Guest posts on our blog
DriveitHOME occasionally features posts from guest bloggers and accepts submissions. We are looking for engaging topics in the world of teen driving that focus on parent education.
Before you submit your idea, please note: DriveitHOME™ and the National Safety Council (NSC) will not accept guest blog submissions that promote a product or organizations not affiliated with NSC. This includes posts with promotions of businesses or services and/or links to business websites including but not limited to: law offices and legal services, insurance companies, automotive repair and supply businesses, addiction consuling and treatment, driving monitoring apps and consumer advocacy services.
Some tips to remeber when sumbitting a post or pitching an idea:
The DriveitHOME™ blog targets parents. The tone should be conversational and structured as a discussion, not a lecture. Try to keep posts under 500 words and focused on a single topic. We will not accept broad pitches. For example, we already know—and have blogged about—the best ways to keep your teen drivers safe. The best pitches will include very specific ideas that never have been addressed on our blog (teens and texting has been covered many times already).
If accepted, your submission will be added to our editorial calendar and we will inform you of the date on which it will be published. We will contact you for a bief bio (20-25 words) and any photos you may wish to include (a headshot and 1-2 photos related to your post would be ideal). NSC does not pay its guest bloggers and reserves the right to edit or decline to use submissions. Editing may be done for grammatical or technical accuracy.
