FAQs

What should I write about?

Anything related to personal and professional development (i.e Confidence Building, Time Management, Leadership Development, Salary Negotiation,  Skill Building etc…). You can take a look through our archives to figure out which topics have already been covered. We like to keep our content concise, by using the “How-To” format, we ask that your article cover no more than 3-10 action-based steps to achieve a particular goal.

What are the requirements of posting on NerdyGirlsRock.com?

Our requirements are simple:
• All sources must be cited.
• We do not accept posts that are political in nature.
• We do not accept posts that are disparaging by race, religion, age, or sexual orientation.

Will the post be edited?

Each post is edited to look for simple typos and grammar mistakes. However, we expect posts that are submitted to us to be of the highest quality and should be submitted as FINAL copies that are ready to be published. Your post will not be published if it does not meet our standards either in writing style, organization, or content. Please note that the submission of a post is not an automatic guarantee that it will be published.

How will I be credited?

Each post will include your bio of about 1-3 sentences. Also please feel free to include a headshot if you would like us to include one. As previously stated, submission of a post is not an automatic guarantee that it will be published.

Who is the intended audience?

Our NerdyGirl readers are predominately women of ages that range from 17-35. We have divided our demographic into two types of NerdyGirls’:

1. Nerdy Girl Novice is defined as a person who is searching for personal development along with increased business acumen.

2. Nerdy Girl Professional defined as professionals looking for strategic professional development and additional career growth.

Both audiences are growth-focused, who have an active interest in the overall career development experience.  Our readers require a blend of simple/introductory articles for topics new to them and more complex, advanced pieces for topics they already specialize in. This gives us the opportunity to provide our reader-base with a balance of basic and complex articles, for them to tailor to their own needs.

What is the requirement for the length of the post?

Our posts range in length, but are usually 500 – 800 words, or more but no more than 1200 words. Generally, we expect the posts to be long enough to explore the topic but short enough to keep our readers engaged.
