CALLING ALL HUBBERS!!
Because of my hubpage profiles I have an interview for a San Antonio magazine. I saw the add and simply emailed them both my hubpage profiles, and they replied "you are exactly what we are looking for". I've written very personal stuff on my profiles but that's what hey asked for. There add read:
Our magazine is looking for writers, people with inspirational/interesting stories, local people or business owners who would like to produce articles for brand new San Antonio magazine. If you are an aspiring writer and looking to get your ideas out, this could be your opportunity. Please respond back to this ad with your background, story ideas, education, and why you feel people would want to read your writing/stories.
I am new in this town, and I am flowing with ideas... please give me feedback. I am new to this town, I am enjoying visiting new bars and clubs... taking pictures of them and writing about my experience. I can write inspiring poetry. I can have a column. What do you think? I want to have ideas after ideas at the interview.
Fluff this is great news-firstly well done to you, secondly, seize the day look on it has a great opportunity to spread your good work- make sure they pay you !!
are you serious? wow, congratulations fluffy that's wonderful. Im so happy for you. i know you'll do a great job for them, as your a outstanding writer.
At least things are moving forward, instead of backwards.
I'm glad to hear you're doing better and the move was a great thing too.
Congrats, Fluffy - sounds like you have made a great move - good luck with the magazine. You seem to have the newcomer's views on San Antonio's night life covered.
What about a series on what the city has to offer from a newcomer's POV? SA is rich in history, culture, architecture, cultural/ethnic roots - check out the Arts scene, theater, music.
Are there any, young up-and-coming clothing, decor, or home designers there who are starting to make a bit of a name for themselves? Getting the inside track with some of them as a booster now could be helpful later for you and for them in career terms.
What is the demographic of this magazine? Is it aimed at the young trendy crowd? Knowing their target audience could be very helpful to you in developing ideas for articles.
Anyway, congrats, and hope this helps out a bit. Have fun!
Good luck and congrats.
You've got some good ideas already but here are a few more:
Things locals can do for free
Stories about those people helping others in the community
A travel section (haha - I WOULD say that!)
A section on cafes in town - but add something about the owner
A "great find" piece every month - if you're interested in antiques and the town/city (sorry I'm not from the US) has several try to identify a good find and photograph and write about its history etc.
Hope you get it!
1) Go to the courthouse Monday morning and ask the sheriff's deputy if you can interview the prisoners and get their opinions on jailhouse food.
2) San Antonio is rich in history. Prowl around city hall and find out which warehouse the city stores its artifacts. Then get in the warehouse and look around.
3) Go to your local pet store and find out who has strange pets like spiders or ants.
Post local AA/NA events and local meeting locations. Write articles about success stories.
It's so nice to read of someones success. Maybe somewhere along the line, in one of your articles, you can let everyone know about all your friends, and all the encouragement you have found on hub pages. Well done, i am just going over to read some of your hubs.
Yes, HubPage writers really do get noticed. Congratulations and keep us informed on what happens. Fantastic!
I wrote a hub that I would love some feedback on that I am going to present at my interview.

Is even possible for new hubbers to pass a hubpage bootcamp?I do not know who read hubs before they are published, featured or non. As a new hubber I found it exhausting to just get mark-unfeatured without any feedback. My first hub I was writing 4 days just to find out is un-featured. I understand...

Hi all. I tried to publish a hubpage entitled French Words in Cooking and the message "Loading" blinked for a long time. The hubpage published without any content (although I had included a photo and text). I then flagged it to be deleted. I tried again to...
