Team Vittles likes to provide useful content on our chosen passion. We can't do it all ourselves, so we recruit guest bloggers. If you have a passion and some experience writing about topics that fit in with Team Vittles mission, drop us a line and we'll see if you've got...the right stuff.

  1. All articles must be original, unstolen content not published in other outlets.
    • Should you wish to reuse the content elsewhere, we're totally cool with that. Please open the republication with a line similar to “As seen on TeamVittles.org September 29, 2017”
  2. Posts should generally be 750 words or more. The solidity of the content is more important, but the post should be long enough to be substantive but generally short enough to read in one sitting.
    • Lengthy manifestos should be discussed with your TeamVittles contact before publication. We love to read as much as anybody else, but ain’t nobody got time for that.
  3. They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder. We say it makes the heart forgetful. We like our bloggers to commit to a monthly post at a minimum. We’re flexible. Heck, some of our team have genetic conditions that practically turn them into circus performers.

  4. Proofread your post to be sure its writed in good English.
    • An Evelyn Woodhead Speed Reading reference would go here, if I could come up with a good one.
  5. Our site is great, but we recognize that there may be some useful information that exists in the wild. Links to external sites are fine, but should be germane to the content of the post, most of the time.
    • No anchor links. How lame.
  6. We like pictures of kitties as much as anyone. We also like more pictures of kitties even better. That said, images may be used in blog posts, but should be used sparingly and be appropriately attributed when applicable(Librarians! Hello!).
    • We do encourage you to use an image at the top of your post to help set the tone. Not a requirement, but a suggestion.
  7. Strangely, we do not require any specific format for citing sources referenced or used in the creation of your blog post. Do, however, fact check and cite your sources where appropriate. This site is run by librarians after all. Failure to comply will result in some serious shushing.

  8. Content on TeamVittles.org should be informative as well as engaging. We encourage you to inject humor and personality into your writing as appropriate. Be bold, interesting and human. It is easy to get bogged down in food insecurity issues. It’s not heavy, it’s our mission. Not all posts will lend themselves to this particular guideline, but we want you to feel free to be yourself as you write.

  9. The Monkees belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Just sayin’.
These guidelines were largely stolen from http://www.iacquire.com/blog/guest-post-guidelines.
Except for number 9. 9 is just common sense.
