I’m so excited that you’re interested in contributing to The Blue Honor Blog! Please read the Submission Guidelines carefully.
Guest bloggers should submit final works for publication. I reserve the right to do editing for clarity and grammar. If using pictures (I will select pictures if none are submitted, or I find the images out of context and/or offensive), please link the source of the photo at the end of the article (it’s best to use free image sources so you don’t have to wait around for artist permissions and miss your chance – try Pixabay and Unsplash) and permission proof from artist. Your article should be no more than 1 – 2 pages (500-700 words?) in length. It should be coherent and informative. It is considered a news item and will adhere to the ethics and standards of the blog. Excessive profanity will be edited out, or cause a rejection of the piece, but feel free to use some as appropriate. Submissions need to appeal to a large audience.
APA Style should be used in citations, though I’m not a stickler on the formatting of your citations, just be sure to cite when quoting text directly, otherwise it’s plagiarism–maintain your integrity at all times. It’s a fun blog, but professional.
If you know of someone who would love to contribute, don’t hesitate to let them know about the blog. How do you get in touch with me? Use my contact form. Please subscribe to the blog to improve your chances. Suggestions for features can also be submitted via the contact form.
If you are rejected, accepted, edited, altered or ignored – no flaming me, other bloggers, or artists. Maintaining civility is a must in this profession. You don’t want to burn bridges, or get a reputation for being too difficult to work with. After all, this is about you speaking to the world and letting them know you’re out there. We both want that to be a good experience.
If your piece is accepted, you may republish it anywhere you wish from the blog post page. I appreciate links to my blog on your sites and pages. I retain the right to republish (share) the work on social media, my website, deviantArt and other venues giving the author full credit.
I am not responsible for revenue lost/gained from this agreement. There is no payment for blog submissions currently. I am not being paid to run the site or edit work.
Guest blogs appear weekly on Wednesdays. Include a photo of yourself and a short bio (about 2-3 lines) with links to your website and/or books.
