If you’re interested, please read the contributor guidelines below, take a look at our writer’s guidelines, and then fill out the Writer Application form.

Contributor Guidelines

Our writers typically fall into two categories:

1 – Writing For Us Because You Love Writing & Crafts:

For writers that contribute occasionally and aren’t promoting a product or business, we offer a $25 bounty for accepted blog posts.

We also have a limited number of slots for ongoing writers that we pay on a monthly basis – usually these spots are reserved for writers we’ve worked with a number of times in the past.

2 – Guest Posting For Us Because You’re Promoting Something:

If you’re looking to write a guest post for us, and don’t want to be paid but instead you want to include links to something you’re promoting, then we have really high-quality standards for accepting that type of work.

This generally applies to the following types of writers:

  • You own/work for a company and are blogging to promote it.
  • You run a blog that sells ebooks, courses, services, or other revenue other than banner ads.
  • You work with a marketing agency and are promoting a client.

To be specific, it should be better writing than the stuff we’re normally producing for our readers, and your biases and any conflicts of interest need to be reasonably well disclosed.

What Makes A Great Post On Crafting A Green World:

Please read other people’s guidelines on quality guest posting to get a better idea of what makes an excellent post. In general we want to see the following from guest posts:

  • Be Thorough – Our best posts are 1000 to 2000 words or longer, or 500+ words with lots of original photos.
  • Make it Educational – please don’t pitch your product here.
  • Make it Practical & Applicable – make it relevant for our readers and include lots of useful tips.
  • Show, Don’t Tell – include unique or custom images that haven’t been used elsewhere, video, or other multimedia.
  • Write Clearly – use a tool like Hemingway App if you’re not a professional writer (most of us aren’t).
  • Prove It – use lots of cited and helpful resources, including other content on Insteading and elsewhere on the web
  • Relevant To Your Expertise – write about topics that you have direct experience with – please don’t submit a post on how to cut a wine bottle in half if you’ve never actually done it.
