I still find myself sneaking into the Fan Post section of BTSC. Even with such great content on the front page, there are occasionally some solid articles still being written there. In the past, I have made a point to pass on some of those articles to our Senior Editor, and in return he has posted many of those articles on the front page. Not only does it provide exposure for someone interested in writing, but it can provide BTSC with potential future writers.
This particular idea is not my own, but one from Pin Stripe Alley, where the Editor poses a writing subject/question and the members that are interested write about that subject or question in a Fan Post. The winner gets their respective article posted on the front page.
Every Monday for the next six weeks I will provide a subject or question. The article must be submitted by Friday of the same week with plans for it to be published on Sunday. In the heading of the article make sure to add that it is for the Front Page Submission. also attach your own article heading.
Example: Front Page Submission - Pickett not Marino, Steelers refused to let another Pitt Panther QB slip by them
I shouldn’t have to remind everyone, but I will. Make sure all articles submitted follows the SB Nation/Vox/CORAL Guidelines. Those that don’t will not be considered.
Personal Note :
Over the past several weeks I have tried to generate some life back into the Fan Post section by offering up subjects or questions to write about. The Fan Post section will always be something I read because I truly like different perspectives on things and I enjoy the different writing styles. I appreciate the BTSC members that took the time to not only write, but sort of open themselves up to others. Even though some didn’t make the front page, all articles were well presented and I encourage those that participated to continue to write. Thanks again everyone.
This week’s, and final, subject (training camp is right around the corner folks)
How do you see the 2022 Pittsburgh Steelers season playing out?
As always stay safe and GO STEELERS!
