A blog’s success is largely decided by the quality of the content that gets published there. I try really hard to ensure that everything I put onto my pages and posts is only the best for the people that come here to learn and engage. I spend a lot of time chronicling what I eat and how I am able to cook for my family and friends, but sometimes life does get in the way. I also have a full time job and a couple of other blogs that I run, so sometimes things get left behind or forgotten about!
That’s where you guys come in. Guest blogging can be beneficial for everyone involved. I get great content from lots of sources on my blog and the guest blogger gets to raise their profile and have a link to their own blog, increasing traffic and getting their name out into the world.
Regardless of your skill level, publishing your blog here can help benefit you and enrich my site.
I am always looking for guest bloggers to help ease the pressure on me to constantly update and inform my readers and you can inquire about doing so by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or using the contact form below. There are a few ground rules, which you can find at the bottom of this page, but I’m not too fussy!
What I Need From You
If you want to submit a post to my site, I don’t need you to be an established writer or to have a portfolio that spans across decades. There are a few things that I need from you though, which you’ll find here.
English doesn’t have to be your first language, but all posts published here, must be written in English. I can help you to edit these so they are of good quality and acceptable to be posted to my public. I have a degree in journalism and know a thing or two about writing!
I also need the post you submit to be relevant to the blog. If you’ve had a look at my blog, you’ll know that Big Appetite is about food and eating and kitchens. Any content that you submit must be relevant to this genre and not just random content. You can submit one of your own recipes, information about becoming a chef, restaurants, healthy eating… be imaginative!
It should also be more than 500 words. Google doesn’t tend to index web pages that are less than 500 words and I work hard to keep my blog fully optimised for search engines. Deindexed pages do not help me with that.
Examples of Post Titles
Sometimes, it can be hard to come up with a title or topic, but it shouldn’t be scary to put yourself out there! You don’t have to treat these as bible, you can always get in touch with me about a possible post and we cna discuss it from there about whether it needs tweaking or adjusting.
Here are some examples of what you might want to write about for the blog:
- The Healthiest Snacks to Fulfill Your Cravings
- The Best Knives on the Market
- How to Feed a Family of Four on a Budget
- Tips for Making Food Shopping Easier
But don’t let this inhibit you! Like I’ve said, be creative, there’s nothing interesting about having to adhere to rules and regulations!
How You Can Add a Post
Submitting content for review couldn’t be easier! I keep an eye on my emails, even when I’m super busy and I’ll always try and respond to you as quickly as possible. You can either use the contact form below, or email me at email@example.com (hint: they both go to the same inbox!), with an idea and we’ll discuss the conditions of posting and what we need from each other.
I’m happy to discuss all options so don’t be shy!
