Want to write a guest post for the Work-At-Home School blog? Great! We’re always looking for high-quality, relevant content to feature. We have a very active and engaged audience who LOVE hearing from other leaders in the work-at-home community.
First off, let’s make sure you agree with the following:
- Do you have a reputable online presence (and offline, for that matter)? You’re not a spam artist, and you don’t publish crap content or deceive the online community in ANY way.
- You have a proven track record of quality content, either on your own blog/social media or other guest posts you’ve written.
- You have a very strong command of the English language and your guest post will NOT require heavy editing.
- You agree to write original, unique content that is not and will not be featured ANYWHERE else.
- You’re cool with giving Work-At-Home School full rights to your post.
- You’ll help promote your guest post on your own blog/social media/email list.
- You’ll answer any comments that are made on the guest post.
Sound good? Then let’s get started!
If you’re ready to pitch your idea, here are three easy steps to follow:
- Check out the Work-At-Home School blog to see what types of content we publish, our writing style, and the topics we’ve discussed in the past.
- Create an outline of your post with the post title and subheads of your main points.
- Include at least one link to a Work-At-Home School blog post you’ll reference in your own post.
Email all this to [email protected], along with 1–3 links to content you’ve published in the past. Allow up to 10 business days for a response (we get a TON of requests). The WAHS content manager will get back to you with any feedback and a decision on moving forward.
