You Are Invited to Write for My Blog

Today, I am celebrating the 100th post on my blog!   This has been a goal of mine to reach 100 posts.  My thinking was that I couldn’t consider myself a “real” blogger unless I had 100 posts. Since I am now a “real” blogger, I’m inviting you to my party!  :)

You are invited to write for my blog

Well, I’m not really having a party, but I am inviting bloggers to write guest posts on my blog. :) So, effective immediately, I am accepting guest posts!  I plan to publish one to two guest posts per week.  These posts will normally appear on the weekend, but occasionally they may appear during the week.  Below are details about the process.

What kind of content do I accept?

Anything that is beneficial to my readers is good content for a guest post here.  The following are types of content that will be beneficial to my readers:

Please do not include any advertisement, or anything that would be the equivalent of a sponsored post.  If you are interested in advertising on my site, you can get more info on my advertising page.

Post Guidelines

  1. Your post must be original and have never been posted on the Internet or in print.
  2. You agree not to publish your post anywhere else, including your own blog or Web site.  You may post a brief “teaser” or summary of your post on your site with a link to the post.  I highly recommend this.
  3. Your post must include your byline, with up to three links (links are optional):  one link to your blog or web site, one link to your bio or About page, and one to your Twitter profile.
  4. Your post should be at least 400 words, and no more than 800 words.

Tips for Successful Guest Posting

Below are some helpful links to help you get the most benefit from your guest post:

Editing Guidelines

  • If necessary, I may edit your post for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.  If I make major changes (which I doubt will be needed), I will email the post back to you for review and approval before posting.
  • I may provide a short intro or conclusion to your post to share why I think your post is important. My intro or conclusion will be separated from yours, so the readers will know that they are my thoughts, and not yours.

Submission Guidelines

If your post meets the above guidelines you can email it to me at jackie [at] jackiebledsoejr [dot] com. I will be checking submissions at least once per week.  Your submissions must include the following:

  • Please make the subject of your email as follows: Guest Post Submission – Your Name
  • Please include a one to three-sentence byline that includes what you do, your blog address, your Twitter username, and your Facebook profile/page address.
  • Please include how many readers, followers, and fans you have: number of blog readers (email and RSS), Twitter followers, and Facebook fans.
  • Please confirm that you will engage with my readers in the comments to your post.  This is very important, and will be very beneficial to you.
  • Please include your post in the body of the email.  DO NOT include it as an attachment to your email.


I am not obligated to approve or publish your guest post.  If I reject your post, I will notify you, and you will be free to do what you want with the post.  This includes publishing it elsewhere on the Web or in print.



Please note: I reserve the right to delete comments that are offensive or off-topic.

  1. Congratulations! The state of mind when you think of yourself as a “real” blogger changes everything! This week I felt like a “real” blogger when I changed from Blogger to WordPress.

    In that, I’m sending you an e-mail…

    • Thanks Jeff! Welcome to WordPress…it is fun and even manageable for non-tech folk like me! :)

      Got your email and I like! You should have something in our inbox from me.

  2. Congratulations on your 100th post. That’s a LOT of rules for a guest post, especially the “must never have been posted on the internet and can’t be posted anywhere else.” What kind of reach do you have? Most entrepreneurs send copies or similar posts, unless the person is getting 100,000 or more views a month.

    • Thanks for your feedback Michelle. It is a nice list of rules. :)

      My hopes are that when someone guest posts here, that my readers get fresh/new content and not recycled content. I kind of view guest blogging as a gift to the readers of that particular blog. When people receive gifts, I think most prefer something new, versus something old that has been repackaged.
      I’m thinking that is doable for most bloggers. To come up with a fresh new post (to give to new readers) vs. copy and pasting something they (or someone else) has already posted. At least that is my hope. I’ll see how it goes. I’m optimistic about it. :)

      My reach is definitely not 100k, as a new blogger with just 100 posts. But it is steadily growing.

  3. Jackie,
    Congratulations on #100. I may just submit something. Perhaps you can guest for me as well.
    Peace and good.

  4. Congratulations to 100 posts. I’m so glad that we meet at UBC. Its great to have a fellow blogger who believes the same as I do and wants to share it with the world.

  5. CONGRATS! I remember having a giveaway for the 100th post of mine and it was fun! Wish I could join you in guest posting and will give it much thought! I would love for you to return the favor if I did. I tweeted and G+ your blog entry and LIKED your page! Nice to meet you Jackie.
