You can earn a $50 Plymouth Cards promotional gift card. Plus, we’ll include links to your website and/or social media page(s), if you choose, to give you more exposure for your work. Blog posts are publicized on our website, in our monthly newsletter and on all our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram). If you’re using the cards for your personal use, we would love to have you write an article on how you use the cards.

You! We welcome guest bloggers who are interested in sharing their knowledge and talents with the Plymouth Card audience.

You must also include a minimum of two original images of your own as well as a photo of yourself (can be with family, pets, etc.).
