It’s official! We are writers for online campground finder: The Dryt. When we first heard about The Dyrt and what they were building, we got very excited. Finding good places to camp and being able to book them directly, was not an easy task. What is a good campground to one person (who loves ATVs and loud music), might not be considered good by another (who loves hiking and silent stargazing). Having user reviews as well as photos and video tell the real story is invaluable.
We loved that you can search for campsites through their website or app, and they have fun contests to win for gear and other camping goodies based on how many reviews you write. They are building out the ability to book campgrounds directly through the site which will save us a lot of time and energy as we’re traveling about.
While living in Portland got to know the founders, Sarah and Kevin, and think they are super cool people. When we had the opportunity, we also made a financial investment in the company. So when it came time for us to go nomadic in our RV, we approached them about helping promote the company while we’re on the road.
Kevin invited all four of us into the office to meet with him and a some of his team to talk about our plans. They helped us understand their goals for the coming year, how to write for search engine optimization, and we talked through ways we could help promote The Dryt while we’re out and about. I was so impressed with how Kevin lead the meeting and how well the team included the girls in the conversation and planning.
One of the big ways we will be helping with promotion is writing for The Dyrt Magazine. Our first article, an interview with us and our coming adventures, is now live.
I see these writing projects as both helpful to a company we really believe in, but also great educational opportunities for the girls. They learned a lot about the internet start-up world in our meeting in the Dyrt’s office and they enjoyed the process of writing their own bios for the interview. We’ve also been engaging the girls in the process for writing campground reviews as well.
We will post an update here whenever a new Dyrt article goes live!
