Interested in Posting Here?



Love to travel – even if only in a book?

Then, I need people just like you!

Pens on a World Mapa blog community for travelers, writers, and readers hosted by Morgan Tarpleyis looking for guests to submit posts ranging from a recent vacation or research trip to a review of a great novel set in a fascinating location, plus more.

Published or unpublishedyou’re welcome to submit! I’d love to start lining up posts for the future.

Interested? Please comment below with your name and email address.

Here at Pens on a World Map, I’ve been on a good bit of a blogging hiatus for many reasons, but I'm planning a relaunch for the first of the year, and I’d like to gain advice for my brainstorming.
I want this community to be a fun place for world travelers to gather and be able to experience other countries from your armchair.
Here are my suggested posting ideas. I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below.
  • Fun smorgasbord of a post with a brief vlog and little snippets of the week such as Song, Movie/TV Show, Book (aka What I’m Reading), Writing Tip, Bible Verse, Photo, News Article, etc.
  • A post about travel and/or writing
  • A book review
  • Brief guest post (between 350-500 words) highlighting a favorite travel experience including at least two photos
  • A brief Q&A for published authors about their latest book’s setting and research trip including at least two photos
Do you think these posting ideas are something you’d like? Are you drawn more to a particular one? Or do you have a suggestion for more or tweaking them? 

I’d love for any feedback! I’d really like this to be a blog that interests you.

Thanks and Happy Travels,

Morgan

  3. Great ideas, Morgan! I'd love to read short travelogues--a couple of highlights from each guest author. Just enough to give a taste of the place. (Hey...there's a rhyming title for you!) I'm going to Belize on a mission trip in November. Happy to be a guest blogger!
