When writing about strictly-Vancouver content I often have to chose between publishing on my own site or on Metroblogging. I have been involved with Metroblogging Vancouver for over a year and am actually one of the City Captains – meaning I get to sit in on all the global blogging domination chats every month, which is kinda fun. If you’re missing some content, think I haven’t updated or posted about a certain topic it may be useful to get your Rebecca fix over at Metblogs. For instance, I’ve had a few people ask me about Google Transit and why I haven’t written anything about it – rest-assured I have, it’s just over there.
My fave/top posts on Metblogs include:
Why share my content with another site? I don’t know, I usually find myself asking that same question and wondering why I’m contributing, free of charge, to a site that makes money that I don’t see. I think I just like the idea of contributing, period. Getting different perspectives, different audiences etc. Am I a sucker then? Maybe, but it’s still pretty fun to be a part of such a neat group of authors, locally and from around the world. BTW – we’re almost always looking for more authors so if you’re interested just drop me a line.
