Thanks everyone for your comments on yesterday’s post! I’ve been thinking a lot about the “likeable” part of that discussion and I agree with you that “nice” doesn’t necessarily get you everywhere, so that’s not it. It’s about being more gracious everywhere I go. My Year of Grace. I like it.
This year I really want to expand my blog to include a lot more guest posting. And here is what I’m looking for. People already use Colour Me Happy as a resource to make colour decisions on everything from sofas to cabinet hardware to countertops, etc, so I’m looking for you, the expert in your niche to educate my readers even further.
If you are a commercial designer and you have a strong opinion on concrete floors and what colour they should be, we want to hear from you. If you specialize in decorating children’s rooms, you’ll have all kinds of opinions on everything from cribs to carpeting. And it could be as far out as you think all sofas should be pink. If you have a good argument for why, that would be totally fun!
We’re looking for posts that are useful and teach us something. Just like I said in this post Three ways to write a design blog people will read I want you to be bossy but charming and above all, interesting.
And it must be relevant to design and colour. If you are writing about the latest version of the ipad, well, that’s not it.
Anyone who subscribes to Copyblogger knows that it’s hard to distinguish which post is written by Brian (the owner) or by the many awesome contributors. So that’s the the way I want your guest post to look.
It’s okay if you happen to sell the product you are talking about; however, overt sales pitches thinly disguised as colour advice will not be considered (or I’ll have to come up with an advertising fee).
So email us and let us know what you’d like to write about and why you think your post would be a good fit and we’ll get back to you if we want to see more.
I want Colour Me Happy to be the best resource for colour advice in residential or commercial design and I need your help to accomplish that!
