GUEST BLOGGING FOR DESIGNER MAGAZINE
Since the start of the year, Designer Magazine has made a shift to align it's online content with that of our gigs - hence the featured artists interviews for those who play for us regularly
Now - we're ready for stage number 2 which further bridges the gap and is ALL ABOUT YOU - our wonderful bands and readers!!!
Articles from you about what you love, what you hate, things we might not know about you, tips for bands and more
And a lovely byline with link back to your website or facebook so our readers can find out what the writer's own music sounds like
Literally anything goes pretty much as long as it's not right wing, racist, sexist, homophobic etc
We'd like as many bands / music fans to get involved in writing articles whether you're playing a gig for us or not - but those that play gigs for us it's all useful content to get the word out there. Fresh content is what gets the word out there without spamming people
The carrot - lots and lots of traffic on our website to help publicise you - in fact one of our articles on our website has been read over 580,000 times - wow over half a million
Our readers are really varied bunch and we literally have people coming for interviews with Bill Wyman (Rolling Stones), The Temptations, Gary Numan through to Muse, Scissor Sisters, My Chemical Romance, politics like George Galloway, Tony Benn, Black Panther Party and then pop articles like Jedward or One Direction
As we said anything goes so got a passion, a beef, a love or hate - write an article about it - we'll publish it and you get traffic back to your facebook or website
Have a look on the main website above, but here's a few suggestions for articles
