Call for Submissions

Posted on April 21, 2011 by


We’re looking for submissions and suggestions for the blog from the TLG community. Right now we’re looking for websites to add to our blogroll, question ideas for our weekly poll, links for our current events and news posts, ideas for posts, and writing samples from people interested in becoming a TLG blogger or guest blogger.


Here’s a list of what we’re looking for and how to get it to us:

Blogs and links: If you know of any blogs by TLGers or blogs relevant to TLG that you think should be in our blogroll, please leave a comment here with the link(s). The same applies for other websites, including but not limited to travel sites, news media, social networking, weather forecasts, and anything else you think TLGers should know about. For a general idea of what we mean you can look at our links section in the sidebar.

Polls: We hope to conduct weekly polls of TLG volunteers and other website visitors about topics of interest to the TLG community. To do that, we need to think of good questions to ask. If you can think of any, we’d like to hear them! Comment here with the question and if we feature it in one of our polls, not only will you get, bragging rights, but you might even get an answer to your question!

News and Events: We want to know what’s going on. An elderly woman turns off the internet in Armenia? A TLG volunteer marries a Georgian native? Coolio returns for an encore performance in Batumi? Tell us about it! We’l feature links and stories about current events in a weekly or biweekly news roundup post.

Guest Posts: If you would like to write a guest post, you can comment on this entry with your idea or your contact info (all comments will be screened and email addresses will be kept private). We’ll let you know if it’s something we’d be interested in featuring here. Pending news from above, guest posts may even be rewarded with a small monetary bonus to your TLG salary!

Become a Contributor: If you would like to become a regular contributor to the TLG blog, comment here (same as above – comments are screened and contact info is kept private) and we’ll get in touch with you for a writing sample and to talk about details. We’re looking for two or three contributors to write us at least one post per month, and as with guest posts we will be looking to offer a small bonus for each post.

Suggestions: We’d love to hear suggestions for this website from the readers! Feel free to comment here about things like site layout, user experience, content, and anything else related to the TLG blog.
