We are often asked to consider posting an article from someone else on our blog. Until this point, we have always said “no.” However, we give it a try.
So, yes, we will accept guest posts. Currently, we do not plan to publish more than two posts per week. These will likely appear on Tuesday and Friday.
Your post must be on one of six topics:
- Workshop Review
- Product Review
- Social Media
Your post cannot be an advertisement for your product or the equivalent of a sponsored post. (However, we will do an advertising category for that if you are interested shortly)
- 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 links: one for your blog or Web site, one for your bio or About page, and one for your Instagram username (optional);
- Your post should be at least 500 words long and no more than 800 words.
If your post meets the above guidelines:
- Please email it to us for consideration. Due to the volume of submissions, it usually takes us 1–2 weeks to respond.
- Please include a one to two-sentence byline that includes what you do, along with your blog address and your Instagram and/or Facebook address.
- Please confirm that you are willing to engage with our readers in the comments about your post. This is hugely important and a non-negotiable. Our readers have come to expect this.
- Please include the post in the body of the e-mail. DO NOT include it as an attachment. Also, please do not include HTML coding.
If we reject your post, you are obviously free to do whatever you want with it, including publishing it elsewhere. Also, please put your post in the body of the email rather than as an attachment.
We understand the work that it takes to write a blog post. However, the fact that you have written a post and submitted it to us does not obligate us to publish it. The only guest posts we will publish are those that in our sole judgment add value to our readers. Furthermore, if we do not approve your guest post, we will not explain why we did not approve it or provide any detail. Frankly, that would take more time than we can afford.
