Our readers have asked that we create and share more community content so we’re ramping up our website and need your help.

Do you run, volunteer, support or benefit from a local non-profit and want us to highlight it to our readers?

Are you involved with a meetup group or other semi-formal group and you’d like us to help you spread the word about your activities, purpose, or direction?

Do you have an upcoming event you’d like to share with the community or perhaps have a number of events?

Are you a local business owner/manager or is there a business or community member that you thinks deserves recognition?

These are all things we want to hear about! We’re also looking specifically for:

  1. Teachers to spotlight particularly if they did something interesting or unique with their students/class
  2. Firefighters, police or other community service professionals who are either new to the job (under 3 years), approaching retirement (under 3 years from retirement), or who moonlight with other activities
  3. Restaurant owners or managers particularly those who run restaurants with a unique specialty (food, ambiance, music, etc.) or with an interesting back story that led to the restaurant
  4. Local athletes who have enjoyed recent success or experienced unique setbacks or challenges
  5. Your favorite DIY projects, recipes, household tips and the like

If you or someone you know fits any of the descriptions above or has a story you’d like to contribute, we’d love to spotlight them for our community. Please complete the form below for consideration making sure to include all the relevant details to help us get started.

Paid Placements

All content, but particularly paid placements, must meet our quality guidelines which require content to be educational, informative and/or entertaining (i.e. not a sales pitch). We reserve the right edit or deny all submissions that do not meet this criteria at our sole discretion.

Local Voices (Regular Contrubutor)

If this sounds like you and you want to reach a greater audience then please complete the form below making sure to include the topic you’d like to write about, a sample of your work and how often you’d like to contribute. Each contributor will be setup as an author on our system and will be highlighted as such throughout the site.
