The Toledo Moms Team is growing! We currently have over 35 incredible women on our team, and we are now looking to add diverse, local writers who are passionate about our city and interested in helping TM produce high-quality content for the blog. This is a volunteer position, but there are some really fun perks to make it more than worth it! Do you feel like you have something to give to Northwest Ohio and Toledo Moms through your writing? Please consider joining us!

Who we are looking for….

The Northwest Ohio area is a vibrant community with many amazing parenting styles and cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds represented and we would love to continue to build a team that echoes the diversity of our community. With that in mind, the writers we are looking for are:

  • Moms in the Northwest Ohio area who have a passion for motherhood, our city and enjoy sharing their experiences.
  • Women with a sense of humor and zest for life who don’t tend to take themselves too seriously.
  • A diverse group of women who represent the demographics of our community.

  • Share our content within your social media circle to help generate buzz and excitement.
  • Be available for official Toledo Moms events as much as possible.
  • Respond to emails in a timely manner (within 48 hours).
  • Represent Toledo Moms in a positive and professional manner at all times including social media presence.

What you give….

  • Any combination of content per month on topics of your choice (within our brand and mission):
    – 1 full blog posts a month to be featured on www.toledomoms.com
    – compiling a guide counts for 3 months of content
  • Signed Contributor Agreement for 6-month initial commitment, to be renewed every 6 months.
  • Available for in-person monthly and/or quarterly contributor meetings and lots of fun team building activities.
  • A passion for moms, kids, and the Northwest Ohio area (where you also live, of course!).

  • Access to our Toledo Moms Contributors Facebook group and our internal communications.
  • Opportunities to test products for review as they become available (to be posted on Toledo Moms).
  • Access to information and professional development in the areas of writing, blogging, SEO, sales, social media and event management.
  • Access to presale tickets for Toledo moms events, and potential access to discounts.
