How to Be a Guest Writer for The Lingerie Addict

Did you know that The Lingerie Addict accepts guest posts?

If you’ve got something to say about lingerie, share it with the rest of the world on TLA!

No one person can know everything there is to know about lingerie or talk about it in a way that’s relevant to every person, for that matter. So guest posts are a great way to get viewpoints, perspectives, and opinions on the blog that I and my other writers don’t have access to. In the past we’ve published guest posts on everything from what busty ladies should look for in a bra to how to shop for vintage lingerie to why you should shop in a luxury lingerie boutique. In fact, some of our most popular articles of all time are guest posts from our readers!

I accept guest posts on a rolling basis (that means you can submit them any time), and they’re usually published within 2-4 weeks of your final draft submission – the exact time frame depends on our editorial calendar. There are no word limits, and you don’t have to be a previously published author or work in the lingerie industry to submit a guest post. You just have to have a unique point of view, an interesting subject, and the ability to write about it.

Of course, there are some guidelines, so let me put on my editor’s hat for a second and tell you about them…

  1. Your article must be an original piece of writing. It cannot be published anywhere else prior to publication here, and that includes your own blog.
  2. Press releases and advertisements are not articles. While boutiques and shops are welcome to pitch articles, if the entire piece is about your brand or store with no useful benefit to TLA readers, I’m not interested. Note: The Lingerie Addict does not accept guestposts from SEO firms.
  3. Your article must be lingerie-related. Fortunately, there’s a lot to talk about in our little niche of underwear, so you should be fine, but we don’t accept general fashion, beauty, or shopping pieces.
  4. Your article should be, at most, PG-13. While we have nothing against sex, TLA is not an adult blog or an erotic blog.

Unfortunately, I’m not able to assign or pre-approve topics in advance (i.e. you have to decide what you’re writing about), nor can I offer detailed notes about how to fix it if it’s rejected. In other words, your piece should be publish ready when it’s sent over. I reserve the right to edit your article, and, of course, don’t forget to double check your spelling and grammar! Any photos should be sent over as .jpg or .png attachments, not embedded within a word document.

If your piece is approved, I’ll need you to submit a brief bio for your introduction telling my readers who you are and what you’re about. After that, I’ll let you know when you can expect your article go live and then send you a link when the piece is actually published.

Oh! And all articles should be sent to editor@thelingerieaddict.com.

I’d love to get more pieces from readers up on TLA, so please send them over. I can’t wait to read them!

    Hello there,
    What is the best format for submissions? Do you want images?

      Word document. You should provide your own images, and they should all be ones you have permission to use.
