Seeking blog writers to create small articles for the VCOA website (http://www.vespaclubofamerica.com/blog). You can write about just about anything, maintenance, rally reviews, advice for new scooterists etc. If you've used articles/wiki's/posts from MV that you'd recommend we use for the blog, please share those as well. I'd like to start building a library of blog posts that we can publish bi-weekly, monthly etc. (depending on amount of content).

If you're interested, please email me directly at info@vespaclubofamerica.com or treasurer@vespaclubofamerica.com (EDITED 04/24/17, previous email was changed to a new server)

Need Content Curators!
Hey all -

So, we're finally ready to start seeking some writers. Anyone out here have previously written content (not previously published in Scoot! or American Scooterist) that they'd like to share with the club to be published? Or anyone want to contribute new articles they've been wishing to write?

I've been blogging for over 12 years but am brand new to the Vespa world - the 200GT is going to be my first and I should have it in a few weeks. If you are interested in the brand-new scooterist perspective, I'd love to contribute.

Are you still looking for contributors? I'd love to write for the blog. I wasn't able to reach you via e-mail, so I sent a private message.

Hey, looks like a lot of people have had email problems. So I sent there, and will send here.

I know I am not a "writer" by any stretch of the imagination, but I've done a few cute modern vespa write up stories with lots of pics, and have some fun videos from rallies. From 2012 to current, I know its not good, but if your desperate for content, your welcome to this stuff. Just let me know they are going up so I can check them out and respond to any comments or questions.

I will also link several Video's I have done from past scooter events, your more than welcome to repost those as well.

And as far as VLOGS, a local rider and I are trying that out, will attach a link to our first one, we are going to try to do more.

If there is anything you like, but want more detail IE set up for video, or more details about a trip, I am more than willing to do that as well.

Prepare for LINKFEST!!!!

Small weekend ride report, great pictures.

Thank you!
Thank you all! Sorry for my late response, I've been super busy lately and have been terrible about logging into MV.

Hope to see you all in Richmond!
