Community Blog Submission guidelines
Suggested Blog Length: 300-800 words
Possible blog themes or topics:
- Personal stories about the impact of oil and gas development on you and your family
- Research-based articles that bring new concerns or conversations to light about residential oil and gas development
- Point-of-view pieces that state your own perspective on the oil and gas development that’s happening in Broomfield
- Suggestion pieces that reach out to Broomfield, regional, state, or national legislatures that focus on the changes we’d like to see to oil and gas development regulations
- Summary pieces that describe a meeting or event that you took part in and would like to share with the community
What to submit:
- Our managing editor can help make suggestions, but give your article a title if you’re able.
- This is the main content of your article/blog. This is where you will tell your story, state your perspective, or present your research (or maybe all three).
- Short bio (100 words) and picture (optional). We’d love to tell the readers who you are! Please include a bio in your submission. And because people love image, including a photo would help bring your voice to life.
- Contact information. Be sure to let us know your email address and phone number, if possible. It’s likely that our editorial staff may need to reach out to you to discuss revisions, so don’t forget this important piece.
We are grateful for your submission! All submitted blog posts will be reviewed by editorial staff for relevance, content, tone, and grammar/structure. It’s likely that our editors will reach out to you to discuss revisions or additions to your pieces before a final draft is posted to the website. Not all blogs will be published, and pieces will be published at the discretion of the editors and administrative members of the Broomfield Concerned: Coalition of Neighborhoods group.
