We welcome guest articles and we invite YOU to submit an article. Really!
We’re always looking for personal self-improvement stories or original thoughts on any self-improvement topic.
We do not accept anything pornographic, racist, homophobic, derogatory or just downright mean! We’re not really interested in product pitches or MLM. We will, occasionally, post a paid -promotional article. We don’t have a problem with self-promotion, but keep the links in line with the content and don’t be spammy about it.
While we love guest articles, we do NOT love guest articles that are poorly written, have spelling or grammatical errors, and are not prepared for Search Engine Optimization (SEO). You worked hard on the article, and you have things to say that help others, so make it the most readable article you can. If you are a grammar drop-out or if English is not your first language, I recommend that you get a program such as Grammarly to help you polish your article and submit something that readers enjoy. And, if you do not use Grammarly, please at least use Spellcheck. You can click the box to the right to give Grammarly a try.
(Note: In the interest of full disclosure, I am an affiliate of Grammarly, and I will receive a portion of sales made on this blog. But know two things: 1) I’ve tried almost every grammar/spelling program available and Grammarly excels, and 2) I cannot continue spending hours editing articles that are poorly written and do not rate for SEO without charging for my time. I want to be able to continue posting guest articles.)
