Want to be a guest blogger?
I am taking auditions for guest posts from YOU, my faithful blog readers.
I need a handful of guest posts that I’ll use throughout the summer. My blog is getting over 60,000 visitors per month (100,000 page views) so it’s not bad exposure for you.
If you’re interested, be sure to look over previous guest posts (you can access them by clicking on Guest Bloggers here or under “Find Posts by Subject”). Note their relevance to writers and the high quality of the writing.
Here’s how it will work:
→ In the comments to THIS POST, pitch me your guest post idea.
→ Do NOT email me your pitch.
→ Do NOT write your whole post.
→ I’d like a pitch in no more than 150 words.
→ Remember that a good pitch can include a note about your special qualifications to write about your topic (always true when pitching non-fiction). A good pitch also shows me you can write!
→ Auditions will remain open for ONE WEEK, closing 11:59 pm Eastern time on Friday, May 18.
→ Once all the pitches are in, I’ll choose five to ten of them to become guest bloggers.
→ If yours is chosen, you’ll write a post between 500 and 750 words, properly formatted for WordPress using HTML and including a brief bio, links to your own websites/blogs, and a photo of yourself.
→ I will determine the date your post will appear on the blog (taking into consideration your availability to respond to commenters).
→ I reserve the right to edit your final post and/or reject it should it not meet my expectations based on your original pitch.
→ If you have a question, leave it in the comments.
Sharpen those pencils and get to work!
