Guest Post Content Requirements Checklist

Guest blog posts require a minimum word count, structure, tone, and style. Remember to include your author bio!

✔️ Length and Format 

Guest blog posts should typically be between 800 and 1,500 words in length. Please use a clear and concise writing style, break up the content into sections or headings for better readability, and ensure proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Utilize subheadings to create hierarchy and improve SEO by including relevant keywords where appropriate.

✔️ Structure 

Structure your article with an engaging introduction and a conclusion with concise take-aways. Incorporating subheadings (H2, H3) and bullet points within your blog post can help organize the content and make it easier to read and scan. This improves the overall user experience and accessibility of the information you are sharing. Additionally, utilizing relevant keywords in subheadings can contribute to better SEO.

✔️ Tone and Style

Teach Away’s blog aims to provide informative and engaging content to our readers. We encourage a friendly and conversational tone, while maintaining professionalism. Avoid excessive jargon or technical language and instead focus on communicating your ideas clearly to a broad audience. Engaging content tends to attract more readers and encourage social sharing, positively impacting SEO.

✔️ Bio 

Include a brief author bio (50-100 words) at the end of your blog post, highlighting your expertise and any relevant credentials. You may also provide one or two links to your personal website, blog, or social media profiles. However, avoid excessive self-promotion within the content of the blog post itself. Including relevant links within your content, such as to reputable educational resources, can enhance the value of your blog post and contribute to SEO.
