I’m always looking for ways to work with companies and fellow bloggers. Here is my background and policy on guest posting. If interested, you are welcome to submit a guest post for my review.
Guest Post & Sponsored Posts
As a travel blog, I’m grateful to reach a broad range of readers. Therefore, I love the option to connect with others to work together on guest posting and sponsored posts. ViaTravelers is a travel blog that provides a wide-ranging of topics around travel, including itineraries, tips, guides, and more.
A guest post is a post that comes from fellow bloggers whereas a sponsored post is likely a post referring to a post about a company or service.
I’d like for you to remain transparent upfront regarding your interest and whether it is a guest post or sponsored post.
For guest posting, you can include two links to your site and include an author’s bio. Please email me with 3-5 suggested topics beforehand. These posts are for bloggers specifically. You can fill out our contact form located at the bottom of the page to submit your topics.
Take your time submitting your topics. Guest posts do the best when they are crafted for a particular story and have a purpose. Not when the reading sounds forced.
There is no set price for sponsored posts, but they will include two links to your site as well as maximum exposure through our social media channels. I promote all sponsored posts at the same level as my own.
Sponsored posts are a great way for up-and-coming companies to gain credible and national exposure instantly.
If you are interested in a sponsored post, please read the criteria for posting and contact me for further information. Sponsored posts will be marked as no-follow to comply with search engine compliance requests.

Here are my criteria for a guest post on ViaTravelers.
- The article must be 100% original content, not published anywhere before. No plagiarism will be allowed. Once it is published on ViaTravelers it cannot be published anywhere else.
- Links: You may link to any relevant articles, resource or site as you see fit. However, you should try to link to relevant articles on ViaTravelers first. Then, you can include two links to your page. Please include an author bio within your post.
