Parenting/Motherhood Blogger Guest Posts:
I love collaborating with other bloggers and am open to guest posts here on Fab Working Mom Life. This is a family lifestyle blog, and I typically post about motherhood and being a working mom, parenting/raising young kids, and women’s issues. I’m also a military spouse and sometimes have posts on that topic as well.
Acceptable guest post topics will have something to do with motherhood and the working mom life, women’s issues or family concerns for families of young kids. No religious or political content. No salesy content.
Most of my audience is mothers in their 20s and 30s with young children, most of them work either outside the home or work from home, and they are located in the United States, so the guest post needs to be targeted appropriately to this audience.
The Fine Print
No sponsored/brand, company, or product links allowed in free guest posts or bios – we can discuss a sponsored contributed post instead for an advertising fee.
All external links are “nofollow” by default with a plugin. I can specify exceptions, but I tend to do so only for websites I know and trust and for very quality guest posts. No exceptions will be set for companies or brands. No exceptions for commercial links. If your only reason for requesting a guest post is an expected follow backlink, this might not be a good collaboration. Besides, Google already devalues links from guest posting (Source).
No affiliate links unless otherwise approved. Instead, you may link to your blog post that contains your affiliate link of the item. I reserve the right to add my own affiliate links to the post as well as remove any links that I do not approve of.
Must have your own blog or site. I’m getting too many spammy guest post requests from “freelancers” getting paid to post on other blogs – if you’re getting paid to insert links, you will pay a contributed post fee. Don’t spam other bloggers; make a connection before you request to guest post.
Please make sure your posts are edited for clarity and grammar prior to submittal. You can use tools like Grammarly (even the free browser extension is super helpful).
I also reserve the right to edit the post language as necessary for clarity and alignment with this blog’s values. No keyword stuffing is allowed but please provide your post’s keyword as part of the guest post. A good rule of thumb for post length is at least 500 words.
If you include images in your guest post, please provide the source of these images and confirm they are free to use under creative commons. Include the direct link to the stock photo for confirmation.
Submitted guest posts must be original and will be checked for plagiarism. Submitted content becomes the property of this blog. Should you want to publish on your own blog or elsewhere, the content must be edited and unique.
Please submit your guest post in a word document, your keyword, and attach any images separately – including the image source link for verification of terms. Include your blogger bio, website, and social media links.
Guest posts are published once a week and scheduled in order of receipt. I am currently scheduling posts one month ahead. Or we can discuss an expedited post rate of $25.
Ready to pitch?
Please submit your topic and details about what you plan to include in the post, as well as your blog link, and we can discuss the details.
