I’m always looking for guest posts, and contributors with fresh voices and something new to say. I’d love to have you write for Perfection Pending!
My mission is simple: I want real moms to have a place to share their stories.
I want the heartfelt essay, the positive parenting post, the lists of funny stuff your kids do and say, the parenting tip that has made your life easier, or a recipe that your kid will actually eat.
In other words, we want to hear what real moms like you are doing to survive and thrive in your imperfect parenting journey. We also are open to posts regarding current events if you can bring a new, personal angle to it that applies to parenting.
Here’s how it works:
First, join my FB group for perfection pending contributors (even if you haven’t published with me yet)
FOR ORIGINAL POSTS:
I want to make this worth your time, and give you a little spending cash too! I love helping new bloggers or aspiring writers grow by helping you promote your own blog in a bio and links back to your best stuff while promoting your post across all my social media platforms.
I also will pay for original pieces as follows (pageviews calculated for the first 30 days only):
• 0-1K views: $20.00
• 1K – 2K views: $25.00
• 2K – 3K views: $30.00
• 3K-4K views: $40.00
• 4K+ views: $75.00
Writers grant Perfection Pending exclusive rights to original work for a period of 60 days. Your article can’t be published anywhere else (online or print) for 60 days after publication. After the 60 days, you may republish content as long as a direct link is included in the beginning paragraph of the article that states: This article was originally published on Perfection Pending, with a link back to the original article.
FOR SYNDICATED POSTS:
If you’d like to syndicate previously published work on Perfection Pending, we’re happy to do that. We cannot compensate for those at this time, but it’s still a great way to gain new followers, and have your own website promoted. It’s a great way to get your words out to more people, and to reach a bigger audience. Perfection Pending has 100K+ views per month and a combined social media following of over 100,000 followers, and we’re growing every day. We love to help promote you!
Here are some things you should do before submitting:
1. Poke around Perfection Pending and see what kind of articles we share. Posts with bad language will not be accepted.
2. If you can answer yes to one or more of these questions, then we want to see your post!
Does my post have a clear purpose and direction?
Does my post teach something?
Is it inspiring or starting a conversation?
Does it offer useful advice that all parents need to hear?
Am I encouraging parents with my post?
Do I have a unique perspective that someone may have never thought of?
Am I making someone (other than my mom) laugh?
3. EDIT!! An occasional typo can be overlooked, but if you piece requires lots of re-working or editing, we’ll have to send it back to you with suggestions.
4. DO NOT include attachments with your submissions. Simply copy and paste your completed post into the body of the email along with a headshot and bio with your social media links.
5. SUBMIT VIA EMAIL TO: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please allow up to two weeks for a response to your submission. (It will probably be much quicker)
Include in your submission if the post will be original (not published anywhere else, even your own blog) or syndicated (previously published, not eligible for pay).
You must be able to receive payment via PayPal if you’re going to submit an original post.
I do not run posts promoting a product or service and will not include promotional links in guest posts. To submit a sponsored post promoting a product or service, or to have me craft one for publication on the site, please see our work with me page.
