Did you know that A Scientist In The Kitchen now accepts guest posts from people who feel they have something to share with our audience?
As the blog has developed I have realized just how much help I had from others when I started out. I posted articles on all sorts of blogs before this site developed its own audience and each of those articles took me a step closer to where I am today with A Scientist In The Kitchen.
Now I want to afford you the same opportunity. Of course, you have just as much to gain if contribute to my blog as I do. In fact, there are plenty of reasons why you should write for my website.
You Don’t Need To Be A Writer
I’m not necessarily looking for people who have massive writing portfolios. While being experienced will certainly help, I want to emphasize just how much more important your story is when compared to your experience as a writer.
That’s why I don’t want anybody to feel intimidated about writing for A Scientist In The Kitchen, especially if they have never written before. I’m a very hands-on woman, so I’ll be working with you every step of the way should you choose to write and publish your post here. Together we will whip your article into shape and you will leave the experience with a new set of skills that you can use elsewhere.
I Deal With Formatting
A lot of sites that accept guest contributions expect their writers to figure out complex Content Management Systems and guidelines before they can get their work online. Personally, I think that’s a little unfair. After all, your contributions are valuable to my site so I don’t want to put any barriers in your way that would prevent you from writing for us.
As such, if you’re worried about the technical side of things you really don’t need to be. All I ask from the people who submit a guest post to my blog is that they organize the writing as well as they can. All of the technical stuff will be handled on my end, so you just need to make sure your post is as good as it can be.
Sharing With My Readers
Over time, A Scientist In The Kitchen has developed a loyal following of regular readers and the community that surrounds the site is growing all of the time. Hopefully, you are already a member of that community. If you are, then you understand just how much of a demand there is from the site’s visitors for new and interesting content.
By sharing your own experiences with my readers you have the opportunity to legitimately change somebody’s life. Your tips may help people prepare better meals and eat healthily or could give somebody the perfect recipe for a first date. So many little things can happen as a result of your work being online and the feeling of fulfillment when somebody gets in touch to let you know that your work had positive effects on their lives is immense.
Perhaps you already have your own blog and you are working away, trying to build an audience. It’s not easy. I should know because I’ve been there. It took more than a year for people to start paying attention to A Scientist In The Kitchen, but once they did the quality of the site’s content hooked them in and kept them here.
However, breaking through to that potential audience is always the hard part. For me, posting on other blogs that attracted people I thought would be interested in my advice was the way forward. The same can be true for you. At the time of writing, A Scientist In The Kitchen attracts 10,000 unique visitors every month, many of whom become regular readers. Getting your work in front of an audience of that size can really have positive effects for your website.
So What Should You Write?
If you’re interested in contributing to my blog, this really is the million dollar question. While the site covers a lot of topics, it does have a certain niche. To help you out, I’ve created a handy list of topics that I would love to see covered more on A Scientist In The Kitchen:
- Cakes & Baking
- Food Trends
- Healthy Eating
- House Stuff
- Kitchen Stuff
- Vegetarian Meals
- Vegan Meals
That should be plenty to dig your teeth into, but if you need some ideas then articles along the lines of “10 Great Appliances All Kitchens Need” and “Tips For Trying Out A New Recipe” always go down well.
I really do hope I hear from you and you become a contributor to my site.
