You may have noticed that over the past few months I’ve been plugging my Home Town Tourism series, and you even may have spotted my first ever Home Town Tourism post from Sippin Gypsy! I’m sure you’ve been asking yourself, however, what on earth is Home Town Tourism, and why am I so keen to get as many people on board to promote it as possible!?
I thought I maybe owed you all an explanation and since I have such a big focus on travel related posts this month I decided now was the time!
What is Home Town Tourism?
Home Town Tourism is the term I have created (I’m sure others have used it before me) for promoting the place you live. I have created this ‘series’ (it will hopefully be an ongoing series!) as a way of promoting the places that people don’t always think about visiting and to encourage people to realise how great their ‘home town’ is as we so often don’t realise what’s on our doorstep! I have encouraged people – bloggers, influencers and non-blogger/influencers alike – to get involved in telling me what their city/town/village/area has to offer. It’s not just limited to the UK – I’ve had people from all over the world wanting to share their story!
How can I get involved?
It’s really simple to get involved! You just head on over to my Google Form and let me know a little bit about you and where you’re from and I’ll be in touch! This is simply so I can make sure that I don’t have two people covering the same tiny village, but even if two people wanted to cover the same place I’m sure it’s possible to find a way that they can both cover a different angle! If you’ve filled it in already then you’ll hear from me soon!
If you think you live somewhere great but you don’t want to write a post all on your own, that is not a problem! I have some interview questions set up that I can send you and you just have to fill in the blanks, then I will take care of writing the post for you!
It really is that simple, so get yourself involved and share the wonder of a place you love!
