Pitch your blog idea

Note: We're taking pitches but we're in the process of switching ChicagoNow to a new blog platform so we're not launching new blogs right now.

You have a great blog or blog idea, we have a great blog network. You want to hook up?

We're open to any pitch but right now we're specifically interested in the following topics:

- Any of Chicago's neighborhoods
- Any blog where you have a very strong opinion on local issues

We are not interested in personal diary blogs.

In your pitch, be as specific as you can. Tell us about your topic, potential post ideas, and about yourself. If you've got an existing blog, include a URL.

You can live outside Chicago but only if your blog is Chicago-centric. For example, we have a passionate Bears blogger who lives out of state but we wouldn't allow that for a TV blogger.

We respond to every proposal but may not get back to your right away. Thanks for your interest and we look forward to reading your proposal.
