I've just been given the opportunity to get in at the start of something great, Sewmantra has given me the chance to be a guest blogger on their site. Woohoo, so excited to get started and have some awesome projects I've been sat on for a few weeks (don't worry pin free!)
They are still looking for a select few contributors so I wanted to spread the word to my lovely readers (get a load of me, people actually read my insane ramblings!) if you are a crafty type just blogging, or blogging & selling too, then this could be just what you need to promote your online presence and not to mention the chance for more virtual hobnobbing and general intermingling with yours truly.
Here's the info you'll need to submit to be considered:
These contributors need to be able to submit crafty/artsy ideas, How To/DIY projects, and articles about their media at least twice a month. Your submissions will be accompanied by an "About the Author" blurb with links to your website, blog or online shop.
Furthermore, each contributor will be given ad space on the side bar of the blog which includes a logo (1 inch square) and a link to their shop/website/blog.
The blog has great traffic and will increase your exposure. There are a few guidelines to follow, however, the process overall is easy peasey.
•1. You must be a member (individuals or collectives) of the indie craft or hand made community. Which means, you make what you sell. Large scale operations or manufactures are not eligible. We may request proof of this.
•2. You must have at least one website, blog or other online presence we can link to.
•3. Your submissions must be sent in English.
•4. Anyone on planet earth over the age of 18 may submit.
•5. All submissions must be G-Rated and acceptable for a family friendly atmosphere.
•6. We welcome all skill levels, media and genres - as long as you meet the qualification requirements (#s 1-5 above), you may apply.
How It Works:
•1. Interested persons or collectives should send an email to email@example.com; Subject Line: "Blog Contributor"
•2. In your email, please tell us about your creative process, your creations/wares and yourself or collective. Please also tell us what timezone you are in and the best way to contact you.
•3. You may also attach up to 4 photos of your work and up to 3 links which will allow our editors to review additional samples of your work.
•4. Once we receive your submission, our editors will review your info. We will contact you within 10 business days to let you know if you have been accepted as a contributor.
Additional Loose Ends:
If you have questions about this opportunity, please send your queries to firstname.lastname@example.org We will be accepting up to 10 contributors.
