Guest Posts

This opportunity is open to those of you who are designers and bloggers – or want to become one!

I would love to share your patterns and tutorials on my site, knitting, crochet and crafts are all welcome.

So what kind of content am I looking for?

I am looking for anything creative! Here are some examples that will fit the theme of the Blog:

  • Wearables – Anything that can be worn such as sweaters, scarves, hats, gloves etc.
  • Home Decor – Something that brings life to the house!
  • Something for your pet to wear.
  • Knitting patterns.
  • Crochet patterns.
  • Craft tutorials.

Qualifications to Apply:

  • Experience with pattern writing; you will have to know how to write clear and concise patterns that will make it legible for readers to understand.
  • You will need at least TWO shots of the finished piece.
  • Any step-by-step photos for parts of the pattern that may be confusing for readers.
  • Being able to deliver all parts by the decided deadline.

How do you benefit from this?

Writing a guest post for another blog has many benefits to you and your site. These include:

  • This will give you the opportunity to be viewed by a new audience; With an average of over 100,000 page views a month, your work will be seen by other makers!
  • You will be able to have a small bio about yourself and link your other socials.
  • Free promotion on Pinterest from me.
  • A way to pingback to your own blog!
  • You will still be allowed to sell the final PDF of this pattern, but you will have to wait 30 days before you can publish it on your own website if you choose to do so.
