We get a lot of inquiries about guest posting here in The Garage, so we thought we should clear a few things up.
First off, we love guest posts, but only if you are:
- A real person.
- A real car, bike, boat or whatever fan who thinks they have something great to share.
- An aspiring auto writer who is looking for a bit of exposure to build your own brand.
- An actual automotive writer who has something cool to share that doesn’t fit the mold of your regular outlet.
- A car club who wants to share cool stuff about a club event or even promote an upcoming event. In that case, send photos or video from last year’s event.
We do not want your guest post if you are:
- A company.
- A representative of a company looking to promote your online presence through link sharing.
- A content aggregator who creates content for clients as in the previous line.
- No, you can’t pay us to contribute your crappy content to in any way promote anyone’s product.
To all you businesses who do guest posts for your clients, you do know that the google still hates that stuff and punishes independent site owners for participating. We know you know and don’t give a shit. We know too, and we do give a shit because we have been burned before.
So, if you fit into the first description, by all means send us a message via our contact page. If not, then please don’t.
