Copyblogger Guest Post Guidelines


It’s no secret we accept articles from others here at Copyblogger. In fact, we’re always eager to feature smart new voices with something relevant to say to you all.

But… we’ve never had any published guidelines. So I asked Sonia Simone to consider what those guidelines should be.

When you think about it, what we’ve come up with is great advice for submitting an article anywhere. So, whether you’re thinking of submitting something to us or not, go check out Sonia’s What Makes a Great Copyblogger Guest Post.

We’re looking forward to all those fresh new voices in the new year.

And thanks to Tony Clark for the impromptu LOLcat. :)

    Useful, relevant and well written…sounds like the guidelines for any publication – not just blogs.

    Problem is, sometimes the obvious combination of the three can be so elusive (as I’ve spent the better part of my day struggling with writer’s block).

    It just shows that you and I were on some secret wavelength thing.

    I have an embarrassing addiction to LOLcats. If I could get away with illustrating every post I write with one, I would.

    Nothing beats “tests for success” …

    I like’em!

    They passes the A.R.T. test (accurate, relevant, timely). Actually, they also passes the “insight” and “actionable” test too.

    If there’s one thing I value about guest posts on CopyBlogger .. it’s, er, … value.

    i agree i would have relevance, good keywords, no pointless hyperlinks (i see alot of guest bloggers do this), no list posts that go no where, no over exerted posts. i would go for keywords over well written pieces :-)

    The irony.

    The url for the ‘guidelines’ hasn’t adhered to the guidelines!! 😉

    I’ll maybe have to hit you up, Brian. I’m not sure if I’m up to the high calibre of writing on here… but, I might be willing to give it a shot.

    I’m glad copyblogger is taking guest posts! Why? Because yesterday I went on a post reading binge around here, and when I came back to my senses I’d just finished writing an article which may just suit the guest posting bill. I would surely love hearing your thoughts on this piece.

    To this effect, I just introduced myself from the official contact form. However, there was no follow-up message after the contact was submitted? I’m not 100% sure you got the message (hence this back-up comment), so I’d like to recommend adding a confirmation blurb to that contact form.

    Thanks for the attention,
