GUEST POSTING GUIDELINES

Please read all of this page to ensure you have a complete understanding of the process and conditions of being a guest poster.

Checking the acknowledgement box at the bottom is the ONLY way to submit your ideas for consideration.

With the volume of requests, I’m receiving you should expect a few days delay in responding to your submission.

A guest post will be edited and formatted by me and I may add to the content or alter it to fit the style and format of my blog; it will be a collaboration.

My blog represents me and thus all guest posts need to reflect my style and I reserve the right to edit and format them accordingly.

I will always link to your main website and/or your social channels. However, I reserve the right to insert my affiliate links or exchange any other links in the post.

POST REQUIREMENTS (for guest posting)

  1. They need to fit one of my categories: Teaching Tips, Teacher Health and Well-being, Extra Income for Teachers or Deals and Reviews for Teachers.
  2. The post needs to be a minimum of about 1000 words.
  3. The post needs to be original content – not previously posted on any website.
  4. You cannot also publish the post on your site (linking to it is fine and sharing socially is fine, but we’d both get in trouble with Google for having the same post on 2 different websites).
  5. Great content – While you would be credited as the writer of the post and I would include a bio and link to your site and/or social pages, I would not want your guest post to be sales-y or pushing your affiliate links. The post’s primary goal should be to help my viewers.
  6. Your bio should be 200 words max and can include a headshot or logo pic of your brand.
  7. I reserve the right to edit the post as I see fit and format it to my liking (including inserting my affiliate links on guest posts if I think they naturally work with the post).
  8. If you send images, make sure they are royalty free or your own – Images from websites like Pexels.com or Pixabay.com can be used commercially without attribution (credit).  Please make sure the images you send are able to be used without payment or copyright infringement. That being said I have no issue with finding images and I reserve the right to substitute images if I think it helps the post. I also frequently insert YouTube videos where it makes sense or possibly embed Twitter posts that are relevant.
  9. If you post cites a fact or statistic, make sure you link to the original study (not just another blog post).
  10. If you want to link to other blog posts just make sure they aren’t competing for the same keyword phrase (ie: the same subject matter). I reserve the right to remove or swap all links in a guest post.
  11. Until I see your written post I cannot guarantee I will use it
  12. The post should be submitted in a word document or a Google Docs file.
  13. I would want you to share the post at least once on all social channels you use
  14. Share me now – It doesn’t hurt to show me you’re serious by sharing some of my existing posts now on your social channels and following me on all my social channels.
  15. Repeat posts – If the post does well, I’m happy to accept future posts under the same conditions.
  16. My Ownership - Once you submit a written post to me for guest posting that post is now mine to edit, format and publish as I see fit. I will always credit you as the author of the post unless you wish that credit is removed. Once I have invested time in communicating, editing and formatting the post, I reserve the right to publish it whether or not you are happy with the final result (but it's always my goal to have both of us be extremely pleased).
I know this is a lot of information, but it’s helpful if you have a clear understanding of what I’m looking. It also helps prevent confusion or frustration as we get further into the process.
I agree to all the above conditions. *
