I’m off to the Blog

4 Oct


So, the big announcement this week is that we are going to officially become a blogging website.

Interested in becoming a 40KUK Podcast author…read on.

It all kicks off with an article from Dave ‘The Unfitness’ Symcox tomorrow and then we will have regular articles from listeners and cast members.

A few months ago Dave’s slow witted mind realised that we had the capacity to add articles to our website. In his usual casual fashion he asked if anyone would like to submit their work. We have been overwhelmed by the reception of the articles. Even though Dave was slap dash, late in putting them up for authors and even a little cheeky with the pictures from time to time the content of those authors made up for his blunders and showed that there was a real appetite to read the articles.

A big aim for the 40KUK Podcast was that it would become and remain a community based show. We have strived to be as inclusive as time will allow, searching for as many players and listeners as possible that can contribute to the podcast; we see regular articles on our website  as the next natural step in that aim.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for regular articles related to 40K which will be published at a regular time to enable readers to look out for those articles and build a readership. The articles can cover any part of the hobby that you choose.

How Regular?

We are really flexible on the regularity of the articles. They can be once a week, every two weeks or once every eight weeks, hell if you are retired once a day. The only stipulation is that we would prefer the article to go out at the same time i.e. every third Thursday for readers to look out for. At the same time, we realise that many of us live busy lives and if you would prefer to send an article occasionally when inspiration strikes that is perfectly fine.

Name

All articles will have a regular name that you choose. For instance Dave’s will be called ‘Balls to the Wall’ which has nothing to do with 40K, or any of the subject matters he will be covering. It is merely just a title for listeners to look out for. Each article will then contain a subtitle for the topic that the piece if covering.

Picture

To help readers look out for their favourite articles we would like all blogs to have their own picture. This can be anything and may not even be connected to 40K – merely the picture readers associate with your work. You can either supply a picture, or we will be able to provide one for the article.

Censorship

There will be very little editing on the articles that are submitted. We can’t take any swear words but other than that we are very open to any opinions. There will be a disclaimer which states that the opinions may not necessarily represent those of the podcast. However, we believe that all opinions, no matter how controversial should be heard.

As Mike has mentioned below, we need a contact. So, if you have any queries or would like to submit a regular article, please contact Dave on his email david@40kuk.com

      Oh, that was stupid of me not to leave a contact – I’ll edit the piece.

      We will eventually have a blog email specifically for articles, until then mine is fine david@40kuk.com

      Good link, buddy – I’ll see if we are free but would be good to meet other ‘bloggers’.
