Guest Post Policy

When submitting an idea or post for consideration, please keep the following details in mind:

  • All posts must be original, un-published work. You may not use duplicate content or later use the same post you have submitted to me for another website. This will send up red flags to google and will not help either of us.
  • You may not use affiliate links in your post without checking with me first.
  • I reserve the right to remove any photos which are distasteful, low quality, disrespectful to the culture or irrelevant to the post/my blog
  • You submit your post with the understanding that it will belong to Traveling Thru History and cannot be submitted to another blog or published on your own.

  • All graphics and/or pictures must be either taken or created by you, or provided with appropriate licensing to use for commercial purposes.
  • I have the right to request a different graphic and/or pinnable image, or will change out the graphic to fit with the theme and overall feel of my blog as I see fit.
  • You may include two links to posts on your own blog which relate to the post you submit.
  • You can include a short bio, picture of yourself, and 3 social media links including your blog url in your bio at the end of your post.
