Thanks for your interest in writing a guest post for The Study Abroad Blog!
To help get your post ready for publishing on The Study Abroad Blog, here are a few guidelines and suggestions for you below.
In short, please make sure it:
- is quality/useful content
- is able to be used exclusively at The Study Abroad Blog
- includes all the information—links, link text, etc.—you want the published version of your post to include
- infringes no copyright laws
- includes a headline, body text, and your bio.
If you would like to submit an idea for a guest post before submitting the actual post, please try and have a relevant topic in mind. The more information you can give me, the better!
I ask that the posts you submit are written exclusively for use by The Study Abroad Blog. My hope is that posts that appear on The Study Abroad Blog don’t appear in the same form elsewhere.
Posts that work best on The Study Abroad Blog are relevant to the overall topic of studying abroad. Of course there’s plenty of sub-topic areas that you can write about including (but not limited to):
- personal study abroad stories
- student travel
- study abroad program reviews
- international education
Please submit your content in Word or plain text format. It would be great if you could also follow these points in preparing your post:
- Headings/Subheadings: please bold them so they stand out.
- Links: either insert the link into the text yourself, or include the URL in brackets immediately after the text you’d like to use as the link text.
Including relevant links is not a problem. If they’re irrelevant or look like advertising/spam, they’ll be taken out.
Your post should be as long as you need it to be in order to convey your message, but between 800 and 1,200 words usually works best.
After looking over and editing your post, I’ll make sure and send a copy back to you with suggested additions, omissions, or changes.
Every guest blogger will get a small paragraph feature (2 – 3 sentences) at the end of the post. It should introduce who you are, what you do, and possibly links to RSS feeds, social media profiles, or contact pages.
I don’t see myself rejecting many posts, however, if it’s full of grammatical errors, is written poorly, isn’t unique content, or doesn’t relate to the topics above, I’ll let you know that it can’t be accepted unless changes are made.
If you have any questions or would like to contact me with your post, you can reach me through the contact form below.
