Pleasure in the Writing

An aspect of editing I love is witnessing the pleasure in the writing by contributors. The work shared here bridges personal conviction and global audience, offering readers an opportunity to learn and grow whether through nonfiction, fiction or poetry. Even our sponsored posts have merit when it comes to relationships and mental health.

Thank you for sharing this deeply of yourselves.

What strikes me as most impressive is the dedication of our artists, many of whom were eager to support us prior to launch and have been writing with us since week one.

For an editor, there is no greater joy than having someone believe in the project you signed onto because you believe in it. As artist rank increase, I find myself joyfully grateful to everyone who reads and loves Raymond’s deeply honest work as I do. Thank you for supporting him and this platform, for working to raise consciousness, deepen conversations and expand awareness through vulnerability in your own art.

Today, I would like to re-extend the invitation to artists to contribute to The Relationship Blogger. We are growing and would love to have you along. Currently, we have 10 dedicated spots per month for writers. We would love to expand that number.

A few tips on submitting:

What I love most is receiving completed pieces and error-free copy that reflect the themes of this publication. Pitches are fine, but should contain a clear summary of the piece you are proposing to write. And if you want to write with us to advertise your own site, what you are requesting is a sponsored spot. You can learn more about sponsored posts by contacting Raymond directly: [email protected]

Otherwise, if you have a story or series to share, please review our submissions page. You can submit through the form there. I hope you choose to join the conversation. I look forward to reading your work!

Happy writing!
