Guest Blogging Guidelines

If you have blogging skills and would like to share your expertise in WordPress or web design/development, consider becoming a guest blogger on this website.

Successful guest blog articles will be comprehensive, action-oriented, how-to style posts that teach our readers about a particular aspect of content marketing, copywriting or web design/development.

How to submit

Please email your completed article to cole [at] colewiebe [dot] com. If your proposed article meets our editorial standards and aligns with our content strategy, we will respond to let you know when your article will be published.

Guest blogging requirements

Your article must:

  1. be well-written and of high quality.
  2. be submitted in .txt or .md (Markdown) format.
  3. reflect the writing style and tone of the Cole Wiebe blog.
  4. avoid self/brand promotion of any kind within the article, although you can link to a product or service our readers may find extremely valuable.
  5. include a short 1 to 2 sentence bio, that may include a 1 anchor text link to your own website.
  6. include a photo author avatar 80×80 or larger.
  7. adhere to Google’s guidelines for guest blogging and their Webmaster Guidelines.
  8. include proper attribution of quotations, data or other third-party content referenced in your article.
  9. include a PDF copy of the stock photo purchase invoice by which you secured the rights to use any photo(s) you include with your article, or the URL where a free use image was sourced.

You must affirm that you will not publish the article you submit on your own blog, or anywhere else on the internet. You are more than welcome to link to the article, however, once it has been posted. In fact, the more you promote the post on your site and in social channels, the more likely we are to publish future articles from you.

If you’re interested in building the online authority of your brand and yourself is a writer, our blog could be a good fit for you. Your post must deliver genuine value for our website and our audience. Low value content hurts the relevancy of our website and its search engine positioning. If you’re a ‘content spammer’, who writes and distributes irrelevant ‘fluff’ articles, to pick up a fee for marketing backlinks placed, or an affiliate commission, this is not the site for you.

We reserve the right to edit and adapt your guest blog content as we see fit.
