I want to keep the focus on the CYL Squad. After all, you all are the backbone of this community. Which is why I have created a variety of blog series exclusively for members. Feel free to read through a few of the series and see if any of seem like a fit! Use the forms below each category to get a spot on the editorial calendar.
(If do not see any dates in the dropdown menu, spots are now full. More will open early Summer. Watch calendar and Facebook for announcements.)
This series is Q&A style and consists of 10 questions. Nice and simple. CYL Asks is designed to introduce you to the general CYL Community. Use the form below and select a date if interested.
Visual studio tours
This monthly series is very visual and designed to give a peek into your workspace. I'm looking for 4-7 photos, with a 1-2 sentence caption per photo. You can also include a short intro if you'd like. Along with the blog post, there will be a support Instagram post. Use the form below and select a date if interested.
This monthly series is more personal and a narrative about taking perceived failure and turning into a positive. I'm looking for roughly 700 words, with 2-3 companion photos. Along with the blog post, there will be a support Instagram post. Use the form below and select a date if interested.
A DAY IN THE LIFE
The intent behind this post to share a day in the life of a maker/artist/business owner. How you start your day, your work process, if you take time to step away, how you wind down and transition to the later part of your day, etc.. Something true and pretty indicative of your real life.
Have an original idea or something special you would like to write a post on? I'd love to hear it! I'm especially interested in inspirational stories or topical stories. Use the form below and select a date if interested.
Once a month I will open a spot on the CYL Instagram for a takeover! The idea behind this is to boost engagement, offer cross-promotion and give some insight into our Squad members. Each takeover will last for one 24-hour period. Because the feed is curated I am going to be going through a selection and approval process for this opportunity.
To be considered please thoughtfully fill out the form below.
Every month I will be choosing a theme for the CYL Instagram. I'd love to have the voices of the Squad members be heard, so I'm opening this up. Feel free to apply to one of themes below, or all! Because the feed is curated I am going to be going through a selection and approval process for this opportunity.
April means Earth Day! During this month I want to explore our connection to nature. Feel free to talk about our obligation to this planet; what steps you are taking to be a steward to Earth; how nature impacts your work... the sky is the limit!
For the month of CYL is going to celebrate mothers. The impact they have had on our lives; how they have shaped us; what they have done to encourage and influence our dreams and goals. If you'd like to contribute, please fill out the form below for consideration.
If you have an event coming up and want it considered for publication on the CYL public calendar, I'd love to hear it!
