How to Guest Post on Mission to Learn
Mission to Learning is a blog about:
- How we learn
- How we can learn more effectively and efficiently
- How we can use our ability to learn to create more meaningful and fulfilling lives
If you are a writer who has something provocative, deeply useful, or just plain interesting to say in any of these areas, I would welcome a guest post from from you. And, of course, writing about any topic is fantastic way to learn more about that topic.
Before submitting anything, however, please take a minute to read the following guidelines for how to guest post on Mission to Learn.
First, it is a good idea to run any article ideas past me before actually writing something. That will help make sure what you plan to write is actually a good fit for Mission to Learn.
Keep in mind, also, that this is not an “education” blog. I don’t publish lists of courses or posts about earning online degrees or reforming the K-12 school system. The posts here don’t tend to focus on formal education at all. They are more about how we learn and how we can leverage our ability to learn to create better, more fulfilling lives.
Any advice you offer needs to be backed up by your own, concrete experience or by legitimate, publicly available sources. I won’t publish stuff that sounds like the standard self-help pablum.
If I haven’t scared you off yet, here are a few more practical guidelines and requirements, most of them pretty obvious.
- The article has to be original and cannot have been published on any site previously. I do actually check this.
- You always own the content you submit and will always be credited for it. When you submit it, however, you give Mission to Learn the right to post it and you agree that you will not publish it anywhere else or submit it anywhere else for publishing.
- The article cannot contain a link to any affiliate sites or overt sales promotions.
- If you reference other sites in your post, you must provide the links to those sites.
- I reserve the right to edit or reject any article for any reason.
Please include a brief bio with your submission as well as a link to your site.
In case it is helpful, here are some examples of the types of posts that have been successful and that I think are a good fit for Mission to Learn:
- Lessons/tips from reports or studies, e.g., 15 Ways of the Successful Self-Directed Learner
- Lessons from a popular/classic book, e.g., Applying the 6 Key Adult Learning Principles to Yourself
- Posts based on new research about learning, e.g. Exercise and Learning: 5 Recent Studies Strengthen the Connection
- Lists of resources of particular interest to lifelong learners, e.g., 25 Free Online Resources and Web Apps for Lifelong Learners
- How-to that help readers learner better, faster (again, though, these need to be based in research or concrete experience), e.g., 5 Lifelong Learning Power Tips for the Serious Learner
Finally, if you have questions, or would like to discuss potential topics or any other aspects of how to guest post on Mission to Learn, please don’t hesitate to contact me. And thank you for visiting!
