Guest posting for Safe Ride 4 Kids

Yes, we do accept guest posts. No, we do not pay for them nor do we accept payment for them.

Please note: We only schedule one guest post per month on a first submitted, first scheduled basis. New submissions may not be scheduled to post for up to 3, or even more, months.

We expect them to be relevant to our topics of interest and audience and something fresh to us so search our previous blog posts.

For us to consider a guest post please provide all of the following:

  1. 1-2 story ideas that are relevant for our site and audience and not something we’ve already written
  2. 1-2 sentence detailed summary about each
  3. 1-2 samples of your work elsewhere

Send query to Amie (at) SafeRide4Kids.com with the subject line Blog query for SR4K.

If you query us without the above information and subject line or via any other method, we will not respond.

Now Scheduling Guest Posts For:

  • September 2018
    • Theme: CPS Week/car seat safety (guest post pending)
  • November 2018
    • Theme: TBD
  • December 2018
    • Theme: Holiday/Winter

If you are looking for story ideas, here’s a few we want:

  • New rules for hot car deaths warning system
  • History of seat belts and what difference they’ve made (special look at how they fit women especially pregnant women)
  • Besides car seat safety, how else does Sweden have safer roads than the US
  • Car seat laws for older kids, are they working?
  • Free range parenting, pros and cons
  • 10 Strange things you’ll want during pregnancy, ie tennis balls, the right bra, extra tissues
  • New mommy safe driving, are new moms more prone to crashes? Why?
  • Financial and emotional cost of miscarriages with mention how Tummy Shield could reduce at least some.

If we agree on one of your story ideas we will need:

  1. a unique post at least 1,000 words (we will check for duplicate copy)
  2. a short text-only bio
  3. a separate 620 pixel wide horizontal image as a JPG file to go with the post (a copy of the image in a word doc does not suffice)
  4. photo credit information (name and stock agency if it’s a stock photo)

Assuming the article:

  • is found relevant to our primarily American audience and our subject matter,
  • something we can be in integrity with,
  • uses proper spelling and grammar,
  • is interesting, informative and/or entertaining,
  • passes duplicate content check,

we will add it to our editorial schedule at a suitable time.

We reserve the right to edit all guest posts, including links. The links need to be relevant to the information. If the links seem like too many or inappropriate or spammy, we will delete and/or change the links. Remember our audience is 90% US so resource links need to be to US businesses and resources. You can link to your international business in your bio.

We will add at least one internal link. It will be appreciated if you add an internal link as you see fit in your post.

If accepted and posted, Safe Ride 4 Kids owns the content of the blog post. You are welcome to link to the post from your site or other sites but you need permission from Safe Ride 4 Kids in order to reuse the post elsewhere.

We also may request reciprocity (link or article), so please let us know if that’s possible and from which site.
