Tips to get Featured

Include Pictures

Include high quality pictures in your article.  You can always use Wikipedia (creative common images) and or Morguefile to get royalty free pictures, just make sure you properly credit them.  Without pictures in your article, the chances of getting featured are significantly lower.

Citations

While citations are not required, we will lean more towards articles with citations where applicable.  This improves article credibility

Attractive Formatting

When appropriate use headings, and break your article up into digestible chunks.  If you are writing a top list, include matching widths to make everything look uniform. 

Add Maps

Maps are our latest article element and are a great way to illustrate where certain landmarks can be located and are especially beneficial when describing locations.

Entertaining/Resourceful

Your article should provide value to the end user. At the end of the day, try to make the article entertaining to read while being as resourceful as possible
