Writing a Post for UnofficialSF
Your content should focus on some new capability, integration or extension. Tutorials are welcome but should be for novel technology (pilots and beta features are a great candidate) or for a novel integration or extension. We’re not trying to compete with the ecosystem to do general education.
Make sure that your focus is on Flow or one of the other areas covered by unofficialsf.com, like External Services.
Provide a clear use case up front.
Generally, the more visuals the better. A screencast is not required but is highly desirable. Failing that, an animated gif is an excellent idea. If you don’t have a handy host for a screencast, we’re happy to host your mp4 file.

You should write the post in Google Doc as it transfers perfectly into our WordPress environment.
Try and make your title catchy and searchable.
