Our readers want to be inspired and/or challenged to do things that make them extend their comfort zones. See our ‘Passports’ category page for more information then feel free to share your ‘living life’ experiences with us!
- Profits – Specifically ways to make money online irrespective of where you live. And/or productivity hacks to save people time.
Our readers aspire to freedom more than financial riches. It’s location independent income lifestyles and resources that are of interest to them. (Again, see our ‘Profits’ category page for more information).
Irrespective of the above subjects, here is what we are looking for from our guest writers:

Please do not double space after periods or between paragraphs.
We are looking for posts with a minimum of 1,200 words of original content.
Keyword(s) and SEO
If you’re a new blogger and/or unfamiliar with the importance of keywords and SEO, we totally understand! It was a significant learning curve for us when we started out and remains a constant work in progress. If this is the case for you, please let us know as early as possible so we can collaborate more on the following.
Each post needs to have a particular keyword chosen related to the article.
- The keywords needs to be included in the article at least seven times and must look natural and read well.
- Keyword should be specific. A bad example of a keyword (key phrase) = “parenting”. A much better example = “parenting during holidays”
- Average monthly searches for the keyword must exceed 200 searches a month on Google.
- Difficulty rating should be easy or easy-moderate. Where the difficulty rating is moderate, the search volume must exceed 1000 searches per month on Google.
- We use https://www.keysearch.co/research to get this information. (The link is an affiliate link. If you choose to sign-up with Keysearch, please use the code ‘KSDISC’ to receive a 20% discount. We will also earn a small commission at no extra cost to you).
- Keyword idea, search volume and difficulty rating (please give us the specific number) should be included when presenting your ideas to us. (See below ‘How to submit a post’).
Once your guest post is published, we expect you to share it with your social community and you can expect that we will do the same. Depending on the topic and content provided we will share your post on a variety of social and media platforms with the following being an indicative (rather than exhaustive or specific) list; Facebook; Flipboard; Instagram; LinkedIn; Pinterest.
What’s in it for you?
Seeing as we do not compensate our guest writers, each accepted guest post will have an author bio containing 3-4 sentences about the author including one (1) dofollow link. You may also include links inside the article if they are relevant, natural, and will help the reader. (Please do not include affiliate links unless previously discussed with us).
You will get your name and work out to our expanding audience of like-minded followers.
