Each week in the Beyond Your Blog Newsletter I showcase a blogger and their recommendation for a site to submit writing to. We’ve gathered quite a few great recommendations since I started this segment and I am sharing them with you here for those who may have missed them.
Larissa blogs at Mommikin, a website for inspiring creative moms, both professionally and personally. Larissa recommends The Rumpus because “… it’s such an interesting collection of writing, points of view, and often digs a little deeper intellectually.” Find out more about submitting to The Rumpus HERE.
Jessica blogs at Motherhood, Marriage, Self Blog, where she blogs about all things motherhood/marriage-related, in all the heartbreak and hilarity.

Jocelyn blogs at O Mighty Crisis, where she pours words so that her skull doesn’t explode from trying to hold them all. Jocelyn also recommends Mamalode, as a great place to submit writing AND to visit as a reader. “The essays there run the gamut from reflective to light-hearted, but always they tell the writer’s truth in a powerful way. I also really respect that they’ve found a model that allows writers the promise of payment, if enough people read their work. Finally, I love that the editors at Mamalode are quick, in terms of getting back to writers with acceptances, and they are helpful and reliable, in terms of communication about publication dates.” Learn more about writing for Mamalode.
Jill blogs at Totally Inappropriate Mom, a life-uncensored, did-I-just-say-that-out-loud type of blog where laughter, honesty and filterless-ism reign supreme. Jill recommends BLUNTmoms, as a site that “provides an honest look at parenting and all of its facets from the nitty-gritty perspective.” Learn more about writing for BLUNTmoms.
