|2011-01-23 Citizen journalists wanted |
Tucson still has excellent professional journalists, like Josh Brodesky and Jim Nintzel. In ten years, will we? Corporate ownership of the media and tight budgets threaten our 'fourth estate'. Having professional quality citizen journalists sounds like a good plan for the future - not to mention a fascinating hobby that supports democracy and your local community!
How can independent citizen journalists be supported?
We don't have all the answers, but traditionally advertising has been the main revenue stream that pays journalists. Donations from readers may be another.
bTucson.com gives you direct access to both, as well as editorial support.

|2012-09-01 Editor's blog |
Hello out there - I'm the part-time editor of bTucson.com.

|2011-05-11 Reporters: get funded thru Spot.us |
bTucson.com has just been approved as a publisher for http://Spot.us, a pioneer of "community powered reporting".
Actually it doesn't matter that we've been approved. All stories community funded at Spot.us are licensed thru Creative Commons and could be published at bTucson.com anyway. The approval lets us fund them at a higher level if we want to.
Ah - but the point for writers is, that you can pitch your story at Spot.us and get funded for doing the investigative journalism and quality writing you've always wanted to do. They'll help you polish your pitch, and peer reviewers will improve the quality of your work. And if it relates to Tucson, we'll publish it (possibly along with other media outlets).
If you'd like help with story ideas, feel free to contact me add comment

Our program is copied by other swim school in Tucson, but we have always been and will continue to be the original innovator!!!
|2007-09-18 Why write for bTucson.com? |
Sharing your insights and experiences is helpful, and writing is the best way to share on the web. Getting your ideas and memories down in print is also satisfying. And, in these days of tight budgets and corporate-owned media, your writing, your investigative citizen journalism is part of a movement that may one day help preserve our democracy. Really.
Now, back to simple sharing of your direct experiences - do you know a fair mechanic, a competent and considerate doctor, a great little hole in the wall cafe? Have you an idea for a fun, creative family activity? Would you like to know what is really going on with the Rio Nuevo project, and can you make a phone call to find out?
Sharing your experiences, insights, ideas and research can be incredibly useful.

|2011-03-03 bTucson traffic compares to visittucson.org and tucson.com |
bTucson.com traffic is a bit lower, but is comparable and sometimes above the site for the Tucson Convention Center and Visitor's Bureau. And your information can appear on the front page of bTucson.com!
(Alexa uses fairly small numbers for sites like these, so the up and down is more jitter than accurate - it often goes the opposite direction from google analytics. But the long term average should be valid enough.)
|2009-06-13 bTucson.com Looking Good! |
Very much liking the "Some Recent Features Section"! Great Idea! Keep up the good work!"
