Write For Us
We are now accepting guest posts from bloggers who would like to increase their reach within the sleep and health related niches.
If you would like to write for Sleepy Deep, please read the following:
Guest articles must be related to sleep in some way. This means they can either focus on sleep itself, or on an overlapping topic. For example, some overlapping topics which would be a good fit are:
- Health including related topics such as wellness, fitness, healthy eating and diets, weight loss, and longevity
- Parenting including topics such as raising teens, maternal, and baby
- Stress relief including topics like relaxation, meditation, and yoga
Keep in mind when pitching a topic that Sleepy Deep is all about promoting the importance of healthy sleep. We spend one third of our lives asleep, and sadly, many people suffer from sleep deprivation or other sleep related conditions. The world would be a better place if everyone woke up everyday feeling refreshed, healthy, and happy.
What are the benefits of being a Sleepy Deep guest blogger?
Writing for us is a great way to increase the reach of your audience. However the biggest benefit is for SEO purposes. We have a strong domain with good domain authority. This means that your blog will benefit from the link juice we can send your way.
We will allow dofollow links within the content. However, you are only allowed to include one link and it can not be to any revenue based content. Linking to your home page or any informational article is fine, and this will still benefit the overall SEO of your site.
Where Do We Publish Guest Posts?
Where we publish your guest post depends on the quality and topic. If we like the writing, and the topic is related to improving sleep, we will include it within our Sleep Better section. However, if the topic does not necessarily match the content in this section, we will publish it within a guest blogger section.
Depending on the quality of the guest post, we may accept recurring posts from you. We are always looking to grow our network and we would enjoy receiving multiple guest posts provided the writing is excellent and the topics are of interest. Please do not pitch us for recurring guest posts. We will only invite those directy with whom we would like another guest post.
How Does It Work?
If you would like to write for us, please send an email to [email protected]. Please include a short pitch about the topic of your blog post. If we like the idea we can take things from there.
Please do not submit a guest post without first obtaining approval from us. Any guest posts sent directly to us without prior correspondence will be ignored.
