We’re always looking for guest bloggers! Want to write about travel, budgeting, backpacking, and exotic places? Sounds awesome! Shoot us a message with your idea for a post. You can write just once, or on a regular basis if you like.
All submissions (and request for submissions) must follow the guidelines! Read this or your message will be ignored.
- 800 word minimum
- No writers that have been “hired” by a company to spread their links around the web
- No links in your post unless it is absolutely relevant to the article
- Any links in the article or your by-line must be to a travel-related site
We only accept guest blog posts from actual travel bloggers. If you write for, or represent, a company that provides travel services or products, then we will not accept nor consider your request for a guest post. Instead, you should consider our advertising packages. If you are a travel blogger, there is a 99% chance that your guest post will be accepted. If you are a company (or representative of a company) looking for free links, your email will be ignored.
If you have an idea for a post, send us a message about it before sending the actual article. We will not accept posts that are an advertisement or advertorial. We will also not accept posts from non-travel related companies and websites. Make sure your include your website in your request.
Ideally, all posts should be at least 800 words in length. We have no set maximum length, but shorter posts are not accepted. Quality is better than quantity, but too little quantity is just bad.
If you wish to submit photos, please note that all photos must have proper copyright and/or creative commons permissions, credits, and links where required.
Your post should be informative and entertaining to the readers, and then it will be fine to briefly mention your travel blog/website in the article or by-line. Obvious advertisements or links to non-travel related sites will not be considered for guest posts. Include your website in your initial request.
All guest posts should be unique and not found anywhere else on the web.
We also ask that authors include a few sentences about themselves for the by-line. A gravatar-enabled email address is also good to have for the photo. Your email address will not be shown.
If you just want to submit an article that contains a large amount of photos with less text (a photo essay or something similar) then you may ignore the 800 word minimum (but not the other requirements). You don’t have go to the trouble of writing an entire post. Just tell us a little about the photos. We’ll link back to your travel blog, of course.
In summary, if you want to write a post, send us a message with the following information:
- A summary of the post you’ve written, or plan to write.
- Your website. If it’s not travel related, don’t waste your time. If you don’t include your website, your message will be ignored.
- Let us know if you have related photos, but don’t send them yet.
