How You Can Build Your Community On The Roundup

Mum Festival 2016

5 ways to make The Roundup into an awesome local resource.

The Roundup is a space for community news, and no one knows your community better than you. Here are 5 other ways you can make The Roundup into an awesome local resource:

1. Ask a local question

The Roundup is the perfect space for hyperlocal questions that a Google search might not be able to answer. Questions can be the best way to begin a conversation over a local news story or to find a lost pet.

If you have a burning question about your community, create a post and see if your neighbors have the answer.

2. Share a local news tip with your neighbors

Be the first to report on a local happening. News tips don’t need to be serious, though they can be. Our only rules: all posts must be local, civil, truthful and non-promotional. 

If you want to promote your business, contact us.

3. Promote a business, list a job, sell an item

Local businesses are the backbone of any community. That’s why we started “Community Posts” a platform designed to help business owners and sellers reach their neighbors. For $1 a day, you can reach communities outside of your town.

4. Events go on our calendar

All local event posts are free on the Roundup. Add you event here. Whether you’re advertising a clearance sale or inviting the town to your block party, post it. Just make sure you give your neighbors enough time to see it.


5. Become a Roundup Mayor

If you want to take a leadership role in your neighborhood, then we should talk about you becoming a Roundup Mayor. Our mayors help to keep The Roundup a neighborly place and to ensure The Roundup is producing local content that reflects what’s happening in their community.

Those who simply want to share an occasional story about their community can also become Roundup Contributors.

Our Contributors author articles about town halls, school events and other local issues. Public officials and leaders of local non-profits are encouraged to join.

A rare, clockwise-spinning tornado touches down in South Dakota

South Dakota doesn’t get a lot of tornadoes, but a twister there last weekend was particularly rare — because it was spinning clockwise.

That was long enough for it to knock down seven trees at a farmstead outside of Estelline, which is about 80 miles north of Sioux Falls.
