We’re always looking for great new ideas, recipes, and foodie fodder here at Chew News.  Interested in writing for us?  It’s easy!  If you would like to submit a guest post to this blog, follow the instructions below for consideration. Only guest posts that meet these criteria will be considered for publishing.

  • The post must be useful to the readers of this blog.
  • The post must be grammatically correct and well-written.
  • The post must not include marketing-related links and must not be entirely self-promotional.
  • The post may include links to your website and blog in a brief author’s bio (approximately 3 sentences), which will be published at the end of the guest post.

Submission Guidelines

Guest posts must be original and may not have been published elsewhere online already. All submissions will be verified for originality using a tool such as Copyscape.com or Plagium.com.

Ad Sharing Guidelines

Anyone can place 1 ad inside their post.  Ads will consist of either a google AdSense code or other ad code provider of similar esteem, or 1 image link to a food-related product the author has for sale (cookbook, kitchen gadgets, etc.)  Sizes may vary, but let’s be reasonable here kids… we want the article to shine.

If you are planning on just doing one submission, we will use the guest blogger author account. You can still put your name and website/ social links, and they will be featured at the bottom of the post. Submissions will be by email and will consist of a word document or text file with any images attached to the email.  Send to james@chewnews.com

To get an author account, and to display your links in a more highlighted fashion, you must submit a minimum of 3 posts. You will be given an author account, and you can then post more articles whenever you wish.  You can register for an author account or login.  Default registration is as a subscriber, so let us know you intend to write for us and we’ll upgrade you to an author after you have submitted 3 posts.

To be a regular contributor, you must post and maintain minimum of 3 articles per month. You will be given an author account and be displayed in various sections around the site, including the homepage. We are looking at rotating ads In the future, and displayed ads will be rotated between contributors’ adsense accounts. If you post a higher percentage then others, your ads will display at a higher percentage. If you fall below the minimum post amount, you will lose your ad rotation status, but continue to have your author account.  You can register for an author account or login.  Default registration is as a subscriber, so let us know you intend to write for us and we’ll upgrade you to a contributor.

Need some ideas?

The following types of articles would be great additions to Chew News!

  • As this is a Food News site, we would love your opinions on trending food news, food activism, cool new gadgets and anything you feel are important in the culinary world.  Part of the reason this site was created was to give a venue to people (like myself) who have a niche website but have so much more to say!  Bring it!
  • We love infographics.  Visuals make us happy.  Please give us your opinion on the study… is it valid or complete BS
  • We want to expand the boundaries.  Maybe stay away from the “Fast Food restaurant ABC opens in a new location” type drivel you see on many sites.  That’s just boring and makes me want to die a little.
  • Food Art!  We support galleries.


RECIPE LISTS:  Yes please.  Again, this is a trend site.  So have a look around and see what’s trending.  If you need some sources, check the “What’s cooking: Recipes” section of this site, or ask me and I’ll give you a few great places to go.  Compile a list of 3-5 of your favorite recipes for a dish.  Images and short descriptions of why you like this particular recipe would be great.  Here’s the best part.  Shamelessly promote your own!  Either add the full recipe or a tasty description and link to your site.  Here’s an example:  Stuffing.  One may be made with sausage, another with cranberry, the third, to be stuffed inside ToFuTurkey…  Then explain why your family eats your grandma’s recipe, packed with bacon.  Now the reader wins, as they have some popular sources for a recipe plus a personal recommendation from you about why yours s the best!

SINGLE RECIPES: Even Better!  You’ll get your recipe shared through all of our connections and newsletters.

We’re always happy to hear your suggestions, so let us know what you’d like to do!
