Guest Post Giveaway

You know you want to take one home.

As some of you know, about six months ago I shut down my freelance writing site (notice the blank home page) and have let some real good articles on my old site lay dormant without many people visiting them.

At first I thought about submitting them for guest posts but as they were published once on my old site, I didn’t believe it was fair to whomever I was submitting them to, pre-published as they were. This is why I started republishing some of them on my new site. I republished the articles that matched the spirit and themes of Unready and Willing.

But I thought that instead of publishing them here, I could ask anyone if they wanted them.

So here’s my offer: If you want to publish one of my old articles I will delete them from my old site, and the only place on the web the article will appear is on your site as a guest post. All I ask for is a byline and a link back to this blog.

As I haven’t gone to the trouble of deleting all the pages from my old site yet, you can still find them at links below. If you want one of them you can contact me or just leave a comment below and I’ll contact you through twitter or your own website. I don’t care how big or small your blog may be.  I’ll send you the content and I’ll delete the page on the original site. Also, I’ll remove the article from this list.
