We have gotten questions a time or two about guest blogs and whether or not we accept submissions. The answer is YES!
If you are interested in guest blogging for us, we will happily accept your submission to our gmail: discordandrhymeblog (at) gmail (dot) com. Please put “Guest Blog” in the subject line.
We prefer files be sent to us in Word, using Times New Roman 12pt font, and while we all make the occasional grammatical error (or simply ignore the rules), we cannot accept submissions that are written in “text”, substituting “U” for “you”, R for “are”, etc. Additionally, we prefer to keep blogs to about 1500 words in length or less. However, if you are covering a subject that requires more length, we can work with this by splitting the blog into smaller posts.
If we find your submission to be something that we can post – which by the way – it almost always is – we will be back in contact with you to let you know it has been accepted. At that time, we will ask you to send us a thumbnail photo of yourself, how you wish to be credited in your byline, and a 5 or 6 line bio of yourself. If you need suggestions on any of these things, we recommend you do a search on Daily Duranie for guest blogs. That should point you in the proper direction.
We’re generally asked about topics and whether or not we’ll deviate from New Wave. We would say perhaps, with some appropriate limitations. We have a wide variety of musical interests, and with that we will give due consideration to a vast landscape of bands and artists as well experiences within that fandom, meaning anything from meet ups, to conventions, or even your own feelings about being a fan. Point being, we’re open minded, and we’re really looking for like-minded people with a passion for music. Have an idea – we are ready to listen/read/respond!
