Guest Submissions

Thank you for your interest in contributing. Below are some guidelines to consider when writing and submitting guest submissions.

So Why Write A Guest Submission For Our Everyday Challenges?

  1. Gain exposure. Guest submissions are promoted to our community via email and social media.
  2. Be original. Stories should not have been previously published elsewhere. An exception may be allowed if it was published on your own blog to a small audience.
  3. Length doesn’t matter. I’m not a word counter, so it doesn’t matter to me whether it takes 500 or 5,000 words to tell your story.
  4. Include a bio. Please include a short bio with up to 2 links that will appear at the bottom of the post. If you would like to update your bio in the future just send me a quick email and I’ll be happy to change it.

Links Within Your Guest Submission

  1. Limit self-promotion. If you have a product or service you are looking to promote please send email for marketing.
  2. Links within your post to be relevant articles either on Our Everyday Challenges or other blogs are OK.

Guest Submission Preferances

  1. The lead image is something I normally select, but if you have a suggestion please let me know. Most of the images I choose come from Pexels or Unsplash.
  2. Your post may be edited. I normally leave posts untouched, but in some cases, I may edit things such as the title, grammar, format, etc.
  3. Word format preferred. There is no need to send an HTML version.
  4. I do accept paid/ sponsored posts. A request for a sponsored post may be sent via our conact form.
  5. A relevant and insightful quote at the start of a story is a great way to grab attention and can help with promotion on social media networks.
  6. A question for readers at the end of your story is a great way to encourage comments.
  7. Promote and share your story with your network!

Sound OK?

If so please get in touch by emailing me at oureverydaychallenges@outlook.com with “Guest Post Submission” in the subject line.
If I enjoy your post I will write back with a suggested date to publish the story. Otherwise, I’ll let you know that I’m passing on the submission so you can publish it elsewhere.

I look forward to hearing from you!
