What you receive for Submitting an article as an author on our site you receive recognition and writing experience for your work within a respected fitness and healthy lifestyle organization.

You can submit your articles and receive “contributor rights” to be moderated for approval and publication on this site.   We reserve all rights to use our sole discretion in publishing any article.  And that right is also reserved in deciding not to publish, or removal of any article at any MirrorAthlete publication Word Press site or any other posting site without explanation.

Copy Right Permission– When you submit your publications to MirrorAthlete, you simultaneously authorize exclusive rights and approval for MirrorAthlete to use your article publication linked to other MirrorAthlete articles, posts, pictures, video content, monthly newsletter, other social media sites or comment boxes wherever offered through our article postings, etc., including any other reader media and vehicle format to market and promote our site.  Once your content is submitted by your registered user “contributor” registration at our site, you authorize MirrorAthlete to publish your content in full where ever the editor/publisher determines a good fit and timing to publish within a 30-60 day window.  In most cases if the written work meets our criteria and standards the article will be published within 30-45 days if not less.

At a minimum we’ll always allow our writers a resource box with give credit to author, site, and business entity with one link allowed to “Contributors.” [exception – product literature links are not allowed and ground for removal from this site].

Leave Comments – As a writer contributor/author and as a registered user, it is highly recommended you lead traffic to your articles and provide leading questions and answers via comments to increase your traffic and recognition.  Leaving comments is a good way to begin testing your writing style and chiming in on a topic that are important to you and your audience.   Share your fitness, health, lifestyle, pain management, recreational activities, illness and disease experiences, ideals, concepts, tips and recommendations if an approved topic inspires you.

Guarantee – We cannot guarantee traffic generation back to your site.  But what we can guarantee is exposure and an opportunity to be an approved “Author,” which may increase your exposure.  See Contributor/Author privilege below.

Non-Paid Submissions – This is a non-paid opportunity.  We’re simply providing a fitness, health and healthy lifestyle writer’s platform based on our Principle Fit Healthy Lifestyle Philosophy [scroll to bottom of page].  Then see our Mission Statement and Company Values.  Feel free to link to your articles within personal emails, blog or social media site [see privileges below].  The more the merrier we always say.

Contributor and Author Privileges– We only approve contributor writers until a writer establishes themselves within our policies.  To become an “Approved Author” with extended privileges first requires a working relationship as a “Contributor” guest writer were context is moderated before approved then published.  However when you achieve “Approved Author” status we allow more links in your resource box to include:  FaceBook page, Twitter feed account, email address, etc… and up to 3 social and 2 home site web links [blog, or web page].  Legitimate in this case refers to reputable sites where those values don’t compromise ours.  MirrorAthlete Inc., will make the finale decision to allow or not allow questionable links.

Once we approve your 1st 3 article submissions, we may provide higher administrative “author” privileges.  Including a change of policies to expand upon those privileges.  We do believe in democracy and opportunity to grow with our contributor/authors.

You can then publish your own work.  However self-publication will be monitored to ensure author/writer policies are in compliance.   We do not restrict you from posting your content at other sites [However writers must ask permission to use the MirrorAthlete registered trade mark, quotes, context, other articles, excerpts, etc., if posting at other sites.  We may or may not authorize this request and is grounds for dismissal without our approval].

MirrorAthlete® Reserves the Right to Moderate Articles before Publishing– MirrorAthlete, Inc., reserves the right to moderate Contributor/Author submissions, to edit, remove articles and comments regardless of administrative rights granted, or reduce privileges to include termination and removal from site access.  If the article is not of quality, and does not follow our mission statement and writer/publisher polices, philosophy, or values, etc., we reserve the right to remove, or not post or publish any article for whatever reason.  And without explanation to those that have seriously violated our writing, distribution and publishing policies.

We also reserve the right to allow additional links, photos and videos within a published article if we feel the links add value to the reading experience.   Although we have not allowed any guest writers these extended privilege at this point, it has more to do with a continued working relationship and trust.  Once an “Approved Author” status is achieved, then internal article content may be authorized non-product links [up to 3].

Regardless of set policies MirrorAthlete Inc., reserves the right to change, revise and set new Approved Contributor/Author policies at any time.
