fell through unexpectedly, my application for a position with Singletracks.com is an entirely different story!
I have had a long history of involvement on Singletracks. I first joined as an ordinary member back in 2008, and quickly became addicted to this fascinating repository of mountain bike trail information. When I lived in Colorado, I was researching and riding trails at a frenzied rate! Quite often I would find and ride trails that weren't already listed in the database, so I would add and review them.
This started a cycle of contribution to Singletracks that has lasted all the way up to the present day, placing me (Goo) as the number one (member) content contributor to the website with 5,830 points (as of 1/26/11).
After the start of Greg Rides Trails, I wrote a number of different guest posts for Singletracks to help get the word out about my own blog... and to be an even bigger part of such a cool website.
My work on Greg Rides Trails and my involvement with Singletracks continued to snowball until finally Jeff (the owner of Singletracks) announced that he was accepting applications for a part-time blogger position. In my mind, that was absolutely fantastic, and I began working on my application as soon as I received the information!
Obviously, I was selected to be one of the 4 new "blog team" members, and I'm excited to be a part of this! If you want to read more about my thoughts on this opportunity and how this gig will affect my publishing on Greg Rides Trails, be sure to check out the blog post I published on the topic.
If you are interested in hiring me to blog, write copy, proofread, or edit, please email me.
