Write for Crunchy Family

We welcome contributors of all types, provided their posts fall within the organic/crunchy lifestyle. We do make exceptions, however, because Crunchy Family understands the varying levels of crunchiness! We accept freestyle posts, though we do provide a list of topics we’d love to have on the blog.

Fingernails painted red; hands on a black keyboard; various creative-related paraphinalia on a desk with yellow flowers and a coffee cup over them; one says, "Fuck anything that doesn't make you happy."

Types of posts our readers love

  • Personal stories: Open yourself up to our audience and the world; vulnerability is what really allows readers to connect with writers. Personifying photos are recommended!
  • Recipes: Healthy, hearty, homemade meals and snacks, galore! Recipes with clear instructions and ingredients, and high-quality photos (i.e. food porn) tend to do best. Please don’t send us a photo of a recipe that looks like your dog’s vomit or your cat’s hairball. We, along with our audience, will pass.
  • DIY & Crafts: Teach us how to do something! DIY posts should be accompanied by unedited, high-quality photos of the project—not a stock photo of something we can buy at the store…unless you’re teaching us to DIY our own.
  • Features: Crunchies Around the World

Who reads Crunchy Family

Mothers—lots of ’em! We also have some dads, but it’s mostly mothers who want the best for their kids. We have and welcome readers and writers of all faiths, provided they treat each other respectfully.

A large portion of our audience is from the LGBTQ+ community, so please keep this in mind with your post.

The age range varies, though Crunchy Family is run by two millennial cousins.

Once your post goes live

We encourage our contributors to share their published posts on social media, as we will share posts across our platforms.

If desired, your post may be reposted elsewhere six (6) months after going on live on Crunchy Family, provided you link back to the exact URL the post was originally published on. We don’t personally recommend this, unless you make multiple changes, because numerous search engines do not favor duplicate content.

We do not currently pay our regular contributors, though we would like to in the future.

Topic suggestions

  • crunchy wedding stories
