The best camping stories don’t usually come from the biggest expeditions or the most luxurious campsites — they come from those nights spent in tents and lean-tos, telling stories before bed, swapping life experiences with new friends, and waking up to the sound of a nearby bird. Stories about campfires, not electricity; about steak on a stick instead of filet mignon; and about getting dirty instead of staying clean.
Stories about running into friends and family at the local campground, or the smell of fresh-baked bread in the morning. Your Stories about modern conveniences, not ancient styles of outdoor living.
The first step in your “blogging journey” will be to create a blog post about yourself and why you’re interested in pursuing this task. Please feel free to share some personal anecdotes with us to give us a better understanding of who you are and what your goals are.
Being a blogger is more than just writing entries. If you are chosen, we would expect two posts per week on our website www.outdoorlines.com. Content may range from news updates to camping stories, and traveling as a whole (and anything in between).
Articles should be around 500-10,000 words, depending on what kind of post it is. You will be given leads by us on stories if you need inspiration for something to write about. We will expect you to be in contact with us if you have any questions about what kind of post is best for a specific lead.
We are looking for someone who can write well, has a good command of the English language and understands how to write news stories and opinion pieces. If all goes well, this person could become a member of Outdoor Lines‘s team on a full-time basis.
