- Your post must be original and must have never been published before on the Internet
- You agree to not publish the post anywhere else (i.e., in your own blog or as a guest post in other blogs)
- Your post should be at least 400 words long and no more than 800 words.
- Please format your guest post as an HTML document, so that I can copy and paste it into the WordPress HTML editor.
- Use H2 or H4 tags for sub-headings.
- Make sure to include the author byline at the bottom, with the link to your website already formatted (do not spam keywords there, though).
Here are some tips to help:
- Demonstrate good command of language, grammar, punctuation, clarity, style and tone.
- Run your content through a spell check, and try to catch all the typos.
- Edit your post well, and rewrite it a few times. It’s a good idea to set your post aside for a day or two and come back to it with fresh eyes.
- Use an outline, and structure your post well. Sub-headers and bullet points or strong impact statements help your content stay on track.
- Have a well-rounded wrap-up. A good conclusion is one of the most neglected areas of guest posts. Please end yours with a good bang that encourages conversation and commentary.
Your Post Should Be Relevant
- Our blog covers topics on self publishing, book reviews, author tips, writing tips and digital publishing ideas. Our audience wants to explore and read relevant post topics on new, different or better ways. No advertisement when writing a guest post.
If your post meets the above guidelines:
- Please email it to me for consideration. Due to the volume of submissions, it usually takes me 2–3 weeks to respond.
- Please include a one to two-sentence byline that includes what you do, along with your blog address and your Twitter and/or Facebook address.
- Please include the size of your readership: number of blog readers, Facebook friends or fans, and Twitter followers.
- Please confirm that you are willing to engage with my readers in the comments about your post. This is hugely important and a non-negotiable. My readers have come to expect this.
Happy Writing! 😉
