We are always looking for interesting content for the Blog. Here are some suggested topics although this list is far from exhaustive:
News and opinion about recent developments in technology.
Sharing videos that you have made or photos that you have taken,
Write ups about trips, meets or events.
DIY builds and modifications.
Stuff for sale (classified).
HOW TO POST
If you are new to the site and the Blog then we may ask you to email your first article to the editor to check over before posting it.
Once we know that you are legit then you will be sent an email address to post to the blog with.
Compose your email as you want it to appear and attach any photos. Remember that everything in the email will be posted to the blog so make sure you edit and format your article accordingly.
When adding photo's, attach them in the order that you talk about them.
If posting videos, please post the URL to the video where you want it to appear in the text and the site editor will convert this for you.
HOW TO STRUCTURE YOUR ARTICLE
Try to compose the article so that it is a structured, stand alone piece with an introduction, main points and your conclusions/questions.
If you have a number of similar things to post frequently, consider condensing these in to more substantial, less frequent articles. This will have more of an impact for readers and avoid detracting from other author's articles..
We suggest a word count of between 50 and 500 words.
Unless making a video post, always provide at least one photo and, where possible, provide at least 1 photograph per 200 words.
Make sure that you have written permission to share photo's and videos that are not own by you.
Be prepared to interact with people who comment on your article. People may not agree so please keep things civil. We will deal with trolls!
Please make sure that your article is spell checked and grammatically correct.
Posts to present videos may be brief. The current system doesn't allow videos to be posted direct to the blog via the email system so just add the link to the video where you want it in the body and we will convert it for you.
Remember to add your name to your posts! People want to know who wrote them.
