Do you have advice, tips, or an opinion that you would like to share? Do you want to inspire, motivate, and entertain others with your story? Three Peas Services is excited to announce that we are looking for guest bloggers to help share and further the knowledge and discussions of our community, The Pod.

The Pod is looking for quality content in the form of articles, videos, infographics, and slide shows. We especially love How To articles and Top 10-style lists but welcome any style of content as long as it meets our requirements. Content does not need to be original (i.e. it has been previously published on your blog) however you must be the content owner. The general content themes should focus around life & style topics such as family, health, beauty, DIY, fashion, small business, and food. Please see below for guest post writing prompts.

Why you should be a guest blogger on The Pod

  1. Tell your story and share your ideas by adding value to our network of over 800 subscribers.
  2. Validate your thinking and perspectives while growing your writing portfolio and resume.
  3. Communicate with The Pod community and build connections with others in the network.
  4. Stand out and grow your social media influence and authority in a particular industry or topic. Our guest posts are distributed to thousands of additional connections on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Google+. In addition, guest blogger profiles are featured on this page and link to a site of your choice.
  5. It’s FUN! Writing is a wonderfully creative process which can be extremely relaxing and cathartic. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to start your own blog!

Bio: My name is Brittney Herz, I am a librarian, writer, and teacher living on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I have one daughter who constantly keeps me on my toes and a fiancé who deals with living with two hyperactive girls. When I’m not playing with blocks and blowing bubbles I’m usually writing, reading, crafting, or trying to figure out how to live gluten-free (still not the best at it).

My blog is called “Improving Indifference”. It focuses mostly on educational initiatives for parents to help bring some education activities into the home and to help inspire children and teens to take an interest in their own education. However, there are other related posts so check it out at http://improvingindifference.com!

Bio: Hi there! I’m Nichole. I started blogging back in 2009 when I realized I could take my lifelong love of writing and combine it with my new hobby of cooking and baking. The recipes on my blog are kind of all over the place not really following a specific theme. A lot of bloggers have an arsenal of family recipes to share with their readers, but seeing as my mother is not much of a cook, I tend to make anything and everything that catches my eye. Connect with Nichole at www.cookaholicwife.com.
