The Business of Mums Guest Blogging Guidelines
We welcome guest bloggers on our site.
If you would like to submit a guest blog, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with at least 2 suggested topics you would like to write about and a link to a blog you have written previously.
Please read the following guidelines before writing or submitting your post.
Length, Format & Images
Please keep your post between 350 and 1500 words
Write your blog in short paragraphs, with sub headings if possible. A wall of text will put reader’s off.
Think about a headline that will create attention and interest and is shareable. Let us know if you would like help with this. We may change your headline as we see fit.
Use bold text to highlight the most important thoughts/takeaways.
Provide at least one hi-res image for your post. Ideally one cover image to go at the top and one in the body. Please make sure you have permission to use the images. There are plenty of free stock photo services on the web.
Make sure your content is unique and doesn’t appear on any other websites. We do not publish anything that has been published elsewhere (we all know how Google feels about duplicate content!)
Make sure your blog reflects the writing style/tone of The Business of Mums blog. We strive to be friendly, supportive, conversational and informative.
We reserve the right to edit and adapt your guest blog content as we see fit.
Make sure your blog post has some key takeaways for the reader. It should provide high quality content and value and advice that readers will learn from (you might like to consider A beginner’s guide to … or Ten top tips on … or 5 steps to …)
You may include up to three resource links, if they fit the context of your topic and enhance the content.
Please make sure you include proper attribution of all data, quotations, and other third-party content referenced in the article.
Avoid being self-promotional in the body of your article and do not include links to an opt in or a special promotion. The point of the blog is to offer great value and helpful content. If readers find your blog useful, they will seek you out (via the contact details in your bio).
Please provide a short, 1-2 sentence author bio, including one link to your own website, plus links to all your social media sites.
All guest bloggers will be allocated a deadline date. Please submit your blog on or before the deadline date.
If you are unable to meet the deadline then please inform us at least a week before the due date.
Be part of our community
If we publish your blog, we will ask you to be active in our community, to help promote your blog and to answer any questions or comments that are posted about it. You may also like to start a discussion in the FB group and on our FB page, to encourage questions and comments. Think of it as a way of being even more engaged with our community.
