Call for contributors

Attention creative people! Yep, that means YOU! I’m on the hunt for some fancy pants contributors to help spice up Blue Cricket Design in the new year!

Are you a killer organizer? Do you rock a birthday party like nobody’s business? Is Cleaning your favorite past time? If so then this might just be a perfect fit!

I’m looking for bloggers who are willing to share their talents on a regular basis! Original work and great photos are a must! You don’t have to be a huge blogger with endless fans! I’m looking for fresh ideas from talented bloggers with all ranges of experience.

This is a paid gig in some cases. I will be paying $10 per post for new unpublished work. If you are a “Professional” or someone who sells product or talent, i.e. a photographer, professional organizer, beauty consultant etc. you will in exchange get business exposure to your sites. You are also welcomed to submit already published work that is older then 2 months but these post do not qualify for compensation.

Each expert contributor will have a button with your photo or logo with links to their site inviting BCD readers to “check out more by this contributor” over on their home site! Titles of each post will be clearly stated making it know that this is not MY post.

“Decorative Vinyl by “Somewhat Simple” for example!

I will also have a special page and menu bar tab just for my contributors where I will list your pretty faces, a short bio and every link under the sun to reach you! Blog, website, Facebook, Twitter!  All in the hopes to also reward you with great traffic and new fans! I am currently enjoying over 250,000 page hits a month so grab a piece of that pie and apply by clicking the tab below!

You may apply for more then one topic but please fill out a separate application for each topic interested in.

I will be accepting applications thru Jan. 12th and you will be notified by Jan. 15th if you have been selected!

Blue Cricket Design will still mainly consist of me and my projects. Contributor post will be shared about once a week so the topics will be spread out! This is no an overwhelming commitment.

    I gave it a go. The hardest part was choosing a topic. I’ve got my hands in to many pots. LOL! Good luck with your search. I hope you find exactly what you’re looking for.
    Have a lovely day!

    I really would love to be considered. Your form wouldn’t let me choose “home decor” though and said an entry was required (even though I chose that entry?), so I went with holiday decor instead, but I’m interested in many of those entries rather than just one :)

    Hey, girl! I’d love to contribute some crafty projects here!
    Btw, how did your triathalon go? I know you were a little worried about the run portion.

    I was training at the same time you were and ran my first 1/2 marthon in November, and it was AWESOME. I think I’m going to go full-on marathon in the spring… ahhhh!

    Anywho, good luck with your search!

    This is great! I just submitted my application. For some reason, it wouldn’t let me choose “home Decor” as my top, so I chose refashioning expert, but my blog is more about Home Decor. Thanks for considering me!

    I am a tiny tiny blogger who has been following you for a while. I have made it a goal to actually grow my blog this year! This could be a great opportunity! I sent you a couple links to my healthy cooking posts and my holiday decor posts. Please don’t by pass us tiny blogs! :) Good luck in your search!

      Trust me! I love tiny bloggers! Everyone was a tiny blogger at one point and to be honest, being small might work to your advantage. Your stuff is new and original and not already ALL over the blog world, you are less busy with other obligations and you are willing to work for the exposure! I’m looking forward to reading all the applications no matter what size blogger!

    Thanks so much! I entered Home Decor. My projects are paint-related but they are truly No-Fail! Promise! I love using paint (all kinds) to update/transform home decor. I’d love the opportunity to share this w/your readers!

    Awesome opportunity!! I couldn’t resist, even though my blog might not be as ready as I think it should be… not new to DIY, I’m just new to the blogging wor;ld. Same day you posted this call! ;) But I applied anyways! Choosing a category was tough, so I applied for several, but you can see they overlap into all your categories! Thanks!
