Write For Us
Here at Hiemstra Gardens we prefer long term relationships to simple one time posts! We would love to have you write weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly on a topic that interests you!
We will of course still consider a one time post but it increases your chance of acceptance if we know in advance there is a possibility of working with you again!
What to Write About
We love it when someone submits a post on a topic they've been familiar with for years, however, so long as it interests you and you can write a high quality article on the topic, we will consider it. If you aren't sure what to write about, have no fear, I often have a list of post topics prepared and occasionally we feature a week or two of guest posts on particular topics so feel free to ask if their is an upcoming position available.
All posts must be original. The post becomes my post and is credited to you. DO NOT republish it anywhere else.
There is no specified length, as long as the article is informative, well written and interesting, it will be considered.
I encourage you to add links to other content on Hiemstra Gardens and around the web though only add links which are relevant and expand further on a topic. If you do not add additional links, that`s fine too, but note that they may still be added.
I prefer to use my own images however I ask that you include properly attributed photos in case I can`t find anything that fits.
Please include a photo and a short bio at the end of your post. It'd be great for the readers to know a little bit about you and where to find more of your related work!
I reserve the right to format and edit the article or suggest edits depending on the quality of the article.
If I turn down the article, I will be sure to respond with my decision. No matter what you will get a reply.
I'll be sure to tell you when your article is published and send you the link. I will do my part to ensure your article is read by as many people as possible and hope you will do the same by sharing it on Facebook, Twitter and any other social media sites you may be a part of.
Guest post inquiries are to be sent by email to Matthew Hiemstra with "Guest Post on Hiemstra Gardens" as the subject.
If you have your own blog or website or if you are a regular contributor to one, please include this information so I can be sure to check it out.
