Thank you for your interest in contributing your post to TechLekh. We’re excited! But please make sure to go through the points below. They are only meant to expedite the process by making sure that you will be well within our guidelines and that we would not need to refuse your post.
- The content should be detailed and unique.
- It should be of at least 500 words in length. If you feel like you cannot reach the minimum word limit, make it meatier by adding more details.
- The topic should not be saturated. That is, any topic that has plethora of related content available on the web would not be our preferred choice, unless you can add anything new to it.
- We do not accept spinned contents – that is, taking existing content and rewriting it just to make it seem unique.
- Although our Editorial team checks and corrects any grammar or language mistakes, we would prefer the articles to at least be free of spelling and grammar errors. This can be easily done with the use of Word tools such as Microsoft Word which has built in spell and grammar checker. We suggest that you use Grammarly and have your articles thoroughly checked and edited for any spelling/grammar error before you submit them.
- Please provide an author bio/byline/headshot information to go with the article. It should be at least 3 lines long detailing who the author is and what his profession is. Please see our Link requirements and Policies for more information regarding linking in the bio section.
- The article should be relevant to our readers. As most of our readers are from Nepal, we would prefer the article to be related with Nepal too.
- It should be bold, interesting and offer a clear argument.
- It should be written for an audience of technology enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, startup enthusiasts, gadgets and auto enthusiasts, information security enthusiasts, or similar.

Post Image Requirements
- Please provide images owned by you if you can.
- In case you do not have your own images, but have access to relevant images for your post, please provide the link to it. You need to mention the source of the image (link to the website/blog post, or social media profile from where you obtained the image) on your post.
