Among the many things Swamplot is thankful for: the amazing photographic talent of our readers. You can get a taste of that talent by perusing the Swamplot Flickr pool. (What’s that? Not cité-verité enough for you? Then snap some pics of your own, join the group, and show us the real Houston.)
The date is set — on Tuesday, December 1, Swamplot will throw open the floodgates presently holding back our full-volume daily coverage of the Houston real estate scene. Help us get the word out to everyone downstream by telling your friends.
Swamplot is getting ready to resume daily coverage of real estate happenings across the city — our relaunch date will be officially announced early next week. If you haven’t already done so, you can add yourself to our mailing list using the form below to make sure you’re one of the first to hear about it.
This city’s ongoing roll call of doomed structures needs a new herald. Yes, Swamplot is still seeking a special someone to prepare our Daily Demolition Report from city permit records for each weekday morning. How to tell if that someone might be you: you’re a text-processing whiz, pay attention to detail, have a working knowledge of Houston geography, and the thought of approaching bulldozers gets your engines revving.
This is a regular freelance position that doesn’t pay much (do you like cream in your coffee?) but does provide a front-row seat to the day’s teardown action. (Plus, your efforts will bring a little joy to Houston’s vast population of demolition junkies.) If this sounds like the mini-gig of your dreams, tell us why — and tout your credentials to us — through the Swamplot tip line.
Among the items on the to-do list as Swamplot gets back in gear: dusting off those social media platforms. Do us a favor, then, to help Swamplot’s tales of Bayou City eccentricity reach a broader audience: If you haven’t done so already, click on the “Like” button here (or on the Swamplot facebook page itself) to connect with us on Facebook. If you’re a Twitter type, you can also follow us @Swamplot.
Well, we missed you. So why don’t we do something about it? A shiny new Swamplot editorial team is now in place (well, most of it — more on that later), testing out the furniture and getting ready to resume this site’s obsessive coverage of the Houston real estate landscape. Our regular barrage of daily updates will return shortly.
How soon? Watch this space. Or, if you prefer to be notified of Swamplot’s relaunch date by email, make sure we’ve got you on our mailing list, and you’ll be the first-ish to know. You can add yourself to the list by filling out the form here.
