Mashable prides itself on being the voice of digital culture, but what can you do to get your article featured in their contribution section? It is important to note that the contributors to Mashable are often unpaid, with the worldwide exposure that their products receive being the incentive. The first, and arguably the most important step, is to pick your niche. Develop an area of expertise and stick to it, don't try and spread yourself to thin. Secondly, it is crucial to know the expectations of the editor. Editors want writers that are capable of producing impeccable content, that doesn't require editing or revision, content that will enthuse and enthrall the readers. The final step is to create your content, whether it's for your own personal blog or for you to circulate around the internet on sites like LinkedIn Pulse or BuzzFeed Community, get that content out there!
