Would you like to share your advice or your lessons you have learned in life or business with readers of TheOtherSideof40.com? Well we are always looking for high quality, fresh content to share. Write for us!
If you have great advice to share with our readers that will motivate them to manifest their best life and succeed, then we are looking to feature you. Please have a browse through our website and have a look at the categories and articles that we cover.
We do not accept paid guest posts for promotion. We do not offer do-follow links. We work with writers to produce unique and highly valuable content. So, if you’re looking to pay us to have an article placed on our website, pay us to have a link placed in our articles or simply want to write one time for us to get a backlink, you have come to the wrong place.
Before submitting your article to us, please read our guidelines below to ensure the best chance of having your article reviewed and accepted.
What We Are Looking For
- Motivation, personal development and success is our focus. We like articles that fit within the self development genre: Aging, Beauty, Business, Education, Money, Relationships, and Travel.
- We like our articles to be informative, interesting, personal, and positive. We want to help our readers grow and feel inspired. Using long quotes and speeches for the bulk of your point or information is not something we are looking for.
- Please make sure your article is between 800-1200 words. We’re looking for clear and concise articles that deliver huge impact. So anything over 1500 words will not be reviewed.
- Please limit the formatting of your article when submitting. Plain text is preferred. Underline text, bold text, and italicized text isn’t needed. Our editors take care of the formatting of any article. We simply require you to submit the article with as little formatting as possible to make it easier in the editing and formatting process.
- Make your article interesting and easier to follow by including subheadings to break up your content. Make sure to submit your article in paragraph format. Short paragraphs make the article easier to read. If you need an example, have a look at any of our latest articles on our website and you will see how we like to format our content.
- Providing images with your content is not required. Our formatting team chooses what image we will use as the featured image of an article. So no need to spend time looking for an image for your article!
What We Are Not Looking For
- Our readers want originality and so do we. We will not accept already published content. Whether it has been published on your own personal blog, social media platforms including LinkedIn or Facebook, or with another publication, we will not consider it or review it. The article you submit to us has to be something new that has never been published online before.
- We do not accept articles submitted in PDF or HTML format. Please submit articles in a google doc and make sure that document is in edit mode when you share it with us! Google docs is the easiest and quickest way to have your article reviewed.
- We do not allow guest contributors to place links from outside websites within the body of the article, nor do we allow promotion or mention of a company, entrepreneur, product or service, including apps/tools. Our focus is to provide our readers with practical advice, not for us to promote you or the writer of the article. Links that you submit in your article will be removed should we decide to publish your article.
- You are allowed two links of your choice to be placed in your Author Bio. Make sure you link to them in the bio upon submission. Please understand, linking to a social media page is considered one link. So use your link choice wisely and strategically.

Ready to submit your article? Here’s how to go about it:
- Submit a completed final draft, with your author bio and email address you used to create a gravatar account in a Google Doc to write @ theothersideof40.com. Please make sure that Google Doc is shared with us in edit mode.
- Your author bio should be a short and to the point paragraph that is no more than 150 words. Make sure you provide your first and last name in the bio. We allow you to provide two links of your choice in your bio. It can be a link to your website and your eBook. It can be a link to your website and one social media page. It’s up to you. You get to choose what two links you think are most important to you. But make sure you include them in your bio upon submission.
- We ask that you set up a gravatar account using your email address so we have access to a current profile picture for your author bio – http://en.gravatar.com (Please provide us with the email address you used for your Gravatar account, not the profile link.)
- Make sure your article comes with a unique working title. Remember, the title is the first thing that catches the readers eye. Be creative but also keep in mind that you want your title to be inviting. All titles are reviewed in the publishing process. So if we think there is a better or more captivating title, we will change it.
