We are sometimes looking for bloggers / photographers who would like to share their thoughts and pictures in a series of “expert view” blog posts related to city life on this Spotted by Locals company blog.
- You’re a city lover
- You live in big North American or European city (preferably one of “our” cities)
- You have a unique angle / subject you want to blog about (see below)
- You can commit to writing 1 or 2 articles a month, for at least 6 months
- A series of articles about a city life related subject
- A “subject” angle, and not a “one city” angle. Write about examples in multiple cities (preferably “our” cities)
Some examples: bicycle culture in big cities, street photography, street art, mobile city life apps, a report of a tour around “our” cities
What we can offer you:
- Our audience: a lot of city loving people around the world will be reading your blog posts
- A reference: we’d love to tell other people how good of a writer / photographer you are (Linkedin, or recommendation letter)
- Use images you took yourself, or ones you’ve been allowed to use by the photographer
(tip: find creative commons licensed pictures via Flickr)
- Landscape pictures only
- Keep the Spotted by Locals target group in mind: city lovers, frequent travelers, 20 – 40 years old
- Minimum amount of words: 150 (unless you’re a photo blogger). Maximum: 250 words
- You can promote your own blog / product in your article occasionally, but keep it subtle.
And disclose any relevant affiliations if you write about a project /service / product you’re involved in.
- Articles you publish on our blog need to be unique – not published on your blog or any other blog in original or any modified form
- You can only write under your real name, not under an alias
- Please promote your articles online wherever you can!
We will review each individual post, and may give you some tips to improve it before we publish. We are not obliged to publish each article you send.
