I am looking for guest bloggers to take part in my Rookie Mistakes series.

Rookie Mistakes is a series of posts that prove there’s no manual with this parenting job. Guest bloggers write a post about their parenting fails.  The series runs weekly with a different blogger each week.  The post will include a link back to your site and your facebook and twitter profiles.

If you would like to write a piece for my Rookie Mistakes series please check out the details below.  You can read more about the series here.


Funny anecdotes, lessons learnt, a serious change in parenting style, as long as it’s within the theme of the rookie mistakes we make as parents, the content is your story to tell, in your voice.

What I need

Please email me: admin@lifeloveanddirtydishes.com

  • Your post in a word document
  • Any images from your post, with accreditations.  (Please send images as attachments)
  • Link to your website
  • Your blog logo
  • An image of you
  • A short bio about you and your blog
  • Links to any social networks you would like included in the piece


If accepted for taking part in the series, I will let you know what day your post is scheduled to be published on my blog.  The post will be promoted through my social networks.

I ask that you wait 3 weeks after I have published your post before you publish on your own blog, and ask that when you do, you include links back to my site and this series.

I am happy to consider previously published submissions, again I would just ask that you add a line to your post to tell people you have taken part in this series with a link.

Your words are of course your work, (and sometimes blood, sweat and tears) so the rights to that work absolutely remain yours.  I do however reserve the right to edit submissions.

I would love you to include my Rookie Mistakes badge on your post and a link back to my site, if and when you publish it on your own blog, or if it is previously published.  Please see the code below…
