Contribute

I created Epic Gardening to help 10,000,000+ people learn how to grow their own food and incorporate plants into their lives. I can’t do it alone…I need your help.

If you have experience in edible gardening, houseplants, hydroponics, aquaponics, or any other aspect of growing plants, I’d love to have your expertise featured on the site.

I pay $40 for every contributor article that’s published on Epic Gardening.

What Type of Articles Do I Publish on Epic Gardening?

Epic Gardening is a site by gardeners, for gardeners…no matter what their skill level. Our readers love in-depth, practical how-to guides across a variety of plant care topics. Most importantly, you have to know your stuff. You need real-world experience in the topics you’re writing about to be published on Epic Gardening.

This means that if you want to contribute solely to push a product, service, or website, you’re not qualified to be a contributor. Feel free to contact me for advertising options though.

Article Ideas That Work

If you do want to write because you want to share your knowledge and expertise, here are a few ideas for the type of article that work best (and have a high chance of getting approved):

  • The steps you take to do or make something
  • Why do you think “X” is great and why people should try/do/have it too
  • Something you discovered that works surprisingly well and makes your life better
  • A concept you know well that you think a beginner would appreciate if you explain it

Tips to Get Your Article Approved

I don’t publish every article that I receive, only ones that fit the mission of Epic Gardening and meet my editorial standards. This means that I might approve your title or topic, but not approve the final draft due to the quality of the content.

To avoid this, keep these tips in mind when writing a piece:

  • Keep the reader in mind and be helpful
  • Make sure there isn’t a similar article already published on Epic Gardening by using the search bar
  • Be comprehensive and don’t leave any information out
  • Write in simple, concise langauge
  • Provide sources for your articles
  • Bonus: Provide original photos with your article

What is the Writer Pool?

Once or twice a month, I email out a list of topics to the Writer Pool. If you’re in the pool, you’ll get this list and will be able to select a topic to write about. Then, we’ll work together on the article and you’ll get paid for your work.

It’s a great way to contribute awesome gardening content to Epic Gardening on an ongoing basis. However, the approval process is strict – only dedicated gardeners with real-world experience will be allowed in the pool.
