Writers, Are You Ready?

Writers, Are You Ready?

Postby GoD_GraveDancer » Sun Jan 24, 2010 7:23 pm

Ive been thinking of ways to expand our presence on the web. One thing that caught my attention recently was a user-submitted article that got full page publishment in the latest GameInformer. I\'d love for one of you to have that notoriety one day and feel that the first step would be to post a blog on the GameInformer website. Only members can post blogs, comments, etc. If you\'re not a member if GI, I\'d suggest doing so, or if you would like, I can post your material for you just to test the waters - your permission would be needed in this case.

There are a few articles that I feel would make a great blog post on GI:
Get In The Game by Axikal
The Growth of Virtual Online Gaming Economies by RenegadeMavrick
MAG Beta Review by JunkyJunker
ModernWarfare 2: Multiplayer by Musashi1596

I think those articles are ready for a simple copy/paste onto the GI site, but we do need references back to PGz added to them all. Perhaps a "signature" of sorts would suffice? I.E. Written by RenegadeMavrick (Admin - [url=http://www.PrestigeGamerz.com\" onclick=\"window.open(this.href);return false;]http://www.PrestigeGamerz.com[/url] )

Thoughts?

I think it\'s a great idea Gravy, I fully support this. I\'m game for anything that will raise the profile of the site.
Due to having exams this month my output has been limited, but this will be rectified come Thursday. I personally intend to write more articles along the likes of those by Ax and RM you mentioned, which would perhaps be more prone to outside publishing.

Definitely an idea worth pursuing.

Its intention is also to raise the profile of you guys. You all have some great ideas for articles and some of them need to be seen outside PGz - just remember your roots. 8)

Gravy, I\'m fine with you using any of my reviews. I will have a full MAG review by this weekend(hopefully). Moving on Tuesday so I might not get it done till next week but I will have my UC2 review any day now. Fixing up some last minute details.

Let me know if you want to use any of my reviews and I will give the :thumbleft: :thumbright:
