Searching for Contributing Writers

We are moving into an interesting phase in our family life. In the past few months I've been working hard to built Creative2xmom as a place where mom's can gain encouragement and insight in our journey. I've also hoped to make this a place where we can all be encouraged in our day to day walks: walks with God, walks with our kids, and walks in relationships. And I'm excited for what it's become. However starting March 15th through the Easter, I'll be needing to take a step back, refresh, and focus on my family. You see my husband will be making a short term mission trip to China and I will be solo for this time. And with a 4 year old and 2 year old, my blogging time will have to be cut back.

I am currently looking for contributing writers for Creative2xmom. I have decided to open my blog up for some amazing ladies to contribute on a variety of topics that Creative2xmom usually touches on. I'm excited to hear your unique perspectives and insights on life. It will also give me a chance to step back and spend more time with my kids.

This is a win-win situation for contributing writers as well. It gives us both a chance to introduce our readers to new writers, and the contributing writers a chance to write for a new audience. It's a challenge to learn and grow in voice and ideas. It's a great way to increase your blog traffic and network with other bloggers.

Initially I'm looking for one-time guest posters. I'd like to fill 3-4 days in that time frame with contributing writers. In the future, I'm hoping to find guests bloggers whose commitment can range anywhere from once a month, up to once every 3 months.

Topics I'm most interested in include:

Real/Traditional/Nourishing foods (nutrition topics, as well as recipes)
Kitchen tips and techniques
Gardening and raising your own food
Infant, child care, and parenting (from a Christian perspective)
Homemaking and home management
Good stewardship/Natural living from a Christian perspective
Food preserving (canning, dehydrating, root cellars)
Homeschooling (particularly in young children)
Crafts and home decor
Strengthening your marriage
Party planning

If you have topics in mind that don't quite fit in, just ask me and I'll let you know what I think.

Please email me via the contact form if you're interested.

I think you'll find that I'm easy going to work with, and I would love to have you join the team at Creative2xmom!

This sounds GREAT! I just started my blog so there isnt too much over there to look at yet. When I write something I think you might be interested in I will definitely send it your way!

I am just starting several Christian parenting books and would be interested in doing reviews, etc too! Let me know!

I think I may have some similar topics covered on my blog. Not so much the homemaking craftiness, but the parenting, marriage, Jesus topics. Come over and visit my blog. If there's anything you see that's appropriate, I would love to share the link love.
