Now it’s even easier to write for us!

The old system was rather… well…. a serious pain in the ass!

I’d ask for volunteers, get comments back, collect them, email those interested with the guidelines, then take those that I didn’t scare off and email the boss cc’ing the potential new writer. The last step would be him, at some point, replying and setting up new writer with an account, etc.


I ask for volunteers. People register to comment, say they’re interested, I give the details (below) and then I, Me, on my own, can flip their commenter account, to be a writer account, and, as Emeril says, “BAM” the metblog has a new author.

so the guidelines, you gotta be willing to write 3 times a week about Denver. ok, that’s all. :)

Perks? Aside of fame, notoriaty, your name on the intertubes, and the bragging rights to say, “I’m a metblog author” to your friends… well that’s about it :) You get to write, with a great group of local bloggers, get your name and your words out there, and hey, if we top and of the metblog charts, there’s prizes, drinks on me!

If you’ve got something to say, about the Denver Metro and surrounding areas leave a comment. For those that responded to my last call, re-up! I missed the deadline for adding folks to the new system, so now, fer-realz, you’ll be in!

    I’ve been a long time reader and some time commenter of the Denver Metblog – if there is an open slot for writers, I’m in!

    It looks like Nicole is gone so I could write about the Boulder neighborhood of Denver if the offer is still open.

    Is it too late to sign up? I would like to try my hand at authoring for the metblog, if you are still looking for people… :)
