Establish Yourself as an Expert in DIY Through Discussions!

Last Updated: Feb 24, 2017 10:21PM EET
We got feedback that it’s important to bloggers to establish themselves as an expert in their DIY areas of interest.  Now you can share tips on our forum, Discussions!
  • Post a quick DIY tip (very simple & quick - takes just a couple of minutes) with a one photo.  A tip is something useful, but doesn’t have more than one or two steps, max.  For example: your trick for cleaning brushes after you paint.  
  • You can include new ideas, or repurpose pieces of your old content.
  • You can include a link to your blog so that people will visit, but the whole tip should be on the discussion.

The best way to structure a tip is in the following format:

Title:  Tip:  (Tip here that doesn't give away the punchline)
Body:  Details about your tip, a photo, your name and a link to your blog. It's also always good for engagement to end with a conversation starter, i.e. "what else do you use baking soda for?"
