  1. Tashya Knight

    Hello, I haven’t blogged on this site before so I’m not sure how to submit for the first time but I’m very interested in contributing here. I would love to write #56-If I had known this growing up-5 life tips and #69-What made me realize it was time for me to be me. There is another topic I’m interested in but I know we can choose 2 plus not sure I could realistically complete in the 2 week time frame so maybe next time or another month. Thank you!

  2. Nadia Kim

    Question. Do we chose yes for pre approved monthly submission? How do we indicate that the submission is for the blog roll call? Also I noticed my name isn’t next to 34 but it looks like it was accepted?

    1. The Wellness Universe Post author

      Hi @nadiakim thank you for catching that! No you are not doing a monthly submission, these are ‘one offs’. You don’t need to indicate it was from this list upon submission. Thank you – good questions!
