One of the themes we’ve tried to instill in our studio is that of community. We see Frameable Faces not just as the studio you can visit at the Orchard Mall, but as all of us – especially our clients who really are the Frameable Faces (or #Frameables as we like to tweet them). As our blog evolves and grows we thought it would be a splendid idea to get more of you involved and so the “Quest for Guests” idea was born! We would like to open this up just to Frameables (our clients) for starters and see where it goes, but the idea is to have someone write a guest post for our blog. There are a couple of basic parameters involved:
1. The article does not have to be about Frameable Faces nor does it need to be photography related – it can be but it doesn’t have to be.
2. The article should provide some value whether it’s informative, or simply entertaining. We prefer not to go overly heavy or serious. If you have your own blog or business we definitely want to highlight that! But here’s the key – don’t make the post a commercial or sales pitch for your business. Write an article that will help people – demonstrate your expertise with some helpful tips. If you have a blog of your own which is simply your outlet for your thoughts then give us a couple of your thoughts or even a good story. If you are a fan of our blog, don’t have a business of your own or a blog but feel you have something to add to the conversation feel free to do that too!
3. The article should ideally be 500-800 words and include at least one related image (if you are struggling with the image part let us know and we can help you). Also include a short 2-3 sentence bio, a bio image (125×125 pixels is a good guide but we can help you with that too), a good title for your post, and links you want us to include (website, fb, twitter etc.).
4. Send your article in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll scan it for typos etc. and let you know if there are any minor changes before we post it. Keep in mind that dependent on the number of posts we receive and/or the subject matter we can’t guarantee that your post will be published. We hope you understand.
We are excited to see where this goes and we hope the Frameables will get to know each other a little better! We hope you will enjoy reading a guest post and that you will comment and join in!
