Frequently Asked Questions:
How often am I required to publish content?
We will never set any restrictions or force you to publish X titles within a certain timeframe. We accept one-off articles from guest writers as much as more regular content and submissions. We wish to build long-term relationships that last and benefit both of us.
How long should the articles be? Do you got a specific limit of the number of words?
The short answer is no. The length of the article depends on the topic and how many words needed to get your views out. The normal length of insightful content ranges anywhere from 450 to 2500 words, sometimes even longer! The longer doesn’t always mean better, but in order to make the article well-researched and packed with insightful tips, we expect more than 300 words. We want you to really dive into the topic, rather than scratch the surface.
Will you edit my articles and/or titles?
Yes, but it depends.
- We reserve the right to edit titles and the introduction to increase the reach of your articles. We will do the best to preserve your voice but also make the article more compelling. We might even modify the structuring of the article if deemed necessary and add relevant sub-headings if we find it beneficial.
- We’ll include links to related articles whether internal or external that enhance your credibility and serve a purpose. If you’re already done it? Great! Similarly, we will remove any inappropriate links included that’s not related to the topic or we consider ‘spammy’.
- We will also edit the layout of the article and correct spelling errors or improve sentences to enhance clarity and make your most valuable sentences comes to attention.
Passion4FM will be in touch with the individual writer in circumstances anything is edited or removed.
I don’t have the necessary experience in creating ‘Featured Images’ or ‘Thumbnails’?
No issue! While we particularly encourage all our Contributors to create their own thumbnails and features images, we will help you out if required.
We also reserve the right to modify thumbnails to better fit the existing Passion4FM branding with its colour choice and thumbnail template. We will provide you with the necessary Passion4FM assets and thumbnail template once accepted as a Contributor or Partner.
Am I allowed to publish posts both on Passion4FM and on my personal blog?
You are allowed to write a piece on Passion4FM which is based on similar topics as from your blog post and link the article on Passion4FM to it, but you are NOT allowed to publish identical content on both places.
Doing so will harm your blog more than it benefits you, as it will come under duplicate content issues which might see your blog deranked on Google.
Can I poach you my ideas?
Of course! But it’s even better if you write a draft and send it to us!
Our wish is that titles and content are related to the topics depicted above. Our main menu will show you our primary areas and focal points, but PASSION4FM aims to be ‘Everything Football Manager’!
What happens after the content has been published?
Once published we encourage you to increase the exposure of the article by sharing it on your individual social media accounts e.g Twitter, Reddit and Facebook groups/pages. We hope you’ll monitor comments for any follow-up questions and/or feedback.
We will also promote the article on our social networks.

Other Opportunities to Contribute
Passion4FM strives to increase the excitement and engagement within the FM Community. As a rather young Football Manager content creator, who aims to cover everything Football Manager, we will let ‘everyone’ contribute to the website – also non-related to writing articles.
At the moment we are looking for personnel who can enhance the depth of Passion4FM in these areas;
- We are especially keen to connect with Football Manager database makers who makes the game even more fun to play. It could be databases which unlocks new leagues or taking part of existing projects such as the NextGen Talents Database or creating Experiments and Challenges. Required: Basic Knowledge of the FM Editor
Youtube Account Manager
- Due to little time and experience in Youtube, the Passion4FM Youtube channel has been inactive for many years. This is something we wish to make a change at as we think it has massive potential. We are currently looking at one (or more) Youtubers who can run the channel or upload Youtube videos at least once a month together with some of our current Partners.
- We wish for the future to get our own Passion4FM Podcast talking about everything related to Football Manager and its Community. We are looking for one to two persons who can run the Passion4FM Podcast and be our voice on the Podcast scene.
