BEFORE you submit your post, please read our contributor guidelines:

  1. Submission of your guest post does not guarantee publication. Your submission will be reviewed and if it will benefit Making Lemonade’s readers, it is likely to be published.
  2. Links back to your own blog or site should be modest and be relevant and valid to your post, i.e. don’t link for the sake of linking! If you include too many links, chances are low it will be published. Links deemed to be irrelevant to the main idea of your post will be removed without notice.
  3. Word count: 750 – 1,000 words is preferred. The maximum word count is 1,500.
  4. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate a genuine interest in Making Lemonade with Krista Goncalves (KristaGoncalves.com) as a reader, follower or collaborator.
  5. Submissions with a “visit my site” or “check out my product” vibe will not be accepted. Submissions which are overtly PR- or SEO-related will also not be accepted.
  6. Posts must be high-quality, original content and not published anywhere else online or in print. Any content, deemed as “duplicate” within the post must be clearly indicated and proper credit or reference given.
  7. Posts end with a brief author’s bio that links to a website + one social account of the author’s choice. The author’s bio photo should be one used on your website or social accounts and of high-resolution.
  8. Posts with bullet points or “listicles” are the most popular as these keep articles to-the-point and easy to read. Review past posts to make sure yours is of a similar style and formatting to what’s already been published.
  9. Do NOT send us your finished article! Please use our CONTACT US form, and include your working title/heading, the main idea and a brief outline only.
  10. Guest article writing is not compensated.
