Be a Blogger Programme

You can earn points by writing articles, essays, stories, reports, etc. which will be published at the Think English website.

For such contribution to the website you will earn from 5 to 25 points.

You may write a text
a) on the culture of English-speaking countries, concerning e.g. holidays, customs, symbols, patron saints, cities, celebrities, events, etc.
b) on your hobbies and interests, e.g. music, films, books, sports, school, computers, lifestyles, ecology, etc.
c) on any subject you want (you may write e.g. for and against essay, review, short-story, interview, etc.)

While writing, remember simple rules:
a) write your article yourself! Don’t be afraid of making mistakes – to err is human!
b) if you quote, always use quotation marks and cite the source (the author’s name and e.g. title of the book or link to the article)

SurPrizes:

Beatriz,
I’m so glad you like the site! 🙂
It would be great to have you aboard! You’re always welcome here and I’m sure your help will be invaluable. If you have any ideas for articles, quizzes, reports, stories, insights, games, essays, etc., please, feel free to contact me at think.english[at]op.pl (or here) and I’ll be happy to publish your work at Think English. I am open to any input you want to contribute, so let me know 🙂

BTW, your site looks great too. Unfortunately, I’m not an expert in Spanish, though I like the sound of the language a lot – some years ago I even tried to learn the basics on the Internet, but now I don’t remember much. I’m sure one day I’ll have another go 😉

Take care,
Ryszard
