Guidelines - Writing a guest post for partofyourworld.org
Thank you for your interest in writing a guest post!
Who we are
partofyourworld.org is a key online resource that provides practical and useful information for first-time parents so they can feel more certain about supporting their newborn child in growing to live a heart-centered adult life.
Therefore, to create a powerful support system for the child we focus on sharing content that not only addresses parenting during the highly important early developmental years of a child, but also focuses on family life as well as building and maintaining a strong lifelong intimate relationship between partners.
Who we reach
Our subscribers are typically couples ranging between 20-40 years of age who are either thinking about having a baby or have recently had their first child, seeking long term support and guidance.
Their relationship with each other is already great as it is which provides a solid foundation for the life they want to create. They want to be the best parents they can be for their child, but also have their doubts and fears because of never having been a parent before. Despite their strong intimate relationship, never having been there before, does have them questioning and second-guessing themselves, making the experience a struggle as well. They may begin to worry about whether or not they´re really ready, if they can afford it and if their relationship will last with each other.
Our audience is committed, motivated, and willing to do whatever it takes to provide the best possible upbringing for their offspring, create a supportive family life, and maintain a lifelong intimate relationship. They seek practical guidance that will help them move towards creating the life they desire.
Our couples enjoy sharing their time together, cooking, reading, going for walks, and traveling. They are family-oriented, love children and animals. Feeling prepared, planning, and growing together are also important topics as they often talk about their future with each other.
In life - success to them means nothing if it is without fulfillment.
Yes, you could call us idealists... Our ultimate goal is to help eliminate dysfunctional behaviors in families and raise the potential of children growing up under the best possible conditions.
We imagine a world where parents provide the necessary guidance for their children that nor our politicians, our society, or our current school systems can provide. Our philosophy is that there is nothing outside ourselves that can create the happiness and fulfillment we are seeking - instead, we as human beings must learn to seek what we are looking for within ourselves. To us this means that we must begin creating the change we want to see in the world, within ourselves and guide our children accordingly - to live at heart, first.
