Getting Started

  • Register. If you’ve never written a blog post on Christian Web Trends, you’ll need to register a username.

  • Set-up a Gravatar.  Gravatar associates an image of your choosing with your email address. That image is displayed next to your bio.

Writing Your Guest Blog Post

  • Be on time.  If your post is scheduled for a specific date (part of the Monday guest blog series or other series), please have a draft of the blog post you’re writing posted to the blog by noon Eastern time the business day before it’s to be published. That means if you’re post is being published on Monday, have the draft submitted by noon Friday.
  • Include at least one image at the top right of your post. It’ll make your post look pretty and consistent with all the other posts. Here are 5 Sites that Provide Free Stock Images. If you look for images on, use the advanced search to find images with a Creative Commons-license and then include a link at the bottom of your post. We’ve not been able to figure out how to get WordPress to allow guest bloggers to upload and include images, so email me the image or a link to the image and we’ll take care of it. (BTW, if you know how to change the WordPress settings to allow authors to include images, please let us know.)
