Thank You

Thank you for submitting your writing to Handshake 2.0.  If you’ve received this link, it’s because we’re very interested in working with you and we want to share more information with you about what we do and how we do it.


Handshake 2.0 is a business blog read by individuals in business.  Unlike the writing in a personal blog that can take its time to discover its insights, a business blog post must get to the guts of things immediately.


Readers of business blog posts abandon after 300 words, if not sooner.


Handshake 2.0 considers business blog posts a new literary genre, as exacting and unforgiving as any other formal writing, from an essay built on a three-point thesis statement, to a fourteen-line sonnet.  Writing a business blog post requires the ability to synthesize a vast amount of material in a concise, artful way.


A business blog post requires a writer to get in, share a profound truth, and get out, again, almost immediately.


We want your piece to be read and to bring value to you as a writer, to your subject, and to Handshake 2.0.


If you love the piece you’ve written, please edit it to fewer than 300 words.


Visitors to Handshake 2.0 are viewers.  They need to see as well as read content.


Please resubmit your piece with an original image attached – a photograph, a graphic, a PowerPoint slide – anything you have created (or that a contact of yours has created for you for online credit) that has never been on a blog before – that symbolizes, explains, or expands your content.


Then we’ll consider it for Handshake 2.0.


If you don’t love the piece, consider it for another venue and try again.


We hope you’re willing to work with us on this.  If you’re not, we understand.  Online content creation is very challenging work. 


We are passionate about our content.
