TravelingMom is the leading independent family travel website. We pay for assigned posts with a strong “we’ve been there” vibe. We want writers who are moms and grandmoms, sisters, daughters, and significant others who have, well, been there. We are always looking for high quality writers who share our passion for family travel, kids, social media and inspiring others to travel, with and without their kids.

After Your Post is Published on TravelingMom
This is where you prove your social media chops, which is just as important at TravelingMom as your travel expertise and your reporting and writing abilities. Promote your post via your personal networks. While this is not the only reason we might ask you to become a permanent member of the TravelingMom Writer Group, readers’ response to your posts matters. Do the posts get hits? Comments?
After your third guest post is published, you will become an official member of the TravelingMom Writers Group. That gives you first dibs on assignments and press trips. It also gives you access to the many tools and resources we offer writers, from educational webinars on SEO to templates that make it super easy to make great Pins.
