Guest Blogging Guidelines at Honest College

Good news! We are now accepting guest posts in a formal manner. We’re excited to hear new voices while giving our readers a chance to become authors.

And even though it’s “formal” there are no “forms” to fill out – just you and your writing creativity at work!

Please take a minute to read the brief but important guidelines below.

(If you’ve already contacted us about a guest post submission, your email had been sitting in your rather large pile deep within our HQ. Sincere apologies and we will now be in touch with you shortly!)

Our Audience
At Honest College our audience are college students, parents, bloggers, writers, and a wide variety of education professionals.

Sending Your First Article:
Once you are ready to submit, please send your post as a Plain Text/HTML file to publishing@honestcollege.com. Word Docs are OK too just please limit the unnecessary formatting for our small editorial team to get your post ready 🙂

In your email PLEASE INCLUDE your desired WordPress username which will be your author name. It would also be great to know how you found us and if you’d like, a few links to your work on other websites or blogs.

Author Pages:
After your first article goes live you will receive an author page from which you can create your own custom bio.

Logging Into The Blog:
You will get your own Contributor account at our blog where you can edit your author page! For future posts, you can submit them through our Dashboard!

Links:
Obviously, many of us writers like linking out to other content. Links are fine. We do however ask that you only link to relevant, helpful articles if they are from other websites, and link to pages on this blog whenever possible.

Duplicate Content:
Absolutely a no. Please do not submit posts in which any part of them appear on other blogs or websites.

Is Your Post Ready?
If so, feel free to send over an entire post! It will speed things up!

Religious views
While we respect all religious views, this is a site isn’t a place where we put religious content. It is okay to mention such views if they support your main arguments.

Political views
While we respect all political views, this is a site isn’t a place where we put political content. It is okay to mention such views if they support your main arguments.

Scheduling:
We publish guest posts every Wednesday. You will receive a date to mark on your calendar!

Sharing:
Please share your live articles with your immediate social media audience! We’ll share it as well, but show your friends you know how to blog too!

Thank you again for your interest in writing for our growing blogs! Once you are ready to submit, please send your post as a Plain Text/HTML file to publishing@honestcollege.com. Looking forward to working with you!
