We welcome contributions or guest bloggers. By writing for ThisCozyDen, you can tell your own story, help others, change lives and reach a big audience for yourself or your brand.
First, we have to explain some guidelines:
ThisCozyDen focuses on homesteading guides and stories. This includes gardening, raising livestock animals (chickens, ducks, goats, etc.), beekeeping, survival, prepping, food preservation and recipes, foraging, farming, frugal living, off-grid alternatives, tools, woodworking, and self-sufficiency.
To contribute, you need to write a guide or a story related to the topics above. If you can’t find your topic, then it’s probably not for ThisCozyDen.
Now, some DOs and DON’Ts.
- Write a 1,000-word minimum original piece. Articles must not have been published anywhere else, online or offline. This includes your personal blog.
- Write in a conversational tone, like explaining to your friends. Be informative, educational, positive, yet still easy to read.
- Include at least one photo. Your photo should be big enough (more than 400×400 px), well lit, and not stolen from other websites. If your article is a step-by-step instruction, one picture for every step is necessary.
- Come up with a title that grabs readers’ attention. Ask yourself: how will reading this article make someone’s life better? What problem does it solve?
- Keep your opening short, preferably less than 100 words (no one likes long intros). Your opening should intrigue readers to continue reading your article.
- Source all claims and statements. If you mention a study, fact, statistic, make sure to link to the original source.
- You can place one link to your own website/profile page in the article, but be sure to tell readers that you’re affiliated with the website. It’d be nice if you link to other articles on ThisCozyDen too!
- Write an article specifically to promote a business, brand, or product.
- Submit an article written by content farms only to boost SEO.
- Link to a product page. All links must point to other articles or homepages.
Use the contact form on our contact page to submit your article titles (and 1-2 sentences explanation, if needed). Ideally, you should come up with 3-5 titles, then we will choose one for you to write.
