Guidelines for Contributions to Bring The Kids

  • The topic MUST BE related to outdoor adventures with kids. We are looking for content related to camping, biking, hiking, paddlesports, and skiing with kids. Additionally, we’re looking for articles about Utah outdoor adventures with kids.

    We want to share all the best tips, locations, and gear to help make outdoor adventures easier for families. What can other parents expect? What places were the most kid friendly? What gear supports the adventure best? Etc. Please do a search of our site to see if the destination or topic you want to cover has already been covered.

    If you have something more to add to a post that already exists, contact us and we will figure something out!
  • We only accept posts that are well written and proofread for spelling and grammar. For most posts, we have a template that we’d like you to follow.
  • We will read each post for content and quality and may come back to you with suggested or required changes prior to publishing (usually only in the event of grammatical errors or inappropriate content). We have the final word on what will appear on our site.
  • Your story and destination information are being provided by you exclusively for sites in the Bring The Kids Network and similar information written by you on this topic must not appear anywhere else on the internet, either now or in the future. We have several sites that are specific to outdoor adventures with kids in our network, so articles may appear there or on

  • Your post MUST BE about your own experiences, not those of someone else or a researched article. We will only accept posts that clearly demonstrate through the writing and the images, that you have been to the destination, tried the gear, and had the experience with kids.
  • All posts must have at least 1500 words, though we happily accept longer submissions as well.
  • You must include a minimum of 10 high quality photos  that you have the right to publish. The majority of the pictures should feature kids and families.
  • You give us permission to use these images on social media to promote the post, this may include creating pins for Pinterest, creating a promotional video and posting to Facebook and Instagram. We may also use the images in round-up posts or Google Web Stories on our sites to further promote the post.
  • You will have the option of either payment or a link to your own blog (not both). Include a personal bio that is 2-3 sentences long. Links to your own blog will include one do-follow link to a non-competing blog post and one link to a social network profile. No links to commercial sites will be provided.

Any submissions from companies or persons looking to guest post for commercial reasons (i.e. looking for backlinks to a website that is not a personal website) will be deleted without response.
