Write for Us: BlogPaws Contributor Guidelines
We receive numerous pitches daily already. Unfortunately, many are irrelevant to our blog and audience, or they’re built around a promotional or sales slant.

So, we decided to formalize our submission process and guidelines to achieve those aims.
Interesting in pitching us? Review the guidelines carefully, and consider these additional tips:
Familiarize yourself with BlogPaws and the type of content that appears on the blog. A successful pitch is one that fits naturally with the content, voice, and style of the existing blog–but adds your fresh spin or unique viewpoint.
Send a brief, compelling pitch rather than a complete post. Unsure about the pitch? Stay tuned for a pitching best practices post next month.
Please do not use the email address for any correspondence other than pitches. Any unrelated or irrelevant emails will be deleted.
All content must be unique. We will accept simultaneous submissions but only if noted in the pitch.
