Write for us
DeskTime is a time tracking and productivity app used by thousands of companies and freelancers worldwide. Our blog is about productivity, team efficiency, employee management, work-life balance, and generally - about those 90,000 hours of our life that we spend at work.
If you're an experienced writer and want to write for us, we'll be happy to hear from you. That being said, we have some ground rules that we ask you to follow or we won't be able to accept your submission.
Here's what we're looking for in an article:
Pay attention to the structure and make sure it's easy to follow your flow of thought. Every article should consist of an introduction, body, and conclusion. When writing, always explain why are you mentioning a specific idea or concept, and how it helps you answer the question proposed in the headline.
We're looking for articles that are easy to scan through - short paragraphs, clear headlines, sub-headlines, bullet lists, images, etc. In the best case scenario, the reader should be able to learn the main takeaways by only reading headlines.
Use Grammarly (it's free!), ask a friend or hire a freelance proofreader to edit your article before submitting it to us.
Please, do not pitch:
