To Blog or Not To Blog...

I applied awhile back to be a 'Bridal Bud' for the BridalBuds website. It's a bridal community. Think WeddingBee, I thought it was sort of independent and smallish. They turned me down because my wedding was more then a year away, so awhile back I applied again. This time I was accepted, but now I'm not sure I want to do it.

First of all, they're less small then I thought. Seems that they are run by a company that is associated in some way with Martha Steward, facebook, iPhone and WeddingWire. So definitely part of the whole WiC thing...

Also, you guys know, I've not been updating like a good blogger should. I would need to write 2-3 entries a week. But then, I don't just get to post them myself, I submit them to their editors, and hope for the best. I've never been a fan of censorship, but on the other hand, it might not be that way. If I were running a website like that, I'd want to see why my bloggers were publishing too.

The third big hurdle is I have to fax in my signed agreement form. I don't have a fax machine. I'm not even sure where I'd go to fax something....

So, any opinions?

  2. You can guest blog for us over at OneWed.com's Savvy Scoop! We would love to have ya. :)

  3. If you're looking to write more, this would give you some incentive. And you can fax things at any Kinko's/UPS-type store. On the other hand, if you're iffy on writing for them because of their size, I would recommend turning them down and finding something smaller that you feel you can relate to. :)

  4. I'm not looking to write more, so much as be read more, if that make sense. I don't get a lot of traffic or feed back at this blog, and I get a little more at livejournal, but they don't want to hear wedding wedding all the time stuff.

    I am leaning more and more towards saying no though. I don't think I'd be excited about it.

  5. @Jennapier How would I learn more about guest blogging for you guys? I'm checking out your website right now :)
