The Newbie Blogger Initiative is back… with a revenge! Well, ok, not with a revenge but it is definitely back!
“What is the Newbie Blogger Initiative?” you may ask. Good question!
The Newbie Blogger Initiative (NBI for short) is basically a one-month event where anybody who is interested in creating a gaming blog is encouraged to just do so. They won’t have to do it completely alone, having to learn everything the hard way though. Veteran bloggers will be participating too, giving advice, encouraging words and serving as a starting audience too. That is basically the gist of it.
If you are interested, head to their forums, register there and start posting to join the fun. 🙂
This year there are also a few additions compared to the previous year:
- There is a NBI site that will serve as an archive to all the posts written by veterans to help newbies as well as a directory of all blogs participating.
- There will be at least 3 events that participating bloggers will be encouraged to participate. The details are still being worked out but there are already a few ideas in their forums.
- Mentoring. This is where one of the veteran bloggers take on a coaching role for a newbie. This is, of course, optional for both parts. For those interested on this it will also be setup in a way that respect each other’s time constraints and other commitments.
The NBI will start on October 1st and will be going until the end of that month. I believe the forums and the site however will stay all year around though.
Hm. I believe that is all the most relevant information about it.
I will be participating again this year as a sponsor. I hope to see new faces there again and finding more good blogs to read and share. Hope to see you there too! 🙂
