Post Submission FAQs

  • On which topics do you accept guest posts?

    Our primary focus on this website, currently, is our shop. However, we like to include guest posts that are "How-tos" that contain instructions on how to do things: DIY projects, crafts, sewing, etc. They can be weird...my daughter, for instance, has the habit of doing strange things with Furbies! Kitchen crafts can be included, but we're not a food blog and don't do food recipes unless it involves making an unusual dessert! We do accept some posts on photography, digital art, etc.

    We might write a post on blogging, etc. from time to time but don't want guest posts on the subjects of WordPress, blogging, web design, etc.

    Please do not submit posts on topics totally unrelated to this blog. Don't send us your martial arts posts, travel blog posts, beauty tips, etc.

  • Do you pay for guest posts?

    We're sorry, we do not pay for guest content at this time.

  • I'd like to submit a post. Please choose from one of the following topics...

    Nope. Please just submit your post using the post submission form. Ensure that it's a craft/DIY/tutorial type post, and we'll consider it.

  • How much do you charge for guest/sponsored posts?

    Currently, nothing -- we don't pay for posts nor do we offer sponsored posts at this time, as we're focusing most of our energy on our shop.

  • Do you "dofollow" links in guest posts?

    Oh, the big question! Sometimes -- we make that decision on a case-by-case basis.

    If we ever decide to offer sponsored posts (which we currently don't do), the links in those posts will be strictly marked as sponsored.

    Is your link to a product, an affiliate link, or a link to your website that doesn't relate to the subject at hand? We might "nofollow" links like that? Or is your link a necessary and helpful reference that relates to the subject matter of your post? Links like that will be followed.

    As far as your author page/bio is concerned we do not mark the website URL there as "nofollow".

  • How will I know if my guest post has been accepted and published?

    We have automated emails in place and our website will send you an email to confirm that we've received your submission and will send you a brief email when your post has been scheduled, published, or if it's been declined.
