While Iâ€™m the administrator for the blog and forums, neither are really mine. I created them as tools for the use of the entire NCI community, and with things settled down I feel like itâ€™s well past time to hand over the blog to the community! This post is an invitation to all NCI members and friends to apply to become a blogger for NCI, to write in this space so people donâ€™t have to read my words all the time. More info and what weâ€™re looking for after the break!
There are a few basic things weâ€™re looking for:
A concept: weâ€™re looking for people with a passion for one specific part of NCI or SL, and who can write about that passion. Maybe thereâ€™s an event you really like that you could write about from time to time. Maybe you want to write about what itâ€™s like teaching a class for NCI, or blogging as you take every single class NCI has to offer (craziness!).
Some experience with blogging: You donâ€™t have to be a techno-wizard, but some experience with what blogging means, how to do it, and how to use blogging tools (WordPress in particular)
Time and Passion: You donâ€™t have to write every day, or even every week. Thereâ€™s no word-count or set number of hours you have to put it. But be sure that you have the time to write something youâ€™d be proud of, and have enough material to keep things flowing.
How to apply:
Okay, hereâ€™s the important part, right? I am going to make a thread on the forums for applications. Just add a post to that thread explaining your concept and a very rough estimate of how often you plan to blog about it. Thatâ€™s it! And itâ€™ll be an open thread so anyone who doesnâ€™t want to apply can still comment if you really like an idea, or think of another topic that would go well with an idea, or whatever.
