I'm super excited about the European Year of Cultural Heritage and I decided to open the blog to welcome as many guest bloggers living in/from as many European cities/towns/villages as possible, to share their hometowns. I'm sure my list of "Places to Visit" will blow up after this.
This is an opportunity for guest posts only. If you're a brand or a local travel company, please visit this page: https://www.tripper.pt/work-with-tripper
What I'm looking for:
- One blog post 800+ words about a place where you lived for more than 2 years (as a local or as an expat);- Content must be written in English;- One landscape, high-quality photo (for the cover) and one portrait, high-quality photo (for Pinterest);- You can submit up to 5 photos if you have them or link to your own Instagram photos (please don't link to Instagram photos from others, unless it's a business you're mentioning in the post);- I'll include two do-follow links to your blog in this post: one to your homepage (included in your bio) and one to a relevant blog post;- The place you choose to write about must not be extensively covered already. I want this to focus on lesser-known destinations in Europe and highlight the local culture and heritage as much as possible;- Only mention businesses that are small and/or family-owned;
A few ground rules so we know we're on the same page:
1) Your guest post will be permanently published on Tripper and I strive to have as much evergreen content as possible. This means no references to dates or events that only happen in 2018 (for example: you can say "food festival happens every summer in the month of August" but not "food festival happens from 8th to 15th August 2018)
2) All content must be original (i.e. never been published) and photos you provide must be owned by you
3) Not mandatory, but if you have a "Published Work" page on your blog I would appreciate a backlink to this guest post;
4) If relevant, I will include my own affiliate links in your guest post.
5) I won't make any changes to your content (it's your style, your voice, your article) except correct typos (if you've missed them before submitting it; happens to the best of us!)
6) Not mandatory, but I'd appreciate if you kept the keywords "European Year of Cultural Heritage" in mind when writing your post. Make it neat and natural, no one likes a keyword-stuffed post ;)
7) Please note that depending on the volume of submissions I get, your post can take a while to be live. Once it is, I will email you the link.
Your guest blog post will be promoted as any other one of Tripper's blog post, on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, and will be included in the monthly newsletter. If you don't have a social media account in one of these platforms, don't worry. I will still mention you and your blog.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me at email@example.com
Looking forward for your contribution!Sandra Henriques Gajjar
Also, tell the readers a bit about the culture and History of the place. It doesn't have to be a five-page essay but a short and sweet snippet of what makes the local customs.
There's a chance the order of the sub-headings will be scrambled in the end (I haven't decided on the order yet), so try to make each section stand alone as much as possible.
