Guest Post Submission
Are you interested in writing for Two Wandering Soles?
We’d love to hear from you, but first let’s talk details...
We get many inquiries each day from people interested in writing guest posts, and we are very selective with which posts we accept.
We're looking for guest posts that will be inspiring or helpful to our readers. If you have an idea in mind, keep reading to see our guest post submission process, and fully fill out the form below.
PLEASE READ: We do NOT accept guest posts from companies trying to promote their product or service. If you are interested in promoting a product or service, submit a form on our Work With Us page and we can talk about a potential partnership (which is different than a guest post).
Important: Without submitting this form, we will not consider your guest post.
1. Create your pitch
Come up with an idea (or a few!) and pitch them to us by filling out the form below.
But before you get started, read the bullets below!
We are seeking “Local Guides”: Tell us about your hometown or one of your favorite places in your own country. Who better to write about a place than a local?!
We are currently seeking guest posts for unique things to do in specific cities or countries. For example, “12 Unique Things to do in Sydney” or “18 Ways to Get Off The Beaten Path in Rome”.
We generally do not accept pitches on topics we have already written about or places we have already covered. Familiarize yourself with our website and pitch a unique idea. (Either a place we have not yet visited, or a topic that you have a unique perspective on.)
For example, we have written a lot about traveling in Vietnam, but if you lived there we would be interested in an article about expat life in Vietnam.
Likewise, we have written a great amount on budget travel. But if you are trying to travel on a budget with kids, that is a different perspective and would be an appropriate pitch.
IMPORTANT: Your pitch must be unique and not published anywhere else on the Internet now or ever in the future!
2. Wait for our response
We will try our best to get back to you within one week. We will let you know if we’re interested in your pitch. (If it is approved, you will follow steps #3 - #7).
3. We'll discuss details
If we are interested in your article idea, we will give you a few pointers about what to focus on. We'll also set a deadline based off of what you indicated in your submission form.
4. Submit first draft
When you are finished with your article, you will send us the following: *PLEASE READ CAREFULLY*
Draft that is free of spelling and grammatical errors.
Important Note: If the draft you sent us is not up to the quality or tone of our site, we will decline your article.
Please make sure you are paying attention to basic SEO and writing in a fun and informative tone. Familiarize yourself with the style of our site.
Quality and original* photographs to accompany your article.
must be resized to 1500 pixels on the longest axis. (We would like for the majority of your photos to be HORIZONTAL.)
*These must be photos YOU have taken. We don't accept stock photos.
Try to aim to have one photo per recommendation if possible. For example: 12 Things to do in Paris, should have at least 12 accompanying photos. Let us know if you have questions about this.
A headshot of yourself along with a short bio (written in third person) and a link to your website and/or social media (if applicable).
This is a do-follow link.
3-5 Pinterest graphics
We will provide you with templates, but it is up to you to pay careful attention to design.
5. Make edits
We will send back any overall edits we’d like made. Please note that we may edit the final draft to better fit our site if needed. We will inform you of this before publishing.
6. Get ready to be published!
Once your final draft is submitted, we will let you know the publishing date.
7. Share the good news!
We’d appreciate if you share on your website or social media (though this is not a requirement).
