Guest Posting

Thank you for your interest in guest writing for Legal Reader. We’re always happy to collaborate for the benefit of your readers and ours.

Guest posting with us is totally free. We do not accept payment, nor do we pay for guest posts. We do offer you your own byline. This includes your name as you would like it to appear, a one-paragraph bio, and a head shot. You may reference your website, if you have one, in your bio. Do-follow links are welcome in both bio and post. We also promote guest pieces by pushing them to our social media networks. 

Our posting requirements are simple.

  1. Posts are a minimum 400-600 words long. We like to cap the word count at 1,000 max.
  2. Topics are typically your choice, but should fit with the overall theme of our site (law, general news, non-promotional). We would like to know the topic ahead of the time you submit the post.
  3. Posts should be sent to jay@legalreader.com.
  4. We publish two images with each post. One is a “featured image” that appears at the head of the post. The other is an in-line image placed appropriately in the body of the post. We provide the images so as to ensure there is no copyright infringement.
  5. We encourage guest writers to share their posts with their networks (social media, etc.). All we ask is a link back to the article on our site.

Please read the fine print:

Due to the overwhelming volume of requests, we do not accept requests for link insertions. The only way to get your link on our site is to write a guest post for us.

Posts are published in the order received, and we are often booking two+ weeks in advance.

Unless otherwise specified, publication dates are tentative and subject to change.

Please understand that we receive a high volume of email and will likely not be able to reply right away. It may take as much as five business days. If you send follow-up messages before you hear from us, it will only delay our response.

If you receive an auto-response email from us, rest assured we have your inquiry/article and will get back to you.

Due to the volume of submissions we receive every day, we answer the oldest emails first. When people send follow-ups, those messages bump the “received date” to the day we got the follow-up.

Example:

Original message received on 2/4/2019.

Follow-up received on 2/6/2019.

We’ll reply to messages dated 2/4 FIRST, but yours is now dated 2/6 because the follow-up created a thread.

Your patience is appreciated.
