Submissions

Conservelocity welcomes submissions and invites posts from guest bloggers – especially if they’re kinda quirky. You do not need to be a professional writer to join the party.  We’re looking for passion and purpose that fit our theme, which focuses on political and current event commentary from a conservative perspective.  Caveat:  Please do not submit the post equivalent of War and Peace.  Tolstoy beat you to it. Here are some basic guidelines:

Original: Fresh, original material is preferred. If your post has been published elsewhere, it won’t necessarily be turned down. Just indicate when and where it appeared previously. Please include links back to the site and appropriate attribution. If you post your submission to your own blog as well, please link back to this site with the following text: “This was written as a guest post for Conservelocity” (where Conservelocity is a link to this site) .

Quality: Please double-check your submission for proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc. We may do brief edits for clarity, but we do not have time to completely re-write a sub-standard submission. Do your homework. Don’t embarrass yourself with sloppy or incoherent content. The world doesn’t need any more Rachel Maddows.

Length: Posts between 250 and 500 words are perfect! Remember that you have five to seven seconds (maybe less) to grab a reader’s attention before they move on. Nothing dissuades a potential reader like a solid wall of text. Break up your post with graphics, photos, videos, quotes, etc. if at all possible. If you post something over 750 words, please use the “More Tag”  in the toolbar menu to split your content after the first paragraph or two.

Biography: Link up! You may include a brief bio with your submission (3 to 4 lines). You may also include up to three links to your blog, social site, or twitter feed plus a photo.

Refusal: Conservelocity reserves the right to refuse guest posts for any reason, including contents with profanity, vulgarity, or otherwise objectionable content. Sometimes a post may not be the best fit for this blog. Please understand if we can’t use your content and don’t take it personally.

General Content: This blog is G-rated. Got that?

Join the Team: If you want to join the Conservelocity writing team, contact us at: Conservelocity@gmail.com. A writing sample of not less than 250 words and no more than 750 words is appreciated but not mandatory. Contributing authors are expected to help promote Conservelocity by sharing links on their social media outlets, blogs, etc.

    The IRS’s vast new ObamaCare powers.

    Listed above are the latest headlines related to what we call “Obamacare”. After reading each article I can say that I am not the least bit surprised. In fact I expected all of it. It is simply another tax. Tax them for healthcare and provide very little of it leaving more money for us. Just look at the social security system that another liberal in another time implemented, was it ever really in lock box or was it just a slush fund? Nearly 50 years ago Ronald Reagan warned us against universal health care and the ramifications it has on a free republic
    I am not concerned one iota about myself. I am concerned about my senior parents and about my adult children as well as my three grandchildren. If fully enacted,the lack of health care quality and accessibility for the current adult population is one thing. Quality of health care (or the lack of) and the financial burden placed on the current 0-10 year old generation will render the quality of life in this country as unfit to live in. When the translation of lies come out on the financial reform bill that just passed the senate and will be signed into law this coming week, it’ll make health care look minor.

    The communistic ideology, corrupt process, open bribery and blatant lies that resulted in the passage of this train wreck called healthcare is more than reason for the people to rise up and take action. The financial reform package should be a command to lock and load!

    As a Constitutional Republic, our best call to action is at the ballot box. Education and motivation to get involved is paramount to the challenge we have before us. We who read and write these posts are essentially preaching to the choir. The task at hand is educate and motivate those who are not currently “engaged” to get involved by, at the very least casting an informed vote. Not voting for who feels good or seems “fair”. Only principled, credible citizens are on my list of potential candidates for the primaries in August and November. My job is to educate as many people as possible as to why they are the right people to put in office.
