9b climbing NEWS channel: how to become climbers' journalists

Imagine 9b as an on line newspaper written by climbers for climbers.
Every climber can become a real climbing reporter on 9b.

It is not required to know how to write like a first class climbing journalist.
Everyone of us can become sort of a "real-time sensor" of what is happening in our climbing neighborhood by providing with stories, pictures, videos or audio abstracts.
Accidentaly or not, we all witness events that deserve being reported on, for which traditional climbing media do not have interest in or do not have the means to focus on.

Why ?
To make Your voice heard and report on facts You have identified and that You think are not well covered or ignored by traditional climbing media, Your own facts.

If You want to publish YOUR climbing news in Your own language, You can write them in Your country-language group or in Your 9blog.
If You want to publish YOUR climbing news in english, You can write them in forums.
Your news activity will appear on 9b "latest activity" box.

Or You can send news or just informations referred to climbing areas and/or single sectors and ascents close to where You live.

What is an online news ?

On line You can post not only text, also photos, videos, audios, links: You can decide Your best mix :-)

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)
