Keys to a Successful Guest Post

In the past, only a handful of guests posts have been published on TMN. (One of those was by Chris Brogan…)

Here are the keys, or rules if you must, to getting a guest post on TMN:

  1. Original Posts Only – Your post should be new material that has not been published on another site. You may link to it, but it should not be re-posted on your site or elsewhere.
  2. Appropriate Content – Read some of my writings and you will get an idea of the types of topics and posts that I publish on this site. If you do not read TMN, you probably shouldn’t submit a guest post.
  3. My Choice – I publish guest posts at my discretion. Do not get discouraged if I turn down your post. I may not like your topic, idea, format or it just may not be the right time for that topic on TMN. I invite you to submit again in the future.
  4. Not for Advertising – TMN is not a place for advertising your product. No affiliate links. No self reviews. That is what your website it for.
  5. Have fun – Enjoy yourself and be original! If you don’t have a passion for time management this may not be the blog for you to write for. :)

How to Submit a Guest Post:

Format – Your guest post should be 500-800 words in length. I tend to avoid posts over 1000 words. Send your article via the form below.

Editing, Spelling and Grammar – The more I have to edit your post, the less likely it will be chosen for publication. You should have checked it for spelling, grammar, and punctuation. I reserve the right to edit your post for wording and simplicity, but will not change the overall meaning.

Bio – Readers will want to know about you when reading your guest post. Please include a 2-3 sentence bio. Please keep this simple and to the point. I have denied posts in the past due to extravagant or exaggerated bios. You should tell the reader who you are, what you do, and where to find you. You may include up to two links in your bio: one to your website homepage and one to your social media account (Twitter, FB, or G+). You may not link to products. (See Rule #4 ).

Tell Me About Yourself – Social media and being online is about making connections. Briefly tell me about yourself, your website, the size of your readership, and why you want to write for TMN. Just a few sentences is good here, but the better I understand you and your background, the more likely your post will be accepted.

  • Please put "GUEST POST" at the beginning of your title, just to make sorting things on the backend a bit easier for us.
  • Your guest post should be 500-800 words in length and checked for spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Basic HTML can be entered here.
  • Please include a 2-3 sentence bio. Please keep this simple and to the point. Basic HTML can be entered here.

After You Submit

I will respond to your submission and let you know if it has been accepted or not.

If I do not approve your submission do not fret. It could be due to current volume, or that your topic is off topic for now, or whatever. I encourage your to submit again in the future if this happens.

Once your post goes live, I expect you to interact with the readers and respond to comments on your post. Again, being online is all about connecting.

Best wishes, and I hope to hear from you soon!
