What’s the best part of moving into a new place? Decorating, of course!  And then showing it off.

Have fun designing for your apartment

We created a tumblr page to serve as an interactive, community-driven inspiration board for decorating your new digs. Our goal is “to create a resource for people to share ideas and inspiration on how to decorate and customize your new digs,” eventually becoming “a one-stop source for all home improvement projects”!

How does it work? If you already have a tumblr account, you can follow us by clicking here. (If you’re not on tumblr already, it’s free and easy to set up an account and you can do that by clicking here.) We want your submissions! Show us pictures of your new digs and share your tips, tricks, and resources. Know a great hardware store in your neighborhood? Tell us about it! Had a great experience working with a local designer or decorator? Let us know!

Maybe you’re not the DIY-type, and that’s fine with us! You can always reblog any visual inspiration you find on the web that you think others would be interested in! There are so many ideas out there and we want to compile them all! We want to build a community of DIYers, weekend designers, and home renovators.  Let’s make the Newdigs Tumblr page the ultimate in Rochester apartment living resources!

 

You are a Community Storyteller

Dinosaur BBQ, Rochester, NY If you’re not already familiar with the Newdigs story, we are a humble local start-up with large aspirations. We want to simultaneously bring you the best apartment search experience you’ll ever have, the easiest way for landlords to market and manage their properties, and a robust blog that will help our users get to know the rental market intimately, so that they’re capable of making very informed decisions. Its a lot on the plate of a budding, incubated, locally boot-strapped start-up… so we’re reaching out to you, the Rochester community, for some help.

We need all hands on deck, and we know you’ve got a story to tell! Whether you’re an active member of your neighborhood, or a passive enjoyer of its restaurants & boutiques, you could probably tell us something about what it is to live where you live. Your stories will help not only fellow Rochestererians get to know the other neighborhoods near them, but they’ll help future residents decide where to live when they get to town. Plus, becoming a community storyteller will give you a creative outlet to share your opinions on the finest and funnest things that Rochester has to offer: events, cafes, restaurants, parks, concerts… the list could go on for miles. Your stories shape our neighborhoods. And, whether you’re doing it just for fun, or because you like to write and need an outlet, or because you’re looking to become better known in your community, becoming a Newdigs storyteller can help open doors of opportunity, sometimes in totally unexpected ways.

If you’re interested, contact the chief storyteller (that’s me) Kristin Munson:
You can reach me by email: kristin@newdigs.com

I can’t wait to hear your stories! Thanks for helping us grow Newdigs into a great company that can make Rochester proud.
