I have this blog that you are reading right now, but honestly, I rarely post anything. This is a great opportunity for guest blogging.
Want to fix that? Or maybe you need a third party to publish to establish some writing creds? (Note: I’m not asking anyone to work for free! This site does not generate a ton of cash and it is not a subsidiary of a multinational media firm. Huff post does ask people to work for free, fyi.) I’m providing a creative outlet for people who would like to post opinions, reviews, or talk about geekdom, but don’t have a platform to do so.
Either respond to this post to inquire or send an email to email@example.com.
Posts should be:
- Literate. What does that mean? Written in an interesting and thoughtful manner with a cohesive theme.
- Be PG 13 or suitable for teens.
- All quotes/photos/theories properly labeled and attributed.
- A description on why people should consider your opinion or why you are an expert. (This site has a wide national audience, they probably won’t know who you are! Which is good, wider exposure!)
- I, Staff Robot, have to learn something from your article or blog post.
- It has to be aimed at the geek audience.
- At least 1500 words.
Things it should NOT be:
- Gamergate, yawn!
- Trolling or Doxxing
- Fanboying on Cosplay pics – There seems to be an epidemic of this on facebook lately. It’s one of the dumbest trends that I’ve seen in a long while. Nobody cares how hot you think a particular cosplay is.
- Conspiracy theories written in ALL CAPS.
- How fandom has persecuted and offended you. (ie. no microaggression articles, please.)
- Make someone sue Zuffy Robot
But say, you want to do blog on how
- Feminism is effecting the comics industry? Good!
- How gaming sites let advertising sway their reviews? Good!
- What this Con is like? Good!
- How playing this game made you a better/worse person? Good!
- Geeky arts & Crafts? Good!
- Kickstarter Controversies or non-delivery of rewards? (Kittens in a Blender, I’m looking at you.) No trolling of competitors though. Good!
- Instructions on how to Cosplay? Or posting your own Cosplay pics? Good.
- What’s the best way to prepare for a three day Con? Good.
- Current themes in science fiction or fantasy.
- A book review on a geeky book.
- Science Topics. (why space elevators are dumb/great ideas.)
- Why everyone should eat like a Hobbit.
I’m sure there are many other geeky topics you can think of. If it’s close or needs some editing, I will work with you on that.
