Guest Posting

I do accept guest posts to my website, but obviously at my own discretion. I am happy to accept posts from other travellers and bloggers, as well as companies (see advertising) and only those related to travel or backpacking. Obviously in exchange for your post and content, I will give you credit for the article in the form a link to your own website. Your guest post will appear under the ‘Guest Posts’ category, if it is a truly outstanding post, I may decide to feature it on the homepage.

If you would like to send me a guest post for review and possible submission, then please keep in mind the following guidelines:

  • The article needs to be 100% unique, and cannot be posted or published anywhere else either before or after it has been approved and published on Active Backpacker. I check this, so don’t bother copy/pasting someone else’s article and sending it over.
  • It needs to be OVER 450 words+ (unless you are including many of your own photographs, and it is more of a photography story then a textual one).
  • Needs to be written by someone fluent in English. It cannot be riddled with grammatical and spelling errors, and the article needs to read smoothly and have a point. The article must be related to Backpacking or Travel.
  • I reserve the right to edit and change the article for both readability and SEO reasons.

If I don’t think the post is going to suit the site or I don’t want to publish it for any reason at all, I will let you know as soon as possible so you can decide to publish it elsewhere. Feel free to touch base with me prior to actually submitting a guest post to see if I am interested in your idea.

What it comes down to is that I love receiving high quality guest posts from other backpackers and travellers. That’s what this site is all about after all, sharing experiences and stories and the joys of travel. So don’t be shy, and get in touch with me for whatever reason via e-mail (tom [at] – even if it’s just to get some advice.
