Visit Burslem is open for anybody to contribute to in words and pictures. Here is a short guide, if you have any more questions please ask them in the comments section.
What can I write about?
Anything you like. This is a website about all that Burslem has to offer so a good starting point is to write about what you’re doing at the moment.
How much can I write?
You can write as much as you like, but a good article length for the web is around 250 words. Shorter updates can also be added to the Twitter feed.
But I hate writing
Don’t worry about how good your writing is. We have a small band of volunteers who can edit articles (more welcome). It’s more important for something to be interesting than well-written. If you prefer, we are also happy to accept contributions in the form of photos, videos or illustrations – please add these to a public website (like Flickr or Youtube) and let us know the link. We’re also happy to repost articles you have created for other places if you give us permission.
How do I submit my contribution?
The easiest way is to paste it into a comment on this page. It won’t appear straight away, but the site administrators will see it. Please include your email address so we can contact you.
Where else can I find out about what’s happening or have a good argument?
This site is aimed at encouraging visitors, trade and general vibrancy around the town. There are several more community discussion websites:
- My Burslem, a discussion site and forum linked in with My Tunstall
- The My Burslem Facebook group
- On Twitter
