I’ve been desperately trying to find time to update this blog over the last few weeks, but have finally realised that I need to admit defeat. My day job has become incredibly busy lately and I simply don’t have the emotional bandwidth to spend the amount of spare time required to keep this blog ticking over. I’m in desperate need of some downtime and something’s got to give. So… it’s time for a bit of a summer holiday from blogging.
As you will have noticed, over the last couple of weeks I have reposted a few pieces I originally wrote for BitchBuzz and have also had a few guest bloggers in. These types of updates will continue until I manage to find the time and inspiration to continue my own writing, so I am currently looking for ideas for posts from suitable guest bloggers. As my site is a personal blog with a unique voice – essentially, my voice! – I am extremely careful about the guest posts I publish. I only accept submissions from trusted friends or bloggers who can provide samples of their writing and a summary of the type of post they wish to write. I do not accept content from strangers who are merely looking to publicise a product or service. If you are simply looking to share your writing with the world, email me with the following information:
- Tell me a bit about yourself and why you want a guest post on my site
- Describe your idea(s) for a potential post topic, with details of your particular angle
- Tell me which category you think it would fit into on Rarely Wears Lipstick
- Provide links to other examples of your writing
I can’t promise to accept all proposed guest posts, but I will get back to you within a few days to let you know either way. Please note that, unfortunately, I am not in a position to be able to offer payment for content. As for those of you who prefer to read rather than write… well, I do hope you find these posts interesting. Normal service will be resumed by September.
