Help Me and a Contest

Will you do me a favor?

This blog is a place where I  renew my creative spark with the help of all of you wonderful people. But do you know what would make it even more fun?  New voices and new ideas.  There are two ways that you can help me take Creative Sprinkle to the next level: contribute a topic idea or offer to write a guest post.

Share an Idea
I'm always on the look out for new topic ideas. If you have one to share leave a comment below or e-mail me. I'll see if I can tackle it, or I'll try to find a guest blogger to take it on.
Added Incentive (win this!)
Just to sweeten the pot a little bit, I've decided to throw a contest into this plea for help. Everyone who e-mails me or leaves a comment with a topic suggestion by December 31 will be entered into a drawing to win this polymer clay pin. It is made with my signature red pepper and paprika blend and finished with pearl powders.

Guest Blog (what's in it for you)
So many of you are creative souls with much to share. I'm asking you to share here. A guest post is a great way to attract new people to your blog and receive link backs to increase your search engine optimization. I've done guest posts on a couple of sites and it has always been a rewarding experience.

Although I can't pay you for the post, I will allow you to link to your blog and/or store, plus I can promote the item of your choice in my sidebar for at least two-weeks.

The theme of creativity allows quite a bit of freedom and I'd love to hear different ideas. You could even do a slight rework of something you published on your own blog. Below are some thought-starters for possible guest post topics.
  • Stories of your creative spark getting peed on and how you re-ignited it
  • Staying creative when you create for profit
  • Cool projects we just have to try
  • Photography tips for creatives who aren't as good with a camera as they are a paint brush
  • Foods that enhance creativity
  • Pick-me Up Monday topics
To get started guest blogging: 
Email me your idea and include: "Guest Post for Creative Sprinkle" in the subject line, a brief summary of what you want to write about, and a link to your blog so I can get an idea of your writing style. Bonus points if you pitch me a great series!
 If your idea fits my blog, I'll give you the go-ahead to get started and send you some simple instructions on how to submit a post.
Timeline: Anytime in 2011.  As far as deadlines are concerned, I want this to be low-stress. You can set your timeline. Of course, if you want to do something time-sensitive, you'll have to submit it in time to publish it before the topic is outdated.
Open your creative faucet and let the ideas flow!


  1. I hope you get tons of ideas and some possible great guest bloggers lined up. Wish I had something to offer you but since I'm so new to the whole art thing I think I'm more on the student side. I see so many guest posts and it is a great way to get your blog out there, but I still have nothing to offer. Can't wait to see what comes of this though. Best of luck!

  2. Here is a little something I am inviting people to come and be a part of:


Ooh,a comment! How delightful.
