Guest Post: Food Listicles, Recipes, & Snark Welcome
So, you decided you are interested in considering FFMP as a home for your (currently) homeless guest post. Wise choice – we’re glad you’re here. Here at FFMP we do enjoy collaborating with all sorts of people who share our passion for fast food.
If you have a knack for exceptional writing and are looking for a place with an audience of millions who want to bask in the glow of your writing prowess, look no further. It’s basically an everyday open mic around these parts.
We do have to warn you though – we have a few pointers to keep in mind before you get to the actual writing. Don’t worry, it’s nothing too major. Just some good old guest post guidelines – if you have written guest posts before, you know what’s coming up.
The rest of this page will mostly answer any questions you might have about the content we are looking for, as well as how the submission process works.
Please note: while we value your guest post pitches greatly, unfortunately, we can not guarantee a response to your submission due to the volume of requests we receive. But rest assured, if we want it, we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
The Bare Minimum that You Have to Meet
When the guest posts come pouring in, we take the time to evaluate them from an originality and authenticity standpoint. It simply won’t do if you decided to take the easy way out or you’re scraping cool content from the internet.
Now that we got that out of the way what can you write about?
We are interested in publishing any topic that our readers care about and this includes best listicles, menus, general articles about fast food, and even recipes!
We also look for a few things in the things we publish. And these things are:
- High-quality writing with original concepts, and written by the person submitting it (IE: no business submissions)
- Content that reflects the writing style and tone of FFMP – we like to think of ourselves as a pretty fun bunch, so that shouldn’t be a problem
- Minimum of 1,500 words
- US English
- The content will be owned by FFMP (which means you won’t be allowed to republish it anywhere else) and our team retains the right to edit it however we see fit
Keep in mind that we don’t guarantee the inclusion of all outbound links that come with the content you send us. We may remove some or swap for others.
Different Content Types We Accept
There are several content formats that visitors love seeing on FFMP.
Menus are the essence of FFMP – they are even included in our name! Unfortunately, we don’t have the physical manpower to accurately cover the menus of fast food joints in all 50 states so… Here’s where you come in. If you submit a menu, we don’t require too much, just plain hard data – products and prices mostly.
The submission of menus follows a slightly different process than the rest of the content we accept – you can only submit a menu here.
For our lists, we tend to make (and look for) the best of the best roundups of different kinds of fast food. Think “top ten most awesome chicken sandwiches” kind of thing. Here it’s advisable that you really know your fast food before starting to write a listicle, as we require utmost devotion to the matter at hand.
You can see some examples of the best listicles here:
- Best Fast Food Sides
- Best Chain Restaurant Steak Dinner in the US
- 11 Best Copycat Salad Dressings from Your Favorite Restaurants
We encourage people to prepare fast food-like food at home. Do you know how to make a BigMac, curly fries, or fried chicken? If your recipe is easy to follow and easy to make, we’d be happy to see it!
You can see some examples of recipes here:
Copycat Longhorn Parmesan-Crusted Chicken/Steak Recipe
The Cheesecake Factory’s Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe
General articles about fast food
We welcome any creative and well-researched articles about fast food. This can be related to nutrition, an amazing wacky burger that just got released, or an impressive example from overseas. This is one of our more creative categories, so it really doesn’t have many guidelines to follow – other than you giving us your best shot.
You can see some examples of such articles here:
8 Essential Tips For Eating Healthy Fast Food
Does a Burger King Dollar Menu Exist?
Some Big No-Nos
Here are some definite things that just won’t do for us:
- Anything that we’ve already covered before. Please do yourself a favor and run a search through our site to see that your topic has not been already covered.
- Offensive content
- Inaccurate data
- Things that have nothing to do with fast food or food in general
- Promotional material
