Are You Ready to Jump In?

Over the last 10 months the Re-Discover Washington blog has become an essential part of my day. I enjoy meeting many new and wonderful people, I love the interaction with the numerous Facebook fans, and I keep re-discovering interesting places and faces around town. Many of you call and e-mail me with suggestions and topics they would like to see on the blog, and my to-do list keeps on growing and growing. My mission has not changed, though: the idea behind Re-Discover Washington is to feature small, family owned businesses in Washington, and people who contribute with their skills and personalities to the community. However, I am just a girl with a camera and a limited amount of time, and as much as I want to do it all, I simply can’t. Don’t worry, I am not quitting. I am simply asking for your help!

August is the month when everyone in Bulgaria goes on vacation. And since I was born and raised there, I like to adhere to the unspoken rules. That’s where your role comes into play! How would you like to contribute a blog post as a guest blogger? It can be on a topic of your choice, or you can pick one of the following suggestions:

The new “Fern and Sycamore” store. Interview the owners, share photos of the interior, write about the history of the building…it’s up to you!

“Three Ladies on the Corner” – who are the three ladies behind it?

Schroeder’s: how long have they been in business, what makes them stay downtown?

Washington Academy of Music: I bet many of you don’t even know it’s on Elm Street…

Cowan’s Mercantile – such a fascinating place!

The Hallmark Store on Elm Street.

Flavor’s: a new ice cream shop I still haven’t been to, but I have heard so many wonderful things about them. Maybe YOU can tell us more!

Are you interested in being a guest blogger? Here is what you need to do:

1. Write a blog post on one of the suggested businesses above, or on a topic of your choice (History Connection, Health & Wellness, Meet the Artist, etc.)

2. E-mail your blog post to slavabowman@yahoo.com along with some photos to go with it (no need to get professional, KISS (Keep It Short & Simple) is what I do.

3. The blog posts that get featured on Re-Discover Washington will be entered in a draw for one of a kind Re-Discover Washington tote bag (only the winner and I will have one)!

Looking forward to seeing what you will come up with! You have until the end of August to enter the blogging contest!

In the mean time, I will be doing less blogging and more vacationing… 🙂
