Looking for a game columnist?I'm not sure how many folks will see this but I'm going to put it out there as part of my New Years resolution: I am looking for a new home for my game writing. My efforts to date in my other columns are not generating enough income to justify the effort.
However, I'm not willing to abandon writing a column entirely. I enjoy having a platform for gaming advocacy. It has been instrumental in ensuring my voice is heard, enough that io9 has used my column as a source. In short, there are much more popular platforms that get a lot more traffic for a lot less effort. I don't mind working hard, but it's becoming clear that I'm working harder than a lot of other folks for a lot less return.
So this is my official announcement that I am looking for a new home for my column. My requirements:
- It's about gaming. Not just video games, which is a very crowded market, but inclusive of tabletop, LARPs, and other forms of gaming.
- It must pay with a rate that is clearly stated up front (not "pay in the future," or "when the site becomes viable")
- I determine the content. I don't mind some guidelines on the topic, but I define role-playing very broadly.
Happy New Year!
