10 Essentials - Sunbrella

Hello and welcome fellow explorer!

There is so much to explore in the amazing Southwest corner of our country that there is no way we can visit and share all these wonderful places.

We are always looking for outdoor enthusiasts to contribute by busting out their mad skills such as photography, videography, and graphic design (for products and printables for kids) and those who are knowledgable about trails, points of interest, wildlife, geology, and more!

Once we get the site going, we will be working with brands to receive items to develop reviews, which each author will be able to keep the products they review.

Southwest Explorers Demographics

Our target demographic are readers who want to enjoy the outdoors with their family and/or pets. [Our long-term goal is to develop outdoor activity products, booklets, and printables for kids to get excited about exploring the Southwest with their families.)

Articles should be a “non-technical guide” that is informative to help our readers know everything about an area to help them plan their upcoming outdoor experiences (focusing on trail conditions and terrain, amenities, and other things to do in an area).

Our readers are located primarily in the United States and search for articles that are relevant to the southwest.
