I am asked from time to time if I allow others to submit posts to my blog that will link back to their own. The answer to this question is a resounding YES! I live for collaboration (and double Americanos with extra cream) and love to create an environment where individuals in similar niches can support one another for mutual growth. I love, love, love my guest bloggers (and repeat guest bloggers). In fact, this year, I will be specifically focused on increasing my guest posts to twice a week, usually every Monday and Wednesday.
Guest blogging is a fantastic way to build your own influence and platform, get your creativity flowing and build relationships. Don’t be shy, it’s not rocket science and you don’t have to be Hemmingway. Check the guidelines below (adapted from Daniel Scocco’s at DailyBlogTips, then come on over and fill out my short Guest Blogger Form and you’re on your way.
Types of Content:
Anything useful to my readers and target audience. Including but not limited to the following topics:
- Giftedness/Highly Sensitive Persons
- Personal Development
- Social Media/Online Marketing
***Please note: Your post cannot be an advertisement for your product or the equivalent of a sponsored post. (However you can contact me directly if you would like discuss.)
- Your post must be original and not previously published either on the Web or in print.
- You agree not to publish it anywhere else, including your own blog or Web site. You may, however, post a brief “tease” or summary on your site that links to the post.
- You may provide up to three byline (author) links: one for your blog or Web site, one for your bio or About page, and one to your username at the social media platform of your choice (Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Pinterest, etc.) (optional).
- Your post should be at least 400 words long and no more than 750 words.
- You should also read:
These posts will help both you and me out in providing the best content.
- Use headings (H2 or H4) for titles, bullet points for lists, quote blocks, columns, etc. throughout the content- this ensures readability. (think whitespace)
- You may include one image (besides your headshot) to be used within the post itself. The image must be licensed for use under Creative Commons.
- I reserve the right to edit your post for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. If I make any significant changes to the content I will send it back to you for your approval before publishing.
- When published, the post may include an introduction or conclusion that I’ve added in order to speak directly to my audience and introduce your post.
Writing can be a lot of work. I totally get it, however, I cannot guarantee that I will publish every post you submit to me. I am responsible to provide content that adds value to my readers and will only publish content that does so. In addition, I cannot provide feedback to you that would help you to improve your post (I simply just don’t have the time to spare).
The Nitty Gritty (Submission Guidelines):
If you’ve read the above and you have a post that’s ready, then head on over to my Guest Blogger Form and fill it out. I will expect your post to be ready for submission when I respond (within a week). Ready? Let’s go:
