KINDA BIG ANNOUNCEMENT #1: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN BLOG
The IMA is searching for its next blogger and we want you! Interested in sharing your thoughts about the IMA from an “outsider’s” perspective? Not afraid to muse publicly about the museum’s programs and exhibitions? Able to attend IMA events and willing to submit 300-600 words once a month? Then you could be the blogger for the job.
Here’s how it works:*
Step 1: Email your responses to the question below to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include “Hey IMA – I Wanna Blog” in the subject line.
Tell us a little about yourself:
Tell us a story. We want to know how good your yarn-spinning skills are, so give your best anecdote involving an experience you’ve had at the museum.
Why should you be an IMA blogger?
Step 2: We’ll select the top finalists and post their responses to the IMA blog during the month of January.
Step 3: In February, we’ll take it to America for a vote. Yep, that’s right! We’re gonna let the IMA blog’s readers decide who they want to read.
Step 4: The new IMA blogger is crowned. (and, yes, if you will wear it, we will give you an actual crown.) He or she will receive a dual membership to the IMA (so you can bring a friend whenever you want), two complimentary tickets to select public programs during 2010, and a monthly opportunity to blog.
*Rules and restrictions may apply. We just haven’t written them yet nor sent them to our lawyers.
