A new year has arrived, and with it, hopefully tons of new adventures for the many geocachers around the world. I’m reaching out to you today, as the blog manager here on Geocache Talk (aka Angie), to please consider sharing one of your stories or insights or DIY tricks to our blog here this year. Make it a goal or resolution – or dare I say – challenge!
I’m stepping out from behind my computer screen, letting you know that we have very few new posts in my queue. I have my own blog (Geocaching Jangie) and you listen to the guys on the podcast every week; I’m sure you’d appreciate hearing another person’s perspective for our monthly blog post. But I get it, life is busy and writing comes hard and slow for some. Here’s a few ideas for series I’d like to publish this year with hopes to help get the geo-juices flowing – and always know that I’m here if you need someone to proofread/edit/brainstorm alongside you.
The Best Cache I Never Found
The Geocaching Junkie started this series on the Geocache Talk blog. The idea is to share your favorite DNF, the most epic or memorable geocaching outing you had without claiming a smiley in the end.
It’s a Small Caching World After All…
I have a story that I will share down the road that falls into this series. This thought came to me as I’ve slowly realized how “small” the geocaching community can be at times. We all have those weird connections or 6 degrees of separation between cachers – share your strange “small world” experience!
How do you combine geocaching and another one of your favorite hobbies – like I do with writing? Are you into art and design? Engineering? 3D printing? Skiing? Let us know how geocaching mixes well with your other interests.
Following the Show
Maybe you feel like the guys and/or host from a previous podcast episode didn’t address an area on the topic they were discussing and you would like to add more. Please do!
Areas to Consider When Submitting a Post
The goal of this blog is to share perspectives and stories, connecting us further in the geocaching community. I have yet to deny any piece sent to me, nor do I intend to say “no” in the future. All I ask, when you’re preparing a piece to send to me is that you:
- Make sure that your topic and piece is family friendly.
- Include 2-3 pictures (minimum).
- Write up a short bio about yourself.
- Relax and have fun!
That’s it! No sweat!
I hope you consider submitting a piece this year that falls into one of these mini series – or any other geocaching-related topic. Please let me know if you have any questions!
