Thank you for your interest in contributing to Homesteading How To.

It’s our belief that we all benefit from collaboration, and we value sharing information on homesteading, self-sufficiency, and simple living from a variety of sources with our readers.


We are particularly interested in practical how-to content and personal-experience stories but also welcome informative content on a wide range topics related to homesteading, self-sufficiency, and simple living.

Submitted content should be your original (non-plagiarized) work not previously or currently posted or published elsewhere. We will remove without notice any accepted content we later discovered to be copied, plagiarized, and/or posted/published elsewhere.

While we may accept posts of varying lengths, we prefer articles of 1,000 – 1,500 words.

We do not allow guest posts to contain affiliate links, but resource and reference links are allowed and encouraged.

We alter submitted content as little as possible, but we do reserve the right to edit for usage, clarity, and length when necessary.

We also reserve the right to add internal links to related content found on homesteadinghowto.com (our own site) if we feel it will benefit our readers.

Please Note:

  • We do not accept Sponsored Content
  • We will not attach new outbound links to existing content


We are happy to accept images with your article, but this is not required.

If submitted, however, images must be royalty- and copyright-free, should be relevant to your written content, and should include proper source credit.

Please note that Featured Image size on our site is 1,000 x 300.

We reserve the right to resize submitted images for optimization purposes when necessary.

If you do not submit any, we will add relevant images and set a Feature Image for your article.

Content Promotion

Although we do not pay for guest posts, we do promote every article through our social media channels which includes our Facebook group with over 17,000 members.

Please include your author bio and a link to your website and/or social media accounts at the end of your post so our readers will know how to find you!
