Editorial: We're seeking area voices
We're interested in featuring your voice on our website through an Area Voices blog.
The Park Rapids Enterprise is looking to build an online community in our area featuring our readers and their interests.
We've already featured some voices on our website under the "Our Voices" heading. These include:
'All about Food' by columnist Sue Doeden at allaboutfood.areavoices.com
'Astro Bob,' featuring celestial happenings you can see from your own backyard at astrobob.areav oices.com
'Capitol Chatter' by our Capitol reporter Don Davis at capitolchat.areavoices.com
'Outdoors with Sam Cook,' a blog exploring the north woods at samcook.areavoices.com
We're looking to add bloggers to write about family, travel, food, money, health or any other topic. We will select certain blogs to be featured on the home page of our website, www.parkrapidsenterprise.com.
The idea is to create a dialogue among our readers and our community. AreaVoices.com is a large community of bloggers and readers, with more than 1.2 million page views last month.
The possibilities are endless. If you'd like to share your insights on a topic, post nature photos or video, here is your opportunity. Readers will also have the opportunity to comment and start a dialogue on certain topics.
The key ingredient is you. We'd like to see blogs about school activities, sports, the outdoors, exercising, community organizations, hobbies and more.
If you have another blog set up already, that can easily be converted to an Area Voices blog, along with the entire archive. With Area Voices you will have a wide, new community audience.
Your blog could even be featured on other Forum Communications websites in the region.
If you're interested in writing a blog, go to area voices.com and register. Let us know about your blog so we can consider featuring it our website. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks in advance for your interest. We'd like to see the community grow online through shared voices.
