Please check out the wiki before posting! Your question might already be answered!

Blogspam type posts are not permitted on this subreddit. You are certainly welcome to post articles from your blog (or others), but please do so in a manner which generates discussion. Please do not simply post your blog and leave it. Create discussion. There needs to be a reason we should want to read your blog. Blogspam which gets downvoted to oblivion is typically removed. Blogspam which gets reported by users typically earns a temporary ban.

Use these tags at the beginning of your titles when posting (if applicable). We don't do anything with them yet, but if we get more readers we'll work it into some sort of icon system:

[HELP] -- Use this tag when asking a specific question about a specific problem you're experiencing, and not a general question.

[REVIEW] - Use this if you are writing a review of a self-published work.

[~~SERVICE~~] - Please visit our affiliated site: DO NOT post your services here. NOTE: We are not responsible for your experience using these services, we do not endorse any posted services and caution you to use them at your own risk!!

[META] - Use this if you are asking a question or making a comment about the subreddit itself.

Self Promotion Rules:

Due to popular demand, self promotion is now limited to specific threads, namely a weekly promotional thread. This includes posts attempting to promote your book-related service.

No [PROMO] posts are allowed

The reasoning behind this is an attempt to clear up the perceived spam from the subreddit and allow our community a chance to catch up on news and help users out.
