First blog post on the new laptop! While my current (crappy) laptop is still in commission for use around the house, it’s physically falling apart too much to safely travel. Aaand I’m about to go to NYC (BookCon), followed by Chicago (Ch1Con), followed by two months hopping around Europe (study abroad and general vacationing). So say hello to the new baby.
Speaking of Europe, I leave in just under a month. The majority of my time across the pond, I’ll be studying at Oxford, which means I’ll be able to keep up with regular posts. However, before that, Hannah, our friend Sam, and I are sightseeing for a couple weeks. And after Oxford, my family’s coming over to tour around.
Which means I need guest posts!
A guest post can be anything from a writing piece to something fashion-related to a funny story about something that happened to you to pretty much actually anything. It can range between 200 and 2,000 words and be as informal or formal as you’d like.
Or, if you can’t think of anything to write, I’m also open to doing interviews. Just email me to let me know you’d like me to interview you on the blog, and I’ll send you the questions.
Interested? Email me your guest post at firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Friday, June 20th, and I’ll let you know when it goes up on the blog. Make sure to paste your post into your email, because I will NOT open attachments. (Or, if you’d like me to interview you, email me by the end of Monday, June 16th, and send your answers back by the end of that Friday.)
Other optional things to include in your email: One paragraph bio; any social media links (blog, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc.) you’d like included in the post; a picture of you. Let me know if you’d like me to edit your post for grammar or typos or anything before it goes up, because I’m always open to doing that, but it’s up to you, since it’s your work.
If you’re not sure whether I’ll accept your topic idea, email a basic proposal outlining what you’ll cover in your post by the end of Monday, June 16th and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible about whether or not you should take the time to write out the entire post. (Topics I can already automatically assure you I will not accept: Porn, or anything even remotely resembling a shade of grey. An open letter about how much you love hamburgers. A clipping from your diary that contains nothing but the lyrics to “Let It Go” and the stains of your fallen tears.)
To recap: I need guests posts and you should write them. (Because you’re beautiful. And I’d be super grateful. And you’re beautiful.)
PS. Countdown to BookCon: Three days!
