Want to share your life moments with our readers? We’re always looking for posts that provide an unique and useful perspective over life, events and personal matters. Feel free to contribute on any topic you like.
Guest Post Guidelines
Headline: Be sure to include a headline / post title.
Length: We don’t impose a minimum length for your post, the story is more important than length.
Content: Write with the reader in mind. Assume the reader is busy and has a short attention span. Start with a brief set-up that hooks the reader. Then organize the rest in segments. Short paragraphs and eventually headings within the article make it easier to read.
Previously published: Be sure to let us know if the story has been published or submitted elsewhere. Don’t worry, we don’t have a problem with that. If you previously published your post on your own blog, on LinkedIn or any other website we will use the rel=”canonical” tag to indicate Google and other search engines we publish a piece of content that was previously published somewhere else and of course, to reference that source.
Authorship: Be sure to include an author bio, two to three sentences. If you’re not the author, tell us who’s the author those post you’re recommending and your relationship to the author.
Credit: We respect individual work and if your story is derivative of someone else’s work, feel free to give them credit. The same applies to images, see below.
Images: It’s great to include images to illustrate the points in your story. But please only include your own images, images that you have rights to or that are available under creative commons license. Be sure to include image credits and links. Do not include images to which you have not secured the rights. If you are using your own images, note that. If you use an image from a photo licensing service like AP, Getty, or Shutterstock, note the source and include the name and email address of your representative so we can verify that you have rights to the image. You are solely responsible for obtaining these rights and by submitting a post, you represent and warrant to LifeIsAnEpisode that you have done so. If you don’t provide images we will publish one based on our understanding of your story and our picture library.
Editing: We reserve the right to edit the article to a greater or lesser extent, including changes in the text, subheads and headline, to improve readability and maximize the web traffic. Our policy is to give guest post authors a chance to review our edits before posting when possible, but we retain final editorial control.
Payment: We don’t pay for guest posts.
Self-promotion: Authors have the chance of a link back to their own personal blogs. So you are free to add the URL of your personal blog. Also include links to your social media profile pages. Any other backlinks within the post are subject to our consideration. See the below section Vendor Sponsored Posts for more details.
Vendor Sponsored Posts
If you’re a company looking to write about a problem for which your company offers a solution or about any area in which you have a vested interest, your story would qualify as a sponsored post rather than a guest post. To speak to us about sponsored post opportunities, please contact sp [@] lifeisanepisode [.] com
Accepting Guest Posts
We’ll respond as quickly as we can to your submission, but due to time constraints, we aren’t always able to provide feedback on rejected stories. We usually publish the accepted posts within three business days. If you don’t hear from us in that time, please assume that we will not publish your post.
After you get published on LifeIsAnEpisode.com the future of our collaboration depends on you. Sending us more stories will make you a constant contributor and an author on this website. If you find it relevant and useful, feel free to contribute more.
