What are we looking for? Take a look around at www.brookewilkerson.com and you’ll get a good idea of the types of posts that we are looking for! We love a good sarcastic and witty blog post! We also love tear-jerker stories about real-life! Some of the most popular articles are true stories, articles about funny social media threads, and guides. We’re also open to other article topics, so if you have an idea, let us know!
Every article will have your bio included that will include links to your website/blog/social media pages. This is a great way to get your work in front of our audience and potentially gain more followers!
For original articles that have not been previously published, we pay $25/article if it is published on the site. Payment is made via PayPal on the 5th of each month.
For syndicated articles that have been previously published elsewhere, we can still accept them, but do not compensate for them at this time. Even though there is no compensation for these articles, it’s still a great way to get your work in front of our audience and potentially gain some new followers to your own blog, so feel free to submit those articles!
Guidelines:*Protect others’ privacy. If including pictures of social media comments, be sure to blur out names.
* Include relevant pictures and screenshots!
* Keep it classy. We do allow cursing within the articles, but nothing super offensive, derogatory or cringeworthy. If unsure, just submit and we’ll let you know if we need to edit.
*Photo’s should be hi-res and landscape oriented.
*Make sure your article doesn’t need any other editing! We may send it back for edits, if needed.
