Looking for Guest Humor Bloggers on You Amuse Me

Interested in bringing more attention to your humor writing? Then you should definitely write a guest post for my humor blog, You Amuse Me!

What we're looking for: Anything funny and original. List-based humor tends to be pretty popular. Funny pictures are also welcome. We're always open to new format ideas.

What you get: Kudos, endless love and devotion, your work in front of a quickly growing audience, a link to your website/blog/Facebook Page/Twitter account/smoke signal generator.

How to apply: Send an email to emma (at) youamuseme (dot) com with a link to some of your humor blog, a humor writing article, and/or a short sample (at least 250 words) of your writing.


Why are you looking for guest bloggers? Because blog love is what makes the world (or at least, the Internet) go around. Because I'd like to discover and share more humor writers. And because variety is fun!

What kind of content are you looking for? Humor can be subjective, but we're pretty open. Try and keep it from being too vulgar; we're okay if you wouldn't let your mom read it, but try and make it appropriate for the cool older sister who bought you your first beer. A good grasp of the English language is important.

Will my article be edited? We want to make sure that we present awesome stuff to our readers, so we may edit your article for clarity, spelling, grammar, etc.

Can I repost my article elsewhere? You Amuse Me isn't going to claim any rights to your article; however, Google hates copycats, and posting the exact same text in multiple places will suck the Google love out of all of them. Trust that we'll promote the hell out of it and give you all the views your heart desires, and provide links instead of reposting.

Do I need to provide images? If you can find Creative Commons licensed pictures (hint: do a Google search for images, go to Advanced search, and select "labeled for reuse" under Usage Rights), send me the link to the image URL (like this one of an adorable kitten), AND the link to the source (like this). If you have your own images, upload them to a site like Flickr, set the appropriate usage rights, and send me the links.

Feel free to ask questions in the comments section below!
