I gave this proposal consideration as a place to crosspost articles I write about Second Life, until I reached your 'right to edit' and statement that this must be original content. This puts the proposal in an entirely different light.  If you wish to share your credentials as an editor with me, I'd consider writing for you.  My usual rate per article would apply, of course.

Free homesteads for regular contributors of consistenly high quality original content?  Just throwing it out there.

As a very small blogging fish in a very big blogging pond, I might have been tempted to submit a post. But reading through what exactly would be in it for me?

As far as I can see..no editorial control on the final article..original content that couldn't be posted to my own blog..a brief bio that may or may not generate new readers..no mention of just how often these guest posts would be published (once a week? once a month? once in a blue moon?)..no mention on the chances of anything I write even being accepted (on the roll of the dice, on the spin of the bottle, on Rodvik picking a name out of a hat?)..and no mention of any financial gain in Lindens for my time and effort.

Sorry guys, at the moment there is just not enough to tempt me. I'll pass.

Surely the contributions were approved long before this blog post soliciting them.

Bets now being taken on whether the first post will be the one about finding true love with the aid of a vampire HUD, or the one enumerating benefits of breedables in senior homes.

Are you a passionate Second Life resident who loves to write about your Second Life experience?

I am! I used to write columns regularly for the Metaverse Messenger, have my own SL blog (though I've been a bit lax lately, to be honest), and all that.  

So... what's your pay scale? 'cuz while I may be passionate, it would seem kinda foolish to work for free. Especially in this economy. I mean, when Hamlet blogged for ya, I'm sure he got paid.
