You will submit 2-5 post topic ideas based on the above criteria.
I would let you know my preferred topic from those choices. You would send me a draft which I would edit. In my editing process, I’m looking not only at grammar & readability but also the length of sentences. Long sentences don’t read well, especially on mobile. Thus I may break long sentences into two.
I will also likely link to 2 or more of my previous posts if they tie into the subject matter.
Over 60% of my audience is in the US, thus while you may not be, your post ideas need to be relevant to my audience. The UK and Canada make up the next 2 biggest audiences. Thus well over 80% of my audience is from one of those places.
So if your post includes links to things that are local to places other than those countries, I almost certainly will not use them unless you are paying for a sponsored post.
If you or your guest post author does not speak and write fluent English my blog is probably not a good fit as I don't have time for extensive editing to make a post flow naturally in English.
I want you to be proud of the finished product! But do expect there to be some changes to your original draft; this is a collaboration and ultimately representative of me since it appears on my site.
Once published, I very rarely go back and make changes to a post due to the author’s failure to properly review these guidelines, so please make sure to read this entire document thoroughly.
