Writing Best Practices

Well, you’re the expert. So, let’s hear what you have to say.

Join our community of over 100 contributing writers in providing fellow tech junkies with valuable high-quality content. Our readers come to Stackify bloggers like yourself for answers to today’s hot topic questions in technology. They’re looking to be educated, informed, and entertained. Here are some of the reasons our contributing authors choose to write for our audience:

The most successful blogs usually include the following best practices:

Article Title:

First paragraph: 




Try to always use headings. We use H1, H2, H3, and H4 headings in our posts. Be sure to properly set these styles. People tend to read the first few sentences and then skim blogs looking for a header that addresses their problem. Once they identify that header they take a deeper dive.


Include a royalty free image related to your article.  Your image should be sized 1024 x 512 pixels.  Our favorites are Pixabay and Unsplash.

Keep in Mind

So, what’s the next step?

Because we have such a large community of writers, we have to be strategic about what content we take and what content we can’t.  We have five steps in place to make sure your content makes it onto our blog.  

Step One: Email us at and let us know what you’d like to write about and why you think it’s a good fit. It’s always a good idea to link to a post or two on your own blog that you’re particularly proud of. (If you have a blog, that is. It’s not a requirement.) 

Step Two: We will provide you with a topic based on what you are interested in writing about.  We have a long list based on our extensive keyword research so we can work together to find the best topic for you.  

Step Three: Once we have decided on a topic, we will have you send over an outline.  We strive to publish content that is applicable for our highly technical, developer readership and want to make sure your article will be compatible with that.  

Step Four: After approving your outline, send over a draft of your article.  We will work together to make any edits needed.  

Please note: Multiple members of Stackify’s marketing team edit each guest blog article.  Sometimes, your article will be looked over by our product or development team, which can take a bit longer.  If you are looking to expedite the editing process, please ensure that your article is free from grammatical or technical errors and includes information about our products, Retrace and Prefix.  

Step Five: Once you approve our edits, we move forward with adding your blog to our publishing schedule.  Usually, our blog publishing schedule is booked out two to three months in advance.  We will schedule your article to publish as soon as we can. 

Please note: Once your article is published, we reserve the right to optimize your article for SEO purposes.  

Thanks, and welcome aboard!

A Little Bit About Us

After one too many unexpected late night code fires, we went searching for a set of application performance management tools to help us put an end to it. What we found told us what was broken, but lacked the ability to tell us why our applications failed, or how to maintain them and prevent the potential dumpster fire. So, we built Retrace and Prefix to do exactly that. From pre-production to deployment, it is our belief that when our 1,200 customers spend less time fighting technology they spend more time releasing it, and those new applications make the world a better place for all of us.
