I know some GK-area folks still read this. And this is why I am passing this information along. If you've always been interested in breaking into travel writing, this could be your chance! Proximity to Aachen and Maastrict probably count, I think.
Feel free to pass this along to anyone you think might be interested. (Tiffany, if you see this, you might want to post this on your blog.)
Do you know people in Europe who would like to write about their city?
We are a new city-blog network (www.spottedbylocals.com). For expansion in Europe we're looking for a lot of locals that like to write about their city!
Who are we looking for?
As a Spotter you do not have to be a professional journalist. English will probably not be your mother tongue. That’s OK! Most important of all is that you:
> Live in a large city in Europe;
> Consider yourself a local (you don’t have to be a native);
> Love your city, and you would like to share your enthusiasm by writing about it;
> Have a bit of spare time (a couple of hours per month).
What’s in it for you?
An opportunity to promote yourself online. Also, we will compensate you financially by a share of advertising income.
Are you interested? Do you know anybody that may be interested? Please let me know!
