@jenandchris:  I believe in the application guidelines it states to write your blog for two weeks as if you were blogging for weddingbee and then apply.  So no, you wouldn’t be penalized, but you would have to make an effort to blog just wedding-y stuff for a bit.

Sorry for the slightly off topic question but I’ve just always wondered: why do you want to become blogging bees? Do you get any perks? Or are most of you freelance writers, designers etc. and the publicity is really great for your career? Not trying to “threadjack” or anything, I just never understood the obsession πŸ˜‰

I know that I personally wanted to apply to blog because I gained so much inspiration as a reader and I wanted to be able to share my experience with others. I learned how to gocco from weddingbee, I learned how to emboss, and I figured my mistakes and experiences could help others. I’m not a freelance writer (and I don’t believe that any of the bees are), and I gain absolutely nothing other than sharing my experiences. No perks, no publicity, just *usually* bee love. πŸ˜‰

@bride123: I wrote a post about it a long time ago on WB, but going through the immigration process was this big unknown to me, and I hoped I could help other brides feel less alone in the process. Planning a wedding in another country, along with all the immigration fears was rough, and WB provided me with a supportive community of women, many of whom identified with the immigration process. 

@Miss Canyon as a former Arizonian (if only for a temporary time) and a former park ranger I’m excited to see your wedding!

ETA: @arclee many bloggers have had short periods between blogging for WB and their weddings, for example bunny and yorkie were just a few months away. If anything it’s almost easier to write that way.

@Miss Britt: Excellent!  Good to know – not that I’m sure I would ever apply, but its nice to know I don’t have to stop writing about other things I love right this very moment!

@dorsay: Your reason for blogging is great! I totally understand why you felt the need to blog, and I’m sure you benefitted (and will continue to benefit) lots of couples dealing with immigration.

I was rejected when I applied to be a hostess πŸ™‚ I will apply again after the wedding though! I love the hive and I can use that as an excuse to stick around! Haha!

I think it’s so great to read about everyone’s unique weddings. It’s fascinating to me to read about how weddings can come in all shapes and sizes, from the glamorous to the crafty to the broke (me!). That’s why I applied πŸ˜€

I was rejected once. It sucked and I did take a few weeks to brood and think about my blog. Then I started blogging for myself and became addicted to thinking out posts again. About 2 months later, I applied again and success! I encourage you guys to apply again closer to your weddings. Sometimes it’s just a matter of getting concrete things down – not just ideas but tangible stuff! Good luck everyone!

@jenandchris: What I did was start putting all my posts in a category called ‘wedding’. When I applied, I gave them the address blahblahblah.com/category/wedding (I use WordPress). That meant that they were only checking that feed when they were evaluating my application, so none of my other stuff got mixed in. Just going to blablahblah.com of course you still see every post.

Although I have to say, I haven’t blogged about non-wedding stuff in a while!

@cinnamonbun: Thanks CB!  That’s good to know…if I even do end up applying down the road, it for sure is a little scare to think about either being rejected…or about being a bee!  So much pressure to be awesome, like you ladies πŸ™‚
