Calling all writers and budding journalists
2019 will bring in a renewed focus on creating more quality content. We need to strive in getting the front page active, as it will help with our discoverability as well as bringing in and keeping more users and members. In order to do that, we need to create more articles, but keep them on a high standard, or at least as high as we can maintain. I mean we are amateurs (well, except for GregRedd and Entity who are much better than us).
In order to help maintain a steady tick over of content on the front page, the best way is to implement a schedule of articles. These articles are ones that at the very least has to go out on the specified days. And more importantly, anyone should feel free to write any of these as well. They don’t belong to anyone, and if someone isn’t available to write, at the very least someone else can step in and ensure the article is written and goes out.
With our General Meeting last night, we discussed the schedule and came up with the following:
Monday – Gaming news you may have missed (previous week)
Tuesday – Indie Game Spotlight (Indie game people may not know of, bit of a review, or just some info)
Wednesday - The games we’re playing
Thursday – Featured Streamer/youtuber/SA Game dev
Friday – Trailers of the week
If we can try and maintain this schedule and ensure at the very least these articles goes out on the selected days, the site will keep on getting more content. You are however free to write any other article about gaming news or gaming stories or the like as you feel.
