Papernstitch Now Seeking Blog Contributors

Do you love to write? Do you have a passion for creative businesses? Do you love creating your own diy projects?

Well then, I want to hear from you because I am looking to add a few new contributors to the papernstitch blog team, and I am anxious to hear from you.

I am looking for writers who are able to write weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly articles in one of the following categories:

  1. Creative biz tips for small business owners: Looking for writers in various biz categories- general small business, marketing, social media, Etsy, etc
  2. Original diy projects and tutorials: Looking for crafters with excellent (original) ideas and good photos.
  3. Art + handmade features: Looking for someone with amazing style who is always finding new (undiscovered) artists and makers + wants to share their findings with papernstitch readers.

Blog contributors will be able to include a blurb about themselves at the end of every post (which will include a link back to their shop or blog) + will be added to the contributors page with additional links and info. Additional perks may be worked in after a trial period depending on how things go.

What a great opportunity. I’ll be emailing you. When is the deadline?

Hey Candice. I’ll start looking at the applications as they come in. So, once the contributor slots are filled, they’re filled. No set deadline (although I’d guess by the end of next week at the very latest the slots will be filled).

I don’t want to assume anything, but are these contributors paid?

Rachel Henry

Hi Rachel. The contributor positions are currently unpaid. But blog contributors will be getting exposure to the pns blog readership (130,000 page views per month and 80,000+ visitors) and will be able to include a blurb about themselves at the end of every post (which will include a link or two back to their shop and/or blog) + will also be added to the contributors page with additional links and info. Additional perks may be worked in after a trial period depending on how things go.

Hey, lady! You’ll definitely get a submission email from me this weekend trying to pitch myself 🙂

Are you going to announce when the slots are all filled? I applied and did not hear anything back from you. I wasn’t sure if that means you are still considering or if I have not been selected.
thanks

Thanks for asking Chantelle. I have not sent out any responses just yet, but will be in contact this week with follow-ups to anyone that I think would be a good fit. Thanks for your patience. 🙂
