Come Blog With Us

moar.gifWriting for Metblogs has the potential to be the most rewarding experience in your entire life. It’ll make you rich, famous, good looking, will help you lose weight, make your clothes fit better, and get you a super good deal on a new car. It will make you the most well known person on the entire planet. Yes, each and every one of you. Really.

OK maybe not. Actually those are all lies, but it’s fun at least. The truth is Metblogs is the largest network of locally focused blogs on the web, covering almost 60 cities around the world and we’re looking to add a few new bloggers/writters/authors to this fine site. If you wanna know more about us check out this wikipedia entry but it’s kinda boring so I won’t waste time repeating it all here again. If you wanna write for us, here’s the scoop:

  • All author positions are volunteer. That means you don’t get paid.
  • You must live in (or very near) the city you plan to write about.
  • Anything you post must relate to the city somehow. That means you shouldn’t post a movie review, but talking about going to see a movie at a local theater is fine.
  • There’s no requirement for how much you can or should write, but we ask that if we set you up as an author you make about 3 posts a week.
  • You can post about things you love, you can post about things you hate. It’s entirely up to you

Additionally, because of our global network, there’s plenty of options for things you write to be read by people all over the world. Interested? Want more details? Post a comment and we’ll be in touch!

    Hey-I’d like to add myself to this mix. I have a personal blog that isn’t particularly DC based but I’d like something that would keep me thinking about writing about the city.

    Please let me know how and if I can join up.

    Hello… I’m definitely interested in contributing to Metblogs. I’m a recent transplant to the DC area, me being from the Northeast and my wife from the deep South… it’s been an interesting time so far and I’d love to be able to write about at least some of it. Please let me know how I might be able to make this happen. Thanks!

    Hi there – I’d like to contribute to DC Metblogs. I have lots of experience as a contributing blogger at and other sites. I live in Silver Spring and have lived in the area for a long time so I have a good read on what’s going on.

    Looking forward to hearing from you. Laurie

    I have caved and registered for the site. Painful, but I bit the bullet as I am interested in becoming an author for DC Metblog. I live in Dupont Circle, work in Arlington, travel by metro/bike/car, and somehow think I notice things that would be of interest to the masses. I agree 3-4 posts per week is an ideal level for interaction. Please let me know what you need to know, or what else you’re looking for, in an author.
