Quality Guidelines We are looking for posts that teach and give value to our readers. We would like to avoid posts on topics that have been covered many times over. We are not looking for rehashed posts from other blogs. Here is the ultimate guideline: “A Survival Grit post should make our readers want to stop what they are doing, print out the article and spend the day applying what they have learned to their skill sets or interests.” To put it succinctly: Your post should be inspiring! Guest posting rules: 1. You can’t advertise your product, business or service within your guest post. This means do not mention your company, or link to it, or link to your company’s blog within the guest post. The point of guest posting is to show that you are a thought and skill set leader. Your only goal should be to educate our readers on a topic that helps them out. 2. You may not link to any of your online properties within the main body of your guest post. Our readers WILL pick this up as a subliminal advertisement and simply not like your post. They won’t share it. 3. You may include a bio/signature section at the end of your post with links back to your site or related content and/or social media profile. 4. Do not include screenshots that brand your own product or online properties. How To Submit A Guest Post You don’t have to write your guest post in its entirety before you submit it to us. Simply send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org and include in your email: Post links to content you have written 3 to 5 headlines that you think Survival Grit readers would love AND are based around your areas of expertise Thank you again for your interest and we look forward to receiving your blog topic ideas.
