How to submit my own story

How to see a list of available stories you can write

Click on the top right icon of your avatar. You will see a link for "available stories" and click on that.


How to chose from a list of available stories

Here's what it looks like when you arrive at the stories available screen. You can CLAIM any article you like. Please click on CLAIM ARTICLE and only claim one at a time. Then complete the story and submit it for approval. Once complete, you may claim another story and write as many as you like. We ask that writers claim one at a time so that other writers may have a chance to complete work. This also helps prevent one user from claiming all articles, then not having time to finish them. If you claim an article, then please have it complete on the SAME DAY that you have claimed it.


Writing an article that you have claimed

When you claim an article, there will be some elements that are already completed for you. There are also sometimes notes left for the writer. It's important to follow the directions in the note and to leave pre-filled items as they are. When our editors complete a field for you, it is done in a way that will help our stories get more views and shares by readers.

Here is another page that shows you how to write the perfect article for Trending Views.

This screenshot of our edit article screen has more directions.


Stories pending approval and rejected

When you're at your profile, then you will see a link that says APPROVAL/REJECTED. When you click on that link, then you will see a list of stories that are pending approval and stories that have been rejected. If your story has been approved, then it will be live on the site and listed under the "articles" link on your profile.

Stories are rejected for various reasons such as having incorrect facts, too short, don't make sense, or any other reason. If a story is rejected, then you will see it in this list and it will have a reason. You can fix the article and resubmit it for approval. Don't be scared, most articles are approved and you do not have to be a professional writer.


How to upload picture galleries

Click on the upload button and chose to upload pictures.

Picture galleries will be approved if they have 15+ pictures and are interesting, funny, or worth sharing on social media. If it's a picture gallery that has tiny pictures or they don't make sense together as a gallery, then it will be rejected. A good example is "22 pics of the worlds fastest car" and a bad example is "3 pics of random things that don't make any sense next to each other."


How to upload a video

Click on the upload button and chose to upload video.

Most videos from Facebook and YouTube work great. If you have a custom video that you made on your computer or smart phone, then that will usually work too. We don't normally accept videos that are over 20mb, so please don't try to upload an hour long video. Find the short version and you have a better chance to be approved. Only upload videos that are worth sharing and you think are great to show people on social media.
