Note: I’m not accepting guest posts for Simple Homeschool at this time.
• Posts begin with a photo 675 pixels wide. The photo must be credited with an appropriate source, and must be legal to use. Be sure you include the hyperlink to the photo source so we know where to credit it if necessary.
Approximately two-three photos per post are recommended. High quality photos of your own are definitely preferred, but not required. Please turn one of the photos into a square image with text for Pinterest/Instagram, and also include one horizontal image without text for Facebook.
• Post length should be 600-800 words.
• Posts must fit into one of the categories represented on the blog.
• The tone of your post should be knowledgable, yet still informal and friendly. Please review past posts to make sure yours is of a similar style. Keep in mind that readers come from a variety of perspectives, faiths, and backgrounds.
• All posts should come from personal experience. The best ones tell a story about something that happened, or is happening, to you personally, and what you’ve learned from it.
Capture readers’ attention with a hook story at the beginning, and conclude with 1-2 sentences that wrap up the concept.
• Links back to your own blog or site should fit the content of your post. If you include too many links, chances are low it will be published. 1-5 links maximum please, and only those that really fit your post.
* Personal affiliate links in guest or contributor posts are not allowed.
• Posts end with a brief author’s bio that links to the site (or sites) of the author’s choice. The author’s bio photo is pulled from their registered email at Gravatar. Please include a 1-2 sentence bio with your post submission.
• We reserve the right to edit your submission for brevity, grammar, readability, and sometimes for meaning. If too much editing is required to make the post useful, chances are low that it will be published.
• You retain the copyright to your writing, but once it’s submitted we reserve the right to use and refer to it, both on SimpleHomeschool.net, the Simple Homeschool podcast, as well as on social media (always with giving credit back to you as the author, of course).
