I love to support other bloggers and makers on Feast + West, through writing guest posts and conducting interviews. There are three ways you can contribute.
Please note: For any guest post, you must be an active blogger or business owner with a website. You must post frequently, preferably at least 4x/month or more and are active on social media. I respond to emails within 48 hours. Emailing me does not guarantee a feature on Feast + West. I have the right to decide what does and does not get published here. Contributor positions are non-paid opportunities at this time. Serious inquiries only.
Hidden Gems travel guides
Cities are filled with hidden gems, and many cities are hidden gems themselves. One of my goals with this blog has always been to highlight these destinations — but I can’t possibly visit them all myself. With your help, I’d like to give Feast + West readers a taste of off-the-beaten-path things to do, see and eat around the world through my travel guide series, Hidden Gems.
Each post will include an introduction to your chosen city, a list of 25+ spots, 8 or more photos and a short biography. I share one travel guide per week, on Thursdays. Your posts will be due to me at least two weeks in advance. I also promise to give you lots of social media love when your post goes live.
- You have a decent knowledge of your city or area. In other words, you know it well enough to show a visitor without A) doing much or any tourist attractions and B) visiting any chain restaurants or shops.
- Feast + West has never published a travel guide on this city and doesn’t have one planned either. For now, one per city/area. See here for past guides.
- You are an active blogger or business owner with a website. You post frequently, preferably at least 4x/month or more.
- You can commit to sharing 8-12 photos (or more — all your own) as well as writing your own text by the deadline we agree upon.
In particular, I would love to cover more cities in these areas, but I am willing to consider others on a case-by-case basis:
- Northeast / New England region
- Southwest region
- Pacific Northwest region
- Midwest region
