Writing Prompts–Find Your Inspiration Here!
Here’s where you will find (literally) thousands of ideas for articles you could write *better*. It’s a delightful mixture of media fluff and well-documented nutrition news topics that should be rewritten from a dietitian’s perspective.
First, Why Write?
Attract Nutrition Clients or Increase Sales
What better way to attract clients than to write a great niche article to be published on the NutriScape.NET consumer site. NutriScape can’t offer financial compensation, but writing on your topic of expertise and passion will have the effect of positioning you as an expert and allowing you to market your paid products and services.
For example, your author biography might link to your own independent website, your telehealth scheduling page on NutriScape’s telenutrition site, or help you generate passive income from your online course, downloadable e-book, or handouts and forms.
NutriScape Allows You To Reach Your Nutrition Niche
Is your voice being drowned out in the ocean of other small blogs on the topic? When it comes to getting your articles found on google, the size of the website matters along with SEO (the term for details like tagging, linking, categorizing, using keywords, outline structure for headings, and the like). Bottom line–on NutriScape, your article Will.Get.Read.
A Supportive Writing Community
Ever spend forever writing an article only to read it later and realize a couple of lines in it could be misconstrued? Or worse, that there is an error you hadn’t realized was there? Now, you don’t have to write it alone! NutriScape.NET offers a peer-review process whereby dietitians are able to offer supportive feedback to help you optimize your article’s message.
A Wide Readership
As NutriScape grows, it is sure to become an important and widely shared resource for our profession of nearly 90,000 registered dietitians as well as their patients and clients. These are not casual readers, but the exact people your knowledge can make the difference for–isn’t that why we all became dietitians?
Academic and Career Development
Students, dietetic interns, and job seekers have unlimited publishing opportunities. Add a line to your resume or talk to your professor about receiving academic credit for your published work.
Follow Your Passion While You Save Time and Promote Your Work
Spending all your time on email and social media repeating the same messages again and again? When your article is published on NutriScape, you can link to it again and again. Link to it from Facebook or email the link to your clients. You’ll be able to write what you’re passionate about–maybe it will turn into something more–a book, a course, a job offer?
Peer-Review Process By Dietitian Colleagues Nationwide
At The NutriScape Project, we have thought long and hard about how to strike the right balance so that we have a site every dietitian will be proud of. Nutrition topics are often controversial. There is also the need to have an open and collaborative process to take care of the vast amounts of fact-checking that must take place for articles.
So, here’s the plan: when an article is accepted, we immediately publish it on our sites based on the NutriScape Editorial Staff’s review. At the same time, we publish new articles on the peer-review site where colleagues can share their thoughts. All comments are moderated so that we can assure a positive community experience.
Republish Your Previous Works
NutriScape needs content! If you have articles ready to go that match our Voice & Tone guidelines, they can be submitted easily via e-mail for publication on the site. When content is already published on your site, you may be able to bring additional attention to your specialty blog by allowing The NutriScape Project to republish your article with a link to your site. And, it will even help your SEO when NutriScape creates a backlink to your site and places a canonical reference to your original article.
No matter what, you will always own the content you’ve published through The NutriScape Project. That means that you can republish your article on other platforms if you’d like, or just link to the article on NutriScape.NET.
