What Quality are We Looking For?

Create Your Moment Blogging values quality content — fresh ideas, unique perspectives, varied voices, smart thinking — and we believe readers do too. Here are the elements our editorial teams consider in evaluating story quality:

  • Does the story meet a high editorial standard? – Is it well-written, easy to follow, free of errors, appropriately sourced, narratively strong, and compelling?
  • Does it add value for the reader? – Does it share new insights or perspectives? Offer an original take on a familiar issue? Does it stir emotions and/or thinking? Provide meaningful advice? Enrich a reader’s understanding of the topic? Does it feel like time well spent?
  • Is it written for the reader? – Is the story written with the reader in mind? Does the story make a connection with the reader or to a larger issue?
  • Is it complete? – Is it a finished, polished piece of work? Considered? Concise? Will a reader walk away satisfied?
  • Is it rigorous? – Are claims supported? Sources cited alongside stated facts? Does the story hold up to scrutiny?
  • Is it honest? – Is the story written in good faith? Is it truthful?
  • Does it offer a good reading experience? – Is it properly formatted for the web/mobile? Does it have a clear and relevant headline that lets the reader know what the story is about? An easily readable story body — paragraphs/spacing/styling/section breaks/quotes?
  • Is it free of typos and errors? 
  • Is the imagery appropriate? Is the imagery relevant and appropriate to the story?

We want readers to feel their time on Create Your Moment Blogging is well spent and are taking a careful look at stories designed to drive views over value. We believe clickbait does a disservice to readers and writers and undermines Create Your Moment Bloggings overall ideology of spreading new ideas, deepening understanding of the world, and supporting nuance, complexity, and vital storytelling.

We’ve compiled a small list of four questions for writers and editors to use to evaluate and identify most clickbait formulas. If any of these questions can be answered with a “yes,” the story is likely clickbait and will not be considered for additional distribution:
– Is the title trying to exploit a reader’s personal worries, insecurities, or emotional state
– Is the title or story image more provocative than the content of the story merits?
– Is the title over-reaching or over-promising with claims or absolutes that are not verifiable
– Is the title withholding important context; misleading the reader; or using cliches, gimmicks, or cheap language?

You must ensure that the reader knows what they are clicking. The heading of the post must be related to the post itself.
