Hendricks County Tourism Seeks Local Bloggers
By Josh Duke
Visit Hendricks County
Visit Hendricks County is seeking area residents who are interested in experiencing and writing about county attractions, festivals and other fun activities.
Visit Hendricks County’s blog, All Access Hendricks County, has provided tourism-related insider information about the county since the site launched Nov. 1, 2011, at http://www.TourHendricksCounty.com/Blog. After remarkable success the past two years including growing readership with 247,000 page views and 60,000 unique visits in 2013 alone, Visit Hendricks County has decided to seek additional paid contributors, known as Digital Destination Experts.
“We added paid contributors in June of 2012 and since then have been able to consistently produce content five days a week,” said Josh Duke, Visit Hendricks County’s Communications Manager. “We have been pleased with our bloggers but believe we are ready to bring on more local writers to provide fresh ideas and perspectives.”
Applications can be found at www.TourHendricksCounty.com/Blog by clicking on “Blogger Application” under the “About our Bloggers” menu tab or at www.TourHendricksCounty.com in the Pressroom. Deadline for applications is Feb. 21. Visit Hendricks County hopes to have those additional bloggers in place sometime in March. Previous blogging or writing experience is preferred but not required.
