Applied To Be a Blogger

This afternoon I sent in an email to apply to be a Hot Chocolate Blogger. I am sure it is a long shot - seeing as I normally only have about 10 readers of my posts (5 of which are family members) - but I figured I might as well give it the old college try!

I participated in the San Diego Hot Chocolate 15K earlier this year and when I saw the Facbeook post this afternoon advertising this opportunity I thought it would be awesome.

In case you are interested in applying as well - here are the details:

We are seeking a team of local bloggers who love to blog, love to run, and of course, love chocolate!

The Hot Chocolate Blogger Program is a group of online blogging influencers who not only specialize in talking about running, health or fitness, but have cultivated an online community around their passion for running. We welcome all runners of all types to apply- no matter your pace or skill level.  We only require that you love running, have had a few races and months of blogging under your belt, and want to help others in their running journey.
 What We’re Looking For In A Hot Chocolate Blogger:
  • Our bloggers have a unique voice and a cultivated influence around their blog topic (fitness, running, health).
  • At least 6-12 months of blogging experience.
  • Love social media & have followings on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook & Instagram.
  • Have participated in several races or fitness events (5ks are ideal).
  • Ability to attend their local Hot Chocolate race and promote regularly online ahead of time.
  • Be able to post on your blog about the Hot Chocolate series, run a giveaway and possibly guest post on our blog.
Perks of being a Hot Chocolate Blogger:
  • Comped race entry & an extra race entry to giveaway on your blog.
  • A V.I.P. swag bag of training gear and Hot Chocolate Merch.
  • Cross promotion of your blog on our website and social media channels (with over 150k fans on Facebook!)
  • Ability to earn prizes and perks for your influence and promotion.
  • More to come, please inquire for details!
