    So helpful! I wish I had known this before starting my blog!

    • Haha me too! It’s definitely something I learned along the way!

  • This is such a wonderful guide for beginners! I’m part of a few networks too but I haven’t been able to get any sponsored posts 🙁

    • Thanks Jessica! Getting selected for a sponsored post can be quite difficult sometimes. I try to apply for at least two different opportunities each week, if not more. The more you apply, the better chance you’ll have at getting one. Also, writing a really good pitch and having your blog stats to back you up is key! I hope this helps!!
