A list of sites to submit home decor, craft and DIY projects/blog posts

I am taking a little pause in the home decorating category for this post and looking to help out my fellow home decor bloggers today. I have compiled a list of sites to submit home decor, craft and DIY projects/blog posts! 

Comprehensive list of sites to submit home decor, craft and DIY projects. Simpler ways to increase page views and gain new readers to your blog!

This has taken me three years of knowing the business, making contacts and countless hours googling every single phrase you can think of. I got together an up-to-date and detailed list of the best places to submit home decor, craft and DIY content. When I first started my blog this is how I got people to see my blog and ideas. No one was coming to my blog organically, so I had to pull them all in one by one. I still submit to some of these now for features. It is a great way to circulate content, meet other people in the blogging and home decorating niche, and get some good Google juice with links from larger sites coming back to you. Submitting your blog posts and projects to other sites can help you get seen by a larger audience, which will increase your page views. Even if you submit something and it is denied you can use it as a learning experience to see ways you can improve your content for next time.

I do want to stress that before you every submit to a web site be sure to do your own research. What kind of content do they share? Make sure it is relevant or similar to what you create, otherwise it will be a waste of time for you and them. You cant the biggest bang for your buck with any feature, and sharing content that is already proven to be a hit with a particular web sites readers is a good thing. Pay attention to their social media accounts, this is a great indicator on what the readers like and how much this community has with engagement. What is their sharing policy? Each website will have particular rules on content shared and requirements. Some even have specific steps to submit images or descriptions. Be sure to follow these rules, as that gives you a better chance to have your work featured. What is their policy on ownership of shared content? This is a big one, when first starting out with blogging I blindly submitted my projects and posts to every website that took it. I never paid attention to ownership rights. Most websites allow you to remain owner of the content you submit. But some have it worded tricky to actually allow them to use your ideas and images in anyway they want. This can mean simply social media shares, adding you to a round-up collage, or as big as selling your images for profit. Each blogger will find what their personal preference is for this. There is no right or wrong for what you feel is a good fit for your blog and your content.

Here is the list of sites to submit home decor, craft and DIY projects/blog posts –

  • DIY idea center – Must have an account to submit content. Picture and description needed, provide blog post link. Will select some features to be featured in the newsletter.

  • Remodelaholic –  There is a few different ways to be featured here. They are also very involved in the blogging community and collaborate with fellow bloggers pretty frequently.

  • Better homes and gardens, I did it! – Must send an email inquiry with feature project.

  • Better homes & gardens, Do it yourself magazine – There is a general submission area with a few different options to submit content. Obviously with the name of the publication they are very picky with content they feature.

  • Stumbleupon – Sign up for an account then stumble your posts. For every one of your posts you stumble be sure to stumble other blog posts as well. They do not like you to just stumble your content and will flag your account if this is done.

  • Family handyman – Scroll to the bottom of the page and look for Content submission. Then you have to create an account. Once created you can submit projects to be featured.

  • Craft Gawker – Must have an account to submit content. Picture and description needed, provide blog post link. Add tags with relevant content. They are very picky on picture requirements, only submit your best or you will not be approved. All Gawker sites show one image and a direct link to your blog post.

  • Dwelling Gawker – Same as Craft Gawker, but for general home ideas. Use Canva, Pic Monkey, Lightroom or photoshop to improve your images and a chance for a feature

  • Craft gossip – Picture and description needed, share a direct link to blog post

  • All free Holiday crafts –  Must have an account to submit content. Picture and description needed, share a direct link to blog post

  • Apartment Therapy – There are many different categorys to choose from to be featured, furniture makeover, room reveal, project.. all are listed and you can choose which one best fits your needs. Depending on what category you chose it what determines what information is needed. Some jsut an image and description, others just pictures and some all pictures and step-by-step instructions. Here is the home tour link and here is the project submission link.

  • Hometalk – Must have a profile to submit content. You submit a project with a few images and a general description of the project. The key is to get people to click over to your site for more information. They do share features in newsletters and on their Facebook page, which will get your more page views. They like projects with a good before picture.

  • iheart organizing – You can send an email to be considered for the readers space submission. This is an organized theme website so the decor should be based in that niche.

  • Design sponge – You must send an email with the information for the project or room submission.

  • Curbly – This one is a little different, they will pay you for a project. But you must submit the idea and it will be share in full on their site. They just want an idea of what you will create, this is more of a guest writer option instead of a strictly promotional standpoint.

  • Inspired by this – This has a lot of requirements for the submission process. It has a beautiful website and a great community to submit to if you meet the requirements for submission.

  • The everyday girl – You can email a story idea for possible consideration to be featured.

As I said, this is all information that you can find on your own. I am not sharing any insider secrets, just trying to help some fellow home decor bloggers out. It took me a long time to get this list together and I used it on my own for years. I figured it would be valuable to other bloggers as well. I have been amazed by the support and camaraderie in the blogging world, and felt that my list of sites to submit home decor, craft and DIY projects/blog posts can be helpful to others. If you are a blogging newbie you will find your way with your blog, deciding what is best for your brand. Places you may have submitted to in the past might not work, maybe overtime their policies are not right for you. The beauty in blogging is that there is no right or wrong way to do it. Simply sharing your ideas, putting good content out there… that is it! All of the rest will come with time.

If you know of a website I did not include let me know about it in the comments. I will update this when any major changes happen.
