I Want You

I have something cool planned that I hope y’all will enjoy. Take a guess at what it might be. No? Don’t feel like guessing? Fine. I’ll just have to ruin the suspense. A week of guest posts! I’ve been thinking about this for some time now and I figure why not go ahead and do it. Just last week I had my second ever guest post on here and I think several of my readers liked it. Let’s get some important stuff out of the way.

I’m looking at the final week of February to post these. The 23rd-27th. And I’m not giving any stipulations besides what follows:

  • No lists.
  • No excerpts from your work.
  • No self promotion. (this isn’t the time to promote your new book)
  • Must go along with the overall bookish/writing theme of my blog.

That’s it! Of course, I’ll have the final say as to whether or not I decide to publish your post, but I don’t think my little instructions are very limiting. And if you’re somewhat new to my blog, then I’d suggest scrolling through my recent posts to see what I typically post. I’m not saying to copy anything, but at least you can get an idea of what works and what doesn’t.

There’s one last thing I want to mention. I said that I’m looking to post five guest posts, right? Well I definitely already have more than five people in mind who I think would have something great to post on here. It’ll be up to them to decide if this is something they might want to participate in. Not saying I’m totally biased, but I am a little.

So, now you’re probably wondering what exactly you have to do, right? Well it’s easy. Just tell me you’re interested and I’ll send you an invite to post on my blog. I WILL NOT SEND OUT MORE THAN FIVE INVITES AT A TIME. Which means that five people will have the opportunity to write a draft, if someone decides to waste time, then I’ll just remove their ability to do so.

And I’ll be notifying the guest bloggers at least a day before the post is published.

  4. I think it would be fun to do another guest post, but I won’t be greedy. I know there are a lot of other people much more talented than I. If you want me to, I’d love to contribute again. If not, I look forward to reading all the other posts! Great idea you’ve had!

  9. John, I could be interested in a partnering project and/or guest blog. It looks like we’re about in the same ballpark of followers.

    • Perfect. I’ll send you the email invite sometime today and you can write about whatever you want (books/writing-related). I still have never guest posted on another blog, so I’d of course be interested in doing so on yours if you’d want. Just let me know.

  10. I am very interested! I think this is a wonderful idea. Sometimes blogging can feel like working in a bubble so this kind of interactive posting is fabulous. As some others have already mentioned, I’d be happy to have you as a guest as well!
