  1. Hi Susan,

    I just wanted to say I have found your site very helpful. I am a fairly new “mom” blogger and constantly looking for tips on how to better my writing, and also other places I can write and get published. I look forward to submitting to you in the near future.

    Best,

    Rachele

  2. Hi, I am Noorizam from Malaysia. I was in early childhood education for 12 years and 6 years before that was a lecturer at one of a private college. My passion is in early childhood development and would like to share experience and at the same time would like to research on early intervention in early childhood development. Realising children are having issues so I hope i will be able to deliver the right way and share my experience. Here, there are a lot to read and learn…awesome and thank you I came across this..

  3. Hi Susan. I just found your site, and I’m so happy, I could cry! I’m a fairly new blogger and have much to learn. I have been overwhelmed trying to find resources to help me increase my subscriber list and break out in publishing beyond my own site. It looks like everything I need is “write” here. I can’t wait to start exploring.

  4. I just recently started blogging. Like other bloggers I want to create a interesting space that others are encouraged, entertained and informed.I hope that this site will provide some direction and help me maneuver my way around blogger land.

    Hi, my name is Taylor and I am only in seventh grade. I do write and sometimes draw illustrations to my books and if you gave me the scene I would love to write. my favorite genre to write is romance.

  6. Terrific resource for bloggers. I am yet to fully explore the site, the submission directory and the FB group. I’m? going to spread the word.

  7. What a great article.
    I like writing articles and i want to be paid to have them published.
    I hope its not too presumptuous but i would love to know what a ball mark figure for writing a paid article on a parenting site is. Have you any idea?

    1. There really is no ballpark. Some sites don’t pay anything, some pay bonuses based on things like views, and others pay flat rates ranging from $10 or $20 dollars up to hundreds. If you are writing parenting articles for select print publications it could be even more.

  8. Hi Susan,

    Thanks so much for all of this information! I’m new to blogging, and am feeling a little overwhelmed! I’m definitely going through your site for tips and info. 🙂

  9. Hi,
    I found your website in Google. I must say, it is very useful. I found something different. I am using it for my food blog. I have also subscribed to your newsletter. Hope to get something great.

    1. I can’t make it louder now that it is published, I would try turning the volume up on your device and on the video itself. I will be re-recording the video soon and will try to make the volume higher if I can. Cheers!

  10. Hi Susan, and a good afternoon to you!!!
    Wanting to blog about ‘coping with divorce in your later years.’ I am going on my fifth year
    of divorce and am now 64 years of age. Would like to make a few coins on my writing if at all possible, but need you to point me in the right direction. I’ve seen the suggestions you have given, but would like a ‘tighter’ point of reference if you are able to do this. Any help would be appreciated. I am a published writer……

    1. You can focus on sites that cater to that age group (midlife +), and/or sites that publish divorce-related pieces. Another option would be Washington Post’s blog Solo-ish, about unmarried life. Here is an interview I did with the editor, Lisa Bonos with more info: http://www.beyondyourblog.com/podcast/byb-063-washington-posts-solo-ish-publishes-your-writing-about-unmarried-life-with-editor-lisa-bonos/

      Our relationships directory might be one to take a look at: http://www.beyondyourblog.com/opportunities/relationships/
      as well as our midlife directory: http://www.beyondyourblog.com/opportunities/midlife/

      Cheers!

  11. Susan- I am brand new into researching how to approach getting my father’s recorded religious stories out there, either in written or auditory form.

    Literally, I began this morning when I couldn’t sleep. I don’t have a blog and am lucky to spell the word. I rarely listen to podcasts. However, I do have several inspirational heart warming stories on cassette tape, and now CD that he wished would somehow get published.

    Would you kindly point me in the right direction?

    Thanks. Becky

  12. Hi Susan, a friend of yours Keith Shirley referred me to your site. My husband is going through a stem cell transplant. For years I have enjoyed writing and been very interested in blogging, but busy with a full time job and now, as a 24 hour care giver, things are changing in my life and I want to focus on helping others through writing. During this process I have been “writing” about our days and experience through social media and had many people encourage me to try and follow this passion, and been told my writing is an inspiration. I do not have even have a site set up for blogging so that is where I am trying to start as I assume this is the first step. Anything you can do to assist would be great. Thank you!
