Your Blog On Leeds Inspired
We welcome, with open arms, blogs about art and culture events that we can feature on the Leeds Inspired website. We like to share writing that offers a new perspective, some context, a preview or reflection about your events and projects in Leeds. Have a look at the blog for examples of posts that we've published recently.
Our guidelines for copy are 400 - 800 of your words, already proof read for spelling, grammar, accuracy of links and bucket loads of charm. You'll probably want to link to relevant websites so make sure you provide us with the URL's. Please supply the copy as an attachment rather than in the body of the email.
We'll need at least three big images, although more will make us happier, images make your blog look more gorgeous and inviting to our readers. You'll need to supply each image with a credit. If the images need to be placed in any particular order then let us know. Make sure you have permission to use the images and supply as attachments rather than in the body of the email.
If you've got Youtube or Vimeo content that you'd like including just tell us what the link is and we'll embed it in your blog.
Blogs that make us happy
- A sneaky peek behind the scenes
- A friendly, informal style
- Some insider information that nobody else knows (obviously nothing litigious though)
- Lovely strong photographic images that you have permission to use
Blogs that make us sad
- A press release
- Jargon or acronyms
- A piece that has already appeared in an identical format elsewhere
- Flyers and logos masquerading as photos
So, if you'd like us to feature your blog on Leeds Inspired drop us an email first telling us about your idea: email@example.com.
Then supply us with the copy in word format by email and attach images separately. We'll add the blog to the website, let you know of any edits we've made, and then tell everyone about it - happy days!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
