Contributor Guidelines

East Lothian Voices is all about getting to know individuals with a connection to our beautiful county. Your posts don’t need to be solely about East Lothian.

Before your week, tell your followers you are going to host East Lothian Voices and encourage them follow @EL_Voices.

You will be given access to the @EL_Voices twitter account on the Sunday before your week. You can tweet as early on Monday as you like until as late on Saturday as you wish.

You could start by thanking the previous incumbent and introducing yourself and telling followers about your connection to East Lothian.

Things you might think are mundane are often interesting to others e.g.

  • your typical day
  • your commute
  • your hobbies/interests
  • what you’re having for tea!

Try to Tweet and Retweet as you normally would from your own account. In other words – don’t try to replicate Lothian Loop or any previous Voice.

Consider using quote retweet to add context to a retweet e.g. why this issue is important to you or to explain technical details for the general public.

It’s a good idea to interact with followers: ask questions, like, reply and retweet.

At the end of your week, say goodbye with a final tweet and remind people of your usual twitter handle in case they want to follow you. You might wish to mention the upcoming host.

IMPORTANT

Your week on East Lothian Voices should be fun and not a chore, however, only apply if you can commit to posting frequently throughout your week.

If you are no longer available on your week, please give as much notice as possible.

You need to be following @lothianloop in order to exchange information.

Contributors must abide by the usual Twitter rules.

It is advisable to check the social media policy of your employer or any organisations with which you are involved.

If you would like to take over the reins, please email admin@lothianloop.com with your preferred slot asap (you might wish to pick a week that is important to you e.g. National Vegetarian Week, Coeliac Awareness Week etc).
