Guidelines for Authors

BuildDesignCreate.com is striving to bring you ideas, creative processes, resources, tips/tricks, projects & online services, that we have always dreamt about offering.

Our aim is to become a quality, family friendly site, here to help themselves & others.  As we have all been told at one time or another, "Bigger is not always better".  As such, we don't mind being the small fish in the big pond, if that is what it takes to reach our goals.

In order to maintain a good, steady supply of up-to-date information, we are open to publishing original articles, write-ups, tips/tricks & the like...

We are particularly interested in articles from marketing/ecommerce specialists, programmers, artists & other creative souls who want to share their passion & knowledge of their particular craft.  We especially welcome those who have many years of experience working that particular craft, to help guide/teach others on how to get started or do things better.

Those that want to share their small tips/tricks that they only learned from years of experience; that would otherwise be lost if never written down or passed on to the next generation, are also sought.
