Guest Post For The Happy Arkansan

I am SO happy that you want to submit a guest blog for The Happy Arkansan. This blog is my baby, but I recognize the importance of other voices to give my audience the clearest picture of college life and beyond.

What I'm Looking For

  • Original blog posts!
  • Long-form content that is at least 1,000 words long.
  • Spell/grammar checked articles. It doesn't have to be perfect, but it can't be awful.
  • Content broken down into easy to read paragraphs, with headers and subheaders. If you are unsure what this looks like, check out any of the content that I share on the blog.

Content I'm Looking For Right Now:

  • STEM (Science Technology Engineering, and Math)
  • Dating
  • Diversity In College/Career
  • Career
  • Travel On A Budget
  • Freelancing
  • Blogging Tips
  • Personal Finance
  • Fashion
  • Music
  • Lifestyle

I am also open to other topics if you think that they would relate to my college audience.

More About My Audience

According to Google Analytics, my audience is primarily made up of women (86%). The age groups most likely to read my content are:

  • 25-34 (43%)
  • 18-24 (23%)
  • 35-44 (17%)

My audience is heavily located in the United States as about 73% of my traffic comes from the US. Mostly all of my audience members speak some form of English. Over half of my traffic comes from mobile users which means that your content has to be formatted well for my mobile viewers. So far in 2019, I've received over 213,000+ page views as of May 25th.

What's In It For You?

Let Me Guest Blog On Your Website

I am always looking for opportunities to guest post on other people's websites! It doesn't matter if you have a small audience or a big audience, I would love to create some content for you.

About Working With Me On A Guest Post

I will write a piece for you that's 1,000-2,000 words. I write mostly about college, career, sorority life, millennial lifestyle, diversity, freelancing, blogging, etc. If you have seen it on this blog, chances are I can create something similar for your blog. I am currently trying to get a few guest post pieces out a month, so let me know if you want some original content written for your website.

**This is only a one-time thing for other bloggers. If you are a business or you want me to create content for your blog more than once, that would require a freelance relationship which I charge for starting at $200 an article.**

Here are a few pieces I have worked on in the past:
