Contributors Wanted

Belle Maison is approaching its 5-year anniversary and to celebrate, I'm giving my blog a complete overhaul - something I've wanted to do for a long time! You'll get to see the shiny new layout later this week. Along with the fresh new look of Belle Maison, I've been working on new ideas and ways to bring you better content, more features, etc. Between caring for my 10-month old son while working from home (nearly impossible!), multiple design projects, meeting with clients, answering emails, and trying to have some sort of personal life, I could use some help in the blog department! That's why I'm reaching out to my fabulous readers in search of the first group of Belle Maison contributors. I'd love to recruit 4 - 5 contributors to join my team! The categories I'm looking to cover are:
  • Decorating & Interior Design
  • DIY
  • Beauty & Fashion
  • Food
TIME COMMITMENT: 1 to 2 blog posts per month for 6 months.

EXPERIENCE: You must have your own blog, which you update on a regular basis. I'm searching for bloggers who have a similar aesthetic to mine and are experienced with creating content that's fresh and updated.

CONTENT: Fresh stories / tips / tutorials / ideas...accompanied with pretty photographs and well written copy. All images must have a credit and link to source. The posts you write for Belle Maison can't be posted on your blog, however you can link to the post.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?  This could be a great opportunity to gain more exposure on your blog and maybe make some new connections in the process. You'll  be featured on the Contributors page with a small blurb about you, your photo and a link to your blog.

SUBMISSIONS: Please email me @ julie[at]modernchichome[dot]com with the subject "Contributor" and let me know which category you're interested in, along with a link to your blog. Once the contributors have been selected, I'll contact them via email and announce them on my blog in about 2 weeks.

OTHER SUGGESTIONS OR IDEAS: If you're not interested in becoming a contributor but have some ideas or suggestions for future posts on design related topics, dilemmas, etc., feel free to leave a comment at the end of this post. I'm always on the lookout for new ideas and ways to connect with my readers.

Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you! xo - Julie
