1. Ensure you are logged in to Naija Stories. (If you are not sure whether you are logged in, you can make sure by going to and logging in.)

2. Navigate to This will take you to the ‘Add New Post’ page.

3. Enter a descriptive title for your post in the title field. This is the field that has the text ‘Enter title here’. (See Picture 1 below.)

4. Enter the content of your post in the large content field below the title field. (See Picture 1 below.) When entering your content, please pay attention to the submission guidelines; if you do not follow the guidelines, your submission may be delayed or deleted.

5. Select a category for your post from the ‘Categories’ list to the right of the content field. Do not select ‘Uncategorized’.

6. Add descriptive tags to your post in the ‘Tags’ section below the ‘Categories’ list so that people can find your post more easily. In the field in the section, type in the tag you want to add, then click the ‘Add’ button next to it.

7. Click ‘Submit for Review’ if you are ready to submit your post. If you aren’t yet ready, click ‘Save Draft’


Note that as long as your story has not been published, you can still edit it, but by further editing, you may delay its publication.

After submitting your story, you can check if and when your story has been scheduled for publication by going here:

    He jumped off the diving board into the swimming pool, and propelled himself like a fish with the speed of a speeding boat to the other end of the swimming pool and finally like a piece of paper hung himself in a floating manner, swimming is one of the things he knows how to do best and is always ranked first in the list of his hobbies except maybe when asked to to choose between swimming and Mrs yinka his sagged facial lover that is old enough to be his grandmother

    Please how do I upload an avatar to my story?

    1. @lone, to upload a picture that is shown when your story is shown on the front page, use the ‘Set Featured Image’ link that is to the right of the main content field where you post your story.

      (If you are posting on a mobile phone, you will need to scroll down to after to main content field to see this link.)

    Haloo admin, pls a story of mine was published but I don’t know how to add new chapters.

    1. @noble4d, once your story has been published, you cannot edit it directly.

      You can, however, submit new posts (just as you submitted the original story) and title those as additional chapters to the story.

      1. How come the admin didn’t say anything about those who wanted to delete stories? I would like to delete a story. How can I do this?

  6. Hello @ Admin please I want to delete one of post. How do I go about that? please help!!!

    Admin, how can i get my book to be published as E-Book just like the ones i saw in the E-BOOKS link above?

  9. Tobi (@OluwafemiTobi)

    It’s rocket science to post your stories as well as an accompanying picture. I’ll say I’m not happy, after trying for several minutes. Please give me a step by step guide to publishing a story here. Please.

    I’ll be glad if I get a reply.

    1. Hello Tobi,

      Sorry to hear that you are having difficulty submitting your post.

      Can you be specific as to which of the seven steps above you are having problems with? If you provide this information, we should be able to help you.

  10. I have submitted my posts and even made commented for over three days and they have not yet been moderated . Please why the delay ?

    1. Hello Nkemjika,

      You post has now been published.
      It could take up to 7 days for posts to be moderated.
      This is based on the number on the queue, or the time available to moderators who are volunteers.
      Thanks for your understanding.
