To help you out with some ideas, the lists that our readers love the most (and the ones we will most likely pay for) are lists that are offbeat and novel—lists that are looking at something normal in an unexpected way (ways college makes you dumb, for example), unsolved mysteries, hidden knowledge (things most people don’t know), misconceptions, and just really astonishing general knowledge about anything—science, for example. After approving your article, it will be great to share it on Facebook/Twitter.


You will earn revenue for every article that is published.


We take plagiarism very seriously at Smashoid. We use Plagiarisma to ensure all articles are original.

If you have blatantly plagiarized your article from another writer, we will find out. As consequence you will automatically be removed from our database, with your name blacklisted in our list of authors.

If you wish to cite another source to better explain your viewpoint, please properly credit them in the article by linking to the original source.


Contact Smashoid for permission

Authors may publish an excerpt of their article, along with a link to the full version, on their personal site providing they have received permission first. Request this permission by emailing your editor and explaining where (with a link) the excerpt will be published.

We do not permit non-authors to republish articles elsewhere, regardless of the amount of material they plan to republish.
