I want to get straight to the point. I’m looking to add a 3rd blogger to the World of Matticus crew.
Originally, I was envisioning a contest or a competition where participants would write a weekly post and I’d let my readers vote who would stay or go. Of course, I’d have a panel of “expert blogging judges” to provide their thoughtful opinions and critique. Each week, they would have to create a post for a particular theme or in a certain style. For example, one week would be a list, another week would be an RP post or I could get them to generate their own Cosmo-ish post.
But I’m not sure if I have the interest from readers to pull off a project like this. Maybe a duel to the death on one of those floating rocks in Netherstorm would work. Who knows? Maybe I will get enough interest. I know I’d definitely I’d definitely ask Kestrel, Anna, and Phaelia to guest judge ;).
The Underdog Blogger
- You are a motivated writer at heart
- Ideas come to you but you’re unsure about them
- You don’t have the technological know how or time to establish a blog
- You’re not comfortable/confident with promoting or marketing your blog even if you had one
- You want to be heard but don’t feel loud enough
Does the above sound familiar?
What I’m offering
I am offering you a chance at the microphone here on my blog. You have the opportunity to bypass problems that early blog startups face. You won’t have to worry about security, maintenance, promotion or any of that stuff. All you’d have to do is simply write. I have no expectations for you to write daily. For example, Wyn volunteers to write a post or 2 every week. She chips in whenever work and real life allow, and I still shoulder the majority of the posts. But that doesn’t mean I can’t use an extra set of hands.
You can even view this as an opportunity to learn more about blogging in more detail. The experience gained writing here could be used to help springboard your own projects down the road.
I could really use some help.
What I’m looking for and how to apply
If you’re considering this position, just understand and recognize the fact that it’s not a paid position.
This will be an exercise in creativity. In 500 words (plus/minus 50) or less, can you tell me what you are looking forward to the most in Wrath of the Lich King? Whether you are a tester or not has no relevance. Even if you want to try it for fun, by all means. Feel free to leave a comment here or contact me directly using the form (it gets my attention quicker, and that’s a big hint).
EDIT: August 18th. World of Matticus turns 1.
