Guest Posts, Guest Blogging, and Link Trolling

July 25, 2012

As might (or might not) be clear from recent activity, we’re getting an increasing number of requests for guest postings, guest blogging, and links.

I’ll put up a permanent “policies” pages soonish, but for now:

  • Yes, we love love love guest posts. However, we are biased toward academics, academics in training, and cognate types. Just send one of us a nice email and we’ll see if we can make something happen.
  • We are extremely flattered when we get out-of-the-blue requests from people who want to guest post, but the procedure for bringing on guest bloggers is one of those “salami factory“things… and strangers just aren’t very likely to make it through the process.
  • We’ll blog stuff if (1) it falls within the extremely broad understanding that we have of our mandate, (2) it seems interesting, (3) the aim isn’t to flog some strictly commercial project, and (4) we remember to do it. That last one often proves a more difficult hurdle than responsible people would expect.
