Guest Posting Guidelines

I accept a limited number of guest posts on AlmostPractical.com and most are by invitation only.

My readers are very important to me, so I spend a lot of time on writing my blog posts and delivering valuable content. If you are not a blogger, you might be surprised at the number of hours that go each and every post. If you are a blogger, then you know what I am talking about.

As a potential guest post author, I hold you to the same standard that I hold for myself.

Here Are the Guidelines to Follow

  1. Read through some of the articles on AlmostPractical.com to become familiar with the targeted audience.
  2. The topic that you write about should appeal to this audience and should contain information that will help them in some way.
  3. Your guest post should be between 700 to 1000 words.
  4. The content of your post should be completely original and not published anywhere else online or offline.
  5. Your post should NOT be self promotional. It cannot be an advertisement about you, your product, or your service.
  6. You may include up to two relevant links within your content to reputable and authoritative websites (not your own and no affiliate links), if necessary to support points made in your article.
  7. Your article must be written in English, using good grammar, spelling, and punctuation. It should be easy to understand and written with a web audience in mind. (short sentences and paragraphs, not too wordy, broken up into sections with headlines)
  8. Include two images sized as follows:
    • 1000 x 1500 (shareable for Pinterest)
    • 1200 x 628 (shareable for Facebook and Twitter)
  9. Both images can be the same photo but sized according to the above dimensions
  10. The photo should be taken and owned by you with an email statement to me stating your ownership – please no stock photography, paid or free. Also, please do not include people in your photos or I will also need a signed model release.
    As such you will be giving me permission to use and distribute these photos on AlmostPractical.com and also on social media to promote your guest post.
    You are also giving me permission to apply text overlays to these photos to further promote your guest post.
  11. Please submit a one paragraph author bio of no more than 50 words. Your author bio may include 2 links – one to the homepage of your website and another to one of your social media profiles for your business, or to a subscribe page on your website's domain.
  12. Also, please make sure that the email that you use is associated with a Gravatar on Gravatar.com – as this is where the photo to accompany your bio will pull from.
  13. I reserve the right to edit your guest post and the links within. I also reserve the right to add links within your content to relevant articles on AlmostPractical.com
  14. As a guest post author you are required to promote your guest post actively on your social media profiles and respond to any comments on your guest post.
  15. I would also appreciate it if you would share a link to the article on your blog and in your email newsletter.
