Don’t pitch in your post, please.
Don’t use Healthful Papa to sell your goods and services. You can do that on your website. Your post should help the reader.
Providing your expertise and helping others will garner you a great following. Followers will listen to what you have to say and buy anything you sell.
That’s called branding. This is pretty much what guest post is all about nowadays as Google started to crack on guest posting.

SEO Writing tips
- Please keep paragraphs short. No more than 3 sentences.

- Add authoritative sources to your arguments, research, studies.
- If you’re providing images, name the file as if you’re describing what’s in the photo. IMG_001 or picture1 is terrible.

Meta descriptions or excerpts
Summarize the article in 160 characters or 20 words.
Please provide authoritative links to support your opinions. Otherwise, it’s just your theoretical opinion.
- Please link directly to the source and not the homepage or other pages.
- All external links in the body will be a do-follow as long as it’s related and helps the reader. Not just some spammy link to score a backlink to your site.
