Guest Post Guidelines for Web Writing Advice

PLEASE NOTE: Effective November 15, 2016, I will no longer be accepting guest post proposals. Thank you!

Hello! Thank you for your interest in sharing your Web Writing Advice with my readers. Occasionally I will partner with a guest blogger who can bring a fresh perspective and ideas to Web Writing Advice.

Your Audience

I’m looking for guest bloggers who can speak to an audience of online writers working in marketing, journalism, blogging, content marketing, public relations and small business.

The topics on Web Writing Advice relate to writing tips, finding writing jobs, growing a small business, the realities of being a freelancer, using social media for business purposes and how to be a more productive writer.

About You

Each post will include a short bio about the guest blogger. You may explain your background, business or services in two to three sentences.

You will also be allowed one link back to your website, blog or professional social media profile.

Anonymous posts will not be considered.

The Approach

Your ideas should be actionable and backed with personal insight so they relate to the reader as a writer “much like you”. The blog is written in AP style with the majority of posts being 400-600 words. Longer or shorter copy is fine, as long as your thoughts are fully expressed and you don’t leave the reader hanging. It’s fine to offer links to helpful resources or other articles that offer more in depth information on the topic.

The Fine Print

  • Guest posts are not paid. However, all posts are promoted across multiple social media channels and to an email subscriber list to help build your audience and professional reputation.
  • No affiliate links are allowed in guest posts.
  • I allow one link back to your website, blog or professional social media profile in your guest blogger bio.
  • Only original, previously unpublished content will be considered.

Making a Pitch

Guest post pitches should include a paragraph summary of the topic you’d like to discuss and a brief idea of the angle you plan to take.

If you have original photography, infographics, screenshots or other artwork to accompany the text, I will consider adding it to the post. Artwork should be labeled with your copyright or a small URL pointing back to your blog or website. No royalty-free or purchased stock imagery will be considered.

Please also include links to your writer’s website or business social media profiles.

If you’d like to propose a guest post for Web Writing Advice, please send an email to with the subject line GUEST POST PROPOSAL. Please allow one week for me to review and respond to your inquiry. Submissions with poor grammar, spelling errors or overly self-promotional topics will not be considered. Web Writing Advice is a blog to help writers, not an advertising outlet.

Once your pitch is accepted, we will mutually agree on a deadline so you have enough time to write the post. I will handle the formatting and posting via WordPress.

Thank you!
