Bloggertunities: How to Find the Best Blogging Opportunities for Women Bloggers

Blogging opportunities list for women bloggers

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss

Most of you mommas out there are probably familiar with this Dr. Seuss quote – it’s one of my favorites. While it applies to pretty much everything in life – I think it really applies to the blogging world very well. Lately, I’ve seen quite a few instances of people flying off the handle over someone else’s actions, opinions, or parenting ideas. There will always be someone who disagrees with you, in life, and especially on the web. I do my VERY best, always, to be respectful of people I disagree with, but on the internet, that seems to be getting more rare by the day. The trolls love to attack over any little thing, right? So – Be as authentically YOU as possible on your site. Make the choices that are best for you and your readers. Share what you think, listen to other opinions, but don’t ever censor yourself just because of the haters out there. They’re gonna hate over something anyway, might as well be something that you’re really passionate about :)

Making Money with Your Blog

  • Integrate: This is a really interesting network, very different than a lot of others that I’ve worked with. For some tips on how it works, read my Getting Started with Integrate.com post. Or visit their site to read more, and join today.
  • Link Vehicle: This is a pretty easy way to earn a little extra cash for your writing – but there are a few drawbacks to be aware of. While it’s super simple to sign up and get started, not all of the offers you’ll get are always for projects that will be a good fit for you – so be sure to be choosy, and only accept those offers that your readers will be interested in learning about. And, be aware that the price quoted to you for a post {mine is usually around $30} – you will only get half of that price, they keep the other half. But, I do a few of these a month, and they pay on time every month, so I’m happy with them. Learn more about Link Vehicle.
  • Mom Spark Media: If you’re following the Mom Spark blog, then you already know how awesome Amy is, who runs the site. She also has a network to connect bloggers and brands, called Mom Spark Media. It’s a paid membership – either $5 a month, or $40 a year – And after paying for my second year recently, I can tell you that it’s definitely worth it! You not only get connected with cool opportunities like sponsored posts, twitter party hosting, and sweet product reviews, you’ll also be able to access all of the great support forums too. Love it.
  • SheHeard: Making Blogger to Brand Connections – that’s what they do! There are a couple of totally rockin’ ladies behind this network, and you’ll love working with them. Learn more about the site, and sign up to be a member of their great community today to get access to new opps.
  • Stella & Dot: This is a really great option for those of you who are fashion bloggers – Become a Stylish wtih them, work from home, promote your great gear on your site, and earn some serious income. I know quite a few people doing this, and am considering it myself – www.stelladot.com/stylist
  • Business2Blogger: You’ll find everything from paid posts to product reviews on this site. I was able to get connected to a brand who flew me to Texas to cover a really cool event earlier this year, by applying for the opp on the Business 2 Blogger site. Lots of new opportunities going up each week, so check back often. Sign up for their Blogger Outreach.
  • Social Spark: For those of you already using Social Spark to get connected to sponsored posts, are you noticing a lot of new campaigns coming through too? I’m definitely loving that! For those of you not working with them yet – you can sign up for Social Spark now, and be ready for the extra bunch of paid posts for the holiday season!
  • Paper Coterie: Are you a member of this super easy to use new affiliate company yet? You get sweet offers like this to promote - $40 in FREE credit for new members – shop now! - and you’ll get bonus freebie codes to use to get yourself complimentary products to try out each month too. Very cool.
