Guest Post Guidelines

Hey there, you blogging machine, you!  I welcome guest posts from fellow travel bloggers who want to widen their reach and get noticed by the readers of A Passion and A Passport.  Interested in learning more? 🙂

I am currently looking for these specific article types:

  • 15+ best things to do in a particular city/area
  • Day trips from popular cities/areas
  • Long Weekend (3-day) itineraries
  • Specific accommodation posts per city (top hotels/hostels/airbnbs)

If you feel you have an idea that matches one of the above, feel free to contact me via email

NOTE: If you are looking to place a commercial link, please don’t pretend to be a blogger.  I’ll catch on fast enough.  Please email for rates.

Specific Guest Post Guidelines:

*Please read through the guidelines before submitting a pitch to ensure you agree with all before wasting anyone’s time. 🙂

  • Please make post at least 1,500 words. Search engines prefer more in-depth articles, meaning the longer your guest post on my site, the higher chance it will rank well in Google, meaning more opportunities for click throughs to your blog.  I also can’t imagine conveying a well-thought out post idea in less.  Give people what they want (people want information!)
  • Write like you’re having fun – be witty, hilarious, downright silly. No one wants to read a horrifically boring article (nor will they). Throw in a few jokes or silly bits.  😎
  • Insert the keyword phrase “things to do in _____/day trips from _____/3 days in ___” at least 5 times throughout the post. Please make it sound as natural as possible.  It’s good practice for SEO purposes. Yay, thanks!
  • 100% ORIGINAL CONTENT. No duplicates from your personal blog or elsewhere.
  • Send over 1 high quality picture for each thing to do/day trip. Feel free to source from Flickr CC with credit included in post, or provide links to sourced Pixabay photos (they’re free and awesome!) Please no close-up photos of yourself.  I can source photos for you if need be, but give your best efforts to source yourself first. 🙂
  • This goes without saying, but any commercial links will be removed automatically.  Please email me for commercial link rates.
  • Aim for at least 15 things to do/see/eat, and at least 5 day trips (preferably more) from city/area.
  • Include a “pre-travel” guide of the city, with short paragraphs of each:
    • How to get around
    • When to go
    • Important things to pack
    • Where to stay with recommended hotels
    • Important phrases in native language (if applicable)

Please structure it like posts below:

Things to Do in X // 3 Days in X // Day Trips

Please copy and paste text into an email, and attach photos to email renamed with the thing it is for.

In return I can offer the following:

– 2 do-follow links to blog posts relating to content or your blog homepage
– social media promotion on Facebook and Twitter tagging your social media handles

Note that I have rights to edit text as I see fit, and the possibility to add affiliate links should I feel this will greatly enhance the user experience.

Let me know if you have any questions! Yay for expanding your blogging reach and producing quality content! You’re awesome!
