Wanted: Additional Authors

GreenSpot-On would like to find a couple more Authors or Guest Bloggers.  Are you possibly that person?  Our goal is to make this blog a collective effort between people that have similar hobbies and interests!  Some of us have children, jobs, busy lives and unfortunately cannot post daily on a blog due to time constraints and commitments.  To keep content running constantly through GreenSpot-On we have been on a constant search for additional people to help!

Topics will be limited to Environmental & Wildlife Conservation/Education, Green Living, Recycling, Reuse and categories that lie within that range.  You can even do Do it yourself (DIY) projects and recycling/reuse art's & crafts! We are flexible!

We are looking for the following:

1. People who are interested in being a part of a collective effort on educating the public on these subjects areas.
2. Who are passionate about one or more of these subjects.
3. Who work well with others.
4. Can keep their work G-Rated (Remember the kids).
5. Can cite sources (With links if there are any sources used) for your writing.

We have received a few questions regarding a potential guest blogger or author positions on GreenSpot-On.  Please feel free to ask us questions!  Below are the questions some people had and the answers we provided:

Do I have to live in a particular place?  There are no restrictions on where you live.  Currently we have authors from Colorado, Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio in the United States. It does not matter if you live outside of the U.S. because we have readers that live outside of the U.S. too!

What days are open for posting to GreenSpot-On?  What happens if I can't post on my day due to commitments?  Currently we are trying to get an author for almost every day of the week.  The days that are already taken are Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.  Occasionally there may be an extra post by the other authors on your day for posts like this one.  Sometimes the authors cannot post one week due to commitments and post the following week.  You can write posts ahead of time and schedule them to publish to the blog on a specific day and time if you want!

Do I have to be a mother or female?  There are no restrictions on being a male or female author.  You also do not have to be a parent but please remember that this is a family friendly blog and all authors are expected to treat it accordingly when posting.

Do you allow cross-posting?  Three of our current authors also have their own blogs, some of them do cross-posts (For those that do not know, it means that they sometimes post the same post to both blogs.  Though this is not the case every time).  It is a great way to get separate blogging communities to interact and helps drum up comments, questions and more for both blogs!  It also offers the authors a bit more flexibility and time to write.

Do I have to have my own blog to become an author on GreenSpot-On?  No, you don't have to have your own blog to become an author here.

We hope you will consider being an author or guest blogger here and can't wait to hear from you!

Thanks for the compliment! This is a volunteer work, we make no money doing this. So there would be no compensation. We just have a love for what we talk about and want to share:)
