Bumped. Get your submissions in by tonight if you're interested! --Kurt
Links posts are valuable. They're also kind of time consuming to do right. I used to do them a few times a week but more and more time that I could spend doing a better job in other areas of the blog was being taken up. So I just kind of stopped doing links posts altogether. Fortunately we've got some people doing FanShots on a regular basis sharing links. I'd really love to see that expanded into full posts again: I just don't want to do them myself!
If you're the kind of person who likes to read a bunch of stories and share with others, and who can commit to doing a few a week, we'd really like to have you as a front-page author. It is volunteer work, but at least you're going to have access to more eyeballs than you would at almost any other location, Tigers-wise. And those eyeballs range from fans to national media to front office and players. It's a good way to make a name for yourself and hopefully open up some doors down the road. It's a cool gig.
If you're interested, I'd like you to send a sample post to BYBTigers@gmail.com. What I'm looking for is 2-fold: A writer who fits into the tone of posts we already do here while maintaining an individual voice, and 2) Someone who finds links off the beaten path. Anyone can round up what the Freep, News, MLB.com and MLive are doing. I'd like to find someone who travels different paths who can bring what they find interesting back to the rest of us.
Serious inquiries only, please. If this can't be done right and on a predictable schedule, it's better not to do it at all.
If you have any questions, fire them at me in this post or to the e-mail address above.
