Dreams Really DO Come True
Have you been looking for free blog sites that are all about quality content? Well, dreams really do come true and we think you have come to the right place. CTO offers a free blogging site platform for the writer trapped inside of you. And we believe we offer one of the best blog sites opportunities you will find anywhere. We love writers that are passionate about great food, everything organic, paleo dieting and healthy living that includes the coconut. If that's you and you have that writing thing covered, we might be your single greatest find today.
First, we really want to thank you for your interest in writing for Coco Treasure Organics. We love hearing from talented writers that take the time to write well researched extraordinary content. Now, before you fire up your rusty, dusty old IBM Selectric, please go get a cup of Joe, kick up your feet up and relax. As a blogger, you have worked hard to get this far, it's time for a little reward. Enjoy a sip, take a deep breath, slow down, and read what makes us unique. We are not just another one of those free blog sites that will accept anything. This is worth your time and investment. You have our Coco Treasure pinky promise.
Free Blog Sites - Off With Your Heads!
Although Coco Treasure Organics is all about healthy living, great food and of course the courageous coconut, there is also a bit of pirate in us. Sure, swashbuckling swords are great but pens rule the world. Maybe our sword fetish is just from binge watching Game of Thrones.
Anyway, those cute little coconuts, they lay down their lives by the millions every single day so we might enjoy the bounty that Mother Nature created. For our part, we gently coax the oil from the coconut to create the purest coconut oil on the planet, non plus ultra. Now that we and the coconuts have done our part, it's time for your contribution to the world. All the free blog sites of the world beware, we are about to add another wordsmith to our team.
We need your help to spread the word about the wonders of the cocos nucifera. Clearly, the pen is mightier than the sword but without our legion of passionate writers, the battle is lost. It's up to you to help communicate, educate and entertain the world with the 1000's of ways it's used for cooking, health, hair and skin care. Have a pet? We have the sweetest King Charles Spaniel named Maverick. If he could write, he would have plenty to say about how it sends his tail into a fur blur. He loves the taste but it makes his coat oh so soft as well. Cats and dogs love coconut oil and it has some benefits beyond taste. Maybe your could write about your Fido or Fifi and how they love coconut stuff? That idea is a freebie.
What's in it for you?
When published, we will link your content internally and begin to link the content to the world. It doesn't do anyone any good if the world can't hear your voice. Therefore, your content will be promoted through our social media channels to over 100,000 fans. That's amazing, yes? CTO is not like some of the free blog websites that accept poorly written "content". We are fun to work with but can be demanding. Proof is that we have a couple of writers that can hit these guidelines without breaking a sweat, it ain't so tough. The days of poorly written content with unsubstantiated claims being accepted and blasted across the internet through millions of free blog sites have gone the way of the iPhone Zero.
First, if you blast us with an email template and don't show that you know who we are and what we want, the email will be filed appropriately. In the days of old, that was called the "circular file", a trash can. Today I guess they call it the recycling bin. Regardless, the outcome is the same. As you can imagine, we get lots of spammy contacts wanting to write something. If you follow the masses with blind email templates, expect the expected. Be original and be rewarded with success. Don't forget to send your initial contact email to the appropriate address. If you read all this, I bet you will find it.
We will gladly accept content from you, writer extraordinaire, as long as the following guidelines are met.
Guest Post Guidelines
What's the best and most profitable thing to write? Well, truth be told it would be ransom notes. We no longer accept those so you might want to check with the FBI.
At Coco Treasure Organics, we want new, innovative, interesting, entertaining, engaging, well laid out, and organized content. Awesomeness scores YUGE. Think about the best things you have ever read and try to one up the style, quality and depth of that piece. Competition online is fierce from all those free blog sites. Remember "Norm" Peterson from the TV sitcom Cheers? Norm said, "It's a dog eat dog world out there and I'm wearing Milk-Bone underwear. " Let's not get torn up by the world, set your bar high.
The post must not be published on other blogs or websites. In other words, it must be 100% original. As a result, we check it against CopyScape initially and on an ongoing basis and will remove anything reposted elsewhere. We know how this works. Reposting dilutes the work we are going to be doing for you.
Read some of our blog articles to know our writing style. We like campy, entertaining, humorous and most importantly informative with facts to back up any claims. The truth and nothing but the truth so help me God.
Avoid repeating and repeating and repeating and repeating topics. There are literally hundreds of topics that you can write about. We like depth to the article and breadth in the subjects covered. So does Google and our fab fans.
Proofread the article twice or thrice. Microsoft Word will be your friend here. If lots of grammatical errors are detected, we won’t publish it. Would you? If English isn't your native tongue, go find a friendly native to proof it before submission.
There shouldn’t be links to other commercial sites, meaning sites that actually sell a product, especially coconut stuff. Blogs with advertising are acceptable. If possible, links should be redirected to guest post types too. We love backlinks from other high quality relevant sites. We are not looking for reciprocal links but links from unrelated sites to yours. If you have a great relationship with another site you can recommend, we are all ears. This is where you help us. You get gold stars, extra dessert and our backlink and social media heroes will reward you handsomely.
Articles that promote a competitor company’s product will not be considered. Duh. This should be general information about health, nutrition, organics, and recipes that are tested and have great original photos if possible. Remember we are all about coconut stuff. For your tested recipes, if you include the prep time, cook time, total time and nutrition info we have some cool tricks we do to get you another layer of exposure. Sometimes, as in this case, exposing yourself is a good thing.
Watch out for making claims that are unsubstantiated. Opinions are fine but they need to be backed up somehow. The internet is loaded with junk on free blog sites and simply referencing that trash won't cut it. Junk in, junk out. Referencing high quality sources adds credibility to your content. Don't be afraid to take that extra step, embrace it and be different.
No medical advice unless you are highly qualified please. The free blog sites are awash with junk written about the curative powers of the coconut. A lot is fact based, a lot is pure propaganda poop. There might be some evidence to support some of these claims but tread lightly here. Providing false hopes to desperate people that are suffering is beyond uncool. We refuse to be party to that fraud. Don't do it.
If you are a doctor and want to get a bit technical, that's cool. Some readers like the in depth stuff about how the body works. Just remember not to go overboard with the medical jargon. If you want to make medical claims, back it up with references that are high authority.
Although size matters and lengthy articles are preferred, those with at least 700 words will be considered. It's not about repeating yourself over and over again, it's about writing in depth about the topic. I could write 10,000 entertaining and informative words about a Q-Tip. You can too if you apply yourself as we know you can.
Toast Yoast because they can help out a plenty with the optimal optimization game. They have all the details available in their helpful article called, "How to use the content & SEO analysis of Yoast SEO."
Write to the general public and check your article against the Flesch score. That's Flesch not Flesh. Not familiar with Flesch scores? There is some great info regarding Flesch scores on the Yoast website. Shoot for a score above a 60.
When using images, please give credit to the owner or the source. We love beautiful original photos and you get the credits. You would be surprised what can be done with a smartphone. It doesn't take a giant professional camera to get this done. And don't forget those links that you came for in the first place. Please link to at least two posts to this blog/article or recipe. Remember, competitor links are a Bozo No No.
Title must be at least 40 characters. Try to write the title in a very compelling fashion. Boring doesn't cut it anymore. We don't want steak, we want sizzle.
Meta descriptions must not exceed 155 characters and should have a call to action. Again, write it in a compelling and inviting manner. Think what would cause someone glancing at it for 1/2 a second (that's how long you have) to want to read the article and then "click". Without the click your article disappears into a black hole.
Let's Get Personal - Author Bio
Include your author bio with at least 150 words of text. Feel free to include your social media (Twitter, Facebook and G+) account and your snapshot as long as you don't look like Shrek or Fiona.
If after reading all this you think we are a match, then email us without that worn out template everyone uses. Provide direct links to 2 or 3 actual articles you have written. Please don't just link to a site and hope we can find your work, we likely won't try. Provide a couple of article or recipe title ideas. If you unsure, we will work with you to come up with something that works for both of us.
And In Conclusion
Please email your initial content idea proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject should read “Coco Treasure Organics - Content Proposal". This is just an email detailing how you think we are a fit and your ideas for the content. If you want you can include some flattering comments about how great you think we are. Most solicitation emails include that so why stop now? Now don't start writing yet. That will come soon.
Allow 2 to 3 days for us to respond to your content request and ideas. Due to the bulk requests we receive daily, we won’t be able to communicate right away. If you do not hear from us in a week, feel free to ask us about the status of your submission. Honestly, perhaps we are simply ignoring you. lol If you emailed us something truly great and didn't forget the flattery, perhaps we just missed it. Hit us up again just to be sure.
After we accept your idea, we will unleash the power of the pen and let you do your writer thing. The final submission has to be in Word format for us to easily edit and review it. Also, please make sure that the photos you attach are optimized. The better it is done, the quicker we are publishing. Then you are on your way to your first Pulitzer Prize and worldwide fame and fortune.
