If you love the Kenosha Area – locally owned restaurants, unique attractions, specialty shops, and awesome events – the Kenosha Area Convention & Visitors Bureau wants to hear from you! The KACVB is seeking a few good writers to serve on its Community Blog Team. Bloggers will be asked to explore the Kenosha Area as “tourists in their own town” and to share their favorite ways to enjoy the Kenosha Area via the Visit Kenosha blog.
The KACVB is looking for individuals with interesting perspectives on our community or specific interests pertaining to travel and tourism topics. Here are some ideas: Kenosha Native, Transplant Fan, Nearby Neighbor, Young Professional, Family Focused, Student Living in Kenosha, Empty Nesters, Museum Maven, History Buff, Outdoor Enthusiast, Professional Event Attendee, or Deal Diva, etc.
Strong writing skills are a must; some photography skills are also preferred. Those who enjoy photography and creating short videos are especially encouraged to apply. The bloggers must be willing to write approximately one blog per month from June 2020 – May 2021. Any photos and copy shared for the VisitKenosha.com blog become the property of the KACVB. Bloggers, in turn, will get some sweet perks, behind the scenes access to businesses and events, and more. This is an unpaid, one-year commitment.
Those interested in applying need to fill out a short application, found here: http://bit.ly/2020vkblogapp. The KACVB will review applications and interview the top candidates before selecting 10 bloggers. Applications must be received by April 6, 2020. The new Community Blog Team will be announced publicly during National Travel & Tourism Week (May 3 – 9, 2020).
The KACVB launched its blog in May 2013 with posts written by staff and the occasional guest blogger. Community bloggers first joined the blog team in May 2015. This will be the sixth class of community bloggers.
