Quick Blog Tips is happy to accept guest posts, providing they meet the requirements outlined below.
Read This First
QBT does not accept the following:
- paid links;
- irrelevant keyword links placed in the middle of an on-topic post (e.g. “real estate”);
- posts submitted by SEO agencies, on behalf of clients – you must submit your own posts.
If you’re a blogger looking to submit a guest post and you want a link to your blog, that’s fine.
Your guest post must be about blogging, preferably a tip or a list of tips that readers will find interesting and useful.
Features and articles that contain a discussion rather than a tip will be accepted if they are well written.
Quick Blog Tips lives up to its name. Posts shouldn’t be too long.
There isn’t a maximum post length. If you can say it in 300 words, don’t pad out your post to 800 words.
Above all, don’t take forever to make your point. Just be clear and direct.
The post must be written by you, and not already published on another blog or website.
Although we do sometimes revisit older topics in recent posts, please search the existing posts at Quick Blog Tips to ensure you’re not writing a post that’s already been written. If you want to take an old topic and give it a fresh opinion, that’s fine.
How to Submit
Step 1: Finding the Right Topic
Think of a post you’d like to write. Come up with a good title for that post. Don’t write any of the detail yet.
Send an email to web [at] quickblogtips [dot] com with the following subject line: QBT Guest Post.
Include the post title you came up with, and your blog URL so I can check out some of your other posts.
If you wish, you can send me a few post titles so there’s a better chance of finding one that I like.
Step 2: Getting the Post Together
If I like your post title, I’ll ask you to write the content.
You can send me your post as a PDF, a plain text document, a Word document or put it in the body of your email if you prefer.
Please don’t send the post in raw HTML. If you want to make some of the text bold, use a PDF, Word document or an HTML email and actually make the text appear bold so I can see it that way.
If you include any URLs in your post, you can save me some time by including a list of the URLs at the end of the post, too. The list of URLs will not be displayed in your post – it just helps me to add in the hyperlinks.
Don’t worry about sending an image – I will do this.
Step 3: Credit Where Credit’s Due
I want to ensure you are properly credited for your work, and your details are formatted nicely at the end of your post. If this is your first guest post, when sending your post content, please include the following:
- Your name, as you’d like it to appear in the author field. Not too long, please. No URLs or keywords. Real names preferred; a pseudonym is acceptable if it’s how you’re known online.
- An email address that will display your personal photo from Gravatar.com. Your post will look much friendlier if readers can see your avatar.
- Your blog URL, which will be linked from your profile.
- A short bio, just a couple of sentences will do. You can link to your blog and Twitter profile in your bio if you wish.
A Short FAQ
Will you accept a post on topic X?
Simply submit your post title via email and I will say yes or no.
Will you edit my post?
Yes – but I will not change the meaning of the post. Most of the edits I make are simply to ensure a consistent post format at Quick Blog Tips. If your post has a lot of mistakes or doesn’t flow very well, I may send it back to you.
Can I submit more guest posts?
Absolutely. I’d love to have another guest post from you if you’ve got more ideas to share.
