- Digital Nomad Girls is a community of girls from all around the world, therefore we currently only accept articles written in English.
- All content must be written by you. We reserve the right to edit any content you submit.
- Articles must be a minimum of 800 words.
- We prefer a casual, positive, inspiring tone.
- Please spell check your work and make sure it is grammatically correct. If it requires a lot of editing it will be returned to you.
- We would really appreciate if you could use British English (colour instead of color etc)
- Please use headers to break up your text and make it easy to read
- Use paragraphs for readability and to help the flow of the text
Types of posts:
We have a few common types of blog posts, here are some examples:
- Destination of the Month – short overviews of nomad hotspots
- Listicles – Short and fun blog posts that list the Top X locations, coworking spaces, tools like here, here and here.
- Full Destination Guides – these take more work and could be co-written by multiple contributors. We’d LOVE more of these!
- Interviews – we interview nomad girls from around the world with interesting/unusual online jobs. If you are one or know one, please get in touch.
- Other posts! These types help to generate ideas but we’re open to other types of blog posts too, like photo essays etc.
Please DO NOT duplicate the post on your own blog or website as duplicate content is penalised by search engines. We understand that you’d like to share the post with your audience, so if you’d like to share it on your site please use only the first paragraph as an intro and then link to the published article.
When will my post be published?
You will be notified via email when your article is published. Please, note that we do have an editorial calendar so it probably won’t be published immediately.
Depending on the topic, theme or season, it may take a few weeks (or even months) for your post to go live.
We will let you know when it’s live, thank you for being patient in the meantime.
Once your post is live on our website, we will promote it on Facebook (page and/or group), Twitter, Pinterest, possibly Instagram and LinkedIn.
