About This Blog


Are you interested in submitting or networking

The Brummet's Conscious Blog and our other blog, Drum It With Brummet, both accept queries for poems, articles, product reviews and interviews. Drum It With Brummet is geared toward musicians and music teachers with a heavy slant toward drummers and percussionists. While Brummet's Conscious Blog focuses on living consciously knowing that every moment offers a chance to create a better world. You will find inspiring quotes, helpful articles, intriguing interviews, informative product reviews, amusing stories, memes and whatever else we feel will interest our readers. 

Interviews are in Q&A format and fall within the realm of writing, the world of music, entrepreneurial, managing or volunteering with non-profits and maintaining blogs.

For instance
- an entrepreneur interview may discuss running a business, behind the scenes activities, time management, green in-house policies, tips to avoid pitfalls, marketing, encouraging advice and so on.

- an author interview varies with each author, their experience and the genre that they write in, however it may include: stories about their journey, advice, favorite marketing resources or promotion activities.

- a nonprofit interview will highlight the operations and activities of the organization, it will reveal the experiences of working in a nonprofit, social/community event participation, volunteering, managing networking, grant application and more.

- a blogger interview will share behind the scenes of managing and promoting a blog, possible networking opportunities, tips for time management and avoiding pitfalls, success stories, etc. 


We also accept queries for product reviews, however we do not offer book review services.  Feel free to send us your suggestions for specific-themed posts such as Just for Writers (tips and resources for writers) Recommended Resource (usually non-profits) or Kudo's (celebrating people or business doing wonderful things).

If you have an eco or community event coming up you'd like us to promote or an article, resource to share on one of our blogs, or to request a topic for us to cover, we are willing to take a look at it. 


We also publish inspiring quotes and poetry. We share helpful resources and also highlight inspiring non-profits in the Recommended Resource posts. We have a new section, published mid-monthly, titled Just For Writers - offering resources, marketing opportunities, tips, quotes and advice for writers. 

Be sure to keep in mind that we are often scheduling posts several months in advance.
