Nycbloggers.com is a noncommercial site that is dedicated to bringing
together bloggers in, of, and from New York City. Mike, Liz & Matt have put
this together as a service to the blogging community. Any money that comes
from the site (from merchandise sales, donations, or whatever) are used to
defray the costs of keeping this site going (server costs, etc.)
To be included in nycbloggers, your site must be a non-commercial blog, and
you must be a New Yorker. We use our own judgment on deciding which sites
meet these criteria.
"Non-commercial" does NOT mean that a commerical entity's blog (like a band)
or that a blog that is part of a commercial site (like a magazine) is
automatically disqualified. But if the blog itself is trying to sell you
something, then it's out.
"Blog" is a weblog, online journal, or site that's regularly updated. To
paraphrase Justice Potter Stewart, we may not be able to define blogness,
but we know it when we see it.
If you have to ask whether you qualify as a New Yorker, you're probably not.
Obviously, if you live or work in the five boroughs, you qualify. If you're
an ex-pat (you're from New York but live elsewhere now), you qualify.
We check each site to see if you qualify as a nycblogger — if we're unsure,
you may get a friendly email from one of us asking for clarification.
In the end, it's our call. Inclusion in nycbloggers.com is solely at the
whim and discretion of the site's founders. You can be rejected or removed
at any time for any reason. Such is the massive power we wield.
In general, each person's blog is listed at one stop. (You choose one train
line, but the database will take care of listing you on every line that goes
through that stop, so there's no need to submit your blog multiple times.)
There are two exceptions:
- A "group blog," that is, one at which multiple people may post directly
to the blog. If more than one of these direct posters are New Yorkers, the
blog can be listed at multiple stops.
- An individual who runs more than one blog can have more than one listing.
Each of these blogs should have its own URL and substantially different content.
For clarity's sake, we ask that you list these blogs at the same stop.
We ask for your email when you sign up, and also on our
mailing list sign-up page. You may opt out of
our mailing list at any time. (Send us an email
and we'll remove you.) If you sign up to be listed on nycbloggers.com, but elect
not to be included on our mailing list, you will receive one email from us
that notifies you that you've been listed, and then you'll never hear from
We collect emails for administrative purposes only. We will never never
never sell your email, or give it out to anyone, or post it anywhere. The
mailing list will be used to inform our members of site improvements and
news. We will not use it to market anything to you. We hate spam.
