- I do no longer accept posts about car-travelling, Family-travelling or regular lifestyle-articles that are not about travelling.
- If you want to promote ads and affiliate links, the post will be a sponsored post and will have a charge.
- To write a guest post you will have to get a username and a password from me where you can edit the text on WordPress. I do no longer accept Word documents or Google documents.
- Mark the email as “Guest post”. If it is not marked as that, I might ignore it as I get a lot of spam and unserious emails.

- If possible, provide a vertical Pinterest pin with the title of the blog post sized: 735px x 1102px. Can be done easily on canva.com. It is not a must, but it gives a lot more traffic.

- You should come back and answer comments on the blog post.
- The post will be published on a Monday or Tuesday at 8 am (GMT+1) Be aware that other people can be in line before your post, so please be patient and do not send me multiple emails, please wait up to a week. I get a lot of emails and I travel so I can’t always answer on the same day.
