Guest Posting Guidelines

Thank you for considering submitting an article to thewahman. Guest posting has so many benefits to both the writer and also the person accepting the guest post. The main benefits include building your brand and networking with others in a similar niche. However, before any article is submitted or approved to be published on the website, each article must follow a set of guidelines. The guidelines set a standard to what gets accepted, and what unfortunately does not. This is why I have released guest posting guidelines, to help you submit a successful blog article.

Opportunities to guest post are specifically for personal bloggers only to gain exposure for their personal sites. This means that:

  • if you don’t have a blog don’t bother proposing an article
  • if you send me a generic email that is clearly marketing a commercial site, I will ignore it.

Thewahman will not offer any monetary compensation for guest posts.

Submission of a guest post does not guarantee its publication on

Generally if your submission benefits our readers it will be published.

Before you submit any posts for consideration, please take note of some of the following guidelines:

What Should my Guest Post Include?

  • Posts must be:
    • well written, clear and interesting
    • original content (not published anywhere else online).
      Posts may be run through Copyscape to ensure that they are original. The Hemingway App helps with the readability and general flow of the article.

Will I get a DoFollow link?

It depends.

We reserve the right to include any links as dofollow or nofollow. To increase your chance of a follow link, we request that you do a proper analysis of keywords, and propose something that thewahman can actually rank for.

If the article is of good quality, and brings in organic readers through Google, then we will place a follow link in the article.

According to Google, its best practice to include nofollow attributes on guest post content. Generally Google is smart and able to nofollow these links themselves. Don’t just take my word for it:
