Do I need to be a college grad to write stories for Trending Views?
No. I don't care if you went to college, trade school, or dropped out when you were 11-years-old. The only thing that matters is that you have a desire to tell a story, can run spell check, and you write with facts and have a great understanding of the topic you're writing about.
For example, if you know a lot about a particular topic, then you should write about it. It's easy and you're intelligent in that field. That always makes your writing better and readers will appreciate you more.

What can I do on Trending Views?
Users can submit articles/blog posts, pictures, and videos and earn points in our system to be a top user. The points system is just for fun. It is not connected to the earning system.
Articles: please provide a picture, quote (optional), the facts, and a link to the original source. Articles should be original content written for us and not used anywhere else. They also cannot be used on any other website after they are posted here. If you're writing about a factual news story, then always include the facts and details. Being real news is real important.
Pictures: gallery submissions should be 15 pictures or more. If you submit just one picture, then we most likely will not approve it. It's a better experience for readers to see a bunch of pictures at once, that way they enjoy their time on the site.
Videos: choose fun, informative, inspiring, crazy, omg, or interesting videos that people will enjoy and share. We also have a lot of crime videos because our audience enjoys watching reality documented. We are moving away from violent videos. They're just not that great for the user experience and we want to become a hub of intelligent people enjoying great writing and videos. There's other websites for the negative content. The non-violent content also attracts more advertisers, which is good for our writers in the contributor program.
There's a writers guideline at this link. This is not mandatory to follow, but if you take note of the tips, then you're most likely to be published!
