Guest Blogging Guidelines
From time to time, I do allow guest blog posts on my blog. For consideration, please review the following guidelines.
Your posts must be on one of these topics:
- Personal talents and strengths
- Personal brand and personal branding
- Business success
- Professional development
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 social media platform of choice.
- Your post should be at least 500 words long and no more than 1,000 words.
Review and editing:
I will likely copyedit your post for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. If I make substantive changes (unlikely), I will email the post back to you for your approval before posting.
I may provide a short introduction or conclusion to your post to provide context or the rationale as to why I think the post is important. I will make sure that my comments are set off from yours stylistically, so that my readers are clear that these are mine and not yours.
I understand the work that it takes to write a blog post. However, the fact that you have written a post and submitted it to me does not obligate me to publish it. The only guest posts I will publish are those that in my sole judgment add value to my readers. If you have an idea for a blog posts, I would prefer that you run your topic/idea by me first so that I may tentatively pre-approve before you spend time writing. Again, writing a blog post does not obligate me to publish it.
If your post meets the above guidelines, please use this form to submit your blog post for consideration.
If you have any questions or want to run a blog post idea by me first, please contact me.
