40kings Blog Network
The 40kings Network is a blognet that aims to bring together dedicated writers and artists around the game Warhammer 40k and Games Workshop products in general. Find out more below. Join now!
How will the blognet be working and why should you join in?
On the frontpage of 40kings, the most recent articles of the members of the blognet will be displayed, containing the title of your blog, the title of your article and an excerpt of your post, just as you would expect from a network. You can take a look at it now to the left of your screen. Scroll down a bit and you might see the first posts being displayed. I have added a couple of blogs to give you a feel about how it works.
The goal of the network is fairly straightforward:
Give readers easy access to interesting articles about their beloved hobby on the one hand and help cool blogs about Warhammer40k to reach a wider audience on the other hand. You could call it a win-win situation, I guess.
Thus, I encourage every blog that meets our very broad criteria (see below) to join the network and help to further integrate the community. There is so much good content out there, we just don’t know about it yet. Especially here in Germany, but also all over Europe, many people are producing interesting articles about our hobby that only a limited number of people actually take notice of. Let us try and change that together! Bring the stuff you do into the community!
Who can join? We would love every blog to join our network that:
- writes about Warhammer40k or Games Workshop products in general be it with a focus on gaming, painting, modelling…
- posts an article at least once a week on average
- does not in any way provide adult/gore/racism/crap content and/or uses inapropriate language
- writes in German or English
Ok, that sounds easy. How do I join? This is how it works:
- place the network identification link (see below) on your side, preferably so that people can acutally see it…
- then drop us an email via our contact form and tell us some details about your blog
- include your valid RSS/ATOM/XML Feed adress into the email so that we can parse your information
We will then get you into the network on our frontpage for every visitor to see. If you feel like, we will also give you the opportunity to post a little introduction to your blog and your articles here on 40kings. Just add what you feel like our readers should know about you and your blog into the email.
Here is how the network banner looks like (without the white border) once you installed it properly. No worries, it’s easy to do.
This is the code snippet that you need to place into your html, I guess somewhere in the sidebar should be fine. It will work in most text-widgets as well.
<a href="http://www.40kings.de" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/3513/networkrot160.png" alt="40Kings - Royal Gaming"></a>
Once you placed the code on your side and dropped us an email with your details, we are all set and your blog-posts will be displayed here on 40kings.
We are looking forward to you!
