Guest Post Guidelines

Update for 2014: Guest blogging is still a hot topic, though as much for the negative as positive. I have new guidelines for 2014.

##

Guest posting is a hot thing right now, and I occasionally get offers to put up a guest post.  Years ago, “No” was my automatic and reasoned response.  Now, I’m a “You Bet” guy with guest posting, for several reasons:

  • If my site can spotlight someone else’s work, fantastic – especially if it helps them be more findable
  • Folks might get tired of my voice and style. A new voice is always welcome
  • There’s Always Room For One More Good One

Here’s the crux of the email I’ve been sending out to the requests I receive:

I’d be glad to post contributions that would inform or educate small, individual, or startup businesses or educational organization grow and improve. Any submission would be gladly received.  A couple of thoughts:

  • The piece should have an ample amount of “eye rests
  • I’d think anything on how blogging (or social media use) assists in building business or a student’s learning would be grand.
  • If you have links to promote (yours business, affiliates, etc), I’m cool with that as long as they point to a resource that would be helpful for the reader.

It would be helpful to have a bio to plug at the bottom.  I’d prefer to start with your sending the piece and I’ll post.

Simple right? I don’t think most folks I send this email to read it. Eye rests folks. Eye rests!  And please, no dental hygiene or gambling smarter posts. So here’s the new email I’ll be sending out:

Guest Posting Guidelines for ConverStations

Thanks for your interest. I’d be glad to post contributions that would inform or educate:

  • Small, individual, or startup businesses
  • Educational organizations.
  • Non-Profit organizations or associations.

Any submission would be gladly received.  But before you begin, a couple of thoughts:

  1. First, read this post on Eye Rests (I’ll know if you haven’t, and if you haven’t your post will not be published)
  2. Keep your post to 400 words or less. With Eye Rests!
  3. I’d think anything on how blogging (or social media use) assists in building business or a student’s learning would be grand. Include Eye Rests
  4. If you have links to promote (yours business, affiliates, etc), I’m cool with that as long as they point to a resource that would be helpful for the reader.

It is a requirement to have a bio to plug at the bottom that includes your page on at least one of the following (best case: all) – Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or your blog.  I’d prefer to start with your sending the piece and I’ll post.

Thanks:-)

    Munchen masih perlukan rasa percaya diri dilapangan meski
    sudah menang

    Berita
    terpanas dan terbaru Bola Soccer dari Agen Bola Indo11 – Bayern Munchen berhasil memetik kemenangan di pertandingan
    pertama Bundesliga dengan mengalahkan Borussia Monchengladbach 3-1, Sabtu
    (10/8). Akan tetapi, Pep Guardiola menilai timnya belum sepenuhnya percaya diri
    di lapangan.

    Tiga gol kemenangan Bayern Munchen masing-masing dicetak
    Arjen Robben, Mario Mandzukic, dan David Alaba. Satu gol balasan yang
    diciptakan Borussia Monchengladbach lahir dari aksi gol bunuh diri yang
    dilakukan oleh Dante.

    “Kami tahu ini akan menjadi pertandingan sulit.
    Kontra Monchengladbach selalu membutuhkan kerja keras,” kata Guardiola.

    Menurut berita yang dirangkum oleh agen bola indo11 ,kesulitan dalam pengendalian permainan nampak dalam 15
    menit pertama dibabak kedua meskipun begitu tim sudah puas dengan pencapaian dengan
    kemenangan perdana di Bundesliga . Dengan begitu masih membutuhkan beberapa
    kemenangan lagi untuk dapat membangun rasa kepercayaan diri dilapangan hijau.
