Yes, you can write for Sheepie Niagara

So, about a week ago, a friend of mine contacted me.

They wanted to know if I accepted guest posts.

My response: “I never have, but keep talking.”

After hearing their bits, I gave them the go-ahead to write up a piece and send it over. As long as it wasn’t too far off the mark for this site, I’d probably allow it.

The next day, a different friend asked me the exact same question. I told them the exact same spiel. 

That’s when it hit me: I shouldn’t just “permit” guest posts, I should encourage guest posts.

That’s why I’m starting up “Flock Posts!” These are a series of guest posts on the blog where you can share your views. I like to think of it as the center court of a shopping mall: I’m still running the mall, but guests can come in a hand out their pamphlets (my references are dated and pre-Y2K, deal with it). 

Does that mean that you can write a Flock Post?

Yes!

Of course, there are a few rules to the game:

  1. All posts should be related to the general theme of the blog. This includes, but is not limited to, Niagara Falls, Western New York, lifestyle, food, and music. 
  2. Please don’t write anything aggressive or “political.” This blog is a fun place. Don’t be that soapbox guy screaming at the poor sap eating a pretzel next to the fountain.
  3. I reserve the right to send back stories for edits, or outright reject a story. (If you trash my mall I’m calling security).
  4. Keep it fun!

If you are interested in submitting a post, please email it in a word document, along with any photos, to sheepieniagara@gmail.com .

I’m so excited!
