Guest Post Submission

Are you a local mom with something to say? A funny story to share, a local business* to rave about? We welcome submissions for guest posts!

{Note: We do NOT accept “guest post” marketing pitches from copywriters looking to exchange content for links, PR agencies, writers affiliated with other sites or businesses, or from non-MKE-area writers. Due to a large increase in these kinds of guest post pitches, we are unable to respond to your pitch unless you follow the guidelines below exactly.}

  • Think LOCAL: We love to keep all of our content relevant to the Milwaukee, WI 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, DIY…} can be given a local twist simply because they are written by a local mom – YOU!
  • Think MOMS: It may sound obvious, but MkeMom’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, within which you have a ton of subtopics to choose from – the experience of being a mom, stages and phases of development, tips and tricks, home management strategies specific to moms, and of course, all the locally-focused ideas mentioned earlier.  At the end of the day though, we are all moms just trying to make our lives a little bit more enjoyable.  If you have 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 engage your audience. 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!

Also, please take care with these important guidelines…

  • By submitting your post below, you agree that your post is completely original and has not posted anywhere else on the Internet. Additionally, you agree not to publish the post anywhere else {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 MkeMom posting about XYZ.’ … but the full content should remain exclusive to
  • Kinda obvious, but we have to say it…content should 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.
  • Part of our identity at MkeMom is that our content is created BY Milwaukee moms, FOR Milwaukee moms. While there are certainly exceptions to that from time to time, we prefer our guest content to be locally-based whenever possible.
  • Please submit at least one photo with your post, keeping copyright guidelines in mind when doing so. If you submit photos that do not belong to you must also include the written permission to use them or the stock photo source from which you received it.
  • Also, it is VERY important that you confirm your submission has gone through before closing out of this page.  Once you click ‘SUBMIT’, the page will refresh and you will get a confirmation notice if all information has been entered properly.
  • And last, but certainly not least – after your post is live, we would love for you to share it via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, carrier pigeon, and everywhere else you can think of!
