Submit a Guest Post Instructions
*Last updated on November, 2020
Welcome to Inspiration Wise,
I appreciate your interest to write as a guest blogger. Please read the whole instructions, as I’ve listed the promotional methods for your guest post at the end. I’ve also included a separate section for sponsored blog posts.
Please note – a guest post is not the same as a sponsored post. You write the guest post if:
- you look for blogging connections
- you want to showcase your writing abilities to your clients
- you look for backlinks to your blog/website
- other SEO reasons
Guest posting is free. This means that you won’t be compensated for your writing, nor I will ask for payment of any kind.
If you wish to be paid, please consider pitching your posts to another blogger. I don’t pay for blog posts (currently).
Inspiration Wise aims to offer both evergreen articles and new ideas to its readers. Please check some of the published articles before submitting your own to make sure you’ll fit in.
You can write on the following topics:
- Writing related topics
What inspires you to write, your writing process, etc. Note: If you submit an excerpt of your book, in some cases I’ll allow it to stay in the article (when it showcases the point of the article, when it’s interesting, when it’s short). This is a writing and literature blog, but promoting a book is done differently than writing a blog post.
- Book reviews and literature related topics
If you read an interesting book and wish to review it on my blog, I’m down with it! I usually don’t have the time to do book reviews due to my blogging obligations. Note: I believe that every genre has its audience, so if you wish to review some “taboo” books, the review should be done tastefully, as much as that is possible.
- Publishing related topics
Have you discovered some new platform or some new marketing trick for our books? That’s what you can cover in the article. Or simply share the experience, good or bad.
- Blogging related topics
SEO, marketing methods, bringing traffic to the blogs, experience, etc.
- Personal opinions on the matters stated above
I welcome personal opinions, as I believe in the freedom to express ourselves. But be ready to handle the fire that can come after we click publish and share your article with the world.
Contact me via form below to send me your idea/pitch. If your idea fits in, I will let you know and you can then send the article once you’re done.
Your blog post will have your info in the block at the end, so make sure to prepare a short bio, your social media links and your photo.
I will promote your guest post throughout social media networks – Twitter, Camooni, Pinterest and other social media.
Note on Facebook – For some reason Facebook decided to block my domain. You won’t be able to share your article there so we’ll use Medium to get a shareable link. No, Bit.ly won’t work, I’ve tried it. Maybe this issue disappears once I move to another hosting, but for now, there’s nothing I can do.
Images for blog posts are provided by me.
I allow 1 do follow backlink in your author’s bio/blog post.
If you’re looking to write a blog post and promote your service by including a specific link and anchor words, please be honest beforehand. I consider that to be a sponsored blog post, and I charge $10 for it. The link will be marked as Sponsored, per Google’s guidelines. Payments are made via PayPal. As all other posts, those posts remain permanent and will be promoted equally as the other ones.
If you want me to write an article about your company, kindly see my rates here.
Do your best to interlink some of my previous blog posts too.
Outbound links should be to reputable, literate, related websites, or in some cases other blogs.
I reserve the right to:
- remove/change the links/anchor for non-sponsored links
- edit links
Your article must be unique, interesting and informational.
- Unique means 100% copyscape pass. This rule is due to the need to maintain a good SEO and Google position. Following this rule is a win-win, because it allows Google to rank the article better.
- Interesting means that you can cover many topics around those that I’ve stated, and even if you have a fresh view on something that I already wrote about, you can submit that too.
- Informational means that there should be an external source of information so that our readers can learn more about the topic. Usually, I’d prefer 3 outlinks, but if what you wrote is more on the side of a personal opinion, 2 are the minimum.
Don’t submit copied content.
Do your best to have at least 800 word count.
Once the article has been submitted and published at Inspiration Wise, I reserve the right to further edit or modify the content. I will do so with my best ability to keep your voice and tone intact, but to also spark my readers’ imagination.
