For the "Blog This" forum category:
If you are interested in blogging, you may set up, in your account, an additional username under which you are willing to disclose your actual name as a writer or as a writer under an alias name. This is to protect your poster name (which is to be set up in your profile) in the support group. So, one name as an anonymous poster, which is what we are in the support group and (should you choose) one name as a blogger, which would be your actual name or alias as a writer - your choice. Blogger name would be the name in your account which is the same name that you'd use as a blog commenter. You would change this name in the field is pre-populated with the first part of your email address. It is your user URL. You can change that name to either your existing poster name or to a blogger/commenter name any time you'd like.
If you are an expert or on your own journey toward living a healthier life - and you would like to share your discoveries/challenges/tips/favorite product reviews/etc. as a submitted blog - this thread is for you. Our admins read this section in order to publish thread posts as blogs that might appeal to our readers.
Even if your post is not published as a blog, it can still be viewed in this forum category. The above forum guidelines also apply to such "Blog This" posts. Additional guidelines for this category are below:
1) To post in "Blog This", understand that neither SaladEaters.com nor Array Industries, nor any of its affiliate companies is obligated to publish your post as a blog.
2) All posts that are published as blogs are solely for the purpose of sharing your own personal experience. These submissions for published blogs on SaladEaters.com are NOT for hire. We offer this opportunity for your own personal (or professional only as it may legally apply) portfolio to utilize and share as you choose - as your own liability, with no liability from SaladEaters.com. We offer no affiliate-related or advertisement-related commission nor flat payment of any kind for published posts unless otherwise communicated by SaladEaters admins (not moderators) with a follow-up of written contract. You, as the writer may share your published story/blog/post as you see fit, indicating the origin of your blog as SaladEaters.com.
3) We will NOT ever knowingly publish any post or blog under/in support of plagiarism. We refuse to facilitate acknowledgement of authorship to anyone falsely claiming creation of someone else's work. Should we discover plagiarism, we will ban you from our website indefinitely. Therefore, credit authors and list your references within your posts or blogs.
4) We reserve the right to revise and edit all posts/blogs as we see fit without taking from your right as an author. Therefore, please refrain from using all vulgarity, reference to inappropriate sexually suggestive language, profanity, and human bashing. (If you as a writer are in doubt about any of this being an issue within your post or submission, you are encouraged to ask our admins or moderators for guidance.) Such usage of language will also be followed with necessary revisions in your posts/blogs.
5) You are absolutely welcome to list your own personal website, credentials, and any other tastefully appropriate information about you on your blog submission AT YOUR OWN RISK. Bare in mind again that this is the Internet. Trust NO ONE. A website about your health-related business operated online is safest.
