Great pitches come from knowing the publication inside and out (11/12)

Don’t pitch blindly because you think a post might be a fit. Seek out the types of publications that publish articles on topics of interest to you and spend a few hours perusing the content to learn about story types, voice, tone and so on. 

Also, pay careful attention to the site’s publication guidelines. Then, when you submit your pitch or fully drafted article (depending on guidelines), make sure you specifically mention why you think it’s a great match for that publication.
