- Word count. We have no minimums or maximums but posts typically run between 800- 1500 words.

- Bio and promotion. We do not compensate contributors for posts, but we’re more than happy to include a byline and a brief bio linking to your website and social accounts. Please keep your bio to 3-4 sentences.
We are looking for posts that will help our readers grow and feel inspired in the area of bone health. AlgaeCal readers are health-conscious, active individuals who are looking for natural ways and a holistic approach to health.
- Photos. We encourage contributors to submit original photos along with your posts. Dimensions should be at least 850 wide x 400 pixels tall.
- For recipe posts. Recipes that are rich in calcium, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals known to be beneficial for bone health. Please include an original, high-quality photo of your dish. Include the serving size, ingredients (with the measurements used) and directions on how to prepare the recipe. Also include an intro paragraph on why it is one of your favorites, how to serve it or what makes it a bone healthy recipe.
- For nutrition posts. We are looking for nutrition information on vitamins and minerals beneficial for bone health. Calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin K, inflammation, boron, Omega 3’s, protein, collagen and more.
- For fitness/exercise posts. We are looking for exercises and fitness posts specific to bone health. This includes but is not limited to posture, balance, resistance training, weight bearing exercise, yoga, pilates. Photos are encouraged to demonstrate the exercise and clear instruction on how to complete it. Assume the AlgaeCal reader is fit, but also keep in mind that there may be some limitations due to age and conditions (osteopenia/osteoporosis). So please include alternatives or variations to your exercises if applicable. If you have a short video (shorter than 5 minutes), we are happy to include that too.
- For medical posts. Such as recent studies, breakthroughs – explain medical jargon in a clear, concise way and in layman’s terms if possible. If you are referring to a study or making a health claim you must include your sources. Peer-reviewed scientific papers, academic journals or other credible outlets are the standard. This way, our readers can investigate further if they want to know more.
