What is ShareGVL?
ShareGVL is a community-building platform that enables folks who live and/or work in the Greater Greenville, SC Area to share their stories from a list of populated questions. One of our goals at ShareGVL is that of humanizing social media; everyone has a story and we will come to find that we all have more similarities than we do that of differences.

Stories, often to referred to as Features, are shared every weekday morning, Monday - Friday, on our social media, newsletter and website. We do not charge individuals for sharing Features as our hope is to keep all stories organic and unbiased. Stories are told best by the people that know them, themselves. Only one Feature is shared per day, totaling five Features per week.
What is a Feature?
A Feature is a story that has been published on the ShareGVL network; newsletter, social media and website. They are simply stories that are told by the individual being represented in the story, themselves.

ShareGVL has a populated list of 13-questions found within our questionnaire. These questions are comprised of, 'Most Interesting Fact, Background, Hobby, etc.' We believe that these questions, when answered both in length and transparently, allow for readers to understand the featured individual on a more personal level, even though the answers to these questions are just a snapshot of time.
How do you decide who is featured?

We value stories that have great length and honesty. Your submission could have morbid or funny stories, but whatever the case, we want you to be honest and put thought into your submission. This is your story and only who know how to tell it best.

Submissions that are honest and thorough are the most likely submissions to be featured.

Remember that Features are 100% free thanks to our partnering sponsors. They will always be that way.

Click here to be taken to our submission page if you are interested in submitting your story. Note: submission of your story does not guarantee that it will be featured. Please refrain from profanity and limit any applicable graphic details from your story as these particular stories are less-likely to be featured.

Note: politicians, candidates, Greenville celebrities and thereof are featured from time-to-time and sometimes can be feature more often than not in a given week.

It is our goal at ShareGVL to publicize an organic story for our readers. We've designed our 13-questions questionnaire based on general human-interest and as a platform that does not enable a politician, candidate, etc. to limit his or her political believes. We also reach out to opposing political parties to submit their respective story, keeping the ShareGVL platform as unbiased as possible.
