ScooterFile is about to celebrate its one year anniversary, and I couldn’t be more proud of, and excited by, what the site has become. What started as just a handful of posts has grown into nearly 200 stories featuring everything from scooter reviews to tales of European scooter tours. The site has grown and so has its readership — something for which we’re heartily grateful.
Thing is, we’re just getting started.
ScooterFile continues to grow in scope and quality and it’s time to take it to that next level. It’s time for those of you who are interested to go from being just readers to being contributors at ScooterFile. We’re looking for writers and reporters who want to help us cover the world of scooter news. Maybe you’ve always wanted to write about scooters but didn’t have time to create and maintain a venue. Write here. Maybe you’re torn between writing personal riding stories and also the occasional news story on your own blog. Bring your news here and let your personal blog focus on your own scooting adventures.
We’re looking for a mix of frequent and infrequent contributors. We’d love to have a handful of people who are regularly contributing stories, and we’re also interested in less frequent or even one-off submissions. There’s something for anybody who’d like to get involved. Post news every day, or one review a year. We’re on the lookout for quality content. Period.
If you’re interested, drop us a note on our Contact page.
Here’s what we’re looking for:
- Editorial: Objective, thoughtful opinion pieces on the industry
- Event coverage: Cover a national or local scooter event and share the experience with the world
- Reviews: Of both scooters and scooter accessories. Owned your bike for a couple years? Write up a long-term review. Or, we might need to send you to an OEM press preview event.
- Cultural interest pieces: Help us capture and share the world of riding
- Social Media Contributor: We’d love to bring on someone who can give our Facebook and Twitter connections the attention they deserve.
What’s in it for me?
Get in touch with us and we’ll go over all of that. In short, ScooterFile is currently a 100% volunteer effort. Nobody is getting paid, including me. As the site garners sponsorship, that will likely change, but this is nobody’s day job. What we can offer is access to events and manufacturers that isn’t readily available to most folks on the street. That, and we can offer you a chance to share your scooter thoughts with a worldwide audience. We have readers all across America, Europe and Asia. It’s an opportunity to become a thought leader in the scooter community and an ambassador for scooter riders in the powersports press.
If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you.
