The Lazy Historian


I am currently accepting sponsorship in the form of banner ads and sponsored posts.

  • Products/services must be related to history, education or a related product/service.
  • All sponsored content will be labelled as sponsored.
  • If your email does not include the product/service you want promoted, it will be discarded without a reply.

Please email me for pricing.

Sponsored post pitches related to dating, gambling/casinos or any other product/service unrelated to history will be discarded without a reply. 

Will you review my book?

I’m not currently accepting book review requests. (My TBR is scary huge.)

Did you find an error?

I strive for historical accuracy. I want to know if you found an error in any of my blog posts. You can let me know by emailing me. Thanks in advance.

Love writing about history?

If you’re interested in contributing to The Lazy Historian, I would love to hear from you!

Guest Post Submission Guidelines

Please include the following in your submission:

  • at least one blog post idea you’d like to write about (do NOT send completed articles)
  • an author bio to go at the bottom of your post and any links you want included there (3-4 sentences max)
  • a headshot (if you would like it included in your post)

If you have a writing portfolio, please include the link so I can take a look.

Before submitting, please review:

  • Posts on this blog are written in a casual style and are fairly short (500-700 words is fine but I’m flexible). I accept articles, book reviews (non-fiction only please), and interviews of a historical nature. Please check out what other posts I have featured on the site if you aren’t sure if your post fits the style.
  • I get quite a few guest post submissions. I respond to every submission that follows the guidelines but sometimes it takes me a few weeks to get to them.
  • Unfortunately, I can not pay for guest posts. Credit will be given in a bio and a link back to your website.
  • I have the right to edit your post content and title.
  • Emails pitching blog post topics not related to history will be ignored.
  • If I accept a post topic and I get an article that is just an unpaid sponsored article advertising your product, I will probably tell you to rewrite it.
  • Since I don’t have a lot of time to devote to editing your post, I pay a lot of attention to how your pitch email is written. If your email does not suggest a strong grasp of English, I will probably not accept your pitch.

Still looking to submit? Great! Please email me at: with the subject title “Guest Post Pitch.” I look forward to hearing from you.
