Jetson Green - Blogging the Green Building Revolution

Update – 12/18/08 – the response has been huge!  I’m sorting through everything and will be in touch shortly.  All contributor positions, for the foreseeable short term, appear to be filled.  Thank you!

In a little over a year’s time, this site has grown like indigenous landscaping rooted in fresh, fertile soil.  We’re seeing three times more readers and feed subscribers.  Emails have gone through the roof!  To be honest, the team right now just can’t write about all the great content worth writing about.  So we’re looking for contributors.  We’re not looking for junk stories and we’re certainly not interested in adding to the blogosphere echo chamber — this is a magazine and we like to spend time gathering images and information to appropriately tell a unique story.  Doing so takes some time and collaboration, but the rewards are many and diverse.  These are some of the areas we could use contributors:

  • Corporate real estate
  • Commercial interiors
  • Biomimicry and innovation
  • Materials and technology
  • Building technology
  • DIY write ups or video
  • Industry research and reports

Of course, it goes without saying that we’re looking for green articles in these areas.  If you’re interested in contributing, check out our Contributor Agreement [pdf] and Anatomy of a Jetson Green Article Guidelines [pdf].  I’ve tried to be transparent and flexible with everything.  Shoot me an email at [email protected]  Let’s talk about what you’re interested in writing about and how often you want to write.  If you only want to submit an article here and there, that’s okay, too. 

The main idea is this: we want to provide high quality information for demanding readers.  We want to talk about new trends and ideas and provide insight.  Let’s strike up a conversation if you’re a smart contributor …
