Call For Guest Posts!

I decided to insert a cute picture of Peanut when she was a newborn because I'll have another one of these soon. Ah!

I am nine months pregnant. The final stretch. Wow.

This fact has been playing in the back of my mind for some time now, but as a general rule I just push it aside. I have been thinking for weeks that I still had finals and Christmas before the baby comes. Now the semester is over and Christmas is less than two weeks away. Technically I could have the baby on Christmas eve and still be “full-term”. Though I am obviously not counting on it, I’m still amazed that I am so impossibly close.

So with what sometimes feels like the impending doom of my becoming a mother of two, I decided I need to really get planning. I need to get my home ready for the birth, I need to get myself ready for the birth (though obviously I’ve already been working on that one), and I need to get my blog ready for the birth. Hence the call for submissions!

Would YOU like to be featured on this blog? Well it’s fairly simple! Just send me an idea or a post and viola! Alright, maybe not quite that simple.

Hobomama, a blogger that I quite enjoy reading wrote a post about the guidelines for a guest blogger when her newest addition was on the way that I’m just going to reference here. She is very well-spoken (or -written, I suppose in this case) and thought this out very thoroughly. Her guidelines are much more than I would have even begun to think of (like reposts are okay, but they have to be 90 days old). I hope you don’t mind me borrowing your knowledge and planning.

In regards to content: anything that goes along with the theme of this blog (breastfeeding, natural parenting, etc.) is A-okay, but there are certainly some topics I am particularly interested in because of the purpose of this hiatus.

  • Birth stories, particularly home birth
  • Life with two children
  • Caring for a toddler and a newborn simultaneously (eek!)
  • Co-sleeping with two
  • Tandem nursing
  • Minimalism and babies
  • Budgeting and babies
  • Surviving the postpartum days

Of course, things that aren’t traditionally featured on this blog are welcome also. I am always interested in new insights.

I’m not going to put an official deadline on any of this since I didn’t give the greatest amount of time to create said guest posts, but I ask you to keep in mind that Twig is due mid-January, therefore the earlier the better. Please send submissions or questions to theadventuresoflactatinggirl {at} gmail {dot} com.
