Blogging Tips and Guidelines

Here’s an overview on what we’re looking for in a bee!

Writing for Weddingbee is a little different than writing for your own personal blog. When you blog for yourself, you can write about whatever’s on your mind. That’s a great thing for a personal blog! But it doesn’t work as well on a more audience-centric site like Weddingbee. 

We’ve noticed that a lot of personal wedding blogs share certain characteristics:

  • a personal, diary-like tone and writing style; incohesive entries
  • personal planning stories that do not engage or involve the audience 
  • to-do lists and checking items off your to-do list
  • ranting posts about FI’s, in-laws, bridesmaids, and vendors

These sorts of posts don’t tend to work as well on Weddingbee, where you’ll be writing for a community of brides-to-be looking for wedding ideas and inspiration. For this reason, we’re looking for specific types of posts:

  • posts that are interesting and relevant to brides/weddings 
  • pictures, pictures, and more pictures on ideas and inspiration.
  • research about vendors, products, services, etc.
  • DIY projects and tutorials on how to execute them

Before applying to Weddingbee, please think about whether or not you’d enjoy writing more audience-focused blog posts. It’s not for everyone, as it’s a different kind of writing. But if you like to help people, then it can be deeply rewarding. 🙂

If this sounds like the kind of writing you’d have fun doing, please send us your application along with the information found here. If you’re a good fit for the hive, you’ll be a buzzing, blogging bee in no time!
