated in the last two years.

    4.) Link one or two other OnePitch blogs in your piece. For example, if you’re writing an article on how to utilize podcasts in your public relations efforts, you can link to the Public Relations pillar and our blog on the ways to find the right journalists to pitch.

    5.) Link to two external sources in your piece. These can be other sources that affirm or further explain an idea in your article. Note: Image links do not count toward these two.

    6.) Please include no more than one link to your brand or company website in the body of the piece.

    7.) Any use of profane language and slang will not be accepted within blogs. And: no dissing of anyone or any products. OnePitch is a positive place.
