Write for us

Thank you for your interest in writing for BabyAppear. Please read the guidelines below entirely before submitting your article for consideration.

To better serve our subscribers, we have put together guidelines for writers interested in submitting a guest post for publication on our blog. Please carefully read the following guidelines before submitting your request. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered at this time.

General Guidelines:

Audience

All guest post submissions should be tailored to parents. The primary goal of our blog is to bring value and actionable advice to our audience.

Detailed & Unique Content

All guest posts should provide a highly detailed and unique reading experience for our audience. We understand that most topics have already been written about, but we expect that if you choose to write about a previously covered topic, it’s from a unique and fresh approach. Guest posts that don’t offer a detailed and/or unique approach to the chosen topic will not be considered.

Topics

All guest posts should fall into one of the following topics:

Content Length

All guest posts should be a minimum of 2000 words (not including author bio).

Author

The author must be an authority or expert on the topic for the article being submitted.

Author Bio Length

All guest posts should contain an author bio with a minimum of 50 words. The bio should provide relevant information about the author, including why the author is an authority or expert.

Purpose

All articles on our blog are published to bring value and actionable advice to our audience. Guest post submissions containing self-promotion will not be considered. Links to high quality outside resources that organically fit within the article are acceptable.

Formatting

Guest posts should follow formatting that adheres to the best practices for on-page SEO optimization. This includes but is not limited to the proper use of headers, bullet points, paragraphs, and highlighted text. Guest post submissions that are not correctly formatted will be rejected.

Exclusivity

Guest posts should be unique to Baby Appear and not published elsewhere. You are welcome and encouraged to promote a link to your guest post on your website and social media.

Outgoing Links

Article Links

Baby Appear does accept guest posts with links to outside resources. However, links may only be to relevant resources with medium to high domain authority and good overall trust scores. Our editors research all links that are submitted. If a link does not follow these guidelines, we reserve the right to remove or replace the link. Our team also reserves the right to add internal links to relevant content that is currently published on our blog. Please be sure to submit no more than 3-4 external links within your article.

Author Bio Links

Baby Appear does accept guest posts that contain author bio’s with links to outside resources. Bio links may be to the author’s website, social media profile or blog. Please be sure to submit no more than 1-2 external links within your author bio.

Before Submitting, Please Read

Original Work

You represent and warrant that this is your original work and not plagiarized and contains no objectionable or libellous material. You indemnify and hold Baby Appear harmless against any suits, claims, causes of action, expenses, or costs of any kind, including legal fees arising out of the original work’s content.

Content Editing

Baby Appear retains the right to edit your article (grammar, formatting) and choose a title that best fits the blog and audience.

After Submitting, Your guest post submission will be placed in a review process and will be given one or more of the following statuses

In-Review

All submissions are automatically placed in-review. Our team will review your guest post submission, which takes 7-14 days. The average publishing time from the date of submission is 2-4 weeks.

Pending Additional Information

If your article is pending additional information, you will be notified via email. This status simply means we need more information regarding your guest post submission before accepting and queuing it for publishing.

Accepted

If your article is accepted, you will be notified via email. The guest post will be scheduled for publishing, and you will be provided a URL once the article is live.

Rejected

If your article is rejected, you will be notified via email. A rejection general means the submission violated the posted guidelines or is simply not a good fit for our blog or audience. At this time, there is no option to appeal a submission rejection, but you may submit a new guest post for consideration.

Guest Post Promotion

Baby Appear will provide an email blast promoting our favorite guest posts to our subscribers and on our social media accounts. Not all guest posts will qualify for the promotion.
