Guest Post Guidelines for Work-at-Home School
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.
- You won’t link to an essay writing service website in your post or bio. (We feel strongly that students should be writing their own papers.)
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 days for a response. But since we get a lot of requests, please note that we are unable to respond to every message. We can only respond to those we choose to move forward with. Also, if your pitch does not adhere to the guidelines outlined, you will not receive a response.
If your guest post idea is approved, congratulations! Here are all the nitty-gritty details on submitting your post.
