Welcome to January! SDMB’s busiest month of the year!
To welcome 2018, we are doing some pretty huge things- we are EXPANDING!
We are not only looking for new writers and events team members, but Beer Mom and Coffee Mom ambassadors. We also need a new small events coordinator to join our executive team! Please see each description listed below and fill out the application that applies.
AND come meet us in person at Lightbulb Coffee in La Mesa on January 15th starting at 8AM- so we can get to meet you face to face! They will be offering our San Diego Moms Blog followers 15% off coffee and they will also be offering some yummy samples of sweet treats. See you there!
SDMB is looking for local (San Diego county) moms who are passionate about our community and love to share stories and wisdom with others. This is a volunteer position, but there are some really fun perks to make it all worthwhile. ***Note: you do NOT have to be a blogger to apply!
Here’s the “job description”:
What You GIVE::
- One original post/month on topics of your choice (within the brand and mission of SDMB)
- Six month commitment, beginning in February
- Available for in-person, regularly scheduled contributor meetings (approx every 8 weeks)
- Interaction in our private FB group and regular interaction on SDMB social media platforms

- Opportunity to test products and/or visit local businesses for review purposes (translation: free stuff)
- Continuing education and professional development in the areas of writing, blogging, SEO, social media and more
- Access to pre-sale tickets or free entry to San Diego Moms Blog events (which often sell out quickly)

What To DO::
- Fill out the application below
- Make it happen by January 15th and no later!
About Our Decision….
- Many factors influence our final decision on who is the best fit for our team. Often we are looking to fill a particular topic/niche area or style of writing. For example- we need moms who live in different locations all over San Diego! We are looking for moms in all of these categories: Single moms, moms with different cultural backgrounds, full-time working moms, LGBTQ moms, foster moms, adoptive moms, military moms, etc. If you have a specific niche- then you might be a great fit for our team! We strive to reflect the culture of San Diego so we want to be as diverse as possible. If it isn’t you this time (or if it wasn’t you last time), please know it may have nothing to do with how much we like your writing, or you as a person/mom/friend/neighbor.
- The Contributor role is more of a commitment (with more perks) than some moms are ready for due to pregnancy, new babies, or just this busy time of life we’re in. If you would like to write for San Diego Moms Blog in a Guest Blogger capacity (occasional guest posts with no other commitments and no freebie perks), just fill out our guest post submission form.
- Our decision process will take approximately 1-2 weeks. New Contributors will be notified by the beginning of February, if not sooner. February will be an orientation/on-boarding period with at least one mandatory in-person meeting or one-on-one phone call, and new writers can begin submitting their first post by the end of the month.
