GOOD Upworthy

You got the guest post – which means you’re doing something right, now prove it. Starting a conversation that really gets people talking, pretty much guarantees you’ll get invited to post again. It’s also no secret that most comments come from a successful close. Like Pandora, one of the best things about guest blogging is that it exposes you to something that’s new based on something familiar. Unfortunately, many guest posters will sacrifice their own voice and do everything they can to sound exactly like the blog they’re posting on.

With a core team of only 20 staff writers, we reach over 25 million unique readers every month. Writers who are used to reaching a few thousand people elsewhere reach millions here. We build intelligence about how to reach people into every decision, every edit, and every system. At Upworthy, our stories are shared at a rate of between six and 30 times that of other media companies.
