Calling All Writers


If you haven't seen any of my posts you're probably not aware of my site so I'll give you a little background info. In 2009 me and a group of online buddies started a very small MMA broadcast at www.joeshowradio.com where whenever we felt like going on air we would discuss MMA between ourselves and anybody that cared to listen could. It was a pretty random show and nothing that I took all that serious because it was just for fun.

Since then I've taken more of a professional approach and put together a decent looking site in my opinion and we now have scheduled shows with routine hosts where we get a good amount of guests to come on. We now have call-in lines (a toll free number), a pretty decent studio setup, and we broadcast on ustream.

Our radio show portion of the site has been my primary focus and probably always will be. The shows are my passion and I take a good bit of pride in them since I'm basically doing this from no broadcasting background whatsoever and I think the product that deliver is pretty decent.

Because I want the site to suceed I would really like to get more content in terms of articles to keep the site more up to date. Since the site isn't my primary job I simply don't have the time to write as much as I would like to. In order to fix this at times I make posts on forums attempting to find guys that want to try to dabble in writing but the response has been pretty low and when I do get people on board over time they seem to go away. It has gotten to the point now that I only only have one guy left that submits articles to me to post.

If anyone has any desire in being featured on the front page of the site feel free to email me at:

brad@joeshowradio.com

If you currently are running you're own blog I have no problem with linking to your blog and you can submit the same pieces that you post on your own blog to me. It doesn't have to be original content only for www.joeshowradio.com. I refuse to be like many other small blogs and simply repost others content without permission and it seems like a pretty lame way to go about things.

I'll tell you in advance that this isn't a paying gig. While I've had google ads on the site for about a year I've literally recieved no money from google. The traffic that we pull in simply isn't big enough to make any revenue from ads. I look at ads as more of a filler than anything else.

This is a great opportunity to anyone that wants to try out writing. I don't require any background in writing, just simply a desire to write well.

The type of stuff I'm looking for is mainly editorials. I'm not really concerned with breaking any news or anything like that. Opinion pieces are the types of pieces that I enjoy reading here on bloodyelbow and those are also what I like writing when I do.
