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!

    Lol, you guys never talk about the trolls, personal attacks on comments ever, don’t you? I’m glad you gotta advertise to get people to write here, go metblogs! We know you will survive!

    Actually since we added registration and people are accountable for the things they say most of that has disappeared completely, but we also don’t talk about the fact that you need a web browser, electrical power, to be able to read, etc because it’s the internet and some things are just obvious. ;)

    Yeah, moderation. I guess that’s the word.

    No, not really. That implies some after the fact editing and we don’t do that.

    oh comeon! I was so excited reading this entry, thinking I now have more space to talk about dear ol Madras, but I guess I don’t qualify! *humpff*

    Fine, I shall just stick to reading and cringe everytime I hear *chennai* instead of Madras. :\

    i just cant figure out how to post a blog here

  18. Sean Bonner (seanbonner) on August 18th, 2008 @ 8:40 pm

    Rudhran, you have to be set up as an author to post to the blog. Not just anyone can do that. Most people can only post comments. Are you interested in joining us as an author?
