Guest Author Guidelines

Authentic voice –  If you aren’t engaged with your content, how can you expect to engage readers?

Topic – Articles that are on topic deal with business, social media, learning, leading, and quality of life.

Links –  I do allow them but them must be relevant to the content. Please try to limit yourself to 2 backlinks and, ideally, one of those should be in your bio.

Advertising – I am not looking to advertise or promote your product. Guest articles should be informative and not meant to promote any product or service.

Appropriate length – “How long should my article be?” Most articles run from 800 to 1,200 words. Your article should be a minimum of 500 words, and as long as it takes to deliver your message.

Formatting

  • The easiest articles for us arrive already formatted for WordPress in HTML.
  • Word files can be translated by WordPress, but there’s always code to clean up afterwards.
  • Headlines on this blog use only the H3 tag
  • Please provide the full URL of anything you want to link to.

Grammar and Spelling – Please make sure your post has been properly checked for spelling and grammar. If your post needs editing, I will send it back.

Break it up – It’s more interesting to read articles that are punctuated by lists, bullets, block quotes and subheads.

Credit – If you want credit, include a short bio at the end.
Process – If you submit, I will review, post and send back a link. If the content is not well-written and/or not relevant, I will politely pass.
