**Proofread

Please have a friend or colleague be a second set of eyes, and review and edit your post before submission. I am terrible at proofreading!

After your submission, I will let you know if there are any changes that need to be made on your end, before it is published.

Promotion

Before your post goes live, I will send you an email with the link where it will be. You are welcome and encouraged to promote your post! Also feel free to write a blurb about it on your blog, the day that it is published, with a link to the article here on SBBDC.

Please check back often to keep up with any comments that come in, that day and throughout the week.

That's it. Thanks so, so much for your submission!

I can't wait to read your post.
