Guest Post and Tutorial Guide Lines
We are accepting guest posts on our blog and tutorials for the craft sections. Collaborate with Let’s Create.
Guest Posts on our Blog
Please carefully read the recommendations below, BUT do not stress these are guidelines not hard rules.
100% exclusive is preferred.
Posts that have been published before – Headings and titles MUST be different from previous publishing. Change the keywords. Make the first paragraph different. Try and reword some of the content as well. Being a creative person this should not be too difficult.
Check the page for examples of suitable topics – There are many more topics to be written, contact us with your ideas.
It is exciting to use your own love of craft to ignite a passion and confidence in someone else to start a journey into crafts.
Writing Guide Lines
I appreciate that much of this is basic and nothing new, but reminders never go astray.
Keep a person or an age group in mind while you are writing.
Make it clear from the start what your project or subject is.
Unfold it in a logical order.
Use headings throughout the post. Make use of keywords where possible.
Have a conclusion that sums up the total.
Posts should aim for a minimum of 400 words.
All graphics should be original or Creative Commons CC0, or licensed for use with no Copyright restrictions. Image no larger than 700×700 pixels.
Links – No links in the body of the post. No selling pitches.
You may have four links in the author bio.
We want to know about you as well as a headshot around 250 x 250. Make it four or five lines long and you can have four links, to your site or social media or shops.
In addition to the above, when your post is published we want you to let your followers know that you have a guest post published. Promote it in your usual places, encourage your followers to support you and to add comments to your post.
Be available to answer comments and questions about your post.
