At TravelersPress we’re always open to new contributors. If you are interested in writing for us, please get in touch. You can email article submissions to email@example.com, or contact us if you have questions about particular topics that you might want to cover. Guest authors are always credited, and you can link to your own website or blog from your author bio that will be shown at the end of the post. Please include your author bio when submitting a post.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- We don’t publish guest posts that are little more than advertisements for a product, company, or website. We love articles that provide new and relevant content to our readers, and you are welcome to promote your own product, company, or website in the author bio.
- We only publish content that is exclusive to our site. If you have published an article on another website we will not publish it here.
- Our audience is primarily based in the United States, although we have readers all around the world. You are welcome to write about destinations and events from all over the world, but please keep in mind that our audience is mostly-based in the U.S and approach the writing accordingly.
- Links to your site within the article body are sometimes permitted and sometimes are not permitted. We evaluate each link to determine if it seems natural or not. If the link is something that we would include if we were writing the article ourselves and if it is beneficial to those reading the post, we will keep it in the article. If the link is not something that we would include if we were writing the post, or if it offers little added value to readers, we will not include it in the article. If there are any links that need to be removed from your article we will notify you prior to publishing the post, so you can decide if you still want it to be published.
- Photos and images can be included in your post, but you must include a link to show where you found the image. This is to avoid possible copyright infringement. We need to verify the license of the photo to see if it allows for our usage. Many bloggers do a Google image search when they are looking for photos to use. In most cases this is copyright infringement because the majority of photos are not licensed for use. We want to respect the rights of photographers, so we make every effort to avoid infringing on their rights. If you want to use photos that you have taken during your own travels, that is fine. If your post submission does not include any photos we will probably try to find some that can be used.
