Guest Post Requirements
If you’re thinking of an article for this site, the checklist is below. I highly encourage you to use it precisely as a checklist — literally, go through the points and ensure your draft satisfies all of these criteria.
When posts don’t hit these points, I usually have to decline them. At a minimum, I’ll postpone them for several weeks at a time. The blog isn’t my full-time job, so I often push off unready posts for months, if they ever get up at all.
- Be sure to have joined here before submission.
- Submit substantive posts and original content.
- Be specific and get into exact details.
- Give at least 1-3 weeks to schedule.
- Send a few topic ideas along with your draft.
- Include actionable takeaways and recommended next steps.
- Create quality evergreen content.
