Guest Blogging Opportunities for You

November 21, 2012

When reader Michelle left a comment on last week’s post about the benefits of guest blogging, it gave me an idea.

Some of you are looking for guest posting opportunities, while others are looking to run quality posts on your blog. So why not bring both sides together to help us all out?

How you'll feel when you make the right blogging connection.

How you’ll feel when you make the right blogging connection.

In the comments, let us know whether you fall into either camp. If you’re looking for guest blogging opportunities, what topics are you qualified to write about? If you’re eager to host writers on your blog, what types of posts are you looking for?

Be sure to leave your email, Twitter handle or blog URL so we can easily find you!

Look forward to seeing what kinds of connections we can make here!

      I’m looking for both, actually. I’m launching a new website on long distance relationships in January and looking for good guest bloggers. I’m also keeping an eye out for opportunities to guest post about self-publishing or my recently published memoir, Love At The Speed Of Email. Email: Twitter: lmwriting and talkLDR. Personal blog:

      • Hi Lisa,

        I read and reviewed your memoir on my blog a few months ago. I’d love to contribute to your new website. I was in a long distance relationship for 3 1/2 years with a man I met while studying abroad in London. The long distance part wasn’t supposed to last that long, but the economy collapsed just before I graduated and we couldn’t get jobs in the same country. Then a month after I followed him to Hong Kong his company sent him back to London for a year. (We’re engaged and living in the same country now, so all is well).

        I’ll send you an email.


      • Hi Lisa,

        Similar story to Shannon for me as well. I met my husband while being at Georgia Tech for my Master’s, but couldn’t find funding for my PhD as the crisis had just hit, and then found my dream research project in Delft University of Technology (Holland). We’re still long-distance (I’m wrapping up my PhD and he found a job in Pittsburgh), but that didn’t prevent us from getting married last summer. I’d love to share what made our love grow stronger, even while being apart.

        I’ll ping you on Twitter.

      • Sharon says:

        If any of those long distance romances blossom into marriage I would love to feature the love story on!!! I think this could be an amazing additional, who doesn’t love to hear about a happy ending??? 😉

      • frenchadele says:

        Hi Lisa, I may have something interesting to share on your blog about LDRs. I am currently in a long-distance relationship with a Frenchman, a worthy Frenchman. I met him whilst he was in working my dusty outback Australian town, just before his working holiday visa expired. He returned to France but before he did, we decided there was a future for us and eight months later, followed him to France. I have now been in France for five months, returning in one month left to Australia and reopen the long-distance book again! I will send you an email.
        You can peruse my blog, at and I will send you an email!

    • I’m always looking for quality guest posters! 🙂

    • Amy says:

      Lexi, I love your blog and your newsletter! Are you aware of guest blogging opportunities or resources for someone just getting started?

    • I would love to do this swap! I can write on a variety of topics including art history, design, writing(magazine, freelance, etc.), internships, college admissions, dog ownership. I also have general editorial experience at a magazine.

      I would love guest bloggers for Runs With Markers. Anything that can safely fall into the categories of Art, Home, Fashion, Books, or Writing is fair game.

      Great idea!

    • Kevin Cole says:

      I’m definitely interested in guest posting as well as having some guest posters on my site.
      I’m all about owning life personally and professionally and would love to share a unique perspective for my blog and yours. : )

      • Liz says:

        Hey Kevin!
        I think that you and I have a lot in common with our blogs. We should connect.

        I don’t take blog posts, but I think we can be useful to each other. Let me know what you think.


    • Brad Veitch says:

      Great idea, Alexis! Very positive way to support bloggers and especially the new/newer/newest bloggers among us! When my blog goes, I’ll be back to check in with you.

    • Great idea, Alexis!

      I am a freelance blogger and specialize in the topics of lifestyle design, following your passion, work (how to survive it and to how work for yourself), and personal finance. You can check out some of my regular positions here for a sample of my work:

    • Victoria says:

      Hi Alexis! This is a great idea. I am interesting in being a guest blogger. I blog about travel memoir writing, photography, journaling as a practice for personal/professional development and creative living.

      In a recent blog post, I share an except from a work in progress.


    • Louis Burklow says:

      Thanks for this idea, Lexi. I’d like to write some guest posts. I have a small blog for now and I’m trying to figure out ways to get people to read it (non-spammers, that is). Jobwise, I’ve worked for several years for law firms and currently for a background investigation company. I was a history major in college and am strong in that subject and applying it to current events. I also have taken several creative writing courses, especially screenwriting, and I follow news on movies, television and book publishing. I’m fascinated with stories looking at how traditional media must change due to the digital revolution and the challenge of the Internet. I’m also cooking for myself more and can write about kitchen experiments/disasters.

    • Dana Sitar says:

      Awesome idea, Lexi! Thanks 🙂

      I’m always looking for both, as well. I welcome guests to DIY Writing to cover writing, freelancing, solo/entrepreneurship, following your dreams, and work/lifestyle design. See past guests here:

      I can offer posts for your blog on freelance writing, work/lifestyle design, following your dreams, blogging, and self-publishing. Here’s a list of a few recent guest posts I’ve written:

      Get in touch via Twitter ( or email: dmsitar(at)

    • Mark Bowness says:

      Hey guys, I thought I would throw my offer in. I am always looking for guest posters on the subject of ‘Life Change’ for my site and always value the opportunity to blog elsewhere. You can find me on – look forward to connecting!

    • Dee Dee says:

      I love this!

      I’m always looking for guest bloggers – specifically for people willing to talk about what makes their relationships work (or not) and how they define happiness, especially if they find happiness in things that most of us may not relate to in an easy way.

      And, Lisa, I love the idea of your blog about long-distance relationships. I’ve had two serious long-distance relationships. Once by choice and once as a military wife. There is a lot to be learned from having to find new and improved ways to communicate with someone you love!

    • Suzi says:

      Alexis, thanks so much for opening up new opportunities for connecting the dots between all of us!

      I am always looking for guest blog opportunities! All my published blogs posts can be found on my blog, categorized under “Stories Circulating About”. I am a freelance lifestyle writer and cover just about any topic from sports, exercise, healthy living, care giving, cooking….. the list goes on.

      Thanks again Alexis!

    • Cheryl says:

      I love this idea. I have a small blog. I am interested in a guest blogger. My blog is about real life–the beautiful, ugly, awkward, and funny. Life happens in all those categories and more. The blog focuses on family, health, faith, food, and frugal living as it is lived out in life.
      I am interested in guest blogging as well. I write about family, healthy living…(in the style of my blog).

    • Tehila says:

      I would love to write a guest post for someone out there!

      My blog is pretty new, and is essentially designed to encourage women. I mainly write for Christian women, exhorting them to abide in God and His Word, but also have many ideas for more general posts for women in general.

      An example of this would be the following blog post that I recently published:

      Thanks, Alexis, for this great opportunity!

    • Shawndra says:

      I’m seeking guest blogging opportunities about using Kickstarter, participating in NaNaWriMo, utilizing social media locally, writing a novel in ten days or becoming a freelancer and maximizing productivity. Thanks!

    • Alexis L says:

      I’m happy to write a guest blog for anyone out there, and I’d be delighted to have someone contribute a post to my blog,

      I write about the books I love, including classic literature, science fiction, and fantasy. I also write about my experiences as a symphony musician and music teacher (violin and viola). I’m currently writing a YA fantasy novel, and I’ve also written several reader’s theater plays for young adults.

    • Lexi, Thanks for jumping on my idea and making this an official exchange!

      I’m especially interested in finding guest bloggers who can add to the conversation on my blog, Polliwog on Safari. I am also interested in a limited amount of guest blogging.

      My blog focuses on nature and culture and the intersection of the two. I post “Travel Tuesdays,” “Wordless Wednesday,” and Friday generally focuses on activities to do with kids in nature. My primary audience is parents, teachers, homeschoolers and unschoolers, though I also have many fellow KidLit writers who follow. The bulk of my readers are from the US, though I also have regular readers from India, France, the Philippines, Morocco, and the UK.

    • Anne Belov says:

      Can I throw my hat (or maybe a cuppycake) into the ring? I am a painter, writer, cartoonist and aspiring children’s writer/illustrator. I am interesting in blogging about the creative process, humor, and of course, panda satire. I recently self published the first book of my cartoons, called The Panda Chronicles Book 1: Your Brain on Pandas. I also write for the Whidbey Life Magazine You can find me at or email me at
      If there are other cartoon bloggers who would like to do an occasional guest post I am open to that.

      • Hi Anna,

    • Emma says:

      Hi There,

      great idea 🙂 I am a full time guest blogger and writer and so am able to guest post about numerous subjects ( it scares me who much I know about PPI these days…) and I have recently started my own guest posting blog for those finding it hard to get opportunities due to the SEO stats nazi’s :

      and I have just started my very own little blog which I am really getting into:

      I love to write and am always open to hearing from people and providing posts both in a professional and personal sense. My email is I can send extensive examples of my work etc 🙂


    • I am in both camps! I’m looking to do guest blogs (as you know!) on taking kids on missions trips but also can write about traveling and kids and discipleship issues, as that’s my job. I am starting to focus my blog on living fearlessly, so I am looking for stories of people conquering their fears or related ideas.

    • Dan Ortiz says:

      Anyone interested in dog blogging can post to my new site: I would also love to guest blog about dogs, photography, or the Apple/Macintosh world (strange combination, I know).

    • Kevin Kermes says:

      I too am looking for both. My blog, Career Attraction, focuses on better career management by identifying your target audience, tightening up your message and then creating a sustainable campaign. The net: opportunities coming inbound versus chasing after them. Lately, I’ve taken a closer look at social norm, the psychology behind how we interact and teaching readers to leverage that to their benefit.

      Thanks for making this happen, Lexi!


    • Thank you so much for this idea, Alexis!

      I’m looking for guest bloggers for my research / academic blog : I’m planning to do a series in which I invite writers from different niches to share their thoughts and ideas with my audience of PhD students and early career researchers. Contributions on productivity, time management, work/life balance, health, creativity and civil engineering are all welcome (plus I’m open for suggestions).

      At the same time, I’m also looking for guest blogging opportunities. Some topics I enjoy writing about: civil engineering topics, writing, productivity, health, study hacks, higher education, feminism, living abroad, bands/new CD releases (I’m a staff writer at ) and smart spending.

      You can get in touch with me through e-mail , via or @evalantsoght

    • Kathleen says:

      Alexis, your site is a goldmine of advice and inspiration!

      After writing numerous travel articles and guides and publishing them traditionally, I’m just starting to blog. I haven’t found a comfortable groove yet, and I don’t know if I’ll include guest posts, but if you ever need a post or a quote/interview on guidebook publishing, Southwest travel, or yoga, please feel free to ask!

      Thanks for this invitation–it’s terrifically inspiring to see what others are creating on their blogs!

    • Missy says:
