Thank you for your interest in writing a blog post for No Stomach For Cancer. The Blog is a great place to share knowledge and experience, and to help others continue to learn about matters of importance once touched by stomach cancer. There are many topics to write about, from general health and well being, nutrition, and post gastrectomy concerns to a great awareness activity or event, to a personal experience that changed your life, to something humorous.

Although blog posts will vary, strong blog posts generally include the following:
- 500-800 words (suggested length)
- A title that gives the reader some insight about the blog’s topic
- Your personal connection to stomach cancer (are you a patient, survivor, family member, caregiver, medical professional, etc.)
- Something that will inform, inspire, or raise awareness about topics related to stomach cancer
- Paragraphs between 5-6 sentences long
- A short biographical paragraph about you written in the third person
- A photograph to accompany your blog post. Although this is optional, people love to see pictures of either the blogger or about someone related to the blog post. Be sure to include a caption that explains something about the picture (who it is, its significance, etc.)
Remember, you are writing to share your experience. Please do not provide medical advice. People with any medical questions or concerns should always consult their physician.
