NYC Metblogs wants you!

moar.gifAs we’ve mentioned before, writing for Metblogs is completely amazing. It will make you charming, famous, and good looking. It slices, dices, and makes julienne fries. When you write for Metblogs, you instantly gain superhuman strength and the ability to fly.

Though it’s entirely possible that the above things are true, we don’t actually guarantee them. However, Metblogs is a pretty fun place to write. It’s 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/writers/authors (or whatever you want your title to be, except King of the World) to this fine site. If you wanna know more about us, check out this wikipedia entry but even reading that is not a requirement. 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 or work in (or very near, and spend a lot of time in) 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. You can even drop f-bombs. It’s entirely up to you.

Additionally, because of our global network, there are plenty of options for things you write to be read by people all over the world. New posts are posted on both our local Twitter account and the Metblogs network Twitter account. Interested? Want more details? Post a comment and we’ll be in touch!

    I live in Hoboken, NJ and work in the FiDi and I’d definitely be interested in contributing. I did have a blog 2003-2006 focusing on politics, movies, and miscellany, but would definitely like to contribute more New York-related posts to NYC Metblogs. These days I am the Webmaster for a mid-size media firm and an amateur photographer ( Let me know if you’re interested.

    I used to write for this site a few years ago when I first moved to New York for college. I thought it would be interesting to post my experiences as a broke ass college student trying to make it in the big city. I didn’t really have any money though, so I never had much to write about. Stories about Friday nights in the computer lab really weren’t that exciting. Sadly enough, I ended up going home for the summer and quit writing for NYC Metblogs. I swore I’d try it out again when I came back, but I found myself in the same boat for the next two years. No money, meant not a lot of fun. But here I am, graduated (but still struggling) and living in New York. Since I can’t seem to land a big girl job, even after six years of exhausting school, I don’t want to waste all of my creative energy. I’m hoping to be able to contribute once again to NYC Metblogs. I still love exploring this city like I am a tourist (minus the slow walking) and would love to share my stories with the world.

    I have a portfolio website,, for my career as an advertising copywriter, and a blog at Also I’m pretty active on Twitter ( and Flickr ( I live in the Upper East Side of Manhattan and have two jobs- one in Chelsea and one near Rockefeller Center. If you still need contributors, please let me know if you’re interested!
