Guest Author Invitation
If you are interested in posting a guest article, we will be glad to work with you and publish your creation for our members. However, here are a few guidelines for an article to be published.
Your post must fall into one of these categories:
- Personal Growth
- Business Development
Your post cannot be an advertisement for your product or the equivalent of a sponsored post. It must be a post that is intended to add value to readers. The post must indicate that you personally have written this post and you know what you are talking about.
Your post must be original and not previously published either on the Web or in print. Your personal experience on the topic is what makes your blog post interesting to a reader. Therefore, it must not be in textbook style. It must indicate your personal involvement with the subject just like any other blog post on this website published.
You agree not to publish it anywhere else, including your own blog or website. 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 website, one for your bio or profile, and one for your Twitter or Facebook or LinkedIn account (optional). Your links will be published within the body of the post as a highlighted note for readers to know that it is a guest post by you.
Your Post Must Have At Least 700 words: Your post should be at least 700 words long. If your post has quality content that my readers may benefit from, we welcome posts that are even larger than 1000 words as long as the quality of the post is maintained.
We will likely copy-edit your post for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. If we make substantive changes (unlikely), we will email the post back to you for your approval before posting.
RESPONDING TO COMMENTS
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.
If your post meets the above guidelines, please go ahead and send an eMail at email@example.com and attach your blog post in a word document (or a text file) so we can review your post and provide you our feedback.
Once your content is finalized, we will then create an account for you as a guest author and you will get an email with your login details for this website. Then, you are required to populate your social media profiles for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and your Author Bio for your account. Make sure you are happy with the details about your author profile.
The next step is to get your published. When your profile information is ready from your end, just let us know and we will work with you to finalize a publishing date to get your guest post published and then schedule it as agreed.
If you have any questions about writing a post for the website, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
