Guest Post

I run one-two guest posts per week on ED – I love to share new voices with my readers!

If you’d like to submit a guest post, don’t be shy! Please have a read through these submission guidelines and e-mail your guest post to me – jessica AT with the words ‘Guest Post Submission’ in your subject line.

I accept posts from fellow artisans and bloggers – however, please don’t email me if you are an agency working to get back-links for a company, I don’t accept those sorts of posts.

Please note: I will not accept posts that are a blatant self-promotion, though you may include one of your own products if you are doing a product round-up feature, or as an example.

Special Guest Blogger

Each month at ED, we welcome a Special Guest Blogger. The SGB writes a series of at least 4 posts, as well as an intro post. If you’d like to apply to be a Special Guest Blogger, please email me (jessica AT with your idea! You also get your photo, a link to your site, and your posts on the sidebar throughout the month you are the SGB.

Submission Format

Please submit your post to me in the following format:

  • A title (though I may change this)
  • Text in a Word or Open Office file – or just a .txt file
  • Images attached to e-mail individually
  • Each post MUST have at least one image, which is at least 400 pixels wide. Each image must have correct attribution. That is, you need to provide a link to the original source of the image – not we heart it, or pinterest – but the origin website.
  • Please ensure any links are written in the post so I can easily add them in (for example, ‘go check out so-and-so’s shop {})
  • Please include a 1-2 sentence bio for the end of the post (a picture of you is great too if you’re happy to share that) that includes no more than 3 links
  • Please make sure you have at least a few sentences of commentary if you are doing an image or product-based post – I want to see your personality shine through!!
I reserve the right to edit your post, or decide not to run it if I don’t feel it fits with the ethos/feel of the site. If you’re not sure, just spend some time looking around and reading, and check out my blog categories for some guidelines!

Submission Ideas

If you’re stuck for something to post about, here are some ideas to get you started (you can focus on lifestyle, craft, vintage, crafty biz, food, design, art, photography…):
  • your favourite artist/artists
  • round-up of handmade or vintage items – organised by colour, shape, feeling, texture, theme, style, season…
  • style post – put together a ‘dream outfit’, share a style tip/tutorial, do a ‘what I wore’
  • inspiration – a favourite quote and what it means to you, or a favourite artwork
  • feature a favourite maker
  • interview someone
  • write about your own blogging experiences – what have you learned/tricks/tips/advice
  • ditto above, if you have a crafty or vintage business
  • write a craft tutorial!
  • do a recipe post
  • share your creative space/decor/design tips
  • the possibilities are endless!
  • I accept vlogs and podcasts, too!
If you need any more guidance, have a look at these previous guest posts as examples!
I can’t wait to hear from you! {P.S. If you’ve guest-posted before, I’ll be happy to have you back!! 😀 }
