Who Writes for GolfGurls?

The people who write for the GolfGurls Blog are the future pillars of the GolfGurls community. If you work in the golfing industry as a pro, an instructor, a merchant, a designer, a player, — we want your insight.

In other words, we’re looking for contributors who are constantly seeking out new ways to look at the world of golf, but also happen to love sharing that knowledge with like-minded folks.

What we’re not looking for: Freelance writers trying to sell something.

What GolfGurl Blogs About: We like to keep things simple. That’s why we limit our content to six major topic areas:

▪ Golf News and Trends

▪ Golf Equipment, the latest, the best, what’s best to buy, what’s best to avoid

▪ Golf Instruction and Fitness

▪ Golf Travel and Destinations

▪ Golf Fashions and Trends

▪ Golf Rules, Etiquette and On the Course Advice

These are the big content anchors that hold GolfGurls on course.

In addition to your tips and advice, we encourage you to share your personal anecdotes, experiences, and stories. For example, if a certain experience with a client taught you something that changed the way you think about the entire business, that’s something our community will relate to.

We’re Well Written: Our desired content level on the GolfGurls blog is anywhere from Beginner to Intermediate. Perhaps the best word is “approachable.” Focus on keeping your content entertaining, informative, and succinct.

We encourage you to break down complex ideas, give step-by-step instructions, and tell stories that help illustrate your ideas. Be interesting.

The only ironclad rule we can give you is that your content must be 100% original.

We Are Quality: Our target word count is exactly how many words it takes to get your point across in a blog post — no more, no less. We are looking for posts that give value to our readers. Share what you know, cover new ground, tell readers what you’ve discovered… and run spell check for heaven sakes.

When it comes to your writing style, remember to keep it conversational. Break down your ideas into jargon-free, easy-to-read sentences that any beginner level reader can engage with. Remember that this is a blog, so the better users can understand, the more they’ll appreciate your content.

What’s in it for YOU?: The GolfGurls Blog is a great place to build your personal brand, and add to your online expertise. We are looking for writers who are constantly innovating and always willing to share ideas and resources. Each day, we’re telling the story of this community, which both our readers and contributors are a part of.

As a contributor, we want to help you tell your story. We’ll provide you with an opportunity to link back to your site in each article and our social team will make you feel like an online marketing celebrity.

However, we do require helpful, informative content… not sales copy. We want to sell YOU on the GolfGurls blog… not your products and services.

In addition to linking to your website in your author bio, you’ll be plugging into the hyperactive community of golfers that visit the site each day looking for fresh, useful content.

Guest Blogger Submission Flow: All GolfGurls content will get one last check through by our managing editor to check for grammar, punctuation, etc. If there are any issues that need to be resolved, we’ll contact you via email. Think you’ve got the goods to become a GolfGurls guest contributor?
