Guest Travel Writers and Bloggers

My list of guest bloggers is growing. Feel free to send your content to me in a Microsoft Word Document if you’d like to contribute a blog post about your recent travels or an idea that’s related to travel. Read my guidelines below before you submit a guest post or query me with your idea. Don’t submit a post or ask me to review your guest post if you represent a company or any of its products, or affiliate programs.


  • All posts must be authored by the contributing guest blogger and relevant to travel.
  • No “stock” stories. Only one-of-a-kind stories will be accepted.
  • Content must be family-friendly and suitable for readers of all ages.
  • Don’t forget to include at least three photographs you’ve taken.
  • DO NOT include YOUR affiliate links in the body of your post. The links will be removed BEFORE I publish your article and the post will remain indefinitely without the affiliate links. A general rule of thumb is you must disclose your affiliate status when you are writing about or promoting a product or service.
  • Proofread your post (using a reputable grammar and spell-checker like Grammarly) before you submit it to me for consideration.
  • Include a title and subtitles and keep paragraphs relevant to the titles.
  • Research your keywords and include the keywords in the content so they occur naturally. Show the keywords you’ve selected to the bottom of your document.
  • Be sure to attribute all sources for the information you include in your story.
  • For more information, please message me using the form at the bottom of the page.
  • And stay tuned for my upcoming course that will give you the details you’ll need to prepare outstanding guest posts.
