So, you want to write for the 360Learning blog? We couldn’t be happier.
That’s what Collaborative Learning is all about, after all: sharing knowledge, working together to fix problems, and going further than we thought we could, collectively. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts and stories—and neither can our 50k newsletter subscribers.
We hold our blog to high editorial standards, so don't be discouraged if we come back to you with some suggested edits, or if your first draft doesn't make it through the process. Because we receive so many submissions, we need to be selective when choosing which submissions to move forward with. For this reason, even if we approve an outline, we won't be able to greenlight a draft if significant changes would be required before publication.
To give your submission the best shot at getting published, you’ll find our simple steps for submitting a guest post proposal. But first, let’s get to a few frequently asked questions:
Our main audiences are L&D and HR professionals, but also C-level execs and general managers. They love all things learning, management, career growth, and company culture.
We have two main categories on our blog:
Here are some examples:
We will include do-follow links to websites to cite the source of relevant facts, figures, or information mentioned in your article, or to link to your bio or contact information as a guest writer.
If links in your article point to untrustworthy content or are overly promotional, they will be flagged and removed during the editing process. So please be mindful of who you’re linking to, and where.
Step 1: Submit an outline for approval. (We don’t accept pre-written drafts).
If your outline is approved, you can move on to:
Step 2: Writing a draft of your guest post.
Once you submit your draft, one of our Content Managers will review it. If only minor edits are required, (or if the article is ready for publication as is) we'll communicate our suggested changes or suggest a publication date. If at this stage the draft doesn't seem like the right fit for our blog (the article isn't written for the right audience, the content isn't original enough or is overly self-promotional, or the quality of the writing is below our standard), we will have to turn down the submission.
If your post gets through the editing process, then it’s showtime for your article!
We’ll find a slot in our editorial calendar for publication, usually anywhere from 1 to 8 weeks after the draft is finalized. We’ll be sure to send you the live link so you can share on social media, with your friends, family, and pets!
So, nothing left to do but check out our blog and start getting inspired!
