Hi all,

Just a quick request to our readership to ask for people who would like to try their hands at writing for the v2Journal.

The v2Journal is now getting over 100k of hits per month and the 4 regular podcasts have been a great help with respect to the sites growth.

However, this has had an impact on the amount of time that the people who run the podcasts have to write articles.

Therefore, if any of you run your own blog, or would just like somewhere for your articles to feature, then please let me know.

It can be for any sport that you like.

Just get in touch and get writing.

Thanks

A

Hi Adam,

More than happy to write a few pieces on boxing/football - I'm sure there are a few others from the boxing board too. Have a look at some of my articles I've written (last one was featuring Sergio Martinez) see if you like it.

Great - anyone who is interested should write their articles and PM them to either myself, hampo, Colan or Pete C (Kiwireddevil)

We will then have a quick scan over and give you some feedback (if needed).

Article length is up to you - as long as the article is interesting it can be a long one or short one. Just think about what you want to write about and do it!

Everyone is welcome to contribute - just make sure to try and spell/ sense check it before submission

I was thinking of starting a blog which is my opinions of that weeks football and other sports as I'm always keen to share my opinion. Someone from the euro division league for Girly bickering suggested something from the world of pretend management, but maybe that's a step too far!!!

Will see how I get on and send them your way if I am happy

If you're serious about writing something I wouldn't mind proof-reading/editing it for you.

I wouldn't mind doing a blog on football. Maybe the Championship?

Not sure, what kind of blogs you're looking for though?

Might be interested to contribute at some point (football/tennis) although not in a rush to right anything right now. But feel free to remind me later if you get a barren patch.

I have just read the Fowler/Owen article. That is a very high standard.

I would be up for this Adam, as I think we have talked slightly about in the past.

Wrestling, football or boxing would suit me down to the ground in terms of writing articles and the such.

Will PM you over the weekend mate

If anyone wants to contribute, the articles can be opinion pieces, reviews or historical pieces like Rowleys fantastic boxing pieces.

No length restrictions or minimum - the only thing that you need to consider is "would someone want to read this?" If the answer is yes, thats what we want.

If he is happy for me to do so, I am more than happy to put it up.

I have asked in golf before but no one offered to write anything - would be delighted to put it on v2

Not completely true - ages ago I said it could go anywhere on the site, but that I would write it for the Golf Board and its readership.
Its genesis was to write about European golfers' experiences in the States, but has become a PGA Tour blog, though still with a European perspective. Been there on 606 and v2 now for six years, 300+ efforts of weekly drivel.

Would you be happy for it to go on the journal? If so, do you want to use your real name or Kwini?

Must admit, I never look at the journal but, sure, put it anywhere but keep it on the golf board too as that is where readers expect to find it. "kwini" is fine.

Feel free to write something and put it forward for going up on the journal but please don't make it 10,000 words on why the Seahawks are going to win the Super Bowl 10 years in a row.

I have a blog about tennis called "The Tennis Column" on blogspot - I can't post the link because I'm a new member, but if you google "the tennis column" mine is the one that comes up on blogspot.

I don't post every day, but I seem to have a decent following. Let me know what you need from me if you're interested.
