Guest Posting Guidelines

You’d like to write for me? I’m honored! I am accepting guest posts from the extremely talented bloggers in the Crunchy Corral. If you’re interested in guest posting on The Maverick Mama, please note the following guidelines:


Your post must be on one of these main topics:

  • Real Food, Weston A. Price or Paleo / Allergy-Friendly food
  • Holistic Health & Wellness
  • DIY Natural Home & Personal Care
  • Progressive, Positive & Attachment Parenting

Your post cannot be an advertisement for your product or the equivalent of a sponsored post.


  1. Your post must be original and not previously published either on the Web or in print.
  2. You agree not to publish it elsewhere, including your own blog or Web site. You may, however, post a brief excerpt or summary on your site that links to the post.
  3. You may provide up to three byline links: one for your blog or Web site, one for your bio or About page, and one for your Twitter username (optional).
  4. Your post should be at least 600 words long and no more than 1700 words.
  5. Other helpful guest blogging resources:


  • I will likely proofread your post for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. In the unlikely event I need to make major changes (unlikely), I will email the post back to you for your approval before posting.
  • I may provide a short introduction or conclusion to your post to provide context or the rationale as to why I think the post is important. I will make sure that my comments are set off from yours stylistically, so that my readers are clear that these are mine and not yours.


I understand the work that it takes to write a great blog post. However, I am not obligated to publish it. The guest posts I will publish are those that in my sole judgment add value to my readers. I am also under no obligation to explain reasons behind acceptance or not, but I will try my best.


If your post meets the above guidelines:

  • Please email it to me at maverickmama [at] outlook [dot] com for consideration.
  • Please include a one to two-sentence byline that includes what you do, along with your blog address and your Twitter and/or Facebook address.
  • Please include the size of your readership: number of blog readers, Facebook friends or fans, and Twitter followers.
  • Please confirm that you are willing to engage with my readers in the comments about your post. This is so important for encouraging a dialogue.
  • Please include the post in the body of the e-mail. DO NOT include it as an attachment. Also, please do not include HTML coding.

I look forward to working with you!

Love in a Mason Jar,

Lea, The Maverick Mama
