Let me preface what's to come by saying that I don't claim to be an expert on all things BuzzFeed. I've had modest success posting as a Community Contributor here in the last six months — tweeted by Weezer, crowned (temporarily, at least) the King of Cute, linked by National Geographic (for a cat video, no less!) — and the tips outlined below were developed and fine-tuned after a fair bit of trial and error. I'm not going to talk about what types of content plays best on the site, or where you should source it; that's a different convo for a different day. Consider my observations more as more style points that will prime the pump for your posts and make it easier for the Community Editors to endorse them; you're free to apply, or disregard, or repurpose, as you see fit.
