The Somewhat Simple Creative Team is made up of talented bloggers who have a soft spot for minimalism. Our projects, recipes, and lifestyle tips are created with busy moms in mind. Our goal is to create meaningful moments for families in 60 minutes or less! Nothing fancy, nothing complicated.

We are currently looking for FOOD BLOGGERS and FOOD PHOTOGRAPHERS to join our team!

If you have been inspired by this blog and have amazing ideas of your own, we want to hear from you!

RECIPE GUIDELINES –

  • All recipes on Somewhat Simple are created with busy families in mind. While we do love an occasional gourmet meal, our team shares recipes that can be made every day – simple, affordable, kid-friendly, and delicious! 
  • Recipes should not take more than 60 minutes to make. The exception to this would be crockpot meals, bread recipes that need to rise, desserts that need to cool, etc.
  • Recipes should not use ingredients that are rare or hard to find. We have a worldwide audience that wants to duplicate what they see here. All ingredients should be available at local grocery stores.
  • Recipes should not be expensive to make. Spices that you use one time, expensive cuts of meat and fancy cheeses are delicious, but probably not the best fit here on Somewhat Simple.

PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDELINES – 

  • All recipes are to be shot in good lighting to produce a bright, fresh look.
  • All recipes must be shot on a white background – nothing dark and moody.
  • Keep props to a minimum.
  • Use props that are neutral colors with simple patterns and designs. (The exception to this would be when shooting for a holiday or celebration.)

CONTRIBUTOR RESPONSIBILITIES –

  • Create 1 or more recipe blog posts per month (you decide what you’re up for!) and publish directly to Somewhat Simple using your own username and password. (You’re going to be totally legit with a spot on our “Meet the Team” page and everything!)
  • Commit to blogging for Somewhat Simple for the rest of 2020. (We re-evaluate our team each December.)

CONTRIBUTOR QUALITIES –

  • Be able to take great pictures of your recipe.
  • Have a fun personality that comes through in writing
  • Be responsible and meet deadlines
  • Be familiar with blogging {If you are familiar with WordPress, that is a plus!}

COMPENSATION –

  • Compensation per blog post, paid monthly via PayPal.
  • Exposure to hundreds of thousands of readers and followers on all of the Somewhat Simple social media channels.
  • Additional revenue opportunities, as available, working with brands on sponsored posts.
