Let's get blogging!

[ATTACH=CONFIG]4687[/ATTACH]

Welcome to the blogs! Well, I'm sure most of you know about them by now but welcome to a little lesson on blogging anyway :) We wanted to open this up to give people a place to blog about Pocket Legends or Star Legends. Things that just aren't really forum threads. I've seen a few blog posts on here that don't really fit the definition of "blog post" so I'm writing this to hopefully give you some inspiration to post!

Lets start by trying to define what a blog is (I'm going to go ahead and just steal this from Wikipedia):
[LIST][*]Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries.[/LIST]

That second part might be even more helpful than the first. The idea is that a blog is a place for you to expand on your thoughts and write things that are more like articles than just a forum thread. For example, say you were looking for help on creating a new username. Instead of making a post here that says "What should my forum username be?" you could write a blog post called "The 5 greatest usernames of all time." You'd pick 5 usernames you love, write about them, and then end the post by saying "What are YOUR favorite usernames?"

Bingo bango bango... you've got a blog post!

The blog is also a great place to tell stories. [URL="http://www.spacetimestudios.com/member.php?58210-Garvhoz"]Garvhoz[/URL] has been using the blogs to write an excellent series of fiction stories. You could also use it to write about your adventures in Pocket Legends or Star Legends - "How I finally defeated the X boss" or "Today I helped a new player."

Let me know in the comments if you have any questions about blogging! There are so many great writers in the STS communities and it would be wonderful to hear from more of you.

    The best thing about reading others writing specifically tailored for others (IE blogs) is that it gives you inspiration on what to talk/rant about yourself!
    I'll take a shot at your username idea, with my own angle of course.

    The real issue is getting your words/rants seen. Most people dont actually want to read about some random persons experience with xxxxmap... the sad truth is that what people like most of all is to be given license to say their OWN opinion, and get seen themselves. Hence the popularity of forum games, were most players barely read the first 4 posts, then dive in with their own witty comment, because everyone is the star of their own little comedy.
    How do you work around this? incorporate your viewers into the thread/blog! Ask for their opinions on subjects, and keep all explanation not pertaining to them simple and to the point. It is rude to type in TL;DR, but the truth is that that happens all the time. The best way to make a interesting blog... is to tailor it to the audience.

    In fact, the first part I wrote above does just that. I took something YOU wrote, and promised to give you original feedback on it. Bet you got just a little bit interested, right?

    ...of course, having a giant, great resolution photo of a panda is probably the best way to grab viewers, and skip the whole psychology issue. xD

    @Arterra You are absolutely right about that! Would love to see the username post. I had written that because someone earlier had posted "Help me find a new username" which is not really a blog post... but, in a way, it totally could be! And yeah, the best blog posts are ones that make people actively want to contribute.

    @WizardStarr Haha, you rock dude! Glad you enjoyed the panda ;)

    if you use a PC browser (not sure bout mobile browsers but definitly not mobile app) under your profile picture and stats,there should be a button that says start a blog
  11. OvigorothO's Avatar
    scratch the part about "definitly not mobile app" because i was wrong. first open the pop up menu click forums,game category,sub category, write your title and description of post then at the bottom click blog as your section
