How to Submit a Readers Story

Sharing your story can be one of the best ways to give back and help others. We can all learn from each others successes,  failures, and experiences. Sometimes stories are instructive, describing how to do something.  Sometimes they’re inspirational, showing how somebody achieved success. And sometimes they’re object lessons, demonstrating how not to do something. Myself and your fellow readers would love to hear your story.

If you would like to tell you story, here are some tips:

  • Your story doesn’t have to be an example of what to do right but be aware that readers can get harsh with people they think are making dumb decisions. If you think you can handle negative comments, then go ahead and share examples of what not to do.
  • Keep things entertaining! Write naturally, as if you were sending an e-mail to a friend.
  • Length doesn’t matter (your story can be long or short). You don’t have to put the story in MS Word or any other format. Just type it up and send it over to prairieecothrifter (at) gmail (dot) com.
  • And if you need to be anonymous for whatever reason, be sure to specify that, too.

That’s it, really. I hope to hear from you!

PS: The best way to see when your story gets published will be to sign up for my RSS feed. I will also send out an email letting you know the date.
