I was just dropping in a quick line to know, if I could send some great article ideas your way for a guest post at your website ?

If you like my suggested ideas, I can then provide you high-quality FREE CONTENT/ARTICLE. In return, I would expect just a favor of a backlink from within the main body of the article.

Do let me know if I can interest you with some great topic ideas?

Best Regards,

Hello there,

With COVID making a slow departure (fingers crossed!), many families are still finding themselves cooped up together due to virtual learning, quarantine restrictions or general precautions. And unfortunately, many of us have run out of ways to stay sane and creative amidst this stress.

What do you think about an article with tips on how to deal with frequent issues that result from being cooped up together? I’ll use a professional but friendly tone in the article to share best practices for making it through the toughest minutes and hours of the day.

Would you be interested in this article?

Thank you!
Gwen Payne

I’m interested in sharing my real estate and investment experience with those considering starting their own vacation rental business.

Will you consider posting my resource guide for first-time vacation rental property investors if I send it over?

Thank you!

Many people are coming out of the pandemic ready to make a big change, and some of them are looking at business ownership as an option.

I thought it might be helpful to offer an overview of the types of businesses that are the easiest to start and what steps prospective entrepreneurs should take to get moving toward their business ownership dreams.

Any interest in allowing me to write this article for your website?

Thank you,
Nicola Reid

I’m interested in writing for your site, if you’re open to that.

The topic I have in mind is fairly general (please weigh in if you have a new direction, I’m open to changes!): best practices for entrepreneurs and small business owners.

The guide itself will be free of charge, so please let me know if you’re interested when you get a free moment.

Have a great day and thank you for your time,
Carleen Moore
