Guest Post Submission

Are you a Richmond-area mom with something to say? Do you have a funny story to share? Is there a local business you want to rave about?

We welcome submissions for guest posts!

We’re all about RVA moms, so we’re thrilled that you want to contribute your thoughts, experience, and inspiration to Richmond Moms Blog readers! Before you begin, check out the following guidelines for guest posts. 

  • Think LOCAL :: We love to keep all of our content relevant to Richmond and the surrounding area…or at least within driving distance for day trips and outings. Blog posts can feature places to go and things to do while more general topics {feeding, potty training, homework, DIY…} can be given a local twist simply because they’re written by a Richmond-area mom – YOU!
  • Think MOMS :: It may sound obvious, but the Richmond Moms Blog’s target audience is made up of moms, so it only makes sense that our content should remain under the broad category of parenting writing – the experience of being a mom, stages and phases of development, tips and tricks, home management strategies specific to moms, and of course, all of the Richmond-area-focused ideas mentioned earlier. At the end of the day, we’re all moms just trying to make our lives a little bit more enjoyable. If you’ve got an idea that interests you and your friends, then our readers would probably love to read about it too!
  • Think CONNECTIONS :: We encourage you to think critically about ways to connect with Richmond-area moms. Try to include clever and catchy post titles that draw people in or spark curiosity, and give your readers a reason to comment by asking questions – ‘So tell me, what is the most awful potty training experience you have ever encountered?’
  • Most Importantly :: Write what you love, and love what you write!

Please follow these important guidelines ::

  • Your post should be completely original. It should not have been published anywhere else on the Internet. Additionally, you agree not to publish the post anywhere else on the Internet {including your own blog or as a guest post on other websites} in the future. You can certainly link back to it with up to five sentences – for instance, ‘Today I am over at the Richmond Moms Blog posting about XYZ.’ … but the full content should remain exclusive to
  • Content must be free from the following: profanity, sexual language, political endorsement of a party or candidate, political commentary, op-ed commentary on controversial social and/or political issues, and derogatory or inflammatory language.
  • After your post is live, we encourage you to share your work on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc…

Types of posts we don’t accept ::

  • Marketing pitches from writers looking to exchange content for links
  • Articles that self-promote your business or product
  • Posts from non-Richmond-area writers
