Welcome to our Guest Post page.

Below you will find our quest post guidelines.

Currently, I do not plan to publish more than one post per week. These will likely appear on Friday.

Content

Your post must be on one of four topics:

  • Local Quad City Beer

  • Local Quad City Breweries

  • Beer Styles

  • Beer Culture

Your post cannot be an advertisement for your product or the equivalent of a sponsored post. (However, I do have an advertising category for that if you are interested.)

Guidelines

Your post must be original and not previously published either on the Web or in print.

You agree not to publish it anywhere else, including your own blog or Web site. You may, however, post a brief “tease” or summary on your site that links to the post.

You may provide up to three byline links: one for your blog or Web site, one for your bio or About page, and one for your Twitter username (optional).

Your post should be at least 500 words long and no more than 800 words.

Editing

I will likely copyedit your post for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. If I make substantive changes (unlikely), I will email the post back to you for your approval before posting.

I may provide a short introduction or conclusion to your post to provide context or the rationale as to why I think the post is important. I will make sure that my comments are set off from yours stylistically so that my readers are clear that these are mine and not yours.

Disclaimer

I understand the work that it takes to write a blog post. However, the fact that you have written a post and submitted it to me does not obligate me to publish it. The only guest posts I will publish are those that in my sole judgment add value to my readers.

Furthermore, if I do not approve your guest post, I will not explain why I did not approve it or provide any detail. Frankly, that would take more time than I can afford.

Submissions

If your post meets the above guidelines:

Please email it to me for consideration at Contact@QuadCityBeer.com. It usually takes me 1 week to respond.

Please include a one to two-sentence byline that includes what you do, along with your blog address and your Twitter and/or Facebook address.

Please include the post in the body of the e-mail. DO NOT include it as an attachment. Also, please do not include HTML coding.

If I reject your post, you are obviously free to do whatever you want with it, including publishing it elsewhere.
