Travel Blog Write for Us Pacific Northwest Blog Guest Post

Thank you for your interest in guest posting on Pacific Northwest and Beyond. You’ve reached our travel blog write for us page. We are very interested in having guest bloggers on this site — with a few caveats. Please read on below for our writer guidelines or, if you’ve already read them, you can jump down to the submission form below.

Please note: If your “post” is a Pacific Northwest event (as opposed to a post about a Pacific Northwest event) you’re in the wrong place. Click here to submit your PNW event to our event calendar.

What we accept

Pacific Northwest and Beyond accepts posts related to travel and/or the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Sometimes loosely related. For instance, we sometimes post recipes that are inspired by places we’ve visited and consider foreign language study and outdoor activities and gear related to our main themes.

What we don't accept
  • Posts that are outside of the main subject matter of this site.
  • Posts that are simply a collection of links or promotions.
  • Posts with “objectionable content.” That’s in parenthesis as I realize that people have different views of what that means. For the purposes here, we don’t accept:
    • Porn, or links to porn.
    • Posts that promote or link to online gambling.
    • Content with speech that incites hate (i.e. posts with bigotry, racial epithets, etc.)
  • Posts that are extremely disorganized or not written in good English. We are willing to do some editing. In fact, we probably will do some editing with your permission. However, we don’t want to have to spend an excessive amount of time revamping your post.
  • Posts that you don’t have the authority to publish. By submitting a post to us, you acknowledge yourself as the author of the post and with rights to post it. This means that you haven’t sold the rights to it somewhere previously and that you haven’t cut and pasted it from somewhere else. We do run prospective posts through a plagarism check. And we prefer posts that are original and not reposts from somewhere else (though reworking your own content is OK).

By the way, we recommend Grammarly as being a good, easy to use tool both for grammar and for plagiarism detection — which doesn’t hurt, even in your own content. I always prided myself on having great grammar and spelling, but Grammarly frequently catches errors I missed and certainly makes proofreading easier.

What Do I Get For My Post?

Currently, we don’t have the budget to pay for guest posts. This may change in the future, but for now, we cannot pay you for your content.

However, what we can give you is author credit. That is, you’ll have an author box on your post, if you want, with a link to your website and social media. And you can be listed as an author in the authors widget in our sidebar, and on our authors page, when we get around to making one.

You also get the satisfaction of seeing your post published on our site.

Do You Accept Sponsored Posts?

It’s complicated…

We are willing to consider sponsored posts on this site, but are concerned about the balance between regular posts and sponsored content.

We are concerned about how paid dofollow links can affect SEO, so links on paid, sponsored posts will be nofollow and we do not allow links to the types of posts listed above in “what we don’t accept.”

What are our rates for sponsored posts? That varies depending on the post. We may post a separate form for this in the future, but for now, please contact us with inquiries.

How Will Know When My Post is Accepted?

When you submit your post, you’ll get an automated confirmation email. Please make sure you have submitted your email address to us correctly.

We’ll email you when we reach a decision on your post or if we have additional questions before scheduling it.

When will we get back to you? That varies with our schedule, so we make no promises. Often, it will be within a week or two, if not sooner…unless we’re either ill or traveling.
