Thank you for your interest in contributing to BabyBoomster.com. I receive many queries from writers who want to submit content. In order to maintain my site’s integrity, it’s imperative that all guest posts speak specifically to my audience of active women over 50.
If you are working for a content marketing company and are seeking a backlink to a specific site other than your own blog or writer’s website, please DO NOT contact me regarding a guest post.
I accept guest post pitches from writers who are:
- Baby Boomer or midlife writers
- Write specifically for the active “over 50” demographic
- Speak English fluently (Most of my audience is based in the U.S.A.)
- Can provide valuable tips for my readers and not a sales pitch.
If you feel you are qualified, please send your submission to email@example.com. Topics can include travel, wellness, beauty, fashion, entertainment, self-improvement, finance, retirement, reinvention, smart eating, and lifestyle. Please also send links to samples of your work.
Posts need to be relevant to active and vibrant Baby Boomer women (mostly over 60) who are out in the world getting things done, enjoying life, have a thirst for knowledge, and want to stay well and happy. BabyBoomster.com does not focus on elderly concerns, senior care, or caregiving even though they are extremely important topics.
Guest Post submissions writer guidelines
I reserve the right to edit your post in any way I see fit for brand consistency, SEO purposes, spelling/grammar, and language. If you have a problem with that, please do not submit a post. I will schedule your post according to my editorial calendar. I also reserve the right to add affiliate and reference links. If your post is accepted, please send a one-paragraph bio and make sure your headshot and email are connected to a gravatar.com account. (that way your headshot will show in the author box) In your bio, you may also link to your personal website and social media accounts.
Please submit your post via a Microsoft Word or Google doc attached to your email. It can be anywhere between – 500 – 2000 words in length. In addition, you may attach any images (original or licensed) that you would like included. This is optional. If you do not have images, I will add them.
As a guest author, you may include ONE do-follow link to relevant content on your personal website in the content. However, DO NOT include affiliate links, shopping cart pages, or links to low-authority sites as they will be taken off. You may also insert 1-2 citation links to authoritative sites and any internal links to BabyBoomster.com that you deem appropriate.
Your posts must be original and not published anywhere else on the web. I prefer them to be personal with valuable insights rather than bland and formulaic. Knowledge of basic SEO is expected. Use H2 subheaders to break up large blocks of content to make it easier to read and scan.
My staff consists of me, myself, and I. Sometimes it may take me a couple of weeks to publish a guest post because I need to edit, add photos, links, etc. I also intersperse my own posts with guest posts. In other words, it will get published when I can get to it. You don’t need to send a reminder email and please do not request a deadline.
Once your post has been published it is the property of BabyBoomster.com and will only be removed at my discretion.
In return for posting your content, I would appreciate it if you would share the URL link on social media and I will do the same.
Sponsored Content (advertorials)
I frequently write sponsored posts for brands I believe in to review and advertise their product or service with the disclaimer that all my opinions are my own. (please click here to view my Media Kit) In order to maintain my integrity, I will need the opportunity to try out the product or service before writing about it. My FEE: starts at $500, depending on your needs, and includes social media shares.
I am also open to accepting a pre-written post or link placement to highlight your brand ONLY IF I believe in your product or service and approve the copy. In exchange, it will be full-width content and ad-free.
- The cost for a full blog post with social media shares starts at $300. Advertorial posts will not be accepted if they are a blatant sales pitch and must contain valuable information and tips that would be of help to my audience. One do-follow brand link may be inserted to relevant content.
- A link insertion starts at $125. It must be approved and be connected to a relevant high authority site with DA of at least 30.
- According to FTC guidelines a disclaimer must appear on sponsored posts that have been compensated either monetarily or with free product.
