We’re looking for bloggers who are currently pregnant, going through the adoption process, or are mothers of babies under 6 years of age to join Hellobee! Please note that this is a volunteer position, but our bloggers have always found the experience to be incredibly rewarding!

We have very limited slots so we’ll be looking for bloggers with the complete package:

  • an interesting voice
  • a great sense of taste and style
  • can update at least 2 times a week
  • someone who shares helpful information as well as relatable stories
  • takes blog-worthy pictures

What we want from all our bloggers is a mix of posts that combine your personal motherhood journey with more informational posts. Readers should relate to you and learn from you as well.  We’re not looking for personal journal style posts that feature pictures of your baby or things you did that day. If you already have a baby blog, that often means writing some new posts, or editing posts you’ve already written so that they appeal to a wide audience like Hellobee. For some tips on what we’re looking for in a Hellobee blogger, please check out this post.

To apply:

  • Send us links to 5 posts you think we would publish as is on Hellobee
  • If you are not blogging about your pregnancy/baby on your existing blog, please write and email us at least 5 posts on pregnancy/baby, as well as examples of your portrait photography.
  • Please also complete the General Information section of the Blogger Application below, as well as Part 1 if you’re pregnant, Part 2 if you’re adopting, and Part 3 if you have a child under 6 years of age.
  • Please note that we are no longer accepting TTC bloggers as regular bloggers, but as guest series contributors on a specific aspect of the TTC journey. To apply as a TTC guest blogger, please check out our guest blog page.

Once you’ve completed the appropriate sections of this application, email it to iwanttoblog@hellobee.com.  If you do not receive an auto-reply confirmation, please email the application and an explanation of the problem to bee@hellobee.com.  We look forward to blogging with you!
