About This Blog
A Chronic Voice is a health, wellness and chronic illness blog. I write most of the content here, but I welcome guest posts, too. Do read some of the ‘Published’ posts before you submit a pitch, to get a feel of the tone and type of content preferred here. Do take note of the following guidelines before you contribute your idea or pitch using the contact form below.
- Content must be unpublished elsewhere, including your own blog.
- It would be great if you could refer me to some articles that you’ve written before.
- You can pitch your idea first to see if it will be a good fit.
- After pitch approval, please send the final, error-free draft to me. I may edit it further before publishing, or reject it for any reason.
- An average word count would be around 700. But I rather have quality in every sentence, and do not mind less or more.
- You may link up to two of your own blog posts within the guest post, if they are relevant.
- You may link up to five external sources, if they are relevant.
- All facts and statistics you use must link back to the original source. The source should be a credible one, such as a governmental or educational body.
- You should get a response within 2 weeks. If you don’t, feel free to follow up with me again.
- It would be great if you could provide some pictures to go along with the post. I will create the featured and Pinterest image on my end for consistency purposes.
- Do include a photo and short bio about yourself (approximately 150 words), as well as all your social media links.
- There will be no payment for guest posts from bloggers. It is meant for cross-promotional purposes, and I will share it to all my social media channels.
