Guest Post Submission Guidelines

Thanks for your interest in posting on VanillaJoy.com.  I love to receive posts by others that teach me and my readers something new.

Please note the following guidelines before submitting your post idea:

  • It must be an original post and you must not publish the content elsewhere on the Internet once it is published on my site.
  • It needs to fit in with the general theme of my blog: crafts, sewing, kids activities, parenting, cooking, organization, home decor, etc.
  • Posts with excessive grammatical or spelling errors will not be accepted.  I may do some editing if there are minor errors.
  • For the most part, posts should be limited to 500 words or less.
  • I encourage the use of bullets, lists, short paragraphs as that is what is best for readers.
  • Make sure any links in your post are relevant and valid. I may remove any links that I deem to be irrelevant or that don’t work properly.
  • Include a short bio (50 words or less) at the end of your post. Feel free to include a link to your site.
  • On the day your guest post goes live, it would be nice for you to link back to the post from your own blog, mentioning that you were a guest blogger at VanillaJoy.com.

If you submit a query (i.e. an idea for a guest post as opposed to a guest post submission in full), I will review it and contact you if I like the idea. If you do not hear from me within 2-4 weeks after submitting your query, you may assume I do not think it is a good fit for my readers.

Accepted posts may be published anywhere between 3-15 days depending on my scheduled posting queue. I do my best to notify you the day your post goes live.

If you would like to submit your guest post for review, please email it to kelsey@vanillajoy.com with “Guest Post Submission” in the subject line.

Please include the following:

  1. Your full name.
  2. Your URL (if applicable).
  3. Your post title.
  4. The body of your post.
  5. Attach any images you’d like to include (not required).
  6. A short bio.

My daughter-in-law would prefer velcro rather than a zipper on the Boppy Pillow Slipcover. What do you suggest on the instructions on sewing for using velcro?
Thank You
