I prefer posts between 500 & 1000 words or less, although a long-list type topic might need more space, in that case, I will not bug about word count. Make sure to proof relentlessly. Write concisely. Know AP Style. Check the popular posts sidebar at right for a sense of what readers like beside what I'm looking for.
So far I'm not paying for posts, it doesn't matter if they had been previously published it should just be unique to appear on this blog. As a guest writer, you will not include any lies in your post, or especially anything that slanders or defamed anyone else. I retain the right to use paid guest post in future ebooks and other products.
However, you may reprint/republish your post after 30 days. Compose your post in MS Word 2003/07/ so that it formats well. If you can, please suggest an image (either free or a cheap one from istockphoto) and provide credit link information. Once your headline and outline has been approved by me and you’ve written your post, send me two things: a .txt or .rtf plain-text version of your proposed post for putting into my Blogspot html mode, and a Word doc for easy read-through. I offer two links in your tagline (or you can stick one of those in the post, if you prefer). That is all. Keep your tagline short – three lines maximum. Have a passion for helping other writers make best of writing and publishing.
Do not send me finished articles without pitching me. They will not be read or accepted. When you’re ready, email me your pitch at authorscurtilage [at] YAHOO DOT co DOT uk with the subject line "Guest Post Pitch" It should include the proposed headline for your post as well as an outline of the points you would cover. If I think there’s potential then, I’ll contact you via email and we’ll publish. I look forward to having terrific guest posts on the blog, and helping to create more awareness platform for writers and readers.
For those writers that get paid for guest posts, sure I like the idea of paying guest writers. But I can't do that now until the site is a profit-making blog.
