Contribution Guidelines

As pre­vi­ous­ly stat­ed I am hap­py to accept con­tri­bu­tions from oth­er writ­ers. Of course there are a few rules in accept­ing con­tri­bu­tions. They dri­ve the need for pub­lish­ing con­tri­bu­tion guide­lines on this page:

  • Please send a query email, out­lin­ing your pro­posed con­tri­bu­tion to peter@​gibbledegoox.​com.
  • Please offer an excit­ing page title to go with your post.
  • Your name should not appear in the page title. I shall include it in the excerpt, which I write.
  • Eng­lish is the lan­guage of this site. If you use oth­er lan­guages (e.g. for quotes) please also pro­vide a translation.
  • If you include facts (rather than opin­ion or per­son­al expe­ri­ence) with­in your con­tri­bu­tion then please ensure they are checked and ful­ly attrib­uted. Please include hyper­links, where appropriate.
  • Links to pages con­sid­ered as com­mer­cial in nature (e.g. a page with prod­ucts and prices list­ed) are not per­mit­ted. Such links can cause rejection.
  • I reserve the right to edit your piece. When mak­ing sig­nif­i­cant changes I shall seek your approval before publishing.
  • Please pro­duce a short bio (in no more than 80 to 100 words). It shall be pub­lished at the end of your arti­cle. With­in this, please pro­vide a link to your own blog to allow read­ers to go to your site if they choose.
  • Include a bio pho­to, which need not be a pic­ture of you, but an image that rep­re­sents “brand you” which you use elsewhere.
  • Pro­vid­ed your con­tri­bu­tion is more than 500 words in length, there is no lim­it to how many words you can use to build your sub­mis­sion, just make sure it excites the reader.
  • You retain copy­right of your mate­r­i­al at all times.
  • If you pub­lish on Gob­blede­goox, please not lat­er repro­duce that mate­r­i­al any­where else on-line.
  • We will both be respon­si­ble for mar­ket­ing the piece, using social media chan­nels and oth­er methods.

At this time it is not pos­si­ble to pay for con­tri­bu­tions. The idea behind con­tribut­ing is that we can work togeth­er towards com­mon goals which nor­mal­ly includes extend­ing our respec­tive read­er­ship cir­cles. This should pro­vide ample reward. Addi­tion­al­ly If you have enjoyed writ­ing for my site I would hap­pi­ly return the favour — send me your con­tri­bu­tion guide­lines and I will hap­pi­ly share some­thing relevant.
