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’m interested!

    Melbourne to me is like the warm doona you put over your head on a cold winter’s night. It’s welcoming, comforting and just a lovely place to be!

    Count me in!

    I live, work, laugh, cry, bleed, sweat, succeed and fail here. Melbourne is the best city there is, but it’s not without it’s faults. I got here when i was 4 and I’ve spent over 25 years here. I’ve seen it grow and I’ve grown with it. It’s not all gold and it has a gritty side, but I love its mish-mash of everything from everywhere and how it feels to be here.

    And I hate Sydney just because.
