The Kapali Carsi

Looking for a few good bloggers

First of all, I should apologize for the cheesy movie reference, to which I am used to from my columns:)….

I am looking for a few food bloggers, both for this blog and also for Hurriyet Daily News, where I write econ. columns. Here are the details:

For my blog, I have decided to accept select guest posts- I had actually tested this out for a few months with one person, and I got really good feedback, so I am going ahead full speed. All you’d have to do would be to email me the post, along with graphs and what not, and I’ll take care of the rest. My requirements are that submissions are of decent quality and that they are at least remotely related to Turkey- after all, it is a blog on the Turkish economy. Of course, you wouldn’t want to¬† work on something for two hours, only to find that I can’t/won’t post it, so you are more than welcome to share the topic with me beforehand. If you are interested, and are not a fanatic cincon or f3n3v fan (I think I lost a few candidates already with these two words) who would mind posting in a blog titled KapaliCARSI, for a fanatic BesiktASK fan with an eagle tattoo on his back, I’d be honored to have you:)… Oh, BTW, I can’t offer remuneration, as RGE Economonitor doesn’t for guest bloggers…

And if my standards are too tight, HDN’s aren’t: They are looking for bloggers in all areas, from econ. to sports, from cooking to yoga and what not. And they don’t have to write about Turkey. And you don’t have to deal with a fanatic BesiktASK fan with an eagle tattoo on his back, but with the rather relaxed web editor at Daily News, Ali Abaday. If you are interested, please contact him at [email protected] And unfortunately the paper can’t offer remuneration for your contributions either, but they are planning to push the blogs and even feature well-written posts in the hardcopy newspaper, so the added publicity may be an incentive for some, I hope… And finally, these two offers are not mutually exclusive: You can publish an article in both; in fact, my blog posts will be appearing in HDN as well… And finally (really this time), don’t be shy if your English is not as good as James Joyce’s. Mine isn’t, either:), and besides, there are editors for both blogs…

Please feel free to share this post as you see fit…

All the best,

Emre the fanatic BesiktASK fan with the eagle tattoo on his back- shit this sounded like that Swedish book/movie:)…
