CATSOME’s Guest Post Guidelines

Read this before you submit a guest post!

1. Native English Language

You must speak/write English as well as a highly-educated native English speaker, which is the target audience for the blog. If we have to edit out multiple simple grammar and spelling errors it is unlikely we are going to publish your post. If we get to the end of your post and can’t tell what your main point was, we are not going to publish it.

2. Target Audience

The target audience of this blog is cat lovers, cat owners, etc. If your article isn’t specific to these folks, we’re not going to publish it.

3. Subject Knowledge

You should know more about the subject you are posting about more than we do, or at least include some personal perspective about it. Readers of this site seem to prefer “meatier” posts, so posts that contain only information easily found with a 10 second Google search are much less likely to be published.

4. Format Requirements

There are no length or formatting requirements. Read a few posts here and try to submit yours in a similar format/length. I find posts shorter than 600 words are generally too short. More than 2400 is too long. 1000-1200 seems to be a sweet spot.

5. Duplicate Content

Do not submit material you have published elsewhere or plan to publish elsewhere. Google frowns on duplicated content, and punishes both sites in the search engine rankings. When submitting a guest post, you are giving CATSOME the copyright on the material. It is okay to publish an excerpt of your post on your site, and then include a link to this site, but not okay to republish a large portion of the post or the post in its entirety.

6. We Do Not Accept Drafts

DO NOT send us a draft. There is nothing more annoying than spending an hour editing, formatting, and prepping a post only to get a “final version” two days later. A minor correction is no big deal.

7. Evergreen Content

Make your content “ever-green” as much as possible. There may be a gap of 1-4 weeks between the submission of your article and its publication. The vast majority of the content on this site won’t ever really become outdated.

8. Plagiarism

DO NOT plagiarize even a portion of your submitted guest post. That can get both of us in legal trouble. It is considered “fair use” to quote small portions of articles as long as they are attributed to the author and not construed as your own work.
