Separation From The Topics

I am only interested in covering pet related topics listed above at this time. A person may be an expert in one generalized area listed above (e.g. vet assistant, professional trainer, breeder, etc) or be able to research and write content on any or all of the topics above.

Original Content & Licensing

I’m not looking for ezine articles or rehashes of articles that have been published on the ‘net previously. I am looking for original content writers and all articles will be checked for authenticity. I am not looking for PLR content or ghost writers. If you are not the creator of content and decide to quote another blogger or writer’s words, proper citation must be given (e.g. provide a link to the original source). You might want to read this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_sources ..

Generally, only use a portion or quote of the original article and do not replicate the entire article – for photos and videos, the same rules apply. If you aren’t the creator then proper citation must be provided and unless you have linked the video from YouTube or the like, you will need permission from the owner of the video or picture. Violation of this point will cause you to be either reprimanded or terminated .. and possibly you might be “put to the hounds” and flogged by pets around the world and the general blogging community if you are caught. For remuneration purposes, “word count” may be discounted and limited up to 50 words for quoted information for the entire article.

Blogger provides PetLvr.com and HART-Empire Network exclusive 1-year ONLINE publishing rights, and indefinite non-exclusive right thereafter. You will not repost this content onto any other blog you may own or write, and as content is supposed to be original, there should be no reproduction of content originally posted on any other blog you may own or write for. You are free to use the content OFFLINE in any manner you’d like. After the exclusive 1-year is up, you may republish any of the content as you’d like (in other blogs you may own or write for, eBooks, etc). PetLvr.com or the HART-Empire Network may republish in whole or in part at any time within the network to help promote the network or the individual PetLvr blog in question.

Author and Linkage

All articles written by the blogger will appear as articles written by the blogger, if published on the Blog. The current and future templates will always display the author associated with every post. Currently, bloggers will submit articles for review for submission. If the article, for some reason, is not published on the PetLvr blog, the blogger may use the article for any other purpose and the draft will deleted from the PetLvr database/dashboard. You will not be able to link to affiliated products or stores of your own from articles in our blog, although linking out is encouraged and may be to sites that link to affiliated products or stores of your own. If your post is under 300 words and designated as a Guest Authored post, you may link out to your website in the post.

Your very own Author “about” page will be created for each paid writer on board, and you may request to add links to your various blogging and writing ventures out on the ‘net.
