Guest Writers and Their Stories
One of the best ways to make sure that more people get help is to attract guest writers. It’s those people, who have struggled and found solutions in their recovery that will touch others. Why? Because how I share the lessons I’ve learned in 28 years of abstinence-based recovery might not work for everyone. Or, the words that I use in my writing, might not touch a particular reader.
It’s in the subtle ways that we write that will touch a reader, and perhaps encourage them to give up drugs and alcohol and find a better life. While there are about 23 million people in recovery, there still aren’t enough of us writing about addiction and recovery to help all of those people, family, and friends who are still struggling.
From Addict 2 Advocate is a place for you to:
- Share your lessons
- Encourage another
- Offer solutions
- Make a difference in someone’s life
Readers Needs Your Distinct Voice
When guest writers share the same message that “Recovery Works”, the distinctive words that they use will help reach a wider audience. Too many people want to blog alone. Collaborative writing differs; more people write, and more people read. That means that more people read the message.
Try reflecting on this quote: “Collaboration begins with focusing on the collective good and not personal gain.” ― Jane Ripley, The message of “Recovery Works” is the important message. It’s the collective gain.
Guest Writers Help Someone Grow in Their Recovery
Regardless of how it’s said, or who says it, we’ve all got to work together to get the message out there.
From Addict 2 Advocate is growing, publishing guest writers, finding the best information out there to help people get and keep their recovery, and give people support, resources, and time-tested solutions for their problems.
But most importantly, From Addict 2 Advocate wants to give people the most important feeling of all — hope.
That’s why I want guest writers to share their stories. From Addict 2 Advocate needs your voice, story, and message of hope to continue spreading the word that recovery works to change lives, bring peace to families devastated by addiction, help children understand that their parents love them in spite of their actions, and that there are countless methods that work.
Why don’t you consider writing a guest post for From Addict 2 Advocate so there’s another voice reinforcing that “Recovery Works”.
