News Editors Wanted

Recommended Posts

Bedlington.co.uk isn't just for reading. It's for all sections of the community, local organisations, and local traders who employ local people to contribute to.

Individuals: Become a news editor and contribute directly to our Town's news pages. You can write about whatever you want providing it somehow relates to Bedlington people, is honest, decent, reasonably balanced, and legal. In order to improve presentation and audience your work may be tidied up before final publication. On rare occasions it may merged with other people's writings on the same subject - but full credit will always be given, and no attempt will be made to change the gist of what you are saying.

Local not-for-profit Organisations: Follow the example of our town football club and ensure that your message gets out to the only people that matter - Bedlington people! Publicise your events, you news flow, whatever!

Commercial Organisations: If you provide local employment (even if it's just self-employment) then you are just as entitled to blow your own trumpet as anyone else. We are a not-for-profit organisation ourselves and it really doesn't matter to us that someone is getting commercial benefit for free. All we ask is fair dos and that you provide reasonable informational content and not bald links to commercial material hosted elsewhere. The aim is to have your firm as an integral part of our community and not an organisation leeching from it. "How to" articles are particularly welcome. With large corporations dominating the web it's hard to get the concept of free targeted advertising over to local firms. Somehow it sounds too good to be true, or can't be worth the effort. All we can say is that if you don't your competitors will - local people will note who cares about making the effort and who doesn't. The only reason not to is if you are scared of your customers, don't care about them, or otherwise provide a substandard service.

In all cases to get started just PM me or another admin and ask for an editorial account. You need to choose a pen name which may or may not be the same as you use in the forums.
