La Vida Idealist Is Looking for New Writers

As I’ve written about before on this blog, I’m also a blogger with La Vida Idealist, which is a Latin American based blog on volunteer opportunities from Idealist.org. The topic that I focus my posts on are life after volunteering and trying to find new employment opportunities/move on after long term volunteering, etc.

Well, at some point I’m going to have to pass the reigns off to someone else, and that time is nearly upon us. Today our editor, Celeste Hamilton, sent out an email saying that the blog has reached over 10,000 page views, and they are looking to expand its content. There are a handful of writers involved in it currently, representing different countries in Latin America, as well as different view points. We are now looking to expand to more countries and writers.

You can find information on the Idealist Web site, and see how you can apply to be a writer for La Vida Idealist. The main requirements are that you can post once a week or so and be involved in volunteering or non-profit work in Latin America in some way. Check out the blog for ideas on what kinds of stories are covered and the style that is preferred. Good luck.
