FanPost

I hear you loud and clear

Having just read the last Fan Post, I get it. Some of you want things to be a little different and interactive around here.


It does upset me that there are those that don't like the way things are around here. For that I can only apologize. But it's also an opportunity to figure out what we can do to make it better.

I'll start with this: We could use four-to-five new contributors to add to the website. The post is correct — the perception that I'm monopolizing all the articles is out there. Not to go into detail, but given the fact that contributors aren't paid, it's hard for me to demand anyone to write. It should be for fun and on your own time.

That said, the more quality contributors we have, the more in depth pieces we can write. When it's just me writing the majority of the stuff, I have to focus on EVERYTHING, which leaves little time to sit down and write something long and thoughtful.

I'll scour through the Fan Posts and select four-to-five names and send out an email. The only requirement is that you have to create a new account with your first and last name. One thing that won't change on my end is the feeling that if you're going to post a story on the main page under a byline, then it has to be your real name. Screen names are for the message boards.

If you feel you'd like to be considered as a contributor, definitely comment below and explain why. Also, explain what you can add to the site. For everyone, list what this site could use more of.

I'll also do my part to promote the Fan Posts on the main page more. Perhaps one per day?

I'm all ears and am listening. Help me to help you and hopefully we can all be on the same page moving forward.
