Blog Posts

 

How do I submit a Blog post and what is needed to post it?

DDD publishes two monthly blog posts that are strategically planned, written and edited in advance. If you have an idea, event and/or promotion you would like to submit for blog post consideration, please send all information (details, instructions, timing and images) to features@dallasdesigndistrict.com.

If you would like to be featured in one of our upcoming monthly interview spotlights, please specify this request and send to features@dallasdesigndistrict.com.

ALL BLOG POST REQUESTS MUST HAVE YOUR CONTENT AND ANY AND ALL RELATED PHOTOS TOGETHER AT THE SAME TIME WHEN SUBMITTING YOUR POST.  Partially-submitted posts will not be considered for submission.

Since all blog posts are pre-arranged, we ask that you submit all blog post requests at least 30 to 60 days prior to the date you would like the post published. While we'll do out best to accommodate requests, there is a calendar in place so we can't guarantee a blog post will be produced for every idea submitted.

What are the dimensions for the Blog images?

  • Please send photos no larger than 1MB in size
  • Our team will format the images to fit the blog posts.

How soon can I get an post published on Facebook or Instagram after I submit it?

Please submit all post requests no fewer than 5 business days in advance of when you would like the post to appear. Posts will be published to a select DDD social channel based on the information provided. While we'll do out best to accommodate everyone, there is a running calendar in place and we cannot guarantee a post for every event/idea submitted.

Newsletter Information

When are the newsletters distributed?

Newsletters are distributed the 2nd Thursday of every month.

How do I list my event on the Newsletter?

All events that are shown on the Events calendar which are submitted by design district businesses will be automatically populated into our monthly digital newsletter. Your events must be submitted by the second Monday of the month to be included. We'll fill up to ten (10) events per newsletter. 

Will my event that I submitted through social media appear on the newsletter? 

We only pull events from the events section on the website. We have two different content calendars that push different information so please be sure to log into your profile to post your events. 

Can I list my event even if I’m not a registered business?

For any special consideration to "non" Design District boundary businesses, please email your artwork and description to pam@dallasdesigndistrict.com. Newsletters are distributed around the 10th of every month. If you want your event to be included in our newsletter, then we must have your information and artwork no later than 4 weeks prior to the monthly newsletter launch date. For example, if you want your event to be included in the June newsletter which will be distributed on June 10th, then you will need to submit your artwork and request details no later than May 10th (4 weeks prior to the newsletter distribution date).
