Guest Posting Guidelines
The Lingerie Addict may be the best place on the internet for lingerie-related articles, photos, and reviews, but even I don’t know everything on the subject. That’s why I love publishing what you have to say… in the form of guest posts!
Guest posts proposals are accepted on a rolling basis and are published, on average, within 2-4 weeks after final draft submission. I’m looking for content that hasn’t been covered on the blog before, so please search for your intended subject or title before e-mailing your proposal to me.
While I believe that very strict standards limit an author’s creativity, here are a few guidelines that will make your post much more likely to be published:
1) Be useful, fun, and interesting. Visitors come to The Lingerie Addict looking for answers to their lingerie questions. They want clear, relevant, information they can use right now. On the other hand, lingerie isn’t rocket science, so keep your posts lighthearted as well. Finally, avoid rehashing what other people are already doing; bring something creative to the table.
2) Posts must not be published anywhere else online, including to your own blog. All submitted articles should be original content written exclusively by you. Articles which fail to adhere to these guidelines will be rejected. Articles which appear on other blogs or sites after publication here will be taken down and all links removed.
3) Please double-check spelling and grammar, write a brief bio (1-3 sentences) for your introduction, and include one or two links to your blog or some other piece you’ve written. If you have an illustration that you believe especially fits your article, please include that as well. Do not use affiliate links. If you are a storeowner or retailer wanting to write a “guest post” as a promotion, please refer to my advertorial guidelines here.
After you tell me about your proposal, I’ll let you know if I’m interested in seeing the full article. Once the final draft is submitted, I’ll confirm receipt within 48 hours, and get back to you with any editing or revision issues (if necessary) within one week. When your article is publish-ready, I’ll let you know when you can expect it to appear on the blog. Please feel free to promote your appearance here on your own blog, Facebook, Twitter, or website.
Any questions, proposals, or submissions should go to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m looking forward to reading what you have to say!
