Drought Smart Plants is accepting Guest Posts

Are you a gardener or plant lover?  DSP is now accepting guest posts related to the focus of this site, which is all about succulents and drought resistant plants and gardens - write an article to be published under your own byline.

Write For This Site - Drought Smart Plants now accepts guest posts!

Your article will be considered if it's between 700 and 2000 words, grammatically correct and free of typographical errors and spelling mistakes and is unique content.

Need help with grammar and spelling?  The two tools I rely on for helping me to be as clear and succinct as possible are Hemingway App and Grammarly.  Try their free versions and see if you agree.

Only those articles on topics such as dry gardening, drought tolerant plants or xeriscaping will be considered. Please do not think that this means broad gardening topics, or unrelated topics such as vermin control.

Contact me and I will send a pdf list of some excellent article keywords.

You will also need to include a bio of around 150 words with one link to your site or blog, and include your photo or logo.

Important Criteria;

  • Article must be written from your own perspective, using your own knowledge and experiences. 

  • Images that you have taken, not stock photos. Google gives preference to unique images.

  • Article must not be copied, plagiarized or published anywhere else on the web or in print.  You must own the copyright to this work.

  • The link in your bio will be a follow link.

  • Your article must be a minimum of 700 words.

  • I'll include up to three editorial links to other resources. Unfortunately, after several instances of broken destination links, I've removed this perk. If you like, add links to other pages on this website as references.

Please note - duplicate content hurts us all.  It's against Googles guidelines of good webmastering. 

If your article is found to be published on other sites, it will be immediately removed along with any backlinks. This offer is not meant just to gain an inbound link to your website or blog.  

Please make sure that any article you submit to Drought Smart Plants is original and will be published solely here.

Also note; most of the visitors to this site are in North America.  Therefore, please do not ask me to publish your article if you're in another country, especially if you're just doing it for the link.

Do not abuse this privilege. 

In addition, your article runs the risk of not being published if I have to re-write it, remove typographical errors or make any other revisions. 

If you don't want to do the work to make it complete, and save me from savagely editing it, don't submit it here.  There are probably other websites that will go to that much effort, but it's not this one.

Please remember that I'm a solo operator - there is no 'team' of editors that I can pass this off to.  Make it easy on all of us!

To recap;

  • You must be located in North America
  • Your article must be unique
  • Photos are essential (no stock pictures, please)
