  • The post must be clearly and identifiably related to narcissistic abuse recovery and/or codependency, narcissism, Cluster B personality disorders, and/or other alternative labels for personality disorders and directly related helpful topics.

  • Sponsored posts must be original and may not have been published elsewhere online.  All submissions will be verified for originality using a tool such as Copyscape.com or Plagium.com.
  • It must bring something new to the readers, information or otherwise interesting, and it should be different from any other article posted on QueenBeeing.com, whether written by you or someone else.

  • In some cases, QueenBeeing.com may provide a short introduction or conclusion to your post to provide context or the rationale for what we think our members can get out of it.
