Just pals on a couch who write about health, wealth, and wisdom (and everything in-between)

What is Yard Couch?

Yard Couch is a publication for those seeking long-term success. We have one goal: Share stories that enrich the lives of our readers.

We’ve boiled it down to three salient topics: Health, Wealth, and Wisdom. That could mean writing about the future of cryptocurrency or your favorite philosopher. Prudence is the name of the game.

Our aim at Yard Couch is to provide an invaluable publication on Medium. Take a look at our website to learn more:

Stories can be any length, but they have to be cleanly formatted and valuable for our readers

The best way to make it big on Medium is to share what you’re an expert at. Write about what you love. Don’t get bogged down in trying to emulate something that you’re not. Be you, and let it show in your prose.

Popular tags: Investing, Health, Money, Life, and Writing, success, and productivity.

How Should I Format?

The articles we publish here are clear, concise, and helpful. Valuable information is only useful if the reader can easily identify the key takeaways in the article.

Try not to use too many images to distract readers from the content. Keep your articles clean and not so flashy that it looks trashy.

Remember, many readers prefer to skim, so try to get to the point without so much window dressing. Shakespeare once said, “Brevity is the soul of Wit.”

Mini-Guidelines:

  • Cover photo that gives credit to the artist
  • Clear & concise Title
  • Subtitles are up to you!
  • Utilize headers, subheaders, bullet points, and bold words
