Do you have an inspiring story to share with me? Are you interested in getting your articles published on my blog?

Anyone can submit stories of their travels to me as long as they are fairly well written, and adhere to my guidelines, which you’ll find below. Let me remind you that blogging is not for everyone, so it’s not a requirement that you do have your own blog. If you do, that’s great and I’ll link back to you from here. Take note “fairly well written” means that you have checked your grammar and you have turned on spell check.

Please note that travel stories are not limited to only when you go on big trips. Local trips and pieces like “10 Best Coffee Shops in Paris” all fall under my scope. Lifestyle articles are also accepted. “Lifestyle” is an extremely broad category so you pretty much have free-reign. If you are unsure, just drop me a quick mail and I will let you know if it fits.

So, if you are looking for opportunities to grow your readership and build fresh links to your site, here is an opportunity to add to your to-do list. The number of articles you write in a month depend solely on you and I am here to help if necessary. I will also post the articles on my social media pages for further exposure. If you are up to the challenge, contact me at megan@notanotherguide.com.
