WE ARE LOOKING FOR MONTHLY GUEST BLOGGERS
Atomic Mommy Press, LLC and Atomic Mommy (the blog) is interested in working with all writers; you do not have to be a parent or have a family to be published on our site.
We only accept previously unpublished content, plagiarism-free, and original work. There are no exceptions to this rule!
Our content aims to provide insightful value to the parenting community. We publish a wide range of topics, and topic choice is up to you. With that said, final topic approval is required prior to being published on our site. If you’re not sure what topics are welcome, please read some of our articles to get a better idea. Hint: your topic should provide some kind of value to the parenting community.
All guest bloggers are not offered pay. Instead we offer to cover the expenses associated with marketing your article, publishing you (even as a newbie blogger), and will link back to your sites and social media. However, if you are pitching us for pay, be sure to include that in your email along with your pitch (see rules below).
The Benefits of Being an Unpaid Guest Blogger
Atomic Mommy will link back to your business, social media, and websites. Your articles will be sent out to thousands of our email subscribers, as well as promoted and heavily marketed on all of our social media sites. You will be given the links to each article and you will be allowed to promote your articles on your social media as well. You will be given your own byline, and we will handle all of the SEO, editing, and marketing expenses. If and when your articles generate a certain number of page views per month, you may be eligible to receive a paid assignment.
For Those Looking To Join Our Team
When pitching to become a part of our content contribution team, keep in mind the following notes:
If approved to be on our team, you will be required to provide one article per week. Submissions are due every Wednesday. Word count for articles should be between 500 – 1,000 words. Every person wishing to be on our content contribution team, must email us 3 links to their most recent published written works, along with a first article to be considered as your interview for the position. Send submissions to [email protected] and please allow 2-4 weeks for a response. Make sure your article is attached as a Google Doc or Word Doc format.
If you are welcomed to the team, you will be required to sign a writing guidelines agreement and an independent freelance contract, before any of your articles can be published on our site. Both documents will describe in detail your obligations to the brand and company, as well as compensation.
For Those Pitching For Paid Freelance Work
If you do not want to guest post on our site without pay, you must tell us in your initial email. Your subject line should read as follows: Paid Freelance Pitch – Topic- First and Last Name. This will help us identify where to send your article. Please understand that we have several editors in different departments who review and accept/reject each article that comes in. We ask you to please be patient with us, as our turn around time is anywhere between 2 and 4 weeks. If you haven’t received a response from us after 4 weeks, please feel free to send us a gentle reminder. We reserve the right to reject any pitch that does not meet our brand’s requirements. We do respond to everyone regardless of whether you’ve been accepted or rejected. Offer of pay is at the sole discretion of the Editor-in-Chief, and will be determined by number of words and quality of work.
How to Submit
Please submit your articles by emailing [email protected] with the subject line written as follows: GUEST BLOGGER PITCH – First Name and Last Name – Content Section Desired
Please include in your email, an introduction to who you are, 3 previously published works, your social media links, your blog or website link, and which content section you would like to be considered for. If you have a resume, please include that as well.
