Write For Raised Good

Thank you for your interest in becoming a contributor at Raised Good.

Raised Good is about helping modern day parents feel supported and empowered in their natural and instinctive parenting choices. My hope, when launching Raised Good, was that this would become more than a one-mama-blog. My dream is that together, we can build a global platform, a community of connected parents and thought-leaders who offer support, guidance and inspiration. A tribe who reminds us that while our choices are deemed unconventional by an increasingly disconnected society, they are completely normal and natural. I deeply value our community and would love to share your thoughts in front of our growing tribe of positive parents.

IF YOU WANT TO WRITE FOR RAISED GOOD

I’m drawn to articles that explore a topic by telling a personal story or delve deeply into a topic through scientific research. In the first instance, please email me with 3-5 suggested topics, headlines, and a brief overview of what your post will cover. Please do not approach me with an entire post. I don’t want to waste your time (or mine!), so I just require a pitch to see if the topic is appropriate.

If you plan to write a post that is research based please ensure your references are from peer-reviewed journals or from respected thought-leaders. The process is selective and the writing must be of a high quality. The following guidelines may help increase your chances of your pitch being accepted for publication on Raised Good:

Articles submitted for consideration should be of interest to the Raised Good community and fall into one of the six categories — Night, Day, Life, Health, Travel and Feed. The topics that resonate most with the Raised Good audience are written on simplifying childhood, gentle infant sleep practices, normalizing breastfeeding and natural education choices. Here are six of the most popular articles on Raised Good to give you an idea of what we’re thinking:

Simplifying Childhood May Protect Against Mental Health Issues

Let’s Nurture Babies Who Won’t Have To Recover From Sleep Training

In The Wee Small Hours of the Morning

How Breastfeeding Enriches Toddlerhood…And Motherhood

The Anxiety Epidemic: Why Kids Need Less School and More Freedom

I’d love to have you help us dig deeper into the concepts of natural parenting. Personal anecdotes and stories resonate well with the Raised Good audience, as does authenticity, honesty and vulnerability. Where are you struggling? What have you overcome? What tensions are you trying to resolve in your family life? 

If accepted articles should be between 800-1200 words, but can be longer in special circumstances. They should also include a meta description for search engines and social sharing which should be no longer than 160 characters.

I do not pay for contributed articles, but I will promote them as I do my own articles across my social media accounts, with an author BIO and link back to your website. The Raised Good Facebook page is extremely active and typically drives 2,000+ readers to each article I share.

To submit an article for consideration, please email Tracy at tracy@raisedgood.com with the following information within the body of the email; 3-5 suggested topics, headlines, and a brief overview of what your post will cover. I aim to respond with an answer within one week.

Thank you so much for your interest in writing for Raised Good and I am excited to hear from you.
