Just a note to anyone whom I have already contacted about guest-blogging: feel free to ignore this post as it will be quite redundant.
Well, now the cat’s out of the bag because I told you that this post was going to be about guest-blogging. For the past month or so I’ve been mulling over the idea of featuring other writers on my blog, through the form of guest posting. I began this plan by contacting just one like-minded individual whom I thought would write a great guest-blog post. So, I asked him if he would be interested in writing something for my blog. He was like my guinea pig.
I have to say, the process was quite quick and painless. You’ll get to see his post the first Wednesday of February.
After my experience setting that up, I contacted a handful of other fellow writers – mostly because I wanted to see how more people would react to my proposal before I made it public, and so that I would have a place to start. Because the response was so positive, starting February, I will be featuring one guest-blog per week for as long as we can sustain this.
Now I turn the question over to everyone else: who would like to write something for my blog?
Unfortunately, I’m singling out writers, as this is a blog focused around writing. I’m really interested in connecting with other writers out there, hearing what they have to say and sharing our thoughts amongst ourselves.
If you’ve been an avid follower, you may have noticed a few posts of mine that dealt with character creation, setting inspirations and just explaining why I write. In case some of you are getting tired of my ramblings of the same things, I thought it would be really awesome to hear from some other writers out there. I think it would really add value to my blog.
So, I ask again: who wants to write something for my blog?
Oh…I guess I should tell you what I’m looking for.
1-The guest post must be about writing. After that, it’s pretty much an open topic. Explore it as you will. You can write about writing, characters, plot, setting, all of the above, etc. Write about poetry or stories or novels or screenplays. Or simply write about why you write, how long you’ve been writing, what inspires you to write, etc. As long as it’s about writing, your post can find a home here.
2-Length should be no less than 300 words (like that’s a pretty wimpy length if you want to take on something so great as writing 😉 ) and no more than like 1,500 words. I would say a happy medium would be ideal. Most of my posts tend to fall between 500-800 words. No one seems to complain about that.
That’s pretty much all I’ve got. If you’re interested, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’ve got any questions, you can email me those, too, or post it in a comment. If you don’t have any questions, feel free to just send your post through email to me.
PLEASE include your name for sure and, if possible, a website I can link to in the post.
Once I get your post I’ll be able to confirm with you the specific date I will post it. I’m going to do like a first-come, first-serve basis. With that in mind, it could be up to month from the time I get your post to the time I will actually post it (as I’m only posting once a week). For this, it would probably be better if you just emailed me to let me know whether you’re interested or not and I’ll give you a rough estimate as to when is a free week for your post to go up.
I feel like I’m rambling so much. It always happens when I stay up later than normal. So, I’m just going to shut up now. If you’re interested in guest-blogging, email me and if you have any questions, do th same. I’ll stop wasting your time now!
