Call For Guest Posts

Hello! I have a proposition for you.  I’m heading away for a couple of days next weekend, travelling deep into the wilderness of Britain’s roads and byways. Trust me, there may not be many trees but some of the behaviour I’ve seen out there Between Cities is pretty wild.

So, there will be some driving on Friday and Monday around next weekend, and cars don’t really mix well with blogging. I don’t think the other drivers or my passenger would appreciate me trying to mix them anyway.

Last time I went away, a few weeks ago, I was unexpectedly away slightly longer and didn’t link any posts for you guys for an extra day.

I’d like to avoid a repeat of that, so this time I’m wondering if you would like to contribute a guest post. It’d really help us cover the Pot (and y’know, not crash, were i to get the blogging bug), give everyone something interesting to read, and mayhap you’ll enjoy it too.

  • How many do you need?

With any luck I will have one feature post ready for Friday. That means the Pot will be short 3-5 posts in total, Friday and Monday, ‘cos we don’t usually post at the weekend. Though we could as a one off, depending how many submissions we get. I have no idea how popular this callout will be – I’m not daring to think we’ll get many (or any!) necessarily and if we don’t that weekend will be a bit dry for posts I’m afraid. But on the chance we get lots of guest post volunteers, I’ll have to close submissions early. I’ll post again about this when it happens.

  • How do I contribute?

If you’re interested in guest posting, drop me a line in the comments below, using the contact form, facebook or twitter, and we confer about it. I may even have cookies ready. All told, I’ll need guest posts done and ready to go at the latest by next Thursday 14th, 4 pm PST/midnight BST so that I can schedule them before I head off.

  • What sort of post?

Up to you. Here are some ideas, and I’m open to others if you chat to me about what you want to do:

  • Ye olde MMO Melting Pot style – link to a blog post you find interesting. Tell people what it’s about and why you think they want to read it
  • Got a blog yourself? Cool, maybe do a roundup of your own best posts. I’ll be doing a single-blog best post roundup early next week to get this idea rolling as a proper feature, so following up with your own blog is an option.
  • Traditional post – got something you want to write about but haven’t yet? Your own opinion rather than a link post? Feel free to write it up and use it as a guest post, it’ll go up as a feature
  • Addon roundup – have we not been featuring addons you think are crucial? Let everyone know what we’re missing. It’ll go up as an installment of the “Fresh Brew” addon series.

Hope to hear from you, and thanks for reading, guys!
