This post is a bit different, as it’s less about the functionality of the app/the values of the community/the problems with hospex and their possible solutions/etc. While many people are hard at work tackling those topics, we’re also starting to look at Couchers.org’s presence on the web, namely with its own blog!
And we are looking for volunteers interested in writing for said blog!
What exactly the blog will look like is still in the early planning stages but we have a general idea of travel- and hospex(duh)-related content. These would include narrative posts, such as recountings of memorable couchsurfing and hosting experiences (whether funny, or life-changing, or just a totally unique experience), and listicle posts, such as travel tips.
Do you have a story to tell? Is there an epic travel memory rattling around the back of your skull, waiting to be spilled through your keyboard to its dream audience? Have you been looking for the excuse to make the time to put it into words?
Respond here if you’re interested in writing for the blog and maybe a sentence or two about what you would like to write about. Or you can skip to messaging me directly. Either way I will contact you directly to talk more about what (and how) you want to contribute!
