Thanks for your interest in writing a guest post for the Outdoor Adventure . net. If you’re a marketer looking to submit an article with back linking, please scroll down to the section titled “Back-linking posts.”
As we receive a lot of guest post ideas, we cannot guarantee that we use everything submitted. There are a number of guidelines we’ve put together with the help of other bloggers that you should follow to increase the likeliness of getting your article posted.
Please make sure that your article:
- contains quality, clear and interesting advice and information that takes into account our readers
- is exclusively written for and contains content exclusively used for the Outdoor Adventure (no re-posts please!)
- Is submitted with all necessary information that you want in the final version—links, link text, etc.
- infringes no copyright laws
- includes a headline, body text, and your byline.
We ask that the posts you submit to us are written exclusively for use by the Outdoor Adventure. If you want to write on a topic familiar to you or that you’ve posted about elsewhere, please make sure it is original or at least re-written without borrowed text for the Outdoor Adventure.
When considering blog content, please keep in mind that our target audience is outdoors adventurers. We have a love for outdoors DIY projects so if you love that, we’d love to hear about it!
We welcome gear reviews, but they must be written by 3rd parties. If you represent a company, we’d love to talk about the opportunities we can offer you.
We’re a bit tired of marketers insulting our intelligence by offering us “free content” which is really just an opportunity for them to promote another company’s website (which they are getting paid for). Don’t expect a reply if that’s what you’re trying to do.
We are well aware that back-linking is popular for increasing google results and often have articles submitted with keyword linking to a company’s website. We don’t oppose this, but prefer to work together with companies in product and gear reviews where we can present honest and personal reviews or DIY projects in which we can offer the same benefits to you the company while providing beneficial information for our readers.
We’d love to talk more about how we can work together to increase awareness of your company and make it fun and interesting for our readers. Maybe we can integrate it with a DIY project!
No matter what your topic, pictures always help support the content of the post. Please make sure your pictures follow all the guidelines outlined here regarding exclusivity, copyrights, and more.
Feel free to submit your content in Word, RTF or plain text format.
Subheadings: Bold any subheadings so they stand out.
Links: Include the URL in brackets within the prose, immediately after the text you’d like to use as the link text. Note that we don’t publish affiliate links in guest posts.
Please do include everything you want to have included with your post in your submission. If you want to include links, paste them in the spot where you want them to go. If you want to use particular link text, tell us. Don’t assume we’ll know what information you want, and where: tell us clearly.
A note on links to your own blog or website…
If it’s relevant to the topic you’re writing about, you’re welcome to link back to your blog within the post. Keep in mind that this relevancy is very important. If we feel your post includes too many links back to your own blog, we may remove them, or reject the post. A high-quality, helpful post will get people checking out who you are more effectively than will lots of links back to your blog.
Your post should be as long as you need it to be in order to convey your message.
We publish posts that vary greatly in length. Anything goes—length isn’t a factor, but quality is. Stick with your own style and voice, and choose a length that sits well with you.
All posts that appear on the Outdoor Adventure may be edited. We rarely edit them heavily, but we will change titles, rework openings or conclusions, or correct grammar and spelling. Don’t be offended by this—we’re just trying to make every post we publish as successful as possible.
Occasionally, we’ll send a post back to you with suggested additions, omissions, or changes. This generally suggests we feel the post could be further enhanced in ways that go beyond some basic editing.
You’ve worked to give us great content, so let us help you promote you. We want to highlight you, your blog, or any product or service that you have to offer. This is largely done in your byline.
Bylines should be a sentence or two explaining who you are and what you do. Feel free to include up to two links in it. Some guests include a link to an RSS feed here, which can convert well. Your byline will appear at the bottom of your post, but we’ll also write a short introductory sentence that will include your main link, and will appear at the top of the post.
If you have any questions or concerns or would like to contact us with your post, please contact us via our contact form.
