What We Write About
Grits & Grace is a southern lifestyle parenting blog. Not only do we talk about various parenting topics, but we also like to throw in a mix of everything. From lifestyle, marriage, relationships, divorce, and self-care. Our overall goal is to be a resource for mothers around the world (not just southern momma’s), to see that no matter where they are, we all have the same goal, and we all go through the same things.
Our Blog Categories
We discuss a little bit of everything. We weren’t the first set of parents and we aren’t the last either. But at the very least we can do is make one another feel good about what we are going through.
Our lifestyle posts are devoted to lists of our favorite things, articles about life, travel tips and more.
THIS JUST IN
This is the latest news that’s happening in real time. These posts are typically shorter since they are written on the fly. But it’s a great way to get your feet wet if you are just starting out writing.
We tackle the good, the bad and downright ugly. It’s not just romantic relationships, but those between friends, kids, family, and co-workers. If you’ve got a story to tell, we want to hear it.
What Makes the Perfect Blog Post?
We prefer posts that not present amazing content, but that know how to grab the reader from the jump. This means catching titles and a killer amazing opening paragraph.
Typically, posts need to be between 500 and 1,000 words. However, if the content is great (and at least 300 words for SEO purposes), we will accept it.
We are fun and upbeat. We enjoy positive posts and like to put a spin on topics to create engaging posts for our audience.
We want to encourage those who read our blog and also provide our readers with something they can’t get elsewhere.
What We Don’t Accept
Previously published posts. We prefer fresh content.
Content that promotes a product or service. NO MLM promotion. That’s not going to fly over here.
Posts that are unorganized or have unclear focus.
