Anybody is welcome to write for us and submit an article. Simply type or paste your words in the special Submission Form found on the page you would like to submit an article to. There are currently two pages that accept guest articles:

  • Do You Remember When

  • Building an Aeolian Harp

Once on the page, click on the link where it says "Click Here to See the Rest of the Form and Complete Your Submission" to expand the form. Submitting is easy and fun. There's no member login or registration needed.

Who knows?

This might be your chance as a would-be author to finally get noticed!

You will be creating your own web page to share and reminisce on, so you'll need to write a minimum of 400 words so your article can get accepted and properly indexed by Google, and the other major search engines.


Your article must be in your own words!

We cannot accept © copyrighted content from magazines or other publications, nor can we accept content that has already been published on other websites. Google hates duplicate content.

We can only accept your unique, original content.

How to Publish Your Article

Step 1

Enter a page title (topic title). This will help people to find your article when they search for the topic on the Internet.

Step 2

Write for us and share your nostalgic thoughts and memories (minimum 400 words). It's your page to share what you want, but please follow the submission guidelines.

Entering your article is easy. Just type!

Your piece will automatically appear on its own special webpage exactly the way you enter it on the form. You'll have a chance to make changes or corrections before it's submitted for approval.

Note: I might need to edit it slightly for good browser display and readability.

Remember, you need to write at least 400 words for your piece to get properly indexed by Google.

Copyrighted (©) material cannot be accepted!

Also, do not include sensitive or private information that could cause offense or embarrassment to someone.

Writing Tips:

  • You might find it easier to compose your article in a word processor or text editor first, then correct any errors and copy and paste it into the form.

  • You can wrap a word or phrase in square brackets to make it appear bold for a title or subheading. For example [My Story] would show as My Story on the webpage containing your article.

  • Since most people quickly scan webpages, include your best thoughts in your opening paragraph.

  • Click the question mark (?) on the form for additional help.

Step 3

Read the "Submission Guidelines" carefully and click the box to agree.

How to Submit Photos

Photos always add interest to an article.

Do you have interesting pictures to upload? You can submit up to 4 photos. Maybe a photo of a treasured item, your first car, your first TV? Great! We'd love to see it.

Click the "Choose File" button and browse to find it on your computer. Then select it. Finally, add a brief description in the "Add Picture Caption" field.

Note: The maximum photo image size we can accept is 800x600 pixels. If your image is larger than this, you can reduce its size using any graphics software or a web-based image resizer such as Google Photos (for PC and Mac users) or the iPhoto's Export function on a Mac.

Any photos submitted must be either your own or known to be in the public domain.

Copyrighted © photos cannot be accepted!
