Write A Guest Post
Thankyou for your interest in writing a guest post for BenHolmesOnline.com!
I’m always on the lookout for unique and valuable content for my readers. If you believe you have something to say on the topics of Blogging, List building, WordPress, SEO, and similar topics, I’d be happy to take a look at what you have. Here’s information you need to know:
What Topics Will Be Accepted?
Any topic currently on the site, and any topic that can be credibly related to the theme of this site. Basically, if I think my readers would be interested in your article, it has a good chance of being accepted.
What Do I Get Out Of This?
Guest contributors are not paid. But you do get two links to your website, and a wider exposure. Your name will be linked to your website, and you’ll be allowed another link in the bio box. Posts that are over 1,000 words may, at my astonishment at it’s quality, be awarded a third website link. If you don’t have your own website, and don’t update your website regularly, please don’t expect me to be interested in publishing any of your writing.
What Must I Do To Have A Post Accepted?
It must be a minimum of 800 words, and I’m quite comfortable with up to 2,000 words. You need to have a minimum of one photo or graphic, and preferably two (or more!)… Links should go out to any sources used, and photos must be attributed to their original source, or free for use. The post must be completely unique (it will be checked on Copyscape), and cannot be re-used or posted anywhere else. I will retain all rights to your post. I’ve worked long and hard on this website, and will not accept spammy posts, or posts from owners of spammy websites – your post must provide real value to my readers.
What Should My Bio Say?
Your bio should be 2 to 3 sentences about yourself, and also have social links, such as to your Facebook page, Google+, and Twitter. (These links do not count toward your two website links allowed) You can also submit a headshot photo of yourself to go in the Bio box.
Will I Edit Your Post?
Absolutely! I’m very picky about spelling & grammar, and have high standards for posts on this site – so you can expect me to do minor rewrites, and perhaps even add a paragraph or two if I feel it’s necessary. I may resize your photos & graphics to match the site as well.
Categories & Tags?
Please include what you believe would be the main category, and any tags you think would be appropriate – I’ll almost certainly change what you offer, but the less work I have to do to publish your post, the more likely you’ll be to having it accepted.
How Do I Get Started?
Just contact me at ‘Admin at BenHolmesOnline.com’ with the subject header ‘Guest Posting’ – this will get the fastest response from me. Just let me know that you’re interested in guest posting for this site, and let me know the link to your website, and I’ll get back to you right away. If you’ve already written a post that you believe I’d be interested in, you can email it to me, as well as attaching any photos used.
