Guest Blog Policy
Please select from the choices below. It shouldn’t be too tough.
Please read this entire section before contacting me.
It is very rare that I allow unsolicited guest posts from someone with whom I do not already have an established relationship (via Twitter, blogs, or whatever). If I don’t know you, I will likely only consider allowing a guest post from you if you have a super exceptional kick ass blog or website that is well-trafficked and features content that I really like: funny, irreverent, in-your-face, clever and NOT advice-y. Think Jezebel or The Frisky. Please READ MY BLOG to get a feel for the tone I am looking for.
I DO NOT accept guest posts in these circumstances:
- You are promoting a commercial product, service, brand or website (even if you are disguising the post as an article and “only ask for” a link back to your site).
- You are trying to increase inbound links to your site to boost SEO (and I can tell – I work in marketing).
- You call me “Sir” or “Madam.”
If you feel you meet the criteria and have read this entire section, please e-mail me with 1) a link to your blog/website, 2) links to writing samples and 3) the topic you want to write about. The more specific the better. Please know that articles on dating advice, such as “5 Things Not to Say on a First Date” or “How to Attract the Man/Woman of Your Dreams,” make me want to blow chunks. Unless they are highly satirical or irreverent in nature, they will likely be deleted.
If I do not respond, it generally means I am not interested – I get lots of these requests (mostly from people who do not meet the criteria) and can’t respond to all of them. Also, it’s possible I’m being a slouch and not checking my e-mail, which, by the way, is singlegirlie [at] ymail [dot] com. Yes, that’s a y and not a g. And yes, I buried the e-mail to make sure you read this whole thing. You can also say hey on Twitter.
Aw, shucks, thanks! I can’t do them all, but please shoot me an e-mail at singlegirlie [at] ymail [dot] com and I promise to consider it.
Peace out. Penis.
