Think I am going to change my guest post policy


What do you think?


Maybe I'm just too nice, but I get a lot of guest-post requests and hate to say no.  Lately, I have been trying to give guidance to make sure the posts are something that I want to read, and really only 1 in 4 are.

I tell people I prefer guest posts from people who have homeschooled and so they all say they have, but the posts don't read that way to me.

Anyway, from now on, I will only take guest posts from individuals... not companies.

That means that if typical mommy blogger wants to guest post (which they never seem to want to) then I am all for it.  If XYZ semi-commerical, college list, nanny site wants to guest post, the answer is no.

Before I push the button and make this official, I would love some feedback on the guest posts on my site.

Thanks.

(PS... to review my most recent guest posts to see for yourself, you only need to click "guest post".

Yep! You've been too nice!

Have you considered posting some of your youtube videos and/or making new ones? :)

Now that I have a new computer I might. The old one caused buzzing in the videos.

Guest policy changed. Only accepted from homeschoolers and their parents. If you want an ad, you have to pay for it.

LOL - I somehow ended up in the same boat with my homeschool blog and was considering the same decision - all commercial applicants for guest posts and mostly a waste of time to read.

I think I'll follow you and push the same button :-)
