  2. All articles are subject to editing. We may change the title, and add or edit subheadings, include internal and/or external links, or edit the writing for grammar, style, or other issues. We also add one or more images to all articles.

  3. Subject matter must be relevant to our audience. Relevant topics include personal essays about your experiences with simple living, intentional living, sustainable living, and minimalism.
