Frequently Asked Questions

Will I Receive Compensation For My Post?

No, we do not pay for guest contributions as we see this as a form of promoting your work to a new audience.

How Will I Know If My Post Will Be Published?

Post requests are not guaranteed. We will do our best to respond quickly. Our creative team reviews submissions in the order received. We unfortunately cannot respond to all requests. If we decide to pursue your idea, we’ll let you know.

Can I Share My Post Once It's Been Published?

Of course! We strongly advise you to share your post through your personal network along with any blog sites you may run or own! When sharing on social media, be sure to tag @thankthemedley!

What Kind Of Content Will You Not Publish? 

While we welcome stories of all kinds, we want to ensure that all content is consistent with our tone and brand messaging. We likely will not select content that:

  • Has been shared or published elsewhere.

  • Includes promotional or affiliate links.

  • Is judgmental and may make readers feel attacked. Aims to divide instead of connecting and unifying people.

What If My Post Is Not Accepted?

We unfortunately cannot respond to all submission requests. If we decide to pursue your idea, we’ll let you know. Please allow our creative team up to 4 weeks to review and decide. If you don’t hear from us after 4 weeks, your submission was not selected.
