Do you have a cool woodworking or home improvement project that you’re proud of?
We allow guest posts on DIYTypes.com as a way to diversify the content and provide readers with new perspectives. Only a small percentage of applications that fit our style, topics, and quality standards will be published.
The following application procedure has been put in place:
If you’d like to be considered, please fill out the application at the bottom of this page.
If you are selected for the next round, you will receive an email requesting an outline of your concept.
If your outline is selected for the final round, you will be expected to adhere to the following policies:
Guest Post Policies
Posts must be completely original, written by you, and never used before anywhere else on the internet.
Make sure the post is easy to read. Break up paragraphs into groups of 2-3 sentences. Use headers, sub-headers, bold text, lists, etc.
Please check, double-check, and triple check your work for typos and grammatical errors. Then, have someone else proofread it for a second opinion. We will not proof your work and submissions with multiple errors will be rejected.
While many blogs go for quantity, by having multiple 300 word posts per day; Genius Types goes for quality. That means we publish longer, in-depth articles less frequently. Posts shorter than 1000 words will not be considered and the preferred length is 2000-3000 words.
Add a two sentence credit at the end of the post which begins with your name and can include one link.
Start by writing the post as a draft in your own blog. Format it as if you were going to post it. Make sure there aren’t any tags specifying fonts or tags. Instead of posting it to your blog, copy and paste the html into a text document to email us.
Attach two or three candidate images so we can choose one. Be aware of licensing rights. Don’t just pick any image you see. Make sure the owner is okay with you using the image. If there are creative commons rights, please include the credit and link. We suggest using Flickr you can filter your results to only include images with creative commons rights. Another option is to purchase an image on iStockPhoto.com.
Please place them at the end of your post.
You are allowed one link to your website to be included at the end of the article along with your credits. No affiliate links are allowed. No keyword stuffing is allowed.
After we publish your blog, please promote it to your followers on your blog, with an email to your list, and on your social media accounts.
Please monitor the post and respond to comments.
Use the form below to send a picture of your project and a brief description. If you are chosen for the next round, we will notify you by email and request an outline of your proposed post.
