Write for Bella Forcella

Bella Forcella is a lifestyle blog for grown-ups. Topics covered are beauty, interiors, food, lifestyle in general, issues which affect the readers and things which inspire them. As the blog grows I’d like to showcase a range of voices to my readers – different perspectives, diverse experiences, new adventures – which is why I’m looking for guest writers to create exciting blog posts just for Bella Forcella. 

Bella Forcella’s Audience 
If you write for Bella Forcella you will be delivering tailored content to a defined niche market - Bella Forcella is aimed at women aged between 27 and 50 who are likely to be well educated and have a decent level of disposable income. For a fuller picture of why I started the blog and the ethos behind it, see About Bella Forcella.

A Very Bella Post 
I pride myself on offering thought-provoking and original content. A guest post shouldn't be a piece which has previously been published on anther blog, or a reworking thereof. 

Bella Forcella would welcome articles on any of the above topics – humorous or serious, informational or frivolous – as long as they are relevant, interesting and entertaining. Length-wise I look to write a minimum of 300 words if there are plenty of high-quality and engaging photographs to a maximum of 1,500 words for a more essay-style piece. 

Photographs are important on a lifestyle blog, but only where they are relevant, and should be clear, attractive and owned by you (also, no stock photography, please). 

To ensure that all Bella Forcella content is “on brand”, I reserve the right to edit any articles or photographs submitted for publication, however as the author you will have the final agreement on the piece. 

Please note that articles should not be an advertisement or promotion of any product or service which you sell or represent. However, if you have a brand which you think fits the Bella Forcella ethos and would like to work with me, please e-mail me at rachel@bellaforcella.com
