We’d love to have other old souls guest blog on our site! To do so, we have a few simple guidelines to follow and information we need to collect before posting. In return, you get links on our guest bloggers page (yes, links – plural!) and a free chance to advertise for your blog or business.
- Original content only. In exchange for your blog post, you will get a link to your choice of URL on your blog post. You will also get the chance to have a square photograph, up to 5 links (so you can link your social media too!) and a paragraph-long biography on our guest bloggers page. Free advertising and SEO!
- Your post must fit into the “old soul” branding ITFTS instills on the web, or more, it should not not fit into said branding. Some acceptable blog topics include:
- Highlights of a city (no listicles, please!), in which there is a discussion about a city’s feel, what there is to do, and what you brought from being there.
- An interesting thing that happened to you abroad, which other people would find amusing. This would also include attending a cultural event.
- What you learned from a long-term experience abroad.
Posts that will probably not be accepted:
- Overviews of an entire vacation. Limit yourself to one confined location, please.
- Advertisements and political posts.
- Strongly negative posts. Positive vibes only!
- Upon acception of your post, I will email you for your links, image and short biography. I must receive this to publish your post.
- You may choose to remain anonymous. Please let me know if that is the case.
Additionally, you must tell me if you’d like something published around a certain date (e.g. a post about a cherry blossom festival being published before spring rather than during summer). Otherwise I will queue it with my personal posts.
- Your post will not be edited so please use proper grammar and spelling.
- All images are saved and put on my own server. They will be resized to fit site standards.
- Limit 1 blog post per 6 months. You can submit several posts at the same time but they will be published 6 months apart. This rule applies to anonymous posters as well.
- We’d like that your post be here to stay but you do have the right to ask us to remove it from our site.
We try to maintain a strong brand here at ITFTS so please don’t take it personally if your post is not accepted. It could be something as simple as having a post too similar to one already published.
Submit Your Post!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your blog post and pictures. You can have it all in a Word document, post everything in the email itself, or just have a bunch of attachments, as long as I can get it.
Unless specified otherwise, I will arrange the pictures and text in a way I see fit.
We can’t wait to read what you have to offer!
