By submitting your post you agree to the Guest Post Terms & Conditions. Please read before submitting.
What happens after my guest post goes live?
You share it with the world and we will too! We will promote it on our social media accounts & to our email list, but encourage you to do the same. This will make your guest post have an even BIGGER impact.
We also recommend that once the post is live that you link to it in at least one of your relevant blog posts on your site or on a "Featured" or "As Seen On" page of your website.
Important: Do not copy your guest post on to yours or another site. This creates duplicate content which makes Google upset and can potentially damage the SEO of both your site and Moms Make Cents. If your post is republished somewhere else we will be forced to remove it from our site.
