Desperately Seeking… CorrespondentsPosted by rtmsf on August 13th, 2008
Ed. Note – this is a sticky. The new posts are immediately below this one.
Wanted: great writers or bloggers who are intimately knowledgeable with the hoops ins and outs of a conference of their choice.
Even Dick is On Board With RTC
Yes, we at RTC are looking to expand our breadth and reach. With the season fast approaching (only 58 days until Midnight Madness), we are looking to broaden our exposure for the 2008-09 season by facilitating a mutually beneficial relationship with a conference correspondent from each of the 31 D1 leagues (we’d even consider an Independent correspondent if one exists…).
If you already have a conference blog, great! We’ll cross-post content that you may have already been doing anyway (in some capacity). If you’re simply an interested writer looking to create a name for yourself as an expert in a conference, also great! We’re interested in everyone.
Depending on the conference the correspondent is covering, we envision a maximum of 2 posts/week that will summarize for our readers what they may have missed while they were keeping an eye on the team(s) or conference(s) they like best. For the little guys, this is an opportunity to sell the readership of a national blog of the merits of your league and the teams/players to watch throughout the season. For the money leagues, this is a chance to focus on details that only conference fans are knowledgeable about (i.e., rumors about playing time, local rivalry trash-talk, etc.).
If you know of someone who would make a great conference correspondent, send us his name/blog/contact info. at rushthecourtATyahooDOTcom or leave the information in the comment section below. If you are someone with those characteristics, do likewise.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Update (9/11/08) : the revised list of needed conferences is here.
