Here at Good Enough Mother we’re always on the lookout for distinctive voices and strong opinions – so if you fancy writing for us, we’d love to hear from you!
We’ll be posting plenty of Guest Postings over the coming months so if you have an idea for a piece just fill in the form below and the Good Enough Mother team will get back to you!
Before you jump into action here’s a few guidelines of what we ARE and AREN’T looking for!
1) ORIGINALITY: Whatever topic you choose to write about please try and bring a fresh perspective to the subject. If you think Mad Men is sexist, feel sorry for Tiger Woods or think fast food should be heavily taxed – tell us why. We want pieces to provoke reactions – so be controversial and tell us what’s REALLY on your mind.
2) NEW INFORMATION: If you want to send us a Top Tips list or an advice piece please make sure the information you’re giving out is different to what’s currently out there. Be ingenious and surprising – don’t tell us to drink 8 glasses of water a day or that smoking around kids is bad for them! Tell us things we DON’T know…
3) LENGTH: Please aim for between 750 and 1,000 word per posting. Any less is just too short for us and will feel more like a comment than an opinion piece…
4) HEADLINES: A catchy headline (and subheading if you choose) is key. So make sure your title really sells the piece and will make people want to read more…
5) EDITING: When we receive your final posting we might have to tweak a few words or edit it a little – normally for clarity. Please be understanding!
6) BIO: When you send your final piece to the team please also send a short bio of who you are and your background / personal life. Feel free to link to your own blog site in your bio…
7) PHOTO: We also like to see who our Guest Posters are so we’ll also ask you to send a great pic of yourself (the higher the resolution the better). So please have one ready. And smile!
Unfortunately we’re unable to pay for pieces at this stage – but Good Enough Mother is a high profile blog site – so your piece will receive a lot of attention. And of course spread the word to all your family and friends and let them know you’re online when your piece is up!
Thanks everyone – can’t wait to hear what you all come up with!
