Submitting Blogs

Hi!

Do you know anyone who is incarcerated? Would they like to contribute to Inmate Blogger?

Blogging offers a wide range of opportunity. The topics that inmates choose to write about is entirely up to them (ex: prison life, society, relationships, law, poems, short stories, personal struggles, inner thoughts, religion, or ANYTHING they want). We welcome all writers, regardless of their writing experience.

We currently accept blogs via JPay.com. If your incarcerated loved one has a JPay account…perfect! Simply have them send a JPay invite to:  inmateblogger@gmail.com. After I receive their invite, I will email them an introduction letter. If your loved one does not have a JPay account, they may have someone email their typed blogs to me at inmateblogger@gmail.com.

Our services are free, however Donations are appreciated.

Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

Suzie Jennings

  1. I live in Scotland. So I’m the other
    side of the Atlantic. I think what you are doing is terrific. What I
    don’t quite understand, and perhaps you can explain it to me, is the
    security angle. Here in Britain prisoners aren’t allowed mobile phones
    and access to the internet is extremely restricted. Even hand-written
    letters in some jails are photocopied to avoid the psychotropic drug
    ‘spice’ getting into the prison soaked into the paper of the original
    missive. So, how do you’re prisoners post online?

    • Hello to you over in Scotland. 🙂 I’ve been meaning to write you back. Thank you for reaching out.

      Many prison facilities here is the US have an email software system called JPay (jpay.com). It is specifically designed for prisoners, and it does not give them direct access to the internet. All their JPay emails are read and are then either approved or disapproved by prison officials.

      Inmates here in the US are not allowed mobile phones either.

      I currently accept typed blogs from inmates via JPay. Some inmates who do not have this email service available at their facility have someone send me their blogs to my email at inmateblogger@gmail.com.

      The inmates do not actually post blogs online…I do that part. All their blogs get emailed to me, and then I post them here on my site.

      Hope this helped with your curiosity 🙂
      Have a lovely day.

  2. I currently get notifications of blogs by several inmates. I would like to reduce this to just one in particular inmate. How can I make this change? Thanks for your reply.
