About Being a Blogger
About Being a Blogger
workingmother.com is the digital hub for career-minded and entrepreneur moms. It's the perfect place to share your expertise @home and @work. It's a place for workmoms to share with moms and experts in the demands of work life to share their expertise with the working mom universe–us! Bloggers are given a national platform which they won't have on their own.
To become a blogger, you must register to become a site member. Members can comment on what they read, and will be signed up for special promotions etc. On the account page, you will find a checkbox that says: Become a Blogger.
That check box will generate a few fields to fill out and it will be sent to editors at workingmother.com who will vet the request. If everything is in order, you willl be given special permission to blog via email. You will then add your profile, can edit your photo and begin blogging. We encourage our workmom bloggers to add their Twitter handles to their profiles and be an active member of our social media community as well.
What's expected? Be clever!
Please write weekly but at least 2x a month.
Please check off tags (you’ll see) that reflect your topic to make your content sortable by our readers. Please use appropriate illustrations in your blogs. You can only post photos or graphics that you use or are free in the public domain. No Disney or Peanuts characters, please!
Please write your blogs in Word or other word document program, use the spelling program, and then paste your post into the Word box on the blog post field. Use standard spellings. The following are 2 words, not compound words: child care, day care, elder care, health care. (But like this when used to describe something: a child-care program.)
Look our for special email from the workingmother.com team. Bloggers are a mainstay of our community and we like to stay in touch!
If you have questions feel free to email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Can a blog be sponsored?
In general, disclosure means you must tell your audience if you are overtly mentioning or reviewing a product that you have received for free or have been contracted to pass along information about a product or service.
