GPAD is a brand and platform that grows through it’s relationships with others.
We will always blog, photograph and document the people and passions that inspire us, but, we’re actively seeking others who would like to take part in this unique platform.
We want to add your unique voices and viewpoints to help the brand grow into something more than just the people local to us who we can physically meet with and speak to. As we’re physically located in the South East of the UK, it can be tricky getting others onboard from around the globe.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Our hopes are to build a community of active and passionate people for content in this section of the website, each of whom have something they would like to talk about, a passion and history they would like to share as well as some images/videos to supplement their story.
This will in turn help GPAD become a unique platform of opinions and interests within the passions featured.
Here’s some random examples to give you a feel of what we’d like to hear about:
Perhaps you love trying out unique restaurants and would like to write a piece about your favorite cuisine (X EAT).
Or maybe you’ve just started working at a Travel Agents and would like a place to write about some incredible destinations you’ve since discovered (X TRAVEL).
You have an overwhelming desire to go on adventures and would like to submit a blog/story about somewhere magical you’ve found (X ADVENTURE).
You’re the kind of people we’d love to hear from!
CAN I WRITE ABOUT ANYTHING I LIKE?
Well… Yes and No. Ideally, your passion (or hobby/vocation/interest) can ‘fit’ into one of the areas in the People and Passions Page. These are the areas that we’re really looking to build and expand upon.
As you can imagine, people’s passions, hobbies etc are limitless, so we try to fit your passion into a single word. This makes ‘categorizing’ your passion easier to handle and aid in the construction and navigation of this website in it’s entirety.
Your idea for a post must be unique to you and not copied from another source and claimed as your own.
This site tends to focus on the positives of people and what they enjoy doing, so a post written in a negative light on a topic or subject would most likely be declined. It would depend on the idea and the submission.
WHAT DO I GET IN RETURN?
We’d love to promise you riches and glory, but realistically we can’t. We’d also love to promise you thousands of views and ‘click-backs’ to your own online profiles etc (but we would, again, be guessing at the numbers).
We can however, promise you the following:
Your content/post, if accepted, will be made available in an area to people who specifically have a shared interest in your topic. These are engaged people from the ‘get-go’ who will most likely enjoy your content and find it relevant to them.
You will be part of a young brand, growing, learning and evolving to the needs of it’s users and the passions featured.
Your blog post/story submission, if accepted, would be featured, promoted and shared across many of GPAD’s social accounts, hopefully aiding in your promotion and growth and connecting you with like minded people who share your interests.
We spend at least one day a week, promoting you and your work featured on the site by creating visual posts for our social media.
YOU’RE PASSION IS OUR PASSION! GET ONBOARD AND WE’LL TREAT YOU RIGHT!
You’ll have your content featured in a unique collaborative platform. There simply aren’t many websites out there like this one. Let’s change that together!
Lastly, but most importantly, you’ll be able to find new people who perhaps share the same interests as you. Allowing you to reach out and discuss new topics and ideas with people/brands as passionate as you are.
DO I NEED TO BE AN EXPERT OR PROFESSIONAL WRITER?
No! The People & Passions area is mostly made up of enthusiasts and people with interests/hobbies they’d like to share. People who don’t just DREAM but DO!
You don’t need to be an ‘expert’ of your field to have your idea/post/blog featured. You don’t need to have previous written examples that have been published online. Just an obvious passion in what you’re writing about. Ideally, you’ll have a place you’d like to link back to. Whether it be a Facebook Page, Instagram Account or Website.
