So, you want to be a guest blogger with Blufashion? First things first.
We’re swamped with emails from “Joe Schmo,” who wants to write for us. The obvious form letter telling us how *amazing* the content is on “the site.” It’s so flattering to hear how their article will fit in our “niche” perfectly. <cough, cough>
At Blufashion, we are committed to providing our audience with accurate, insightful, and trendy content that resonates with the dynamic world of fashion. Our editorial process is meticulous and involves thorough fact-checking by a fashion expert to ensure the authenticity and reliability of the information we provide. The following guidelines have been crafted to uphold the quality and integrity of the content on our platform. Adherence to these guidelines is imperative for all our writers and contributors.
If you found us on a “accepts guest posts” or “Write For Us Fashion” website, we’re probably not interested in getting to know you. Don’t take it personally, though; we’re just not interested in getting involved in link circles, no matter what you think you can promise in return.
If you already blog and have a presence in the fashion/beauty/health/lifestyle world, let’s talk. If you are against tanning and want to educate our readers on what you know, let’s talk. We really would love to have you. Read below for our guest blogger guidelines.
Content Quality and Authenticity:
- Originality: All content submitted must be unique and original. It should not have been published elsewhere, online or in print.
- Expert Verification: Ensure that all facts, figures, and statements are accurate and verifiable. Our fashion expert will review and fact-check the content to ensure it meets the industry standards.
- Relevance: The content should be relevant to the current fashion trends, news, or insights and resonate with our audience.
- Depth of Information: Articles should provide a comprehensive understanding of the topic with a well-rounded perspective.
Writing Style and Format:
- Tone: Maintain a friendly, engaging, and professional tone throughout the content.
- Clarity: Ensure that your writing is clear, concise, and free from jargon.
- Headings and Subheadings: Use headings and subheadings to structure the content logically and make it easy to navigate.
- SEO Best Practices: Incorporate relevant keywords naturally within the content and follow SEO best practices to enhance visibility.
Articles We Accept:
- Fashion & Beauty topics – We accept high-quality articles on topics related to fashion, sun safety, wedding, hair, nails, skincare, makeup, lifestyle, and all other related topics.
- Blog Post Ideas For Jewelry – We accept high-quality articles on topics related to engagement rings, antique jewelry, body jewelry, diamonds, or jewelry trend articles.
How to Submit a Guest Article
- Send your article by email to support [at] blufashion.com.
- Attach the article in a Word document or Google Doc.
- Attach images separately with the email. (Our template needs images that are 800px wide or higher.) We have a bank of stock photos available to us, but we love images taken personally by our guest bloggers. No image isn’t a deal-breaker, but if you have one, even if you’re not sure if we’ll like it, send it.
- Revisions: Be open to feedback and make necessary revisions as suggested by our editorial team and fashion expert.
- Images: High-quality, relevant images should accompany the article. Ensure you have the rights to use the images or use royalty-free images.
- Captions and Credits: Provide captions and proper credits for all visuals included in the article.
- Citation: Cite your sources accurately and provide links to the references where necessary.
- Up-to-date Sources: Ensure that your references are recent and reputable.
If you have a creative idea for ad placement, please feel free to contact us. Creative ideas are always welcome.
Guest post articles are scheduled for publishing on weekends only. However, fast-track options are available.
We reserve the right to edit articles for our readers, but we don’t have time to spend editing your work. If it needs a lot of polishing, we may ask you to try again. If it needs minor changes for web format or grammar, we’ll do that. By submitting a guest post, you’re agreeing to allow us to make edits as we see fit, but we will never change your article voice or subject – only format and grammar.
If accepted, we hope to upload your article within 24 hours. If we are running behind, we will try to give you an updated time frame, and we appreciate your patience.
If there are minor edits, just let us know, and we’ll fix them for you.
At this time, we do not. If that changes, we will update this page with current rates. But there are still great benefits to guest blogging and building your web presence.
If your article fits with our site and meets our guidelines, absolutely. Rock that resume, girlfriend.
Great! To both! Some bloggers want to write to grow their writing resume, and some bloggers want to be a regular writer. There is room for both at Blufashion.com.
Yes, please. We will not post alternative images such as drawings or artwork. If you do not want a headshot, we will leave it out. No biggie. The bio should be 2-5 short sentences about you, your website, or your blog.
After the Article is Published
- Answer Comments – readers may like to discuss your article in the comments. Having the guest author answer comments adds to your credibility and is just an overall better response. You’re the expert in the article, and having the expert answer your questions is awesome.
- Promote on Social Media Sites – We’ll do this as well, but submitting your article on your social media accounts will provide you with more eyes and more people coming to your site from ours. You’re free to link to the article from your blog as well, but you can’t re-post the whole article.
- Consider Writing With Us Again. We’d love to have you.
- Become a member of our Product Review Club. Once you submit your first product review and it is approved for our site, we will add you to our “Product Review Club” if you are interested. We often get requests from manufacturers to review beauty products, and when we do, we will randomly pick a member of our “product review club” and have the manufacturer send it right to you. We’ll ask if you’re interested, but if we don’t hear back from you right away, we’ll pick another member. In exchange for the free product, you are agreeing to write a review (stating both the pros and cons of the product) for Blufashion. Questions? Email us at support[at]www.blufashion.com.
Adherence to these editorial guidelines is crucial for maintaining the high standards of BluFashion. We look forward to collaborating with passionate and talented writers who are keen on contributing meaningful content to the fashion community.
