I LOVE having guest posters. It’s really fun to read different perspectives on things.
Here are a few guidelines for guest posting:
-500-1000 words is usually ideal (though not a requirement, just a suggestion).
-Posts should include a 1-2 sentence intro, the post, and a short author bio. If you are writing a post anonymously you are welcome to state that, and only supply whatever information you are comfortable sharing. Here is an example of the set up.
-If you would like back links to your blog or an organization you support, they should be in your author bio or intro, not in your post.
-Try to include 2-3 pictures that you have the rights to use. Ideally one would be an author pic. If you would like to post anonymously an abstract picture works. If no pictures are provided I may use one of my own.
-The piece must be an original piece which has not been published on any other blog or website, and will not be published on any other blog or website in the future. You are welcome to write a post on your own blog leading to your guest post such as this one. You just can’t copy and paste the entire thing, or submit the same post to several different blogs. It’s called “duplicate content” and it’s a blogging no-no.
-You may write about any unique aspect or journey in your life that you feel others will benefit from reading about. Guest posts can be anything from parenting a toddler to traveling to the moon. There are no parameters on whats interesting, and guest posts do not have to be adoption related (though those are certainly great too).
I can’t wait to read what you’ve written! Email your post to nobohnsaboutit at gmail dot com.
