Note: I was saturated with guest posts; therefore I suspended to accept new guest posts.

Which are the Benefits by writing Guest Posts?
For the Guest Writer:
You can get exposure to a new audience and the possibility of increasing your subscriptions with new readers for your site.
For every type of article I’ll be promoting it through my social networks and I guess that you’d do the same with your networks.
For my Readers: is viewing new points of view of different themes and exploring new interesting sites indeed.
- Your post written for Sweets Foods must be original, in other words, the same has never been published on any other site/blog, including your own blog.
- The article can include a by-line with a link to your blog, which will be put at the end of the article.
– It’s not allowed linking to commercial sites /affiliate links; the same should be a blogger – guest post type.
– If you represent a company, or is a freelancer for guest posts acting on behalf of your clients, sorry I’ll not consider your article.
- Optionally, you can include in your by-line an extra link to your preferred personal social-site namely: Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus or whatever.
- Search the blog to see the writing style and make sure that the subject you write doesn’t match a former article. Please avoid repeating themes already touched many times.
- Proofread your article for grammatical or spelling errors. Anyway, I’ll check the same and if it were necessary, eventually, I can edit your work to correct it.
- The article should have at least a minimum of 1500 words. If it’s possible, I prefer lengthy-quality articles; also it’d be scannable with headlines, sub-headlines, bulleted lists, etc.
- I request to guest writers replying to each of all the comments generated of their own guest post. This is a social blog therefore after the post is live if you don’t reply to the comments, individually, in a reasonable term of 3 days, I reserve the right to delete the link in the author by-line. I know it’s harsh, but I don’t want people just “post and run”.
- Please use an email address associated to your Gravatar image that you check often, to follow the comment-notifications and engage with the readers. At the bottom of the comment box, you’ve a button “Notify me of followup comments via e-mail” to follow-up all the comments.
- Please, link to former posts on my blog within the article, with topics-related to the same and also quality outbound links associated to it. I’ll not accept your article if the in/out links aren’t included.
- Attach any images you want to include in the post, including the correspondent credits and/or your own screenshots corresponding to the topic of the article.
- If you’ve done other guest posts before, please submit some of the links to your past writing experience.
