Guest Blogging Guidelines

If you’d like to submit a guest blog post for MisticCafe, please read the guest blogging guidelines below. Please note: Guest blogging guidelines are subject to change. 

Guest blogging guidelines

1. Start by pitching ideas for guest posts.

2. Original posts are to be between 700 to 1,200 words. Going over by 100-200 words is okay. Posts will be checked for originality through Copyscape and other programs. No plagiarism is allowed. When sourcing material within a blog post, please give credit and provide a link to your source. Example, According to Amandah, owner of Savvy-Writer.com, “It’s important to cite sources used within a blog post. Remember when you had to write papers using the APAor MLA format and cited all sources?” Please be mindful of grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors. However, blog posts will be reviewed before posting.

3. Suggested topics include the following (open to suggestions):

  • Personal development
  • Career development or career change
  • Travel tips
  • Professional development tips
  • Pets
  • Personal finance
  • How to break the cycle of co-dependency
  • Alternatives to positive thinking and affirmations.
  • How to let go of people and situations that no longer serve you
  • How to say you’re sorry and mean it
  • How to forgive and mean it
  • How to meditate
  • How to create your own meditations
  • How to connect with the ‘right’ people
  • How to dissolve fear
  • How to develop your intuition

4. Please don’t stuff posts with keywords and phrases.

5. Please use a great headline! If you need help with headlines, download Jon Morrow’s Headline Hacks report. Also, I reserve the right to ‘tweak’ headlines.

6. If you incorporate links into posts, please make sure they work and limit to three good links. NO SALESY links!

7. You may put a link to your website and a short bio (250 words or less) within your post at the end of the blog post.

8. Submit posts in a .doc, .docx, rtf, or .txt file. Email submissions to misticcafe.amandahb@gmail.com. Or, copy and paste the text within the email. It’s up to you.

9. Photos are not mandatory to accompany a blog post. However, if you choose to use a photo in your post, please make sure you have the right to use it. Please adhere to copyright law and give credit to the artist/photographer. Visit StockExchangeiStock, and other websites for photos.

10. Posts shall be free of racism, sexism, religious intolerance, prejudice, etc. There’s enough of this online, and in life in general.

11. Please DO NOT STUFF posts with marketing and sales links.

12. Please wait six months to reprint a blog post to avoid duplicate content.

As the owner of MisticCafe.com, I reserve the right to edit posts for grammar and punctuation; your theme won’t be edited. Please submit posts via email to misticcafe.amandahb@gmail.com. Acceptable file extensions include .doc, .docx, and .txt. Again, you can always copy and paste text directly into the email.

Please include a current photo, link to your website and short bio in your email. I’ll do my best to notify you when your blog post has posted; otherwise, please check MisticCafe. I look forward to hearing from you.
