Publishing Network: Editorial Guidelines

Most recent update: June 8, 2015

We're proud of the blogs in the BlogHer Publishing Network, now part of SheKnows Media (SKM), and of their commitment to quality.

All blogs affiliated with SKM’s Publishing Network have signed editorial standards that commit to appropriateness of content, category relevance, blog frequency, and adherence to editorial standards, which read as follows

SKM Publishing Network Editorial Standards

We embrace diversity and expression in all blogs; however SKM declines to include blogs with unacceptable content in the SKM Publishing Network. We define unacceptable content as anything included or linked that:

Is used to abuse, harass, stalk or threaten a person(s).

Is libelous, defamatory, knowingly false or misrepresents another person.

Infringes upon any copyright, trademark, trade secret or patent of any third party. (If you quote or excerpt someone's content, it is your responsibility to provide proper attribution to the original author. For a clear definition of proper attribution and fair use, please see The Electronic Frontier Foundation's Legal Guide for Bloggers.

Violates any obligation of confidentiality.

Violates the privacy, publicity, moral or any other right of any third party.

Contains undisclosed editorial content that has been commissioned and paid for by a third party, and/or contains undisclosed paid advertising links and/or spam. Every opinion expressed must be the true opinion of the author. For a clear definition of proper disclosure, please see The FTC’s Endorsement Guides: What People Are Asking.
