The time is rapidly approaching for little Vivian's arrival; I can't believe we're less than a month and a half away from meeting her! I was recently approached by someone about doing a guest post for their blog during the month after their baby arrives. And I'm now shamelessly stealing her brilliant idea. I thought I would see if any of my talented, clever, crafty readers might like to do a guest post or two towards the end of the summer. It would be such a treat for me, and hopefully fun for you as well.
Here's how I envision it working. If you're interested in writing a guest post, send it on over to me with the text and pictures all within the body of the email, if possible (please title the email "Guest Blogger: Post Topic (with your topic in place of the last two words, of course)).I think it will be great fun to share projects, thoughts, ideas and resources with each other and connect in a bigger way than just through the comments section. I'll schedule the guest posts to run a few each week through the end of the summer after Miss Vivi's arrival. And, of course, I'll be thrilled to link to your blog and/or shop, if you'd like.
Here are a few ideas for post topics, though don't feel limited by them. The beauty of this little project is that hopefully we'll get all sorts of neat perspectives and ideas that I wouldn't have even thought of myself.
- How-To and Tutorials; food, sewing, building, fixing, painting, thrifting, giving new life to thrifted items, taking portraits, gardening etc. Are you particularly great at something? Share the wisdom and the know-how!
- Thoughts about attachment parenting.
- Traveling, hiking, camping, outdoors-ing with kids.
- Nature projects.
- Urban homesteading (or regular old homesteading)
- Home schooling
Take a minute and think about what special thing(s) you might be able to share with Progressive Pioneer readers, something you're particularly passionate about. And I will be forever grateful to you for lightening my load and helping me keep this an interesting place to visit, learn and share, while I learn a new balancing act with two little ones! Like the birth stories, it will mostly be a first-come, first-served type of situation, though hopefully I'm able to share all of them!
PS The posts don't have to be new and original, just new to Progressive Pioneer readers. So, if you maintain a blog and have a neat post or two that you think everyone would enjoy, please pass it along!
