The TalkBack Challenge #1 #NBI2015

Pen-icon

In years past, the TalkBack Challenge was a call to action, and this year is no exception. Last year, during my inaugural run as a member of the NBI Committee, Doone was running things and he posed this challenge to participants in order to get bloggers new and old alike to start writing. One of the topics was about why you support the NBI, and another was about PvP. I distinctly remember these topics making the rounds of the blogosphere, and it was nice to hear so many different opinions on the matter. I aim to make this year’s NBI similar, but I’m approaching this a little differently. Rather than giving you a list of topics to choose from, instead I’m going to posit a single question, and allow you to answer at your leisure. This challenge will be in...

The NBI 2015 Kicks Off

nbi_icon

I’ve known this day was coming for months. I thought back to last year’s NBI, the first one I was involved with, and recalled many fond memories. I looked forward to this year’s NBI with much excitement. The gameplan was discussed. Leaders came forward. Things needed to get done. Then I just up and went out of town for a week, and next thing I knew the day was here and there was so much to do! So here we are. It’s May 1st, and the #NBI2015 has officially kicked off. I’m not the first person to post about it, no I’m probably one of the last. However, I did manage to collate a list of those who have already posted about the event, and there’s plenty of pertinent information to be read. If you are a person who has...

It’s Time …!!! NBI 2015 Looking for Organizers!

Broadcast

Ok, time to round up community leaders and begin planning and organizing for NBI 2015! I know it’s early, but if you’re interested in helping organize the event this year, this is the time to put the word out. I’m hoping we can do even better than last year with discovering new bloggers and bringing them into our community. If you’ve got some bright, maybe crazy, totally unorthodox and completely fresh ideas and willing to dedicate some of your time to help make this happen — we’re looking for you. I think one of the best ways to grow our community is to be committed to bringing something new each year. I also think fresh leadership helps keep the NBI from becoming too insular. We want to be a resource for all gamers and we’re aware that there are many...

Blogging with a Schedule

Friendly advice from our neighborhood Iogro Merrybelly: Hey all you fellow bloggers and writers!  If you all are like me you have a crazy busy schedule and probably struggle finding time to post.  Though I’ve been blogging for six or so years now…time is the one thing I just can’t get more of.  It took me quite a long time to get a system down of when I wanted to post, what content I wanted to do, and that system isn’t perfect by any means but it sure does help.  I’m hoping my little system might help you as well. – …READ MORE If you want a little bit of advice on how to balance your time and writing, you can finish reading the article at A Hobbit’s Journey.

Blaugust Coming in August!

Neighborhood writer and fellow gamer Belghast is sponsoring an event this year that he’s named Blaugust. This is a great opportunity for all bloggers, but especially Newbie Bloggers, to engage with the community once more before the Summer is up. In Bel’s words: The idea is rather simple. During the month of August I challenge you my blogging peers to take up the mantle of daily posts. To win the contest, you must post one new entry each day. Now personally I tend to view staged posts that are written in batch as cheating, to make things easier on the varied schedules this is totally fair game. There are several of you out there that already post regularly… and that is awesome. I totally hope each and every one of you will enter into the challenge, but what I am...
