Guest Post Submissions Guidelines
We’re always looking for guest bloggers! Want to write about travel, budgeting, backpacking, and exotic places? Sounds awesome! Shoot us a message with your idea for a post. You can write just once, or on a regular basis if you like.
All submissions (and request for submissions) must follow the guidelines! Read this or your message will be ignored.
- 750-word minimum
- No links in your post unless it is relevant to travel or of interest to a traveler
- Any links in the article or your by-line must be to a travel-related site
- Proper English grammarrrrr and spelllllingggg.
- The post must be unique and not published elsewhere on the internet
- We only accept “normal” guest posts from actual travel bloggers. If you write for or represent, a company that provides commercial travel services or products, then we will sometimes accept a sponsored guest post. If that is what you’re interested in, please contact us for more information, as we have a different set of guidelines for such requests.
If you send us an email that only contains a vague request for a guest post, it is very likely that your request will be ignored.
When sending your request, please include the following information:
- Your idea(s) for a topic
- Your website/blog
- A funny joke
If you contact us with poor English and poor grammar, we will also ignore your message. The quality of the writing is important to us. If you can’t get it right in an email, how can we trust that you will write the actual post with proper grammar?
If you have an idea for a post, send us a message about it before sending the actual article. We will not accept posts that are an advertisement or advertorial. We will also not accept posts from non-travel related companies and websites. Make sure your include your travel-related website in your request. (Otherwise, please contact us about sponsored post opportunities.)
Ideally, all posts should be at least 750 words in length. We have no set maximum length, but shorter posts are not accepted. Quality is better than quantity, but too little quantity is just bad.
If you wish to submit photos, please note that all photos must have proper copyright and/or creative commons permissions, credits, and links where required. Do not embed photos into Word documents, please. If you need help finding stock photos, we are happy to help.
We also ask that authors include a few sentences about themselves for the by-line. A gravatar-enabled email address is also good to have for the photo. Your email address will not be shown.
If you just want to submit an article that contains a large amount of photos with less text (a photo essay, or something similar) then you may ignore the 750 word minimum (but not the other requirements). You don’t have go to the trouble of writing an entire post. Just tell us a little about the photos. As long as the photos are worthy of standing alone in their own post, we will publish it. (We’ll link back to your travel blog, of course.)
In summary, if you want to write a post, send us a message with the following information:
A summary of the post you’ve written, or plan to write.
Your website. If it’s not travel-related, don’t waste your time or our time.
