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.
