I am not a blogger, but I read the ones that are unique in some way, Bees who are active on the boards, and Bees that have a great writing flow.  I also like pictures, lots of pictures.  If, for whatever reason you get denied, contact Pengy and ask for direct advice and Apply again.  Alot of Blogger Bees applied several times.  The Mod team are always willing to help and aspiring Blogger Bee.

Good luck and fingers crossed for you!

I agree with TKS, contact Pengy or even a couple of your favorite blogging bees and ask them to read over your blog and give you any suggestions that would help your chances. I know I’ve seen several blogging bees offer to do this before, so the chances are good!

Good luck, and just remember not to get too down if you don’t make it through the cut the first time. Most of the blogging bees have at least one rejection letter under their belt!

@HummusGal: Good luck – so exciting! I started a blog to apply for the ‘bee, so I didn’t yet have a personal blog, but you can either pull relevant posts into a new blog and write for WB over there, or continue on personal blog and relevant posts will be pulled for WB – whatever works for you!

That’s very exciting that you’re going to apply! Like hermitcrab, I created a new blog for the sole purpose of my weddingbee application, though I know you can still submit a personal blog that includes your wedding posts. I know a few of the ladies keep their personal blog and their weddingbee blog one and the same.

Have you started blogging yet? You have to wait until the 8-month mark to apply, but you can always start working on those posts earlier! In fact, I would recommend that because practice equals improved posts over time. πŸ™‚

Be sure to follow the guidelines, read up about the process, and then maybe check out the ‘A Bee’s Life‘ series to see what the process was like for blogger bees!

And as zippylef said, don’t let it get you down if you are rejected the first time! It sometimes happens, and many of the accepted bloggers weren’t accepted until their second or even third application.

And of course, best of luck!

So exciting!  

I started my blog for the sole purpose of applying to weddingbee, so everything was wedding related and written as if I were already writing for the Hive

I would also recommed reading through the A Bee’s Life series, it’s full of useful tidbits and suggestions about applying to be a bee.

You should definitely pm some of the blogger bees, most of us  would be happy to read over your blog and provide suggestions.

Good Luck!

@HummusGal:  As a 3 time rejected bee, who was finally accepted. I would be happy to lend some tips – write for yourself, because you are passionate about it. I pretend that I am telling a friend or my Mum or someone about the wedding stuff we are doing. I agree with what the others have said about a Bee’s life posts and the application guidelines, they are quite helpful!
