PEDAW Blog General Guidelines
- 500 – 1,000 words in length; up to 5 minutes for a video blog
- Original content (unpublished on any site)
- No triggering content: eg. specific numbers, weights, behaviors, or glamorized suffering
- Profanity: minimal use if any; please use stars ** to censor some of the letters of the word
- If you intend on sharing your story, please share responsibly by following NEDA’s guidelines: http://bit.ly/1zrHYHD
- No advertising products or businesses
Editing is the responsibility of the submitting author. Please ensure your blog is ready for publication.
- At PEDAW’s discretion, blogs may be edited for minor grammatical/spelling errors
- Triggering content, excessive profanity, or profanity that has not used stars ** to censor some of the letters of the word will be edited if it can be easily fixed. If significant revision is needed, PEDAW will request a re-submission
- Vlogs with triggering content will not be published; PEDAW will ask for a re-submission
- If the entry upon re-submission still has a significant amount of triggering content, no further submission of that item can be made and it will not be published
Body image, myth busting, how you practise self-care, your recovery story, how to prevent eating disorders, how to raise awareness, ways to reduce stigma, and anything else you can think of relating to eating disorders!
- You are welcome to submit a maximum of 2 images for which you have the rights to display (i.e. you own the images or have the rights to display the image). We unfortunately cannot include images that do not belong to you.
- Please submit photos with your blog and label images with your first initial and last initial with image number 1 and 2. eg. Jane Smith = JS1.jpg JS2.jpg
