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!

    I would love to blog for Boston. I am living in Cambridge, MA currently while I attend graduate school at Harvard. It’s a doctoral program, so I’ll be here for a while. I am also from Boston, and grew up in JP. I have my own personal blog so I am very familiar with the format.

    We’re a (justice) league of college students living in cambridge interested in writing for metblogs boston. We follow the boston scene of music, art, sneakers, and other events of general awesomeness going on in boston. We’re the guys that know the best sandwich place, or if we don’t we’ll die trying to discover it. We’ve been here for two years, and are interested in writing for metblogs. Hit us up.

    I’m interested in joining the Boston bloggers on I’m a twenty-something year-old who has grown up in eastern Massachusetts and will be moving to Somerville later this week. From my post on Broadway, I hope to bring some new life to Boston Metblogs.

    What I would love to see on the Boston site is more coverage of the city’s cultural events, more media (photos, videos, audio), and more op-ed style commentaries. Since the Weekly Dig has rolled over and died a bit in recent months (I blame glossy covers), Boston Metblogs needs to step it up and provide resident Bostonians with the written insight and wit they’ve come to expect from Boston publications. I’m confident that alongside my fellow Boston bloggers, we can transform Boston Metblogs into the best thirty-minutes our visitors kill at work, each day.

    Hi, can i write for you guys? I found out about Metblogs in Good magazine and you are right–there is too little information out there on the web regarding the local scene. I am a graduate student, studying art, origianlly from California but living in Boston/ Cambridge now since 2004–I live in Beacon Hill, Boston, and would love to have an excuse to go out and explore the city in the name of "research" for the blog!

    I’d definately be interested. I lived in Jamaica Plain for two years as a non-student and now I live in Brookline and go to UMB as a tentative English major.
