Blog for Cascadia Inspired

Become a Guest Blogger

If you are interested in guest blogging, email me at tracy [at] cascadiainspired.com with a writing sample and a proposal for your topic. Posts should fit our site mission and themes, include at least one image, and if they are text-based, be about 500 to 1000 words. This is a creative blog, so I’m open to out-of-the-box post ideas!

Become a Staff Blogger

Cascadia Inspired is a young blog and needs more collaborators to represent a broader area of the Pacific Northwest. I’m looking for bloggers from the Cascadia bioregion — Washington, Oregon, Idaho, western Montana, western British Columbia, and southern Alaska — for an initial commitment of two blog posts per month for three months. Textual blog posts would be 300 to 1000 words and include at least one image. Non-textual post styles could include artist features, playlists, photo series, and seasonal menus / recipes.

Responsibilities:

  • Blog twice a month on scheduled dates on an approved topic of your choice
  • Make an image or find a CC-licensed image to accompany your blog post
  • Moderate and respond to comments on your blog posts
  • Link to your blog post on blog’s facebook and twitter accounts and follow related conversation there

Qualifications:

  • Skilled writer with personality
  • Reliable and responsive
  • Experienced blogging (esp. using wordpress) or using other social media platforms — preferred but not required
  • Enthusiastic about art, the outdoors, building a PNW identity, or conserving nature — preferably all of the above

If you’re interested, send me an email at tracy [at] cascadiainspired.com to introduce yourself. Please include a comparable writing sample and a link to your blog if applicable. Then we can figure out if you’d be a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. Hi,

    My name is Claryn Bowell and I am a writer, crafter and a DIY enthusiast. I am one of the bloggers in 3BStreet a hub for independent artists, crafters and DIY enthusiasts. Our blog posts are written by professional writers who are also good in these niches. Since we are just starting out, I am looking for great community that can help me reach out more people interested to our niche. I know that you accept guest posts on your site, so I’m reaching out to pitch a topic that I think would resonate with your audience. I am planning to write an article that I think your audience would really like.

    I write topics about DIY and craft tutorials. Here is a link to one of the articles I wrote on my blog http://blog.3bstreet.com/5-amazingly-creative-uses-christmas-lights.html. You can suggest topics that I can write for your blog or I can send you an article about DIY or crafting for you to review.

    Hope you consider. I am excited to hear from you soon.

    Please let me know if you like this post idea or would like me to write about something else and I can get started right away.

    Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Cheers,
    Claryn Bowell
