Before you fill out the information, we'd like to tell you about who we are, and what types of contributions we are looking for. That way, you will know if you're still interested before we get excited about you!
WHO ARE WE?
BrazenWoman.com is a lifestyle site for women 35+ who know what they want and are ready to go out and get it. At BrazenWoman.com, we are a woman’s best friend. We know that women over 35 shop for the same jeans and lip gloss, eat at the same restaurants, drink the same cocktails, and go to the same gyms as younger women, but they are are tired of reading articles written in a voice they can't relate to.
The Brazen Woman is the same woman she was at 25, only smarter and more discerning. She wants higher end products and experiences, presented in a fun, smart, lighthearted voice. She's looking for the inside track on how to enjoy all the best that life has to offer. She doesn't want to talk about kids all the time, or she doesn't have any, and so, BrazenWoman is a kid-free zone.
HOW WE REACH HER
We share the most up-to-date and up-and-coming products and experiences in a lighthearted, positive, unbiased, excited, casual, sassy tone, always with our friend's best interests at heart. Imagine how you'd talk if you were dishing over a glass of wine.
We are big on recommendations – giving the scoop about what we’ve tried and liked or have heard is great.
Beware, though. We are not telling our life story – we talk about our own lives as they relate to the product or experience. (How did you find it? What is it for? Why is it great? How does it change/enhance your life?)
BrazenWoman is NOT a storytelling site.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR IN POSTS
Short & direct posts – between 300-400 words (our busy women are probably reading on a mobile phone!)

Be honest – if you don’t like something, say so, but try to find the benefits first
