Happy 2010 to all of you! After a much needed break, SpanglishBaby is back in full force! Since we’re starting a new decade and will be celebrating our first anniversary next month, we’ve decided to make a few changes to our growing online community. Although we’ll reveal most of them at a later time, we are at this time announcing our call for monthly paid contributors.

What we’re looking for:

Whether you’ve been following us since we published our first article or you just stumbled upon our site a few days ago, you should know the main idea behind SpanglishBaby is to create a community where those of us who are raising bilingual + bicultural children can share our trials and tribulations – as well as our successes, of course – and thus learn from each other.

With that in mind, we’re looking for other bloggers writers who’d be interested in writing about their experiences raising bilingual + bicultural kids once a month. Whether you’re using the OPOL method, your children attend a language immersion school, or you keep our Latin culture alive through your delicious recipes, we’d love to have you be a part of our family. More than anything, we’re hoping the articles are personal, useful and fun.

We don’t really have any particular topics we’d like you to write about, we’re pretty flexible and open to your ideas, although  we would like for one of the contributors to have older children – at least kids in elementary school. It’d also be great if we could get a father’s point of view…

This will be a great way for you to get exposed to our growing audience as well as to get traffic back to your own site. Your profile and links to your personal blogs will be included in our special Contributors page.

What you need to do:

If you’re interested, please send us the following by Friday, January 29th to madre (at) spanglishbaby (dot) com:

  • A post between 500 and 1000 words.
  • A photo (or more) to go with the post.
  • A short bio with a link to your site.
  • If you’d like to write about a specif topic, please let us know.

We will choose FOUR paid contributors who can commit to writing a minimum of once post a month. As soon as Ana Lilian and I make a decision, we’ll be in touch with you. Thanks so much for your interest and please feel free to let us know if you have any questions. We can’t wait to hopefully welcome you to our SpanglishBaby family!
