Having an excellent experience syndicating Ripard Teg with Mintchip, Endie and Easley Thames before him, we have decided to open our syndicated offering to all writers available. Having around 100,000 unique readers every month has permitted Eve News24 to stay on top as the most important Eve News website, but make no mistake, this is no chest-beating material as running this monster takes time and effort, both of which would be worthless if it wasn’t by our reader’s loyalty and the thriving community we have brought together.
Open Call for Bloggers and the ever evolving nature of Eve News24.
When Czech and I first started Eve News24, we took websites like the Wired, Gizmodo, Engadget and the Huffington Post as prime examples of what a crowd sourced media outlet could grow to be. More than a year after we set this goal, we have maintained our effort to bring you the latest news within EVE Online and the most relevant opinion articles to allow our readers to get a sense of what’s going on. We want to take this one step further.
Eve News24 opens its door to all EVE Online bloggers, our standards are pretty simple: an usual EN24 article contains at least Five-Hundred (500) words on average and it has to be of a relevant nature to our readers, be funny, easy to read and if needed it should point sources. Most of our readers do not care on the daily coming and goings of bloggers, what they do care about is perspective, reason and food for thought, if you would like to grow big within Eve News24 syndications, the more interesting the piece you write, the greater following you will get.
Syndication also means that if you decide to stop publishing on Eve News24 and have all the articles taken down, that’s no problem as you keep being the sole owner of your syndicated content.
What are we offering back?
We are offering two (2) things, exposure and ISK. Regarding exposure we guarantee your content to be displayed on Eve News24 to our 100,000 readers, this added to your ability to engage readership loyalty will allow you to create a proper following, we are also creating a newsletter with topic-ideas which writers. An obligatory introduction will accompany every article with a link to your blog and your signature will be linked to your twitter account.
Incidentally, you will see an increase in traffic as we don’t syndicate all articles yet its left to our readers to read all the views and pieces you keep on your blog.
ISK wise, we are offering 75mil for every 500+ word article we syndicate, keep in mind that five-hundred word is an average figure and we won’t be nazis enforcing it.
The content of your blog must be relevant to a good chunk of the Eve Online players, in Eve News24 we follow the premise of “entertaining and informing” at the same time, develop your own writing style and get some funny jokes on it if you feel like.
We won’t syndicate stories which attack or defame Eve News24 or any of their authors, although doing this won’t disqualify you from getting others stories in.
Always base your intel on verifiable facts, we use eve-kill and Dotlan for most of our research, we recommend citing sources at least once in your articles.
You will be required to create an Eve News24 author account, we’ll take care of the formatting.
