  1. I was concerned that they own your work going forward- you need their permission to reuse- I can see for longer pieces but for the $50 range?

  2. Susan – I just wanted to say thank you for doing this interview! I found out about BYB via Coffee + Crumbs, and now found out about Parent.co via BYB. I just recently had some pieces accepted by them – really thankful for all you do on BYB to help out other bloggers, including me, find the right places for our voices.

    1. Thanks so much Cat! I’m so glad you found us and congrats on your Parent.co publications!
