Guest Posting

If you have something to say about freshwater fish, we’d love to hear it! But we do have some things to cover before you send us your article.

So, first thing’s first: we don’t pay. And it’s not that we don’t want to pay, it’s that we’re a Ramen noodle startup. And if you don’t know what that means…

you could say I'm broke gif

But we will allow up to two links back to your site; one in your author bio and one well-placed (and completely relevant and helpful) link within the body of your article. We do, however, reserve the right to remove one or both of them at any time if the site doesn’t fit our standards.

Additionally, we are willing to republish blog posts that were originally run on your site – with a few modifications, of course – provided you don’t plan on running them on sites aside from TA and your own.

What We’re Looking For

Right now, we’re accepting featured-type posts on the site in the 800+ word range. Featured posts are anything that’s not a care sheet or review, basically. If you’re short on ideas, here are a few coveted ones we just don’t have the time to write but would love to run:

  • How To Set Up A Successful Community Tank
  • Why Betta Sororities Don’t Work
  • Sustainable Fishkeeping
  • DIY Fish Projects Recipes
  • Biotopes

But, of course, we’re open to other suggestions as well!

How & What To Submit

Please submit the entire article (or URL to the article) as well as a 2 – 3 sentence author bio to [email protected] Unfortunately, we’re unable to respond to requests we’re not interested in pursuing, but if we are interested we’ll try to get in touch with 7 days of your submission.

Depending on our editorial and how much we need to edit the article, it may take a week to two months for us to run your content. We schedule a lot of content weeks in advance, so we appreciate your patience on this, but know we’ll email you once your article is live.

If you submit to us and don’t hear from us, here are the likely reasons why:

  • It was boring. Cookie-cutter articles aren’t going to work for us.
  • There were tons of typos. We just don’t have the time to edit heavily – or much at all, really.
  • We already covered it on the site or we wouldn’t want to cover it. If you’re unsure about what we cover, you can search the site to get an idea.
  • It was KW or link stuffed, didn’t fit our content standards, or didn’t meet our word count expectations.
  • You didn’t send us the finished article, you sent a pitch. And we don’t have time to see an unfinished project and decide if we want to follow through on it regardless of how it turns out.
