Hi Lovely People,
This will be a quick, straight-to-the-point type of post.
I have had a sit-down meeting with my team (my team being me, myself and I), on where exactly I
want to see my blog go, in terms of direction and content. One of the things I have resolved and am
keen to share is that I would love to have guest bloggers and/or contributors for the blog.
I love my blog and its growth, especially since I revamped it 3 years ago. Since that revamp, I have had so many ideas floating around of what I want to do with the blog, and what the end-goal is. Now that I have clarity on that, guest bloggers and contributors seem like the best next step to take.
Here’s how I would like it to work:
-As a regular reader (I hope), you know the type of topics I write about on the blog. I do not always
have the luxury that is time to write, edit and post my own content… because, you know, life?
So, I would like to invite any and every one who would like to guest blog or contribute to a
post on the blog.
My usual main topics on the blog are Lifestyle, Beauty and Travel. However, I would really like to break these topics down to give my readers more depth and experience.
If you are keen, here are some suggested topics I would love some guest bloggers and/or contributors to:
Wellness, Health, Inspiration & Productivity, Relationships (Platonic and Romantic), Personal Growth, Money & Finances, Career, Work and Play Balance, Adventure, Interior Design, Home Décor, How-to Guides, Fashion and Beauty, Minimalism, Blogging, Influencing, Race, Gender, and Genral Life Advice.
I am hoping for raw, honest and challenging pieces for some of these topics, to really allow
engagement. (P.S This list is not exhaustive and I am open to submissions of all natures. Just send me an email for confirmation).
Anyone that would like to guest blog or contribute can email me on email@example.com, with your
idea, questions, suggestions etc. Once I understand what you’re trying to convey, I will send a confirmation email to let you know that you can start on your piece, with notes on deadlines and proposed publishing dates.
I hope to publish the first guest post or contribution piece early next year (2023) …
Please note the following rules:
-This is not a paid opportunity. It is merely my way of starting some collaborations with other writers and bloggers of similar interest.
-All your intellectual property rights will remain vested in yourself, and you will be named and
referenced at the end of your guest post or contribution.
-You should submit photo to accompany your post. Preferably your own photos, however, if sourced elsewhere, please include clear references as to avoid copyright infringement claims.
- Please note that I am also accepting anonymous contributions, if you would not like to be named. I will keep all anonymous submissions as just that, anonymous.
-You will also be expected to submit a short profile of yourself, with all social media links, just so people can find you elsewhere. This is not a must if you would like you post to remain anonymous.
-You and I can work together on a joint post, or I can suggest that you work with another
blogger/contributor should I notice your proposed contribution content to be too similar to separate.
-I will not accept any hate speech or negative content that might result in prejudice or discrimination against anyone.
Let’s work together and share in our creativity and bloggers and writers. I look forward to hearing
from all of you!
