We are excited to announce that we now welcome guest posts! We are looking for highly relevant and useful information to be written for our readers and customers. Please follow these guidelines when submitting a guest post request.

Content

Guest post content should be focused on practical and actionable information on one of the following four topics:

  • Lifestyle
  • Nutrition
  • Travel
  • Wellness
Please refer to our main menu to see a list of subcategories.

Author Byline

Your post should include your author byline at the bottom. We will format your byline consistent with the appearance of our internal author bylines which you can view at the bottom of any post on our blog. The byline is a great way for you to become better known to our readers, and for them to discover more about your skills and knowledge via the description and up to 3 external links you care to share (see below).

Byline Guideline

  • Bylines should be no more than 2-3 sentences telling readers who you are, what you do, and where to find you.
  • You may include, at your option, a profile headshot image of you in JPG or PNG format that is 300 by 300 pixels.
  • You may have up to 3 properly formatted anchor text links that goes to your Web site, blog, social media or any free resource of educational content that is directly related to the topic and central theme of the post.

Content Guideline

  • Your post must be fresh and original content that has not been published before.
  • Your post should be between 500 – 2000 words long.
  • Bylines should be no more than 2-3 sentences telling readers who you are, what you do, and where to find you.
  • You agree not to publish the post elsewhere, except for your own personal blog or website. If you are reposting from your website, you shall put a link to your guest post in the original post on your site.
  • You may link to external sources of the specific things you talk about for helping the reader to get a fuller understanding. Avoid, however, self-promotional links or those that lead to sales pages or may be construed as advertising.
  • We encourage guest bloggers to link to other Colours of nature posts that are relevant to the topic and discussion.
  • We encourage the use of sub-headings, ordered and unordered lists, appropriate images and sufficient white space formatting that makes the copy scan able and easy to ready.
  • You may provide a main image no smaller than 700 or larger than 1500 pixels wide in JPG or PNG format. You may provide additional images to fit within the flow of the copy (one image for every approx. 350 words of text). You must have ownership or creative common license rights to use these images and give attribution where appropriate.
  • By submitting a guest post you ensure it does not violate any copyright laws.

Submitting your Guest Post

  • Upload your post below or email it to us in the body of the email or as a MS Word (.doc or .docx) attachment.
  • Type “Guest Post Request” in the subject line of the email.
  • Be sure to include your contact information so we know how best to get a hold of you.
  • In submitting your blog post or topic idea, please also tell us briefly about yourself, your Web site, readership and social media networks.
  • Note: Alternatively, you may submit your topic idea in lieu of the full post. When submitting your topic idea, give us: a strong working title, central theme and how you see this resonating with our audience.

Post submmission process

  • Please allow 5-7 business days to hear back from us once you’ve submitted your guest post or topic idea.
  • Your post may be accepted as is, or with minor edits for greater clarity, grammar and punctuation. If we feel your post is on-point but needs more substantive changes, we will email you back with our thoughts and request for revision.
  • Do not be offended if your post is not accepted for publication. It could be very well written, but just not the right topic or message for this particular time. If your post is rejected, do not be discouraged and feel free to send different proposals later.
  • Thanks again for your interest in being a guest blogger on the Colours of Nature. We look forward to receiving your submission!
