Blog Submission Guidelines
**Submissions open November 15, 2020.
Blog posts on BJBuckley.com/Little Visioneers will serve to share information that contributes to personal growth and well-being. It is a place for community, where people come together to share what they’ve been through and what they’ve learned.
Anyone can submit an original post (not previously published anywhere else, including your own site, or taken from a book), with a small bio, for inclusion on the blog.
What makes a strong blog post?
They are deeply personal and honest. They pull the reader in emotionally, painting a vivid picture of a universal, relatable life experience.
They provide insightful and thought-provoking advice, enabling readers to understand themselves and the world on a deeper level.
They’re practical and actionable, when applicable. Not all posts need a list of things to do; in fact, some are more powerful without one. But when the topic warrants clear action steps, these posts can be quite inspiring.
The word count should be between 1,000 and 2,500 words.
Share a specific story from your life, by providing details such as: What happened? Who was there? What do you think caused this to happen? How did you feel when it happened? It’s important to share your lessons and insights. The post will be more powerful if you also share how you came to learn them.
Offer practical tips to help readers overcome similar challenges with a clear message that might evoke an “A ha” moment.
Choose a topic related to personal growth that isn’t gender-specific and speaks from your heart. The categories are as follows:
change & challenge,
happiness & inspiration,
purpose & passion or
love & relationships.
Please refrain from referencing your blog, coaching practice, book, or speaking career in the body of the post.
Include a bio, seventy-five words or less, at the bottom of the post. You can include as many links as you’d like as well as your preferred email for contact from readers.
How to Submit
Send your post in plain text, not HTML, in Microsoft Word to littlevisioneers(AT)gmail(DOT)com, with the title in the subject line. Please only send one submission per email.
Please provide a photo of yourself if you’d like a photo to show next to your blog post.
If your post feels like a good fit for the blog at this time, you will receive a response within two weeks. If you don’t receive a response, please feel free to try again with a different post.
You may be asked to revise to make your post stronger or clearer, and your proposed title may be changed before the post goes live.
Your post may be edited for clarity, grammar, and overall style. If there are any major changes made, you will be asked to review and approve it first.
Thank you for the light you share, and for being part of the Little Visioneers community!
