Got a blog? Want to start blogging?
Locals know the best things to do, places to eat, and more about their regions. We’re looking for a few … hundred thousand … who want to tell the world about their own town in their own way.
Yes, we want you!
Hey, what kind of nut would write a pitch like THAT? Oh, it’s me.
I’m still not sure if Facebook is the best platform for the local blogger project I’ll soon start in earnest but it seems like a good place to start the search for other local voices.
One great aspect of blogs and the internet is the ability to connect locals to visitors before, during, and after a travel experience. I’m big on blogging and travel and would love to join with others who share that interest in an effort to eventually “cover the globe” with local voices from every region.
I think the key to success will actually be the *lack* of formal structure for the project, though obviously it’ll be helpful to have a site that will allow easy navigation to the various blogs and will mashup travel information about the regions along these lines.
P.S. If you are interested in this and don’t want to join facebook or don’t have a blog yet that’s fine – send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org I think we can find a good way for everybody who is interested to participate in the project.
