Submissions for every edition will always open on the 1st of the month and close the 7th. Eligible post dates will run 7th-7th (previous month to current month). The edition you are submitting for will publish on or about the 15th of the same month. You are expected to re-post the edition per guidelines on your blog no later than the 22nd of the month.

By submitting your post using this form, you’re agreeing to the rules and guidelines of post eligibility for Elust. The full details can be read about here, however, here’s the quick n dirty:

~No posts that contain solely photos/videos/audio[1. Podcasters: If the post/page you’re submitting that your podcast is on also contains the transcript of said podcast, you’re eligible to submit]

~If you did not create most of the content, it is not eligible

~Participants are required to re-post the entire list of links within a week[1. If it’s not re-posted within 14 days of publication, you can’t participate in the next edition. If it’s not re-posted by the time the next edition is up, then you’ll be removed from the edition on the main site and from all participating sites who wish to do so]

~One submission per blog

~One submission per author (You may not submit something you have written something for another site as well as something you have posted on your blog)

~Remember, you won’t be getting an email with the codes, they’ll be over there in the sidebar, linked. You will still be responsible for getting the edition re-posted within 7 days of it publishing here. 

~NEW: Part 1: I’ve imposed a 45-character limit on blog post titles on the submission form. Please pay attention to this when you paste/type in your post title, as it will cut you off. If I receive a submission where it is obvious that you didn’t pay attention to this, I’ll ask you to re-submit and clean up the post title to fit. Part 2: That being said….Your post title as you submit it to e[lust] should exactly match the blog post title as you have it on your site, unless you need to shorten it for e[lust] in which case it should be as close as possible and it should not include your name. When you submit something to me where the actual blog post title is 100% different than the post title you gave me, I’m not going to include it. Simple as that.

~New: Part 2: Due to popular demand we have added a Category Guide which lists all of the options you have. You might want to read this before submitting

~Late submissions are not accepted



You’ll receive a confirmation email within 2-12 hours (depends on the server load) after you submit your post using this form. IF YOU DO NOT (especially if you do not receive it by the time submissions close), please re-submit or email me directly ( I can’t include in the digest what I don’t receive!

Thank you!
