Our guidelines are simple.
We accept blog posts from members and non-members, but the AAFD Bylaws only allow Supporting (supplier) Members to market products and services through the AAFD. This means that only Supporting Members can include live links to their organization in their guest blog post. Non-member guest bloggers can include their name, title, affiliations and email address at the end of their blog post without live links.
We will review all submissions. AAFD members will receive priority posting privileges. If the article meets our standards, we will approve it to post and will give you an estimated publishing date. If it doesn’t meet our standards, we may provide suggested edits or let you know it’s not a good fit for our blog. Occasionally we may not have the time to respond immediately, so please be patient when waiting for a response.
Please be aware that the AAFD may choose not to endorse independently written blogs and that we will not take responsibility for any inaccurate information included in an independent blog post. The author is responsible for any and all conflicts that may arise from the publishing of independently written blogs.
Those who wish to be a guest writer for the AAFD’s Franchise Voice Blog can submit a topic for consideration OR submit a completed blog post using the form below.
