Guest Blogging Guidelines

I have decided to start accepting random pitches for guest posts on this site. After almost a year of blogging once or twice (and sometimes thrice) per week, I continue to post content but want to give others the opportunity to showcase their content on the site as well.

Note: I am not currently accepting pitches for guest posts.

The below is for informational purposes only.


Since I know the way many bloggers think, I am going to set down a few guidelines that I ask you to adhere to. Failure to adhere to these will result in me rejecting your post. Also, I reserve the right to not publish a post if I do not think that the quality is up to par with the other articles on this site.

Content

Your post MUST be around the topics of:

  • SEO
  • Social Media
  • Online Marketing
  • WordPress tips and tricks
  • Google Analytics
  • Linkbuilding

Obviously, if your pitch or post is really just an advertisement for your own blog or product, I will reject it. You are welcome, however, to include links back to your site or other sites provided that they add value to the article. I rarely take out links, but reserve the right to do so.

Guidelines

  • Your post must be original content, not published elsewhere on the Internet;
  • You must not publish the content elsewhere on the Internet once it is published on my site.
  • Link to your Google+ profile in the format of <a href=”https://plus.google.com/(number)?rel=”author”>Google+</a>

You may notice that I do not require an image with the post. This is because I think that having an image for the sake of having an image is a waste of time because it does not make the post look any more professional. I do, however, ask that if you are talking about data from Analytics or other sources that you provide a screenshot. As you can tell from my posts, I love data screenshots!

Editing

I will edit your post for grammatical errors and facts. I will rarely make many changes, but if I do I will send the complete text of the post to you before it is published. I will also send you a full screenshot of the post on my site before it is published for your final review.

Submitting

Once you have an idea and are interested, please contact me at dohertyjf@gmail.com. Once I have approved of your topic, then take your time to write and make it awesome. Once I receive the full post, I will communicate with you about when it will publish!

I’m excited about seeing what people come up with!
