Let's Hear it from the Girls!


Do you have an anecdote you want to share?
An experience to relate?

A funny tale?

A hard thing that's still happening?

Something on your heart?

None of the above but something burning to be in print?

Yes please.

With my Blended Blog besties, we're launching a fun new series.

I'd love for you to be part of the conversation.

 Here are the details:

Each week will have a different topic, if you’re feeling extra wordy, feel free to submit for more than one theme.

*DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION is at least a week before it is to be published.

 Our goal is to reach out to our reader community because we know there are some great voices out there with stories to be told.  Please pick a couple of topics that interest you and prepare a guest post.  

I will include a bio of your awesomeness and your words. I'm sorry to say that I'm not paid so neither will you but I would love to promote any links you have to your amazingness and send you free hugs. You don't have to be a blogger to participate!

Not super-desirable in this series...

1. Posts that sound like "do it my way 'cause it's the right way."
2. A blatant advertisement for a business (mentions are fine!!).
3. Meanies. You know who you are.
4. More than 7 swears per line. Ow, my ears.

To sum up, in the words of of the lovely Malyn, "I was never at the cool mom table but we made our own table and we're all invited."

You in?

Email me, Katie at or message me on Facebook or Instagram if you've got a great idea or an already formulated post!

You do NOT have to a professional blogger/writer/person. Just be yourself!

Can't wait to hear from YOU!
