Are you a travel, beauty, parenting or keto/low carb recipe blogger or just someone who loves to share great information? We might be able to help each other! How about writing a guest post for MomJunky.com? I have a social reach of 85k and 600 monthly viewers on Pinterest.
Note: This opportunity is only for bloggers and hopeful writers. If you are looking for a link back to a for-profit site than that would be a sponsored post, not a guest post. If that is something you would like to speak about please contact me by email at email@example.com.

Here is what a guest post needs
Your guest post should sell me the topic or event- Use descriptive words to draw the reader into your world. I want them to be able to visualize what you are talking about.
Your guest post should be extremely informative – Write like they are coming to visit and have never been there. That will be true of 99% of those who read your post. So give full and complete information with links, more on that below.
Your guest post should include photos – The minimum is 2 the maximum is 6. The limit is put on to stress the importance of the most useful photos.
Your guest post should be between 1,000 – 1,500 words. In rare cases, shorter/longer posts may be allowed it will be at our sole discretion and that is if the topic warrants it.
Your blog post should be unpublished –we ask that you not send already published works and that you wait at least two weeks before you post it on your site or elsewhere.
Your blog post should be your own work- All submissions should be the work of the person submitting them. Mid-Life Milestones will not be held liable if you are copyright infringing. When you sign the Guest Blogger Agreement you are agreeing that any submission is your own work.
Your blog post should contain no more than 5 links to your own site – We invite you to add up to 5 links wherever you like so that you may reap the SEO benefits of guest posting! Any links that you include need to be directly related to the topic of the post being submitted. Well also happily link to your social media; just include the ones you want in your bio which will appear at the end of you post, more on that below.
Your blog post should include relevant links to other sites. If you are listing a business or attraction in your post, you need to include a link to their website and their physical address. You should be providing enough information to warrant a few links! Don’t be concerned that it will dilute the effectiveness of your post. Search engines love relevant links because it means that you are providing informative and useful content.
Images & Video
We welcome images and/or video to accompany submitted guest posts. The goal of images and video is to transport the readers to a new place.
Your guest post images must:
- Be directly relevant to the post content.
- Be in full color.
- Be your own or you must have the right to use the images and/or video and allow us to use them.

We are pleased to give you credit as the author of your post. We want our readers to get to know you! You are asked to provide a short bio about yourself and your site. Also, this is where you can plug your social media! Your bio will appear at the end of your blog post.

If we use your guest post, you may promote it on your own website, Facebook, Twitter or other social media platforms. Promoting does not mean you post the entire article on these forums. You may include a link to your guest post and a short sentence or two explaining what the article is about.
