Thanks for your interest in writing a guest post or becoming a guest business law blogger for CommercialBlawg.

Please contact us here to find out how you can get published with us today.

Legal blogging & content marketing for business law firms

If you want to share high quality legal intelligence, including useful business/commercial legal knowledge and news, to wide audiences whether for content marketing, academic purposes or otherwise, here are some of the key things you should consider before submitting your post(s) for review by our moderators.

Why Publish Your Business & Commercial Blawg Posts Here?

There are many reasons why you would want to publish a guest business or commercial legal blog here or indeed join us as a permanent author:-

  • Reach over 10,000 of our followers on Twitter and a wide professional audience on other social networks including LinkedIn and Facebook for every one of your posts.
  • Get your content and your profile promoted on an established business law blogging website.
  • Share useful legal information to a large and varied legal and business community across the UK, US and beyond.
  • Get full credit when your blog post is published.

Editorial Guidelines for Law Blog Submissions

  • Blog posts should provide useful legal intelligence (useful articles, news posts and other relevant content) on commercial or business law and news. Our editors were formerly commercial lawyers and can tell which posts are great and which are going to waste our time.
  • Specify the governing law of your article where appropriate or where certain cases were decided. For example, it may apply to the whole of the UK, the whole of the United States or just certain States, or it may apply EU-wide.
  • Blog posts can be of any length but should ideally be over 500 words.
  • Original blog posts are preferred although we are also open to republishing content already published elsewhere if of value to our readership.
  • Use subheadings where appropriate using the H1, H2 and H3 tagging functions.
  • Posts for CommercialBlawg are welcome from commercial lawyers, barristers, law firms, law graduates, law students and also non-lawyers including any business professionals, particularly those looking to ask questions about the application of business law for their organisations.
  • Respect the copyright in the work of others.
  • Include video and images where relevant if you have the rights to use them. YouTube videos, for instance, can easily be embedded in posts to help improve your posts.
  • Include links to authoritative sources to support your material.
  • Include a link to your own website or blog from within your post but please avoid being overly self-promotional – we aim to publish useful commercial law information and its application to businesses.
  • If posting affiliate links, please make readers aware that they are such.
  • Include a short professional bio at the beginning or end of your posts.
  • Share your submission with your contacts through your social networks.

What we do not publish

  • We do not publish generic articles unrelated to law and of no value to our readers.
  • We do not publish articles already published elsewhere unless of value to our readers.

Other Guest Law Blogging Policy Information

  • We reserve the right to reject any blog submitted on reasonable grounds e.g. the post was not on a relevant area of law.
  • We reserve the right to make changes – Please do not be offended if we suggest amendments to your post. We will notify your of any major changes.
  • We may add internal links where helpful for readers.
  • Authors are permitted to republish their guest law blog posts elsewhere – if so a link to the original post is preferred.
  • We may add a link to your website or blog in the blogroll section of the site where appropriate and will notify you of such additions.
