Please read this page…you stand a good chance of your blog being accepted when you do!

We will give your inquiry priority if you have commented on other blog post(s).
**WE DO NOT WANT PUSHY WRITERS DEMANDING DEADLINES OR WHEN THEIR POSTS WILL BE UP!**
Why you may want to write for us
Over the last couple of years we have had about 75 different bloggers and writers that have contributed to the success of this website. Their names can be found on our Defying Mental Illness Wall of Honor’s List
You can be in this list too! (We want to get up to 100 quality bloggers on this site by mid 2018….it is up to YOU to make it happen).
Make sure you read what you need to do:
- Please let us know what you would like to blog by writing to us here. (Even if it is on something that is not on the website, we very much welcome diversity as long as it is line with our beliefs and policies. You can also find out more about us here).
- All images sent must have a source.
Only inquire if you are serious…We are serious about those who want to blog!
We are very unique in that we take our time to respond to about 95% of inquiries (when you take into consideration the volume too). However, we have found that having replied and requesting a blog post for review, we do not hear back from some inquirers! 🙁
Please ONLY inquire if you are serious about sending in a blog post and will also have one ready within 2 weeks. Please be considerate of others who genuinely want to write and are looking for a good platform to do so.
In order for us to continue making guest blogging available, please do not waste our time, and others, by not following through. Thank you.
If you do not send a post or reply (after we have accepted your offer for you to send a blog) and then request again 2 or more months later, you may not get a response!
The Review Process
Our review process is not tasking either. We accept 85% of posts we receive and these are usually from people who have taken time to read this page!!
We will prioritize looking into your submission if you comment on other post(s).
Please allow 10 working days before following up on any submitted posts.
