General Writing Guidelines

  • We are looking for a minimum of 1500 words 
  • Please proofread for grammatical errors and sentence structure.
  • All articles must be original content. They must not have been posted previously anywhere on the internet.
  • Make sure to include a bio for the bottom of the post with all your social media accounts and your travel blog linked so we can promote your article and you.
  • Please send a headshot to go with your article and that should also be 800x minimum.
  • You are welcome to include 1 link to a post on your own website.

Photos:

  • Please submit 5-8 relevant photos with your blog post. Ideally, I prefer high-quality landscape/horizontal images. If you don’t have an appropriate photo, I can often provide one from my own visits.  
  • Please send them via email to NationalParkObsessed@gmail.com either as a direct attachment
  • Please name them property so the proper naming for the keyword “One Day in Yellowstone” would be Yellowstone-Old-Faithful [for example]. This will help me know where to place the images!
  • I retain the right to switch out images if necessary. Please do not be offended.
  • Images submitted may be used in the creation of Pinterest pins for the post and shared on Pinterest and other social media.

Fine Print:

  • I may put affiliate links in your article.
  • I may edit things for better search engine optimization.  
  • I may change things around such as ordering or photo placement
  • I may add my own links within the article if they fit naturally
  • I will NOT remove your two do-follow links
  • I WILL promote your article on Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and more!
