New guest blogger opportunities!

Consider becoming a guest blogger for wichealthblog.org! Your words of wisdom will be shared with our subscribers. Unfortunately, we are not able to pay guest bloggers for posts at this time. But, this is a great chance to share your knowledge about nutrition, parenting, and healthy living with our supportive and friendly community of readers. Please note that submissions may be edited for clarity and grammar.

What we are looking for:

We are looking for short (500 words or less) guest posts from WIC participants on the following topics:

1. Your child's marvelous milestones (Submit by August 15 or before)

Milestones are the ways children learn, play, move, and develop at specific times in their lives. We want to hear from you about how it felt to track your child's milestones! To learn more about milestones and how to track them, visit cdc.gov/actearly.

2. How you keep food safe (Submit by September 15 or before)

Keeping food safe is so important for everyone. And, it's especially important when you are pregnant and for your young children! How do you make sure food is cooked to a safe temperature? What are your tips for keeping cold food properly chilled? What foods do you avoid during pregnancy, and how do you remember to avoid them? If you need a refresher on food safety, try our free lesson called A Guide to Food Safety. You can find it on wichealth.org in the Healthy Families category!

3. Making mealtime a family time (Submit by October 15 or before)

Do you share regular meals with your family? How often do you have family meals? Did you have family meals growing up? Have you struggled to keep up with regular family meals? Tell us how you manage family mealtime and what has worked for your family to connect. We can't wait to hear all about it!

To submit your post, simply write an email to wichealthblog@gmail.com and attach a Word Document with your post, or a link to a Google doc. Be sure to also include a short bio (about 3 sentences is fine) and a picture, if you would like to share one. You are also encouraged to submit your own original photography to go with the post!

Thank you for considering becoming a guest blogger! We will reach out via email if your post has been selected for publication. And, if you have other ideas for posts that are not about the topics above, you can also email those to wichealthblog@gmail.com.
