WordPress isn’t just a place to send words and pictures winging a lonely way out into the ether, it is above all a community and the support shown by bloggers to bloggers is a large part of what makes it, in my mind, the best place to be.

But it is not just the WordPress community that gets involved… bloggers from other platforms are familiar names and friendly faces in the notifications, as well as on Twitter and Google+ etc.

Like many in our little corner of the Blogosphere, I too have benefitted from that support, both as a writer, having met with nothing but kindness and a generosity to share and promote each other’s work and at a personal level.

Artists, Writers, Photographers… lend me your ears…

…and your words and pictures…

What drives you to do what you do? Why do you write? When did you take your first photograph… and why? Do you have a new book coming out? News of an exhibition? What have you learned that you can share? Do you have a story to tell… inspiration to offer… Or advice on writing, publishing, or promoting? Can you share tips on photography or art?

If you would like to have a guest post featured on this blog, please email me at findme@scvincent.com

If you need some inspiration, or would like to see what is required, just click the highlighted names to take a look at these excellent articles by Judith Barrow, Sally Cronin and Mary Smith.Β 

The guidelines are simple…

I will consider only original, family friendly material that is your own work.

I will not consider material that is offensive to any group or organisation.

I am happy to promote the work of any artist or writer, as long as it fits the tone of the blog.

Please note: I do not conduct interviews for guest bloggers, I am not a book-blogger or reviewer… I am a writer happy to promote writers and a reader and who likes to offer other readers something that may interest them.

While I may help with book launches, guest posts, book extracts or helpful/interesting articles are much preferred to straight promo ads.

I am not happy to be spammed by companies wanting to use my blog as a free advertising space…It is not going to happen so don’t waste your time.

Once we have agreed on a guest post, I will need

Your article… between 500-1000 words works best, but don’t feel constrained by a word count! Please submit the article as an attached Word document or in the body of your email.

Up to six photographs in jpeg format attached to your email. Please resize them to a maximum of 1000 pixels on the longest side if you can. If you don’t have pictures, I probably have some that will work.

A brief bio.

Links to your website/blog and main social media/Amazon/Goodreads accounts.

Please note: If you don’t know how to resize images, or have any other technical questions, just let me know. Please do not just insert the images into your article or send the lot as a pdf as it takes me the best part of an hour to unpick the text and pictures before I can even begin to follow links and format the post.

I will…

Create and schedule your post, letting you know the time and date. I will also send you a direct link when it is published unless I am away from home and the computer at the time.

Post links to the article across my social media accounts, including the blog feed at Goodreads.

It is a good idea to keep an eye on any comments on the day of publication, and over the next few days… You can ‘subscribe to comments’ to get email notifications when you leave a comment on your article by checking the box below the reply before pressing send, or manage notifications in your settings.

Don’t be shy… come and share your work!

P.S. It’s free!

    Sue, I came here to ask, well, if you would be willing to be an interviewed author for my local Writer’s group sometime this year… πŸ™‚ Just started the group in November and currently looking at doing a guest local and/or self-published author every quarter – we can do the high-tech, skype interview, but frankly, I like to purchase a copy of which ever book the author is wishes promoted, email them a list of 10 ‘meet the author, discover their journey’ style questions – and present to the group – if the group approves the dev site, we will have a website and of course, we included your choice of profiles, site and/or purchase links for your works in both our group and district newsletter offerings – Thanks for considering! πŸ™‚

  26. Pinned your photo to my Blogs and Bloggers board (from this page) with the notice that you accept guest posts. Maybe a few writers among my followers will pop over to give it a look-see, and maybe a few will respond with a submission.
