Seminole County has stories to share. Will you help us tell them?
Within close-knit communities like those of Seminole County, we all have our sources. The person you call first when you need tips for getting your garden through an early frost, the babysitter with the best ideas to get the kids outside to play, the friend who’s always up on the best eats in town. Maybe you’ve been known to field a few calls in your day. If you’re a local expert or just a passionate person with some worthwhile things to share, we want to hear from you!
Seminole Magazine and Route 46 Entertainment District are looking for a local voice from each of Seminole’s seven major cities: Longwood, Lake Mary, Sanford, Alamonte Springs, Casselberry, Winter Springs and Oviedo. Through weekly posts on SeminoleMagazine.com, our bloggers will become local leaders in fostering the sense of community that we all share across Seminole Country. Not only will our seven contest winners be given their own personal access to SeminoleMagazine.com to share their interests, knowledge and perspective, but the winners will also be treated to a $100 gift certificate to Route 46!
We’re looking for enthusiastic individuals to share their passions, hobbies and interests with the wider community. You’ll be able to combine a relevant local perspective with timely topics of interest on your very own soapbox. Writing for SeminoleMagazine.com means you can experience everything great about blogging without having to build your own brand or worry about driving traffic to your site. As a Route 46 “Building Community” blogger, we’ll handle all of the technology, the SEO (that’s Search Engine Optimization or how you show up higher in a Google search), and promotion to ensure that your words are read by the Seminole community. We hope that, in time, you’ll become as much a conversation starter and local guide as you are a writer.
Not a seasoned writer? No problem. We welcome interesting personalities over professionals to share their thoughts with us each week, though we do appreciate a slick turn of phrase and aptly applied alliteration here and there.
Don’t think this is for you? That’s OK, because you can still help us find the best folks for the contest and participate in the conversation. Maybe you know just the person we’re looking for. Point them our way using our social sharing options online. And there’s always the old fashioned way – tell your nominee in person!
It’s easy to enter:
- Sign in, so we know who you are, and then tell us about yourself…
- Tell us down in the comments why you think you’d be a great contributor, why you’re passionate about that topic and why you love living in the Seminole County.
- Share your reply with family and friends and get them to vote for you… anyone on the site can vote for their favorites but you don’t want to leave it to chance. Do you?
Once you’ve entered, remember to share the contest page with your friends and family. They can vote for you and all of their favorite personalities right on our site. The most popular entrants (and those we just plain like) will be invited to post as a “Building Community” blogger. From all of us at Seminole Magazine and Route 46, we can’t wait to hear from you!
