So after 2+years of running this blog all by my lonesome, I feel that it’s time to add a fresh voice or two to the mix. Yep, I’m looking for a contributor (or two). Chances are that if you are a regular visitor to the blog (and thank you if you are), you know what kind of stuff I like to talk about here.
I’m interested in D&D 4e writers primarily, focusing on DMing. Why? Well, it’s what this blog was founded on, it’s what a lot of folks come here for, and it’s currently what I’m in need of help with.
So here’s how I’ll do it: If you are interested, leave me a comment below, and if possible link to a blog article or two if you have a blog or have ever written for a blog. I want to see samples of your writing. If you prefer to not make things public, go to the “contact” page here on the site and shoot me a line.
Just to clear the air, here’s what I’m not looking for:
- Character Optimization articles
- Non-4e stuff
- Industry News
- Game recaps or campaign world write-ups
All that stuff doesn’t fit the mold here, and if an editorial comes up every now and then, I’ll tackle it. 🙂
What I’m looking for is more akin to:
- DM tips
- DIY type stuff to enhance the game
- DMing theory stuff
- Table/Player Management stuff
- Neat Houserules
- 4e reviews from the point of view of a DM
- Experiences at the table that others can learn from
So yeah, it is very much aimed at the DM, as it has since I launched the site.
The amount of articles I’d like from the new contributor(s) will vary, but at least a bi weekly article seems good to start.
If you’ve been looking to blog, I think it’s a good opportunity. Not to toot my own horn, but newbiedm.com is an Ennie nominated website, with an also nominated companion podcast, so it’s a not-too-shabby entry point to the blogging/podcasting world.
Interested? Let me know.
