My first thought was, “Wow, she’s made the big time.” That was quickly followed by, “If she can do, then so can I.”

It’s true. You can see your byline in Huffington Post. All it takes is creating compelling, original content that fits within the publication’s guidelines. Of course, that’s easier said than done.

Here are seven tips for seeing your byline in Huffington Post:

1. Use the pitch form. Huffington Post’s pitch form is an innocuous looking Google Form. You may wonder if this is really how you pitch the publication.

Though there are other ways to get into Huffington Post, rest assured that this form really is one of them. Like with all busy publications, you’ll hear back if they’re interested. If you don’t, you know the drill. Live on to pitch, pitch again.

2. Pitch an editor. It’s always better to go straight to the source. Huffington Post handily lists their editors here.

The editors are charged with cultivating the best content out there, so reach out to one via Twitter or email if you think you have a story they can’t resist.
