Conservelocity welcomes submissions and invites posts from guest bloggers – especially if they’re kinda quirky. You do not need to be a professional writer to join the party. We’re looking for passion and purpose that fit our theme, which focuses on political and current event commentary from a conservative perspective. Caveat: Please do not submit the post equivalent of War and Peace. Tolstoy beat you to it. Here are some basic guidelines:
Original: Fresh, original material is preferred. If your post has been published elsewhere, it won’t necessarily be turned down. Just indicate when and where it appeared previously. Please include links back to the site and appropriate attribution. If you post your submission to your own blog as well, please link back to this site with the following text: “This was written as a guest post for Conservelocity” (where Conservelocity is a link to this site) .
Quality: Please double-check your submission for proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc. We may do brief edits for clarity, but we do not have time to completely re-write a sub-standard submission. Do your homework. Don’t embarrass yourself with sloppy or incoherent content. The world doesn’t need any more Rachel Maddows.
Length: Posts between 250 and 500 words are perfect! Remember that you have five to seven seconds (maybe less) to grab a reader’s attention before they move on. Nothing dissuades a potential reader like a solid wall of text. Break up your post with graphics, photos, videos, quotes, etc. if at all possible. If you post something over 750 words, please use the “More Tag” in the toolbar menu to split your content after the first paragraph or two.
Biography: Link up! You may include a brief bio with your submission (3 to 4 lines). You may also include up to three links to your blog, social site, or twitter feed plus a photo.
Refusal: Conservelocity reserves the right to refuse guest posts for any reason, including contents with profanity, vulgarity, or otherwise objectionable content. Sometimes a post may not be the best fit for this blog. Please understand if we can’t use your content and don’t take it personally.
General Content: This blog is G-rated. Got that?
