Guest Post Submission

Are you a local mom with something to say? A funny story to share, a local business* to rave about? We welcome submissions for guest posts!

We so appreciate you taking the time to contribute your thoughts, experiences, and inspiration to Fargo Mom! Before you begin typing away, please read the following guidelines and feel free to contact us with any questions.

  • THINK LOCAL: We love to keep all our content relevant to the Fargo area, or at least within driving distance for day trips and outings. Blog posts can feature places to go and things to do, while more general topics {feeding, potty training, DIY} can be given a local twist simply because they are written by a local mom – YOU!
  • THINK MOMS: It may sound obvious, but our target market is made up of moms, so it only makes sense our content should remain under the broad category of parenting, within which you have a ton of subtopics to choose from – the experience of being a mom, stages and phases of development, tips and tricks, home management, strategies specific to moms, and of course, all the locally-focused ideas mentioned earlier. At the end of the day, though, we are all moms just trying to make our lives a little bit more enjoyable. If you have an idea that interests you and your friends, then our readers would probably love to read about it, too!
  • THINK CONNECTIONS: We encourage you to think critically about ways to engage your audience. Try to include clever and catchy post titles that draw people in or spark curiosity, and give your readers a reason to comment by asking questions.
  • Most importantly – write what you love, and love what you write!

Also, please review these important guidelines:

  • By submitting your post below, you agree that your post is completely original and has not been posted anywhere else on the internet. Additionally, you agree not to publish the post anywhere else {your own blog or as a guest post on other websites} in the future. You can certainly link back to it with up to five sentences – for instance, “Today, I’m over at Fargo Mom talking about XYZ,” but the full content should remain exclusive to FargoMom.com.
  • Content should be free from the following: profanity, sexual language, political endorsement of a party or candidate, political commentary, op-ed commentary on controversial social and/or political issues, and derogatory or inflammatory language.
  • You may choose to submit photo(s) with your post, but please keep copyright guidelines in mind when doing so. If you submit photos that do not belong to you, you must also include the written permission to use them or the stock photo source from where you received it.
  • It is VERY important you confirm your submission has gone through before closing this page. Once you click SUBMIT, the page will refresh and you will receive a confirmation notice if all information has been entered properly.
  • Once your post is live, we would love for you to share it via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and anywhere else you can think of!

{*Note: We do NOT accept “guest post” marketing pitches from copywriters looking to exchange content for links, from writers affiliated with other sites or businesses, or from non-Fargo-area writers. Due to a large increase in these kind of guest post pitches, we are unable to respond to your pitch unless you follow the guidelines above exactly.}
