Blog Submission Guidelines

Please note at this time we are NOT accepting guest posts from teachers, external freelancers or other websites/bloggers. 

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!

Why Write for Us?

By helping us out with our blog, you’ll be sharing your expertise with potential students and families 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!

Blog Guidelines

  • Aim for a length of 900-1,200 words. Some topics may call for longer articles or dividing the article into parts (we’ll work with you on this).
  • Do NOT write in the first person using words like “I,” “me,” or “my.” Instead, write from the standpoint of an educational and authoritative resource on the topic.
  • Articles must be your original work and not published elsewhere on the web.
  • Our Editorial Team reserves the right to edit your article, including grammar, spelling, and formatting.
  • Personal information, such as last names, email addresses, and personal websites are not permitted.

Writing Your Article

Published posts will appear on the TakeLessons Blog. 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!

**Please keep in mind that pitching and submitting an article does not guarantee payment. Acceptance is determined by the subject covered in the article and the overall quality of the article. You must have a live profile on to be eligible for payment.
