Submitting an article is easy! Read the EMN publishing guidelines below, and use your Pro Member dashboard to upload content directly to the site for approval. If you’re not a Pro Member, email your post and image link to:

Articles are published on the website and distributed throughout the month via social media. Some articles may be held for future publication in theme-specific conversations.


It is recommended that posts are in the 400-600 word range. Posts that announce events or vendors  may be less and still be published.

Topics / Categories

General Topics are:
Estate (property, grounds, furnishings, housekeeping, technology, security, staff, services…)

Estate Management (the profession of managing all aspects of an estate and the resources and education needed)

Behind the Scenes (what it’s like to be in the private service industry and the EM life)

Events (networking events, classes, workshops, live podcasts…)

Little Black Book (resources, tools, vendors, classes…)


Images are recommended to add perspective and personality. EMN may or may not use the images submitted. We may find an imaged more appropriate for the aesthetic of the website and reserves the right to publish the article with a photo of the Publisher’s choice.


Authors may suggest links to relevant, useful further reading. Affiliate links, ad links or trackbacks to Author content on other pages will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Social media links may be placed in the Author profile.
