ThingLink Guest Blogger Guidelines
...a note from Susan
Why I Blog
Blogging about teaching and learning experiences makes me accountable for taking the time to thoughtfully reflect and pursue ways to kick the learning up a notch. I learn more from blogging than from any other professional activity I participate in. Quite simply, I blog to learn.
Why We Ask Certified Educators to Blog
Blogging is perhaps one of the most powerful ways to grow as an educator. For many, blogging can become an essential part of the workflow, requiring us to dig deeper, engage in research, explain and reflect. As a life-long blogger, I believe blogging provides a significant piece in the learning process.
One of the big reasons we blog here on the ThingLink Blog for Education is to provide our community with ideas and inspiration for using ThingLink for teaching and learning. We celebrate the leadership of ThingLink Certified Educators and truly appreciate the strength that can be found within this community of learners.

A ThingLink 360/VR Image
Please include the link to your ThingLink in the Google Doc with your post. You can also insert a snapshot of the image for your own purposes, but we only need the link. If you would prefer to share a flat ThingLink image, please make sure you have used Custom Icons and highlight our Premium features..
One of the goals is for your post to appear in a search. For this reason, we try to focus on Search Engine Optimization, or SEO. Including ThingLink with Key Words in the title and subheadings, helps our content get discovered through a search. Here are more tips
The focus of your post is to tell the story around the incredible 360 image you have created and there is no need for lengthy posts. Short posts that explain the educational value behind the 360 image are great. Please make sure to keep your posts under 550 words, if possible
A Good Title
To keep the content organized for our readers who will skim anything they read, please use subheadings to attact their attention. If you include those Key Words or phrases above in the subheadings, it increases the SEO and even more people will find it
If you want to include more than the 360 image in your post,j please share the link to those images with us iso we can download them.
