Guest Posting

In order to improve the blog I decided to try Guest Posting. The purpose of having other bloggers publishing posts in 1001 Scribbles is to make it better, fresher and to offer the viewers new and different approaches in Photography and Travel.

The core of the blog will remain the same, otherwise it wouldn’t reflect myself. However it’s always beneficial to show and discuss other perspectives on the issues that matter to us.

Therefore I’m looking for bloggers who would like to contribute with posts to 1001 Scribbles. Some of  topics I’d like to be discussed here are:

  • Photographic Equipment
  • Travels from: Asia, America, Africa or any other places I don’t already mention in the blog
  • Traditional or local Food
  • Hotels/Hostels/Camping Sites
  • Traditional Outfits

So, if you’re willing to write, show pics or make lists on any of these topics please feel free to contact me via email: 1001Scribbles@gmail.com

Alternative subjects may be considered and that’s why you should contact me (also via email) if you’ve got any other idea that you believe would improve the blog without completely modify 1001 Scribbles’ main purpose.

  1. Cool idea, guest bloggers. I keep losing your blog and finding it again, maybe because you keep finding mine, as I have changed it several times. Now, it has matured and will remain under the current name.. Photographic equipment, Canon specifically, I could do. I just have to fit it in with every thing else going on. I’ve been thinking about doing it anyway.

    i;ve got loads on iceland from my recent trip as you saw on my blog, ice cold land. i could contribute every once in a blue moon :)

    • Hello, That would be a pretty cool idea =) Please email me (1001scribbles@gmail.com) telling me about what you want to post, number of posts you would be interested in posting (a couple of posts or a series) and any other details you might feel are important =) Thanks a lot

  3. Hi Ana! I have done several posts about Turkey if you would like to use them for the travel blogs:) Just click the tag for Turkey or Istanbul and feel free to re-post! Big kisses, Quinn

  4. Ana – Feel free to peruse my blog and re-post to yours any of my travel notes or food recipes that fit your needs. You may like Un Bonde Chamado Desejo, but that might be too close to home (Lisboa) and one angle that you’ve already written about.

  5. Hi, Ana. Guest posting is a great idea. I just read the one on photography tips by Kerry. I wouldn’t know his post if I have not read yours. If you are interested in any posts that I posted in all my blogs, like my travel to Cambodia, and my foodblog, please let me know.

  6. Hello Anna! Eventhough, I recently started reading your blog I enjoy it very much. I can see a similar approach to our blogging style such as appreciating world culture and discovering far lands and loving design. I live in Istanbul, Turkey. One day, I would like to send you a post something about Istanbul. Guest blogging is a great idea for networking as well. I would love to see your writing on my blog too if you like. Something realated about design in Porteguese would be great! Thanks and have a wonderful day!

  7. I am new to your 1001 scribbles but am really enjoying very much. The idea of Guest Blogging is very nice – provides fresh as well as varied posts. Will be emailing you shortly. All the best!

  8. What a wonderful idea! If you’re ever looking for descriptive short prose on experiences or places in India (from mostly states in the south, but also the north east and middle of the country), whether about villages, cities, hills, seaside, etc, my travel writings can provide! Most of my writings can be found at: ruthpinto.wordpress.com. Additionally, if you would like photographs to supplement the writings, I can provide those as well.
    Do let me know!

  9. If you like I can arrange some posts about trip to Australia, some other travels in Europe, and also from the time I’ve lived in South Africa, Egypt and Netherlands.

  10. hey ana,

    Would you like to have some pics from “kala ghoda festival 2012″, which is conducted annually in Mumbai, India ??

  11. wow!
    Should you are interested with italian dishes I can also contribute with them!
    You already know my food blog (Ma che bontà!) so… let me know!
    Bye!

  12. Ana, I have a quick question as you seem to have seen quite a bit of Europe, If you had, a medium sized budget but wanted to do things as cheaply as possible while still experiencing another culture (with friendly people) where would you go in Europe?

    • Portugal!!! :D

      Well, it all depends on what you want from your trip: big city only, multiple city, quieter place, city and surroundings…
      About the friendly people… Portuguese people are friendly :P (but so are Slovenian, German, Austrian, Dutch, …) Even Italian people in their “unique” way. (of course, this is my personal opinion)
      If you want to do it cheaply Portugal, Spain, Slovenia or even Austria would be a good idea as experience other cultures would be a reality. Hope I was helpful. Anything else just ask away ;)

  13. Hey there! I’m a big fan of southeast Asia – been a few times teaching English, photographing and exploring. Let me know if you think it’d be a good fit for your blog! Morgan – topknotchgear@gmail.com

    Ps. LOVE your idea of guest blogging… we’ll have to do something like this on our blog, too. :)

  14. Funny…I was looking at your blog and saw the comments here. I am from Minnesota too! I would be happy to put any of my travel posts on your blog if you think that would be a good fit. I have already over 340 post! So let me know if there are any you like and I’d be happy to post one on your site.
    Nicole

  15. love this idea! how about someone from Minnesota? Doesn’t compare to the places you have been… but maybe it could work. :)
