Blog Submission Guidelines
**Topic list updated 1/18**
Thanks for your interest in helping out with the TakeLessons Blog! Our goal is to publish meaningful articles, guides, and resources that will really make an impact on readers — and we need your help and expertise to make them awesome!
Why write for us?
By helping us out with the blog, you’ll be sharing your expertise with potential students and families (more than 200,000 visits per month) browsing the website, plus you’ll earn extra exposure as a TakeLessons instructor! Posts are also shared on our social media channels, and select articles will be used in email marketing campaigns.
On top of that, if your article is published, you’ll earn $50!
How Does it Work?
Our Editorial Team plans out the guides and articles we’ll be creating on a monthly basis. We have specific topics that we need help with, which are listed here. This might mean helping us with research or copy for an infographic, or writing full articles. Priority will go to teachers who can help with those topics.
You’re also welcome to pitch your own ideas, which we look at as we’re doing our planning. Please keep in mind that we’re looking for strong ideas that present something relevant to students, but hasn’t been overdone. (For example, an article about the “benefits of taking music lessons” wouldn’t be accepted, as we’ve already covered that several times!)
Writing Your Article
Published posts will appear on the TakeLessons Teacher Blog, tagged with the category you teach. We promote all articles on our social media accounts, and our top articles are also featured in email campaigns and additional promotions.
When we’ve published your article, we’ll give you the link for where to find it. We encourage you to promote your post on your social channels, and add it to your TakeLessons profile so potential students can see it!
