“Please do not tell me when it would be a good idea to publish the article; I already know when I’m going to publish it if I decide to (for instance, you don’t have to tell me that an article about beach safety would be a good idea to publish in the summer… I’m pretty savvy about weather and the timeliness of beach-going). Do not send ANY health-related articles — no diet, no exercise, no vaccinations, nada — as we have a very strict protocol and ONLY use locals for these articles. DO have a sense of humor about parenting. DO read the writers’ guidelines BEFORE you send me anything. DO NOT ask me for the writers’ guidelines, as they are already on the website(s). Do not write me again to ask me if I received your query. I did. I will email you back if I plan to use it. I probably won’t if I don’t. If you quote someone, source it. And, for the love of God, spell things correctly. If your query letter has typos, I’m not even going to read past the first line because you’ll be an editing nightmare.”
