about hwtm OUR STORY and MISSION AT HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS®
Submissions Announcement: October 16, 2014
After several years of featuring third party submissions and being amazed by the incredible creativity that has graced our inbox, we’ve decided to take an indefinite break from submissions in order to focus our time on bringing new projects and original content to life.
While we’d love to be able to do it all in a perfect world, the reality is that there are only so many hours in the day, and as a small husband/wife team that’s also juggling 2 little ones on top of HWTM, we’ve realized that the time has come for us to try out a new path for a while. The blogging world has changed so much in these past 8 years, and that means we must be willing to change things up as well.
This doesn’t mean the door is completely shut on featuring third party events – new features may pop from time to time when it’s especially relevant – but we are no longer actively seeking or accepting submissions. Past posts will still be accessible, as usual, and we will of course honor the features that we’ve already committed to over the next several weeks.
I hope you can understand where we’re coming from – and please know that this change in direction didn’t come without significant thought. Thank you so much for your support of HWTM over the past 8 years. We hope to continue to inspire you in the next 8 as well – even if it is in a new and different sort of way. :)
Founder of HWTM
