Have you got what it takes? 6 spots available on the EVE Blog Pack!


Having gone through the list of members of the EVE Blog Pack, I have removed 4 more blogs from the Pack. I'm trying to make sure that all Pack members are focused on EVE and post regularly. Once a blog hits the "no post in a month", I consider that the blogger in question is no longer active. So I remove them. I think that that's fair, and gives the Pack members plenty of time to post.

So, we've got 6 spots available as of today! That's quite a lot of new potential members, and that gets my EVE Online blogger's juices flowing! The EVE Mojo is strong with these bloggers. Since I first mentioned the fact we'd take some new members (back in November), many bloggers came forward. Because of my busy schedule over the past weeks, the window of opportunity for applications was greatly extended. As such, as of today here is the list of bloggers that are to be considered:
As well as,

Wow, that's 13 - correction, 15 -EVE bloggers vying for the coveted 6 spots!! And quite a list of EVE capsuleer if you ask me! The vote is open only to current EVE Blog Pack Members. Please email me at CrazyKinux[at]gmail.com with your choices (6 each).

Good luck to all of you!

Thank you for this service!

A suggestion: if all the members of the EVE blog pack would turn their RSS feeds to full instead of abridged (first couple of hundred chars only), the pack would be much easier to read..

Not surprised I'm not on the list.

I think YoMma should get a spot, considering the work he's doing for the community.

I definitely think that Yomma deserves a spot for all the work he's doing with the fiction pack; Kane's piracy tales are what startd me down this road so I'd love to see him included; and I feel like Nursultan's sort of my protege so it would be great to see him included too.

As for the other three spots, I have no idea but I've subscribed to them all and will be having a read regardless of whether or not they make it.

Here's hoping I make it. Good selection regardless.

You would have done, wouldn't you?

@Yanna who is not using full excerpts? Does anyone know of a tool that will tell you the number of readers that look at a particular link? I have Java Script on my site to tell me who comes there but I'd like to know how many read the actual feed.....

Who did the pack lose? It would be nice to know so I can subscribe manually to those I'm interested in...

Beowolf Schaefer said...

I'm already rallying the denizens to vote for me!

Best of luck to the other bloggers.

Yanna Karr said...

@Manassi: You for one :) Plus The wandering druid blog. The others in my cache for the last few days are full feeds.

Hehe the Blog Pack changes always seem to come around when I'm not able to post as much as normal.

I'm hoping I get in anyway (obviously haha), and good luck to all the other potential bloggers!
Being a member of the blog pack when it was still a baby, I'd love to see how it'll affect my viewership rates compared to how it used to.

I know it's probably too early to be considered amongst those considered for inclusion in this round of blog additions, but finding this over the holidays inspired me to start my own blog "Tales of a Third Rate Trit Trader" at azizaminz.wordpress.com

I don't expect to be added to this list of potential additions yet, as I've only started and only a weeks worth of posts, but any feedback is greatly appreciated.

/me rolls eyes at Shae. Shae, you don't have to accept a spot if you are offered one, but your excellent writing and exclusive focus on New Eden deserve recognition. :) So sue me.

Manasi said...

@Yanna Karr, really? hmm I thought that had been fixed, thanks for the note I will look into that...I appreciate the info!
