Contributing Authors: Guest Blog Post Submission & Publishing Guidelines
Any flea-market-related experience you wish to share? A particularly amazing vintage shop you’ve visited recently? Maybe a few new haggling tips? Or how about a list of useful words & sentences in your own language that come handy when haggling at the flea market?
Writing for Flea Market Insiders is a great way to establish yourself as an expert in your field, grow your audience, and share your love for flea markets, vintage, antiques and design.
Our contributors receive love from our 75,000 monthly readers in the form of shares and comments, which is perfect for spreading their amazing work! Also, you get to collaborate with our editorial team, which is always an interesting and rewarding experience.
At Flea Market Insiders, we’re open to any topic, suggestion, or crazy ideas, as long as they’re related to flea markets, major antiques/design fairs & events, retro-modern technology products, vintage at home, and vintage/antiques-related home improvement tips. Just browse the blog a little bit, and you’ll understand what we have in mind.
If you would like to submit a guest post to this blog, follow the instructions below for consideration. Only guest posts that meet these criteria will be considered for publishing.
Blog post content
The post must be useful to the readers of this blog. Topics can vary, but should be related to flea market venues from around the world we haven’t covered yet, major antiques/design fairs & events, retro-modern technology products, vintage at home, and vintage/antiques-related home improvement tips. If you have a doubt about whether your topic fits within our editorial line, please touch base with us.
Content should be unique and targeted to Flea Market Insiders’ readers. No guest posts will be published that have already been published elsewhere online, as verified by Copyscape.com or Plagium.com. Also, once you’ve submitted your post to us, you may not publish this post anywhere else online (not on your own website or blog or anyone else’s).
When quoting others, please cite your sources accordingly.
All guest posts must be grammatically correct and free of spelling errors.
Guest posts must be written in the third person, with a neutral tone (not too serious/formal, not too informal, but relatable).
No guest posts may be self-promotional or include marketing links (see “Links” section below). And please don’t send us a press release.
Please keep your submission between 300 and 900 words .
Flea Market Insiders welcomes images and/or video to accompany guest blog posts. We prefer that images you provide are directly relevant to the post content.
If you are including pictures of people, please make sure you have their permission to use them.
If you’re borrowing an image, we require proper attribution to the creator of the image. Flickr is a great resource to find images to illustrate articles.

All guest posts may include a 2-3 sentence author bio, which will be published at the end of the guest post. 1-2 links to the author’s website, blog or other branded online destination may be included in the bio. This may not be an affiliate link or point to an affiliate site.
We do not allow links to your site within the post content unless it is directly related to the topic.
You may include SEO’d anchor tags to sites that are relevant to your post.
Excessive links or any links that appear spammy will be removed.
Flea Market Insiders reserves the right to make edits to the piece where necessary, to ensure the blog stays congruous with our values. Prior to publication of your guest blog post, we will make sure you agree with these changes.
If a guest post is inappropriate or needs improvement we’ll let you know and offer suggestions so that we can publish it in the future.
Guest post submissions are not a guarantee of publication. Flea Market Insiders reserves the right to refuse publication, remove blog content and change these guidelines as we see fit.
Guest posts that are approved by Flea Market Insiders’ editorial staff may be published without notice. We will, however, send you an email to let you know when your article is online. Alternatively, you can check the blog periodically to see if your post has been published.
