GET A WEEKLY DOSE OF PARENTING INSPIRATION

Call for Submissions

We are lovers of words and community. That’s why we created Family Sponge– an inspiration playground for parents. We have created a platform to share the many voices that make you feel comforted in your parenting style and choices.

You are not alone in your thoughts. There are days when we have no thoughts (we call that mommy brain), and it helps to be inspired by what others have done and said.

So now we pass the opportunity to you… share your voice on Family Sponge! We love stories, photos and videos. You can send all submissions to hello(at)familysponge.com. Simply email your post (text), short bio and photos to accompany post.

If we feature your story, you will receive photo credit and a hyperlink to your site. Plus your story gets to live in cyberspace foooorrr-eeee-verrrrr (Sandlot).


ADVENTURE+TRAVEL

Share an exciting place you and your family have visited whether it be a local gem or an awesome travel destination. Share your tips on travel, budget, places to stay, so we can go there one day too! And if you have had a recent mom’s night out or date night, we’d love to share those ideas with our readers.

ART+DIY

Time to get your shine on as a crafty mama (or a handy dad). Share your how to with photos and instructions. Keep it simple with a step by step guide. I am the one who has a hard time reading instructions, so just pretend you are talking to me. Show us your stunning before and after photos.

COMMUNITY

Personal stories of volunteering, a charity you believe in, raising awareness for a cause. Let’s play our part in making our world a better place for our children to play and love.

FOOD+RECIPES

Share your favorite recipes. We love step by step photos and videos. And if you have a favorite restaurant in your town that is family-friendly, go ahead and rave about them.

HEALTH+SELF

Here you can share your personal reflections on your journey with healthy living emotionally and physically. Sometimes it’s nice to let it all out. Maybe you overcame some adversity in your life. Or you want to share your journey as a parent, or you just adopted a super healthy habit that has changed your world view. We want to hear it. Inspire others with your story and keep it positive.

HOME+DESIGN

Invite us to your home with a photo home tour. Share your kids playroom or bedroom. We love being inspired by real parents on real budgets designing their homes to fit their family needs and lifestyle.

NEIGHBORHOOD TOURS

“Won’t you be my neighbor?” Here’s your chance to convince all of your friends that your town is the place to live (or at least visit). Share your sidewalks, favorite parks, restaurants and things to do in your neighborhood. Make this photo tour an activity for you and your family to do one Sunday afternoon.

PARTIES+HOLIDAYS

Share your child’s birthday party: inspire us with the theme, cake, invitations, favors, location, etc. We also love holiday themed parties and all the cool stuff that gets us excited for holidays all year long.

THE ALTERNATIVE

This is taking the road less traveled. Share your education/parenting/lifestyle approach or philosophies that are not so mainstream. Shed some light and resources that may be the answer someone was looking for. “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” ~ Mother Teresa

VIDEOS

Share a parenting or child blooper. Inspire us with things your children say that keep you amazed. Share a local gem or vacation that others just have to see. Show us a how to with your pretty face!

    Hi there,
    I sent you a couple ideas for a possible guest post the other day, and I was checking in to see if you’ve had any time to review those. I would be willing to work within any guidelines you might have.
    Thanks for your time,
    Rebecca
