 Expectations of Contributors

Although The 104 Homestead appreciates your writing in your own voice and style, we have some expectations for posts submitted to the site. These expectations include the following:

Original Content

All posts submitted must be new and original. Posts must be exclusive to The 104 Homestead (not on your own blog or a guest posted elsewhere). You can certainly offer a teaser on your own site, so long as it directs readers to your guest post here.

AI content will not be accepted.

Word Count

Posts should be between 800 and 3,000 words. Anything exceeding 3,000 words may be broken into two posts that will be published a week apart from each other.

Proficient Writing Skills

I, of all people, know that editing errors occur, but submitted posts should be free from spelling and grammatical mistakes and should require little editing.

Post Ownership

The post you write for The 104 Homestead, as do the photographs you include, belongs completely to you. I ask that you do not use an exact duplicate of the post on your own blog or any other blog, as that will hurt all those involved in Google’s eyes.


Photos are only required with tutorial and recipe posts but are always welcome for other topics as well.

Although not required, it would be great if you would promote your post on social media.  This promotion will greatly benefit both of us.


In addition to revenue from your affiliate links, you will be paid $50 when your post goes live. This amount may increase if you become a good fit and a regular contributor.
