The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owners. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement.

Sometimes stories in this blog may be of illegal or distasteful subject matter; in which case, “characters and events posted by this blog are entirely fictitious and accordingly any similarity between them and actual characters or events is entirely coincidental.” The bloggers at EagerExistence.com write for entertainment, even if the information/events/characters appear defamatory or illegal in nature.

Guest Posting Policy

I welcome guest posts on my site, and I’d love to guest post on your site, see my guest post page for posts I have already written. Alternatively, see the guest post category for posts written for me.

Before I accept guest posts, I do have some guidelines that need to be followed:

  1. The post must be a minimum of 500 words, and generally no more than 1,000. If it’s longer, think of breaking it up into a series.
  2. The post must be unique, original, and not published anywhere else on the web.
  3. You can refer to the guest post from your blog, but cannot republish the content. Generally, the opening paragraph is acceptable to host on your personal blog with links to your guest post for readers to “continue reading”.
  4. You can include up to two links in your bio, and I would appreciate it if your post linked to content on my site at least once.
  5. Your links should not point to any commercial site or to any site where you are selling something. If they do, then it is not a guest post, but a sponsored post.
  6. The subject must be relevant to this blog. If you need help with what this blog is about see the about page, subscribe to the RSS feed, or get the posts sent directly to your inbox.
  7. If it’s a “hot topic”, or something that has been posted about many times on numerous blogs before, you better be offering a unique opinion, or something that makes my readers want to read your post over the many others out there on the Internet.
  8. You have to know your topic better than me. I like learning from others, but I don’t want ‘filler’ post just to make up content, posts that I could have written myself.
  9. The post should be grammatically correct and spell checked.
  10. As a guest blogger, you agree to reply to any follow up comments to the post; including on social networks.
  11. You must have a Gravatar. Don’t you know the importance of a gravatar for a site?  For a person? It lets us build a brand for ourselves. It also affects the image of the blog. Get one by visiting gravatar.com and associating your headshot/brand image with the email address you use for commenting.
  12. You have to be open to future collaboration.

Sponsored Posting Policy

I welcome discussion about the possibility of partnering for sponsored posts on this site. Here at EagerExistence.com we are always open to innovative advertising ideas and sponsorship opportunities (as explained on the advertising page).

sponsored post

Guidelines for sponsored posts extend those of the guest posts, as well as:

  1. Posts can be written by you, or me; there is a different rate for each.
  2. Links will not just tout a product or service, but be related to the post content and website themes.
  3. If pitching a sponsored post, please do not try and pass it off as a guest post. We can tell the difference and prefer transparency with our partners and our readers. Therefore,
  4. We will always disclose sponsored reviews and freebies to our readers.
  5. Content is posted live to the front page of this blog for at least 7 days, and will exist permanently in the archives to benefit from search engine traffic.
  6. Links will exist in the post for a period of at least 12 months, depending on the rate negotiated.

This sponsored posting policy is subject to change at anytime.
