Tips For Submitting Writing To Mamalode

If you are interested in learning more about submitting to Mamalode, looking for tips to get your writing featured, in search of a parenting magazine that approaches parenting from a meaningful place, or thinking of starting your own magazine (online or print), this interview will have something for you. Elke is passionate and motivating in the way she speaks and I am very excited to share this podcast with Beyond Your Blog-gers!

“Mamalode is a magazine. A website. A movement. Our readers and writers are moms—with a smattering of dads, kids, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends. They become Mamaloders because we give them something nobody else does—the truth and each other.”
