Inspire Me... (Edited 06/15/12 04:57PM by Jess)
As you may already know if you read my posts in Filter, I would love to get some people writing Locker Room blogs. I figured I would set up a place where we can brainstorm ideas on what types of things would make great daily/weekly Locker Room articles. I'm willing to take up some, but it would be awesome if I could have some help from you lovely people! We do have a couple of things brewing and a couple of people have already sent me pms telling me some stuff they have planned but the more the merrier!

Now - I know this is a sports site and sports news and rumors come first and foremost for us sports addicts. However, we have a Locker Room for a reason - we all like to talk about stuff away from the world of sports as well...what better place to do that than on our favorite site?

I would be willing to do a weekly recap of reality shows. Well the ones I watch. I was thinking of calling it Reality Check.

So I'm thinking we've got music, movie releases, television premieres and finales, awards shows (open threads for grammys, emmys, oscars, etc?) and recaps, food, politics (ugh)...anyway these are just some general ideas but if you have anything else or think it might be cool to break down specifics, that would be awesome!

Do we have to get approval from Rogs before we can do a blog? I wouldn't want to post anything that he isn't interested in.

Uh yea that would be a resounding "no". You can write about whatever you want (within the confines of the code of conduct), and if it's good - regardless of whether Rogs/Johnny is interested in it (hey, even if it's about politics, which I hate) - it will be highlighted.

Maybe a bastard child of your featured Qer thread and Jason and Jack's Menage a Tard. A mini 2 hour-ish live interview blog, call it "Inside the Qers studio."

Yea I definitely don't think that the current title would be appropriate for highlighting.

Sid  - once we kick things off, there are some tweaks we will be making to the Locker Room homepage that will make it exactly like the other sports tabs at the top nav - when you click it, it'll be all right there (and then when you click "Fan Articles" under the Locker Room tab too). I know there are a few little glitches that have been reported and are being addressed...once that's done, it'll be easier to find them :)

I wouldn't mind following my Music Storytellers polls with a weekly Music article that touches on what's going on in the industry and any new releases that are coming out the following week/s ???

You could always blog about baiting people into getting kicked off of faniq, while you're still here.

Most of the crap that is or enters my brain makes little or no sense unless you are interested in the inner workings of the human body. I've taken to hijacking others ideas. I would read most anything someone else would take the effort to write though. Kat's idea is great to me since I don't watch many reality shows, I would feel like I do after reading her synopsis of them.
If I like an idea posted, I'll give it a shot

Dude, they probably don't want fishing stories, and Jason is the only one who wants to know what's up with the Latina ladies. The guitar, i know a little about that stuff. I think they want want someone who isn't a knucklehead, I'm totally out by a technicality. It is ok, I will read the blogs other folks write. Especially Kat's, 'cause she knows what is up and is my favorite banker person.

Just thought of another one - book reviews. This is a fun one because we can all (well, we who read a lot) participate in writing these, and you're not locked into a recurring/time thing.

You've reminded me I need to write a review of "Out Of My League" still, even that would probably go into the sports section of the site.
