Would you like to guest post…?


New territory this. But you lot are a lovely bunch so I see no harm in throwing this out there to see what happens. Still with me…?

I love the blogging community. I’ve written before in my post Big up the #Bloggers how I feel we are such a supportive bunch and so I figured this might be the perfect opportunity for me to take my blog to the next level….. I make it sound so… serious!

The thing is, I’m off on my holidays for two weeks as the beginning of June, and while I could easily tap away like a mad thing between now and then, producing content I’m not totally happy with to schedule to go live while I’m away, I thought I could give a couple of bloggers the opportunity to share my platform.

I am not completely new to blogging but any of you who have been regular readers recently, will know that I’ve only just started to take it seriously over the last couple of months. I’ve worked really hard at building this little baby up. And guys, it’s paying off. My traffic is going up, my Twitter followers have increased tenfold and I’m so into scheduling stuff, it all just seems to be happening naturally. Super chuffed about that. So, I don’t want all that to go to waste while I’m away.

Not only would a guest post be a great opportunity for all those involved, but it will be nice to give jakijellz a breath of fresh air. Some new blood.

Just because I’m away it doesn’t mean I won’t help promote the posts. Just you even try and keep me away from social media, holiday or no holiday! I’ll be there to plug it every step of the way.

You might be a small blogger, or you might be a humongous blogger, either way I would be interested in hearing from you. Just bare in mind this is Lifestyle, Family & a little bit of Beauty. If you fall into those categories then I would seriously love to hear from you.

I’m looking for two bloggers. One post would go live on Tuesday 7th June and the other on Tuesday 14th June. Each post will have a week of promotion and plugging via social media from me to my 1050+ Twitter followers and my 145+ WordPress followers (small to some I know, but I love every single one of them!). I would need the posts to reach me by Wednesday 1st June, just so I can get them scheduled and ready before I have to leave in search of sunny weather.

Depending on the amount of interest I get(!) I will be selecting two guest blogs to begin with and any that can’t go live during the two week period I have mentioned, I will be happy to hang on to them and publish them over the next couple of months, so long as the authors are happy with this.


**Update – There is now a guest blogging disclaimer within the Work With Me section, found at the top of this blog. Please do have a read through the small print, just so we’re singing from the same lyric sheet..!

So. Now all the boring stuff is out the way. I’d love to hear from you. Drop me an email at jakijellz@yahoo.com or tweet me @jakijellz.

Let’s do this?

    Hey, would love this to be my debut as a guest blogger! Blogging about a multitude of observations relating to family life and relationships.

      Please do feel free to send me over a post. I will be making my final decision very soon. I’ve had a great response to this but always happy to receive more submissions. I look forward to reading it 🙂

          Thanks for your comments. Your posts are great.

          I have had rather a lot of interest which is great and so I can’t guarantee it would get selected but as pointed out on the original post, any guest posts that I receive that I don’t get to publish during my two week window, I’d be happy to hang on to and publish within the next couple of months, so long as the author is happy, of course.

          I’d need the post by 1st June (at the latest) just so I can get things scheduled and ready to go before I go on my holidays.

          I will of course let you know either way if it’s been selected for publishing.

          Feel free to send me the post over via email. I look forward to reading it.

          Thanks again

    This is a great idea, and is a way for you to have a blogging break, whilst at the same time your blog continues. I hadn’t thought of this approach before. I’m away for over a week shortly, and I’m going to be taking a blogging break which is what I need at the moment. That’s not to say that I won’t be writing posts, I just won’t be publishing, taking part in linky’s or be on Twitter. I wish you all the luck in getting some good posts through, I’d love to hear about your selection process. Have a brilliant holiday, and thank you so much for linking up again at #fortheloveofBLOG.

    Hi Jaki. I’m not sure if I would be able to write for your niche as mine is books and publishing. But I’ll be happy to write for your lovely blog if you can think of any of my niche topics that would could fit in your niche as well.
    Drop by my blog sometime maybe. I’ve reviewing children’s books lately and you might be interested.
    Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and also that I love the tone you use while writing on your blog. 😊

      Hi. Thanks so much for your comments. I really appreciate them.
      I have filled the holiday guest post slots but I have had such a good response to this that I’m hoping to make it a regular thing. Keep an eye on my Twitter (what is your handle & I’ll follow you) and I’ll keep you updated. Thanks again. 😊
