I am super excited to see you’re interested in exploring Lancaster County with us. It always amuses me when people say there’s nothing to do. Oh there’s plenty to do, if you’re willing to broaden your perspective. That’s what the Grand Lancaster Explorers is all about.
When I first started amishroadshow.com in 2011 it was just me, a cheap video camera, and a desire to share the area. It has been amazing to see my own interests grow and even develop into a photography career. However, no matter how hard I try i’m still just one person with one perspective. As my vision for GrandLancaster.com began to take form I made collaborating with more creative people and sharing their perspectives a top priority.
I’m looking for a few recruits interested in sharing their stories about Lancaster County and the surrounding area. Over the last few years I've learned not only that collaboration is vital to an individual artist's success, but it also opens doors to so many exciting possibilities you never would have imagined. I believe working together will not only get more attention to our individual stories, but it will broaden the perspective of our collective "big picture" making it more useful for a broader audience.
we are Currently seeking
- Social Explorers - Passionate explorers willing to share your photos, videos, paintings, poetry, etc., to our Facebook Page as well the #GrandLancaster tag on other Social Media Platforms. Content should be in some way Lancaster County focused, but we are open minded and anxious to see what you send us. We may be starting a Facebook Group or two, but are waiting to see if there is any interest. We want to see your work, hear your voice, and share it with the rest of our friends. There is no signup required for social explorers, just head on over to our profiles and share your perspective:
- Map Makers - A few photographers and wanderers interested in contributing photos to our Grand Lancaster Explorers Map. We're still working on the most effective upload procedure and it will require some basic technical abilities. So for now we're only looking for a few people to get the ball rolling. Maps has always been a favorite feature among my site visitors, and now you can show off your images to help others explore the area. To give credit where credit is due you will be allowed to place your own link under the photo. A great opportunity to grow your fan base on your Instagram, Facebook Page, Website, Grand Lancaster Author Page, or other professional platform *(link approval required)
- Bloggers/Vloggers - Interested in contributing short blog posts weekly or monthly? The most successful blogs online post content daily, and we've learned the challenges of going it alone. That's why we're looking to collaborate with explorers like you. We're opening up the blog as a platform to allow local voices to be heard.Don't think your contribution will go unnoticed. You will get your own Grand Lancaster Author Profile which will be linked to your social media profiles and websites. When users visit your author profile it will display a short bio and a beautiful layout of the posts you have authored. Your profile will also be displayed with the other authors on our Contributing Explorers Page, and of course you will be given prominent recognition when sharing your posts to social media. I know as well as anyone that there are a lot of websites out there trying to use your images to promote their agenda for free. That's why I am looking for passionate people with a burning desire to share their stories. I want to build a place where you can climb the platform and announce your stories to the world! We'll make sure the spotlight is where it belongs too!
