Konnichiwa, Mikuites! Time is a precious thing –– so is sleep, as I found out after reading all the comments from my “Sleepiness” post. Because writing is such a spontaneous thing, there are many times when I drop what I am doing or put things to the side in order to write my latest blog post. As TRazor suggested, I should probably get some outside help in order to help keep my sanity. xD
Therefore, I am opening the floodgates, and you guys get to be in on it!
Obviously, allowing guest bloggers is something I’ve never done before, so I hope things go smoothly. In order to give everyone an opportunity, I will be allowing one guest blogger a week on a first-come-first-serve basis (post in the comments if you’re interested).
I think in order to make you a contributor on this blog, all I need is your e-mail which is automatically included when you post a comment, assuming you’re logged in to WordPress. Even if you don’t have a WordPress blog, I can still invite you as long as you include your e-mail in the comment field below. Once you become a contributor, to start writing I believe all you have to do is click “My Blogs” under the “Dashboard”, and then “Mind of Miku”!
The only rule I have is to limit your post to one or two pictures (remember, this is about writing, not posting a wall of pics). Other than that, feel free to go wild. I’ve seen other anime bloggers write about yaoi and sex positions; I have no problem with that, as long as it’s not something derogatory (cursing is fine) or contains nudity (shadows are fine). You can write as little or as much as you want. Just keep it anime related to go with the theme of this blog, and preferably in the same format as my posts — picture at the top, followed by the
<!--more--> tag on the next line, then your text below that — to keep the front page looking clean. XD I will also put [Guest Blogger] at the end of the title of your post to make it stand out and so people will know I’m not the author — does this sound okay or should I leave it out?
You do not have to write on the day it is due. In fact, I prefer if you finish earlier in case any problems arise. Also, keep in mind that while the idea of me forming a team is still up in the air, this is not a contest. Instead, this is a way for you to gain more exposure, and you’re welcome to link back to your own blog at the top or bottom of your post (or both!). You may even want to say a bit about yourself and/or your blog. ^^
Insert shameless plug here: because I assume most of you reading this are bloggers, also tell me if you would like to exchange links. ^_^ As soon as you add my site, I’ll be sure to add yours!
