Announcing the Bonfire Guest Post Swap!

Guest posting is a rewarding experience for a lot of reasons, but sometimes finding blogs that accept posts in your niche is very time consuming.

For that reason, I've created an open spreadsheet on Google Docs for Bonfire members to list guest posting opportunities on their blogs. I've filled out the first entry so you can see how it works.

Those looking for guest posting venues can quickly scan the list for blogs in relevant topics/niches, and then get in touch with the blog owner to sort out the details or submit a post for consideration.

Please, only submit your site information if you are currently accepting guest post submissions.


Guest Post Authors:

  • Blog owners still reserve the right to reject submissions. This is not a guarantee that anything you propose will be published.
  • Read the guest post guidelines page (if applicable) before submitting your post.
  • Be courteous and respectful. Offer guest posts that are valuable to your host's audience, and refrain from submitting posts with excessive links or copy that is sales-y.

Guest Post Venue Owners:

  • Under "Prefered Contact Method" please leave an email address, a link to your website's contact form, or a link to your profile page. The goal is to make it easier for others to get in touch and avoid the need to chase down your contact info.

I think this is a great idea.  My Artsy Admin site is more of a static website rather than blog.  I offer useful resources and it is more of an about me business offerings.

However I just started a new blog called VimLife that is about positive energy, and creativity.  My alter ego :)

I would welcome anyone interested in doing a guest post, and would reciprocate if asked.

Let me know if you want me to add VimLife to spreadsheet or if you want to keep it business related. 

Thanks.  Shelley

Hi Shelley,

All member blogs are welcome regardless of their focus. In fact the more diverse the selection, the better. Please feel free to add VimLife to the spreadsheet.

Thanks for organizing this Emily, what a fantastic idea!

Emily, you rocked this-thanks.  Not only am I thrilled to get guest post, I actually have guidelines now!  Let the posting commence! lol

That's great, Dina! It might take me a while, but I hope to be able to write something for each site that's added. I'm also looking forward to getting submissions for Suess's Pieces! :)

Emily,  I had to write my own guidelines too.

Comment by Emily Suess on February 27, 2012 at 7:43pm

Guidelines are great -- they can even help you pick up some search traffic for people looking for guest posting opportunities. :)

Will this spreadsheet remain on the site or is this a limited time offer? I'm not currently ready to take advantage of this fabulous resource, but in a couple months I'll have things ready.

Comment by Emily Suess on February 28, 2012 at 1:22pm

Great question, Tammy. The spreadsheet will remain available indefinitely. So you can add and remove your listing whenever you want. I would just suggest bookmark it for future reference!
