If you’re the kind of person who can express yourself in written words I want you to guest post on my blog. 

I hate that term “guest post” it sounds so formal.

What I really want is to do is open up the doors of my home, (tell the dog to stop barking at you), sit you down on my couch, and fill you up with cake, and then listen to the stories you have about well.

I’d tell you as sat opposite me on the couch that sometimes I worry about using the word “well”. I worry that the word puts pressure on me, on us, to be perfect, to leave broken at the door, but the more I journey towards well, the more convinced I am that you can’t get to well without tearing back the veneer of “I’m alright”.

I’d ask you to tell me, between bites of cake, the first feeling that comes to mind when you hear the word well. And then we’d pass conversation back and forth and share stories full of hope, and grace, and Jesus. When it was time for you to go we’d both wish you could stay longer. If I was feeling really brave I might even offer to pray with you. Then I’d stand in the driveway holding the dog back as you backed out your car and think about when I’d get to see you again.

If you’re wondering what to write about I’m on a “well” journey this year. You can read more about that here

I’d love to share your stories about “well” on my site. It’s one of my favourite parts of blogging, the opportunity to enter into other peoples stories, to see something through someone else’s eyes.

So, what you would you add? What story would you tell? How does well challenge you? Is their one moment in your life when you {insert verb} well and  learnt something that changed you? How can “well” be holy?

What I'm looking for: 
Your post must be original, creative, and not previously published either on the web or in print.
Length: 400 – 800 words (preferred).
You agree not to publish it anywhere else, including your own blog or web site for the period of 3 months.  You may, however, post a brief “tease” or summary on your site that links to the post.
Along with your guest post idea please also submit:
- your website (if applicable - this isn't a requirement)
- Twitter and Facebook handle (if applicable - this also isn't a requirement)
- 2-3 sentences about yourself (your bio)

Editing
I will review your post for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.  If changes are needed, I will email the post back to you so that you may re-write.
I may provide a short introduction or conclusion to your post to provide context or the rationale as to why I think the post is important.

Submissons
Please email all submissions to wendy (at) ilovedevotionals.com. I will do my best to reply within three weeks.

I understand that it takes time and effort to write a blog post. However, I hold the right to not publish a post that has been sent to me. I usually accept a submission if it is well written and fits into the scope and vision of this blog, and will add value to my readers.
Also, if your post is not approved I may or may not say why it wasn’t. It honestly depends on how much time I have.
