Blogs By Christian Women is a Christian-based platform for self-expression and sharing of user-generated content. The goal of our service is to promote the spread of factual information that stimulates healthy conversations across a variety of topics and niches. In keeping aligned with our Christian values, to maintain the integrity of our service, editing, censoring, or rejecting user-generated content is foundational to the long-term success of our site, its Christian reputation, and the protection of our community members and readers.

Due to this, we have in place strict quality and guest post standards which limit the type of content that can be published or hosted on our site. While enforcing these standards at our discretion, we comply with all legal requirements and do not discriminate based on race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, or marital status.

We depend on our readers to flag user-generated content that they believe violates Content Policy. Violations should be reported by visiting our Contact Us page.

Guest Post Authors Guidelines

Author requested changes

Once we have accepted and published a guest post on our site, the author will no longer have the ability to make changes or remove the post. This includes changes to the content, images, links, authorship byline, or technical changes that directly impact SEO or other search engine processes.

Thus, it is critical that guest post authors review their work prior and they agree that they give up all future rights to modify or delete the content.
