Southern Mom Loves: Guest Post Submissions

Guest Post Submissions


Thanks for your interest in guest posting on Southern Mom Loves! I’m always interested in receiving well-written, unique posts that will encourage and inspire my readers. If you're a Blogger or a Professional Writer who would like additional exposure or a portfolio sample to link to, feel free to submit your article idea via the form below or to southernmomloves@gmail.com.


Before submitting your post for consideration, please note the following guidelines:

  • I do not accept Guest Posts from businesses. Bloggers or Professional Writers only.
  • Submission of your guest post does not guarantee publication. Your submission will be reviewed and if it will benefit Southern Mom Loves' readers, it is likely to be published.
  • In keeping with the spirit of Southern Mom Loves, guest posts should offer fun or practical tips, advice, or ideas geared towards parents or children.
  • Submissions must be in English only.
  • Preference will be given to those who demonstrate a genuine interest in Southern Mom Loves as a reader or follower. 
  • Submissions with a “visit my site” or “check out my product”-type feel will not be accepted. Likewise, submissions which appear to be strictly PR- or SEO-related will not be accepted.
  • Posts must be high-quality, original content (i.e. not published anywhere else online).
  • Please keep your posts under 1000 words. Posts under 300 words will not be accepted.
  • Use of bullets, lists and short paragraphs is highly encouraged as it makes reading much easier.
  • When submitting your post, you may include an eye-catching horizontal (landscape) Hero image. If chosen for publication I will contact you. At that time you may submit an additional vertical image for Pinterest, process photos, etc.
  • Any images submitted should be owned by you. You must be the photographer or purchaser of the image. If using a "free" image, it must have the proper attribution.
  • Images must be at least 1000px wide and less than 2MB.
  • Please make a concerted effort to use correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Due to time constraints, submissions which require excessive editing cannot be accepted.
  • Southern Mom Loves reserves the right to edit copy for clarity and readability.
  • Links deemed to be irrelevant will be removed without notice. Likewise, any non-working links, affiliate links, or links intended to promote a company or service will be removed without notice.
  • Include a short bio (50 words or less) at the end of your post. 
  • Include an author photo or avatar. This will be linked to your site or a social media account where you can be found.
  • Southern Mom Loves does not offer monetary compensation for guest posts at this time.

These guidelines are not intended to stifle your creativity, but to streamline the guest posting process. Submissions that closely adhere to these guidelines are much more likely to be published!

If your guest post is accepted, it usually takes between one to two months for your guest post to be published. I do my best to notify you within 1-2 weeks if your guest post is not accepted for publication so that you can submit it to another blog.

Depending on how many guest posts are in the queue, it may be a few months before your post is published. Due to the fluidity of blogging and the time-sensitive nature of my content, I generally cannot tell you the exact date your post will be published ahead of time. However, I will notify you the day your post goes live.

If you would like to submit your guest post for review, please use the form below or email southernmomloves@gmail.com.
