Does World of Matticus accept Guest Posts?

In a word, yes. The first thing you have to remember is that in the World of Matticus, there is but one god: Matticus himself. Guest posts usually happen when I put the word out that I needs help.

In the past year, I’ve opened up guest posting to bloggers and writers that were interested in getting their feet wet. Today, I’m officially announcing the green light for open guests posts as well as setting down guidelines and suggests for writing them. Here’s a few examples for you to consider.

Guidelines

  • Originality – It can’t have been published on the internet before.
  • Exclusivity – Sorry, the post can’t be published anywhere else (as a guest post in another blog or on yours)
  • Credits – Of course I’ll let you link to your own blog! That’s the point!
Why write a guest post?

Exposure - By writing compelling articles, stories or posts in general on other blogs (not just mine, mind you), you increase your own visibility and exposure. View it as a chance to promote yourself and your work! Now you be thinking to yourself “why write on someone else’s blog when I can augment my own?” I encourage you to think in a different direction. By writing an insanely awesome blog post for another blogger and having it published, that blogger’s audience will want to know more about you and what else you have to offer.

Trial – Not sure if blogging is the right thing for you? At the very fundamental core of blogging is to communicate. You are translating your ideas and visions from your mind onto the screen. Don’t spend time establishing a blog only to discover that writing is difficult for you or that your interest has waned. Do the writing first then build the blog. Try writing a sample post and determine if it’s something you think you’ll enjoy down the road. Web sites come in all sorts of designs and styles. The one thing that all blogs have in common is the display of information.

You’ve decided to write a guest post? Excellent! Here’s a few things you might wish to consider:

Consider the audience

If you’re writing about the nature of Hunters, PvP skills for Warriors, or the latest fashion news on Death Knights, you’ll want to consider another blog unless you can make it relevant for the readers on this blog.

What makes this blog appealing for you? Chances are, your answer will be the same as the other many thousands of readers. Browse through the archives to find some of your favourite posts and you’ll get a handle for what works and what doesn’t.

Matticus is beneficial

The one thing I stress most from the team here is to make your information useful. Give the reader something to take with them when they finish.

How does a Discipline Priest react in this raid situation? Did your GM handle a particularly difficult problem in a smooth fashion? Topics like that would be right up the alley in the World of Matticus.

Content in the World of Matticus should help answer problems that players find in the World of Warcraft.

Matticus is professional

I don’t care if you’re on the top 5v5 team in the world, or the best ranked Ret Paladin on WWS. At the same time, I’m not expecting you to be Dan Brown either.

Sounds great! How do I sign up?

Drop me a line on my contact form. You can include a post within the body of the form there or get in touch with me first and float an idea my way to see how it sounds. I’ll respond with a confirmation and a giant thank you! If I don’t respond within a week, I must’ve not received it or I completely forgot about it. Feel free to poke me with a gentle reminder!

If you have a blog, it’s a good idea to link to your best blog posts. Note that it’s not required that you have a blog.

At World of Matticus, our goal is to deliver great articles for World of Warcraft players of all types. Writing requires a lot of energy and time. Coming up with ideas takes time. Gathering the screenshots and preparing articles takes time. We want to provide readers with excellent stories and quality advice and that’s where we can use your help.

Can I be a blogger on World of Matticus?

Yes, absolutely! Although having blogging or writing experience is preferable, it is not required. Check out our guidelines:

  • Send us an e-mail (at the bottom) with a description of yourself, your character, your guild, and your interests,
  • If you have experience writing online, do include URLs and other examples in your e-mail (either a few paragraphs of something you’ve written although URLs are preferable),
  • Include your ideas and suggestions for topics and posts that you’re determined to explore and write about

Single guest posts are great although a long-term partnership is better. With that in mind, is extremely important for us that you are really interested in the material that you want to write about. You have to have the drive and the passion to write. Because if you don’t care, why would anyone else?

Article lengths don’t have to be long. The key here is that you want to share your knowledge and ideas. E.g. you want to discuss tips about your class, raid strategies or guild management techniques. Share your ideas, strategies and thoughts with other players.

Our topics

In the beginning, this blog catered towards Holy Priests. As time went on, it slowly included aspects for the raiding Holy Priest. Guild business and leadership was mixed into the blog. A Resto Druid was added. Then a Shaman. Now it includes material that Guild leaders would be interested in reading.

The majority of readers on World of Matticus are primarily healers, raiders, and bloggers. That’s a pretty wide sphere of influence, if I do say so myself. Keep the audience in mind when you’re writing a post. For example, most healers may not understand certain tanking concepts and you may wish to elaborate more on terms that you’ll be using.

Here’s a list of topics that we prefer:

  • Healing: Gear thoughts, boss techniques, improvements
  • Raiding: Specific strategies, discipline
  • Guild management: Loot systems, day-to-day affairs, policy

Our expectations

We can’t publish every guest article that comes our way. There is a level of quality that we like to maintain. On the other hand, there are a ton of players who want to share their knowledge and contribute.

What would we like from guest authors?

  • You like to share and present a showcase of players with similar trends (gallery) or
  • You have unique ideas and methods that you want to share (guides) or
  • You want to teach configuration and customization in a step-by-step process (tutorials)

Think you can fit in with the rest of the team? We’ll be interested. We’d love to hear from you. We’d love to work with you. We’ll definitely need you. The team would be absolutely thrilled to have you.

Still want to write?

Send us an e-mail. We’re always willing to meet people and try out new ideas. We’d love to have you on the team!
