New Authors

Ok, time for some more user input on this thing. It took a while but things are set up and running nicely now so we thought it was about time we put out a call for some more authors. Now you know the old saying too many cooks spoil the broth, well too many authors spoil the blog.... So we will only be taking one or two new authors right now but we might take some more a little later on (so please don’t be mad/upset if we don’t take you as an author this time). To make this as fair as can be and make this blog as good as can be we would like anyone who wants to be an author to send in a sample post. Please read the following and then send your posts to

Who can write one?
Anyone who is a regular, part time user or even occasional drop in to the Hall.

What to write about
You can write about whatever you want as long as it has something to do with the Hall of Odin. This is a blog for the HoO not for Kongregate in general so make sure it’s relevant to the HoO. You can write about something funny you saw in chat, start a competition, make up a fairy story about some of the regulars in the hall, whatever you want really! You can add in pictures if you want, either of screen shots from chat or any other pictures that are relevant.

Introduce yourself at the start of the post as if you are accepted the post you submit now will be your first post on the blog. Say your name and a little about who you are for those who may not know you and put your username at the bottom of the post also.

What not to write about
The same rules apply here as in the Hall, no profanity, no explicit writing or pictures, no abuse towards other users etc. Please also try and keep things general, the odd in-joke here and there is fine but this is a blog for ALL the users who frequent the Hall so make sure the post is interesting to everyone.

What does being an author on this blog entail?
There are no serious commitments, if you become an author we would like you to try and submit a new post at least once a month but beyond that it’s up to you how often you post. If you want to change your mind for any reason – you have started hanging out in a different room, you don’t have time for this or you just don’t want to do it anymore then no worries, let us know and we will take you off the author list. Be aware though, if you become an author and post something which contains profanity, abuse, inappropriate images or language or something generally not nice then we will remove the post and remove you from the author list. If you are ever unsure you can always run a post by one of us first.

We will leave this open for about a fortnight to give everyone time to see this post and to have time to write one of their own. We want good writers who will spend enough time in the Hall to have things to write about on a regular basis. Like I said, we are only looking for one or maybe two more authors right now so please don’t be offended if we don’t take you on as one.

Much love and hugs
The HoO bloggers :)

I can write about flash and how flash games are made. Would that be off the topic you are looking for?

Look forward to seeing something from Kikkerman, I'm pretty sure I could think of something very useful for people who are new or wanting to excel there respect on Kong.
