I'm putting out a 'last call' for bloggers who wish their hard work to be profiled here on HeroPress, as I look to wrap up this second season of Six Of The Best interviews.
Every fortnight, HeroPress profiles a distinctly different voice of the blogosphere through half-a-dozen questions (see below), with the idea of not only helping promote their own work but also encouraging others to think about taking up blogging.
So far this season we've spoken to:
- Elfmaids & Octopi (RPGs)
- Halls Of The Nephilim (RPGs & horror)
- Chirine's Workbench (RPGs & wargames)
- Doomslakers (RPGs)
- Follow Me, And Die! (RPGs)
- Greyhawkery (RPGs)
- City Of Iron/Necrotic Gnome Productions (RPGs)
- The Stronghold Rebuilt (wargames)
- Barking Alien (RPGs)
- JB Publishing (RPGs)
- Ancient Vaults & Eldritch Secrets (RPGs)
- Dark Worlds Quarterly (sci-fi & fantasy)
And you can catch up on the Class of 2015/16 here and see what they had to say.
With everyone tackling the same questions it makes their answers easier to compare and contrast.
Would you like to be counted among their number?
Although this season has focused, primarily, on roleplaying blogs, it doesn't have to continue that way if you've got an interesting blog you'd like to talk about.
From family history and crafting, through My Little Pony and WWE, to kayaking and curling, I'd like to hear about what you write... and why.
I'm always looking to celebrate the infinite possibilities of blogging, by profiling as broad a cross-section of bloggers as possible, highlighting the wide variety of subjects that get people talking.
This is all part of my drive to be an advocate for the art of blogging, helping authors promote their sites while simultaneously sharing good practice and wisdom with fellow, and aspiring, bloggers.
Unlike other forms of social media, blogging allows you to make your space your own, shape it to your personality, and control how your message comes across. For me, that's one of the reasons why I love and celebrate blogging over such outlets as Facebook, Google+ etc
Of course, if you are podcaster, feel free to answer the questions anyway, substituting 'podcast' for blog...
The set questions are:
- (1) How long have been blogging, and how’d you get into it in the first place?
- (2) What do you blog about, and how frequently do you post?
- (3) How does your blog stand out from all the rest?
- (4) What’s the best (and worst) thing about blogging?
- (5) Do you have any self-imposed rules (or guidelines) for your blog?
- (6) Name one blog everyone should be reading (other than your own).
