Apply to blog

Do you have an interesting trying to conceive, adoption, pregnancy or mommy blog? If so, we’d love for you to consider affiliating your blog with JustMommies. We’re looking for a few smart, dedicated bloggers to partner with us!

We have two roles for bloggers: Syndicated Blogger and Contributing Blogger. Both roles promote content in various ways across the site, but provide different options to bloggers depending on their experience, interest, goals, and desired level of involvement.

Syndicated Blogger

Becoming a Syndicated Blogger is a great way to get exposure and promote your blog through regular, frequent posting of your content on JustMommies.com. We publish certain posts from Syndicated Bloggers on a regular basis (at least 1-2 posts each week). Benefits include:

  • Your blog listed as a JustMommies Syndicated Blog on JustMommies.com, a highly-targeted site with over 4 million visitors each month
  • Exposure to a large, targeted audience through regular posting
  • Link back to your blog from a large, established website (good for SEO)
  • Regular JustMommies.com Homepage promotion and occasional features in JustMommies social media and in other site areas, introducing you to thousands of visitors in your target niche
  • EASY maintenance—once you are set up, very little ongoing attention is needed from you—great for busy moms!

Here’s what we look for from our bloggers. Bloggers who will:

  • Blog about topics that interest the JustMommies audience including: posts on trying to conceive, pregnancy, babies, toddlers, motherhood, crafts, recipes, and family life.
  • Blog regularly (at least 1-2 times a week)
  • Include pictures within their posts such as: recipe pictures, pictures of arts and crafts projects, and various other pictures that make a post look more appealing.

To apply:

1) You must have some TTC, pregnancy, parenting or mothering related posts on your blog, not just a personal blog or a personal website, unless you use your personal website to blog on. It’s easy to set a blog up for free on sites such as xanga, blogger, or livejournal, but you can use any service or program you like.

2) Please read our blogging guidelines to find out what we’re looking for in a blogger before you apply. Once you’ve set up your blog – or if you already have one – write on it exactly as if you were writing for JustMommies for at least 2 weeks/10 entries. This way you can get a feel for blogging for an audience, we can get a feel for your writing style/voice, and we can both see if it’s a good fit.

3) After you’ve blogged regularly for 2 weeks or have at least 10 entries, complete the following application and email it to: email@justmommies.com

If we don’t accept your application, you are welcome to ask for constructive criticism on how to improve your blog and reapply after four weeks.
