Exclamation Looking for RaptorsForum Bloggers

Hey guys, throwing out an open invitation here in that we're looking to add to our existing RaptorsForum Blogging team which currently consists of just LX and Jay. While our message board is thriving, we once again would like to put a strong focus on our blog which was a main staple of RaptorsForum long before the message board took off.

We still get a ton of traffic to our main blog page (Raptors Blog - Toronto Raptors Blog & Message Forum) so views will not be hard to come by. We're looking for those writers that are going to draw alot of attention with their stories.

So, we have some ideas on how we'd like to move forward with this (and I know I've spoken to a few members already), but in the meantime we would like to see who in fact would be interested in being added to the RF staff as a blogger.

Let me know if your interested and then take from there.

So far, I have two people that have expressed interest. If your more comfortable PM'ing instead of posting here in public then please feel free to do so.

Preferably Raptors related topics, but we're not too picky just as long as its basketball related.

One worded sentences don't count as a blog.

well, i meant something different. just don't know how to explain it.


um, can it be about like the Raptors history or who they should consider adding to their roster?


or does it have to be all about straight facts like how george was traded for bellinelli or kapono for evans or the rasho signing.

We want creativity and something different. Witty stuff seems to do very well in successful blogs out there. Anyone can talk about facts and stats, but how its presented is the hard part.

I just wanted to make it clear that we're not just accepting anyone who wants to blog. The staff will be going through the quality, breadth, and scope of the writer's work before we make any decisions.
