Fun Friday: The N Judah Chronicles Is Looking For A Few Good Guest Bloggers…

Next week I’m taking off for a business trip, first to Washington DC, and then to points out and about around the East Coast. Unlike other times when I’ve been out of town, this time around I won’t be able to blog much from afar – heck I won’t even be able to blog about DC’s Metro system since the convention I’m going to is in some weird suburb of DC I’ve never heard of (they might as well have had it on the Moon, it’s that remote).
Anyway, although I may be able to post a twitter here or there, I’d rather the site not go dark for a week and a half. While I’m sure I can get Mason Powell to post something here and there, he’s a busy guy too. So, after consulting The Internet, I decided to open up a couple of “guest blogger” positions here to help keep an eye on all things N-Judah and MUNI related while I’m out of town.
The requirements are simple – post an observation made whilst on your daily commute, or a short commentary on the latest in MUNI related news, or pictures you might want to share with the Loyal Readers. I can’t pay you millions of dollars in salary, but I can offer a free beer/coffee/whatever when I get back.
To inquire, simply send an email to me with the subject line “guest blogger.” Briefly explain what you like about the site, what you might write about (or take pics of) and I’ll get back to you (it helps a little if you’re familiar with MovableType 4.01 but not required). I’m looking for a few folks who can take turns posting once a day (more if there’s a MUNI FailWhale). The house rules here are simple: be nice, don’t make up stuff, be funny in the “funny ha ha” not “funny omigod” way), and have fun!
I’ll be able to approve posts and make edits from afar, and may even chime in via The Twitter depending on whether I get a break from the day job’s duties.
I’ll pick 2 or 3 folks – and not to worry, if you don’t get picked this time, it doesn’t mean I hate you or anything – it looks like I’ll be taking a few more business trips this year, so there will be plenty of opportunities to guest blog.
Thanks for your support, and thanks for reading the N Judah Chronicles!

    I have a REALLY stupid question for you. since moving back to the Bay Area I have wanted to take the N-Judah line and its cool old streetcars but can’t figure-out exactly where the line runs, its times, and the cost. I KNOW there is a muni page that has all this down but my limited computer skills have shined this year.
    Any advice is appreciated!

    Hi Tom!
    The SFMTA site is a little confusing because when you ask it for things like a route map, it either diverts you to 511.org OR to a PDF. Also, many stops (and all stations downtown) have a system map. This link SHOULD take you to the route timetable and map at 511 : http://tinyurl.com/dekd28
    You can also try 311 from your phone also. Enjoy!

    Dear Greg
    Nice going with this site. Many of the bloggers seem dissatisfied with the N instead of enjoying the rare privilege of riding a grand old street car line. I was fortunate enough to use the N for going to Poly, work, Kezar, or downtown in the 1930s. It was always a satisfying thrill to be on the N. I don’t recall any complaints in those days.
