We get such an incredible number of emails asking to do guest posts and so few that offer even remotely quality content that we felt the need to put up a public guest post policy. Here it is and it’s really simple:
We accept guest posts and evaluate them on a case by case basis. If we think it’s fun to read, well written, relevant to our readership, contains useful information and is not something we have already covered in detail we publish them – no questions asked, and we will accept a virtually unlimited number of guest posts that meet this criteria. We will not approve your “idea” and we will not help you decide what to write about, send the complete article and we will evaluate it.
If not they go in the circular filing cabinet. We get lots of crappy generic shit like the excerpt below just looking for free advertising – we never publish them. If you want advertising you can pay for it.

Don’t bother to write us and ask if you can guest post, if you can meet criteria above you can. The only way to find out if you meet the criteria is to send us your proposed guest post.
