Contribute to Journaling Saves
The best ideas come from our fellow journalers. Here’s your chance to share your own wisdom and tips with the Journaling Saves community!
I am actively seeking guest posts of various kinds for publication on the website. This is a great way to stretch your wings as a content writer, to bond with fellow journal keepers, and to get links back to your website. Journaling Saves has a loyal and active following, so your post will get lots of supportive exposure.
If you’re new to the site, please read a few posts to get a feel for the type of stuff I publish. Below are several options for contributing content to the site. Please read the guidelines carefully to save both you and I energy.
If you have any questions about guest posting, don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
Guidelines for All Contributions
- We love photos! Please include as many photos as you can. Photos must be resized to 72 dpi with a maximum width of 500px. They should be in .jpg format.
- Submissions can be in Word (.doc), Open Office (.odf), or plain text (.txt) format — or pasted into the body of an email. I have both a Mac and a PC so don’t worry about platform. No HTML formatting is necessary.
- Include a couple of sentences about yourself with an optional photo of you.
- Include up to 2 links back to your site.
- If you want readers to be able to contact you, include your email address.
Guest posts should be roughly 700 – 1200 words. It’s a good idea to propose the topic to me before writing the post just so I can make sure you’re headed in the right direction before you pour your heart into it. I’m happy to help you shape your idea into a relevant post for my audience.
If you want to contribute but aren’t sure what to write about, I’ve got a handy list of post ideas to share. Just drop me a line to discuss.
- Download the questions in MS Word or PDF format.
- Send your answers as an email attachment or copy and paste them into the body of an email. Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Include LOTS of photos if you can!
For examples, please read some of my journaling interviews.
- Write about anything journal-related, from notebooks and art journaling supplies to apps, books and card decks.
- Include relevant links. No affiliate links will be acepted.
- Photos, as always, are encouraged!
- If it’s your product, or you have commercial interest in the product, that’s fine — just please clearly state your relationship to the product in your review.
I can’t promise to post all product reviews, but I will consider all of them. First and foremost they must be beneficial to my audience and topic-appropriate.
