CALLING ALL WRITERS! BECOME A GOVLOOP FEATURED BLOGGER

At GovLoop, we pride ourselves on our community. There are over 250,000 of you — government employees, industry partners, and knowledge experts — who are extremely engaged. You comment on nearly a thousand posts and discussions each month. You talk to each other in the comments about your experiences, dreams and tips. You share your ideas, and inspire one another to be better and do more in the public sector.

Many of you are also prolific GovLoop bloggers. You write about everything from open source in your agency, to best leadership practices, to innovation in government. We here at GovLoop love your blog posts (we’re sort of obsessed with them, actually), and look forward to the new, great contributions we know we’ll be seeing every day.

And it’s exactly because your contributions to GovLoop are so terrific, and so valuable, that we’re looking to expand on them. Today, we’re announcing the thirteenth round of the GovLoop Featured Blogger Challenge.

We’ve already had a very successful eleven runs of this program with nearly 200 amazing GovLoop Featured Bloggers (whose posts you can read here) and we’re looking to keep the momentum going with a bunch of fresh, fascinating new voices who can write about everything from the best way to hold a meeting in the government to how to create the most effective individual development plan.

The details: We’re looking for 15 (or more!) great GovLoop voices to blog once a week for the GovLoop community throughout July, August and September. We want you to write about subjects you think are important — from experiences at your agency, to the way big data is impacting your job, to tips on how to increase fed engagement — really, anything that strikes your fancy. If it’s important to you, it’s important to us, and we want it on GovLoop.

What’s in it for you? A lot (we think — but we’re biased!). In addition to having your writing read by our community of 250,000, you’ll get:

  • A featured homepage slot on GovLoop every time you post
  • Promotion of your posts to our social network communities (and we’ll promote your handles, too)
  • Recognition of your efforts and status via a special GovLoop Featured Blogger banner
  • A package of free GovLoop swag (t-shirts, stickers, and more)
  • Great published clips, and a great line on your resume
  • A free, half-hour career counseling and resume review session with GovLoop founder Steve Ressler
  • Feedback, writing tips and blog guidance from our Director of Content

If you’re interested in entering, it’s easy. All you have to do is email courtney@govloop.com with three blog post ideas, a writing sample, and your resume. Please use the subject line “GovLoop Featured Blogger.”

Any questions? Leave a comment on this post, or tweet @GovLoop or email Courtney. We look forward to your ideas, thoughts, and content, and can’t wait to see what comes next.

We’ll be accepting applications until June 23rd. Those chosen as featured bloggers will be notified the week of June 26th. Featured bloggers will need to start writing once a week starting the week of July 17th and will finish their stint in the beginning of October.
