Since you are on this page, you probably are looking for the opportunity to guest blog here. I assume that you have looked around and you know that I take my blog seriously. I am committed to adding value to my readers and to you as an author.
If you have some great content that you would like to share with my readers, I have some great news for you. At this time, I am accepting guest posts for publishing on this blog from credible and sincere authors like yourself.
If you are interested in posting a guest article , I will be glad to work with you and publish your creation for my readers. However, here are a few guidelines for an article to be published on my blog.
Your post must fall into one of these categories:
- Personal Growth
- Social Media
- Business Development
Your post cannot be an advertisement for your product or the equivalent of a sponsored post. It must be a post that is intended to add value to readers. The post must indicate that you personally have written this post and you know what you are talking about.
Your post must be original and not previously published either on the Web or in print. Your personal experience on the topic is what makes your blog post interesting to a reader. Therefore, it must not be in textbook style. It must indicate your personal involvement with the subject just like any other blog post on this website published.
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 Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn account (optional). Your links will be published within the body of the post as a highlighted note for readers to know that it is a guest post by you.
You Must Have A Gravatar Image For Yourself: I now require that all guest authors must have their gravatar image. If you don't have a gravatar image for yourself, please take time to set one up for yourself at their website.
You Must Be Active On Social Media: All guest authors must be active on at least two social media sites. If you are writing a guest post, I assume that you are active on Google+ for your authorship? When you approach me for a guest post, please send me the URL for your social media profiles for me to check you out.
Your Post Must Have An Image: Don’t forget to include 1 image matching your guest posts and make sure images size are less than 60 KB. The dimension of your image must be at least 700px wide. If you are sharing someone else's image, please add a credit note for them.
Your Post Must Have At Least 1000 words:Your post should be at least 700 words long. If your post has quality content that my readers may benefit from, I welcome posts that are even larger than 1000 words as long as the quality of the post is maintained.

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.
RESPONDING TO COMMENTS
Please confirm that you are willing to engage with my readers in the comments about your post. This is hugely important and a non-negotiable. My readers have come to expect this.
If your post meets the above guidelines, please go ahead and send me an E-Mail and attach your blog post in a Word document (or a text file) so I can review your post and provide you my feedback.
Once your content is finalized, I will then create an account for you as a guest author and you will get an email with your loging details for this website. Then, you are required to populate your social media profiles for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and your Author Bio for your account. Make sure you are happy with the details about your author profile.
The next step is to get your published. When your profile information is ready from your end, just let me know and I will work with you to finalize a publishing date to get your guest post published and then schedule it as agreed.
