At Nordic APIs, we are striving to inspire API practitioners with thought-provoking content. By sharing compelling stories, we aim to show that everyone can benefit from using APIs.

Blog Guidelines for Community Submissions:

Our blog is open for submissions. However, we only publish community contributions that satisfy these points:

  • API-related: We blog about web APIs. Your submission must be relevant to this topic.
  • Thought leadership: Not superficial, goes beyond common knowledge to tackle a specific idea.
  • Evergreen: Still relevant 18 months later.
  • Word Count: 1000-1500 words. We’ve found this is a minimum length for a quality, evergreen post.
  • Vendor-neutral: Don’t mention your company within the post. Unless we’re reviewing a tech on purpose, our content aims to have no vendor bias.
  • No Republishing: Please send us fresh stuff. We don’t re-publish articles that appeared on your company blog or Medium channel, and we don’t syndicate our content.
  • Grounded: Support claims with specific concrete details or references.
  • Clear direction and thesis: Ideas directly relate to and support a thesis. Information is concise and not redundant.
  • Use complete sentences and paragraphs: A bullet list is not an article.
  • Structured: Create a headline, and organize sections with subtitles.
  • Rough Edit: Use American English, and please check your spelling, grammar, etc. before sending it. Native and Non-native English speakers alike can use a tool like Grammarly.
  • Submission: Use the submission form below to pitch an article idea. Our Editor will review/respond quickly.
  • Format: Once your pitch is approved, please submit a draft written in Markdown within a Google Doc with editing capabilities. Not sure how to use Markdown? It’s easy!

We Do Not Publish Sponsored Content

Please note that we do not feature advertising, sponsored content, or content syndication on our blog. We also don’t add links to articles upon request. Emails unrelated to our subject matter will be ignored and reported as spam.
