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.
Please note: We are closed to new writers until after Jan. 15, 2020.
What Do I Need to Do to Write for TravelingMom?
The first step is easy. You apply. Fill out this form. Your application will be reviewed and we’ll let you know.
We will ask you to pitch us a family travel idea. If we agree to publish it, the first post will not be paid, but it is the gateway to paid assignments from TravelingMom. You will work with our award-winning Intake Editor, Christine Tibbetts, to get the TravelingMom “we’ve been there” voice in your story.
If you are new to blogging, we suggest you read this free guide on How to Start Blogging before you apply.
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 first 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.
