Writing Submission Checklist via Beyond Your Blog

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

As a network specifically created for bloggers to connect, share, and improve their blogging skills, we love this Writing Submission Checklist from Susan at Beyond Your Blog. She was kind enough to share it with us and it’s a great resource for those looking to do more guest posting! – Liz 

We’ve  come up with a quick submission checklist for those of you out there hesitating about submitting your writing to those big scary sites (that really are not so scary at all), because you are not sure how it works or what to do.

It’s easy, I promise.  Once you have a site in mind to submit to and a piece to submit, start checking off these to-do’s and let us know when you get accepted (or rinse and repeat if it doesn’t go your way). Click to enlarge.

Fire, Flour & Fork Blogger Opportunity

Written by , Posted in Blogging

Hey bloggers! Big Spoon Agency has a pretty exciting opportunity for us! I’ll let Kevin share the details: 

fire flour fork

We want to personally extend an invitation for you to come immerse yourself in Richmond’s dining scene and have a special meetup during Fire, Flour and Fork weekend this fall.  Fire, Flour and Fork is Virginia’s premiere gathering for the food curious. To be held on Halloween weekend in Richmond, VA, one of Frommer’s Top Destinations of 2014, this highly-curated culinary event is organized by Real Richmond Food Tours and presenting sponsor Virginia Is For Lovers. It brings together nationally-known chefs with the region’s best talent for one-of-a-kind meal collaborations, demos, and workshops with local restaurants. Additionally, food producers, cookbook authors, filmmakers, poets, playwrights, culinary historians, craft spirit makers and more will be participating to celebrate Richmond’s complex history and dining scene. This event is the first of its kind in the Mid-Atlantic region.

 

How does this opportunity work? Simple. Write a preview post outlining your ideal schedule for Saturday’s culinary track. You must also include a link to buy tickets in your post. Shoot it over to us, and we’ll follow up with a ticket so that you can attend on Saturday, 11/1/14. You’ll experience a total of four sessions, plus book signings, a tasting square, networking opportunities, and facetime with some of Virginia’s most prolific food purveyors. All we ask in return is that you share blog post with your social networks. You pick your schedule, and we make it happen. Everybody wins.

 

The first twenty bloggers to respond with a published post will be selected for this opportunity. To be eligible for your ticket, you must complete your post with preferred tracks and have it emailed to kevin@bigspoonagency.com by September 30th.

 

To choose your track and learn more about the weekend, get started over on our website - fireflourandfork.com.

 

Huge thank you to Kevin & Big Spoon Agency for the opportunity! Got questions? Shoot Kevin an e-mail! We’ll try to keep you posted on how many spots are left, but if you know you want to join, start writing your post as soon as possible!

We’ve got a special guest post today from Danny of Photo Danny Foto and she’s got an awesome style post for you! Enjoy- Liz

 

It’s been 4 months now since I moved to Richmond and all has been a roller coaster trying to start a new life here, preparing my wedding (this October!!), missing my friends and family, trying to get a new job and meeting new people. All of this could sound hard to swallow but the truth is that I like the way things are going and in the meantime take the opportunity to keep sharing my world with you through my blog!

The idea behind this feature was to create three different looks wearing the same statement piece. Just to have fun putting together different outfits for different moods. So I hope you like them and get inspired to look awesome, regardless of where you’re going or what the occasion is. xoxo, Danny

I love everything about this outfit, it’s simple and effortless but at the same time fun and fresh for the summer in the city. I can’t stop wearing these Adilette custom slides from Adidas Original, they are so comfortable and easy to style, specially with this weather.

I believe that denim can be an excellent option to wear and create a relaxed but yet formal outfit. For this look I styled my denim shirt with my white Zara trousers and a pair of Schutz heels. The result is great because is a very wearable outfit that has certain formality with a “risky” and fun side.

Last but not least, a look just perfect to go out. It brings the fun for a Friday night, with this incredible skirt from Topshop. Don’t forget to choose colourful accessories to contrast the skirt like I did with my Ferzu necklace, adding the perfect touch with a clutch from Kate Spade.
