Of course you do! Everyone does and what better place than on the blog of your favourite online community?

I've been given the responsibility of revitalizing the blog and I need your help. As such, I'm opening up the floor to volunteers. I need members for both a planned editorial team and general contributors. Editors will be responsible for "co-running" the blog by publishing and checking content and contributors will be responsible for writing exciting and engaging content for the community (editors can of course write content as well). Although editors will be expected to participate in the blog on a regular basis as part of their duties, contributors are free to participate at their own leisure (although we certainly hope you contribute a lot of exciting content).

Whereas the editorial team will be chosen by the administrative staff (at least initially), everyone is invited to join the blog as a contributor. If this is something that interests you, don't hesitate to volunteer or ask questions.

The revitalization is in its formative stages so expect more information to come. In the mean time, if you're interested in writing something, feel free to fill out the form linked to below.

Mac-Forums Blog Application form.

Mac-Forums Blog Guidelines.

UPDATE (Mar 22, 2012): The "application" form is up. If you're interested, fill it out and we'll get back to you.

UPDATE (Mar 24, 2012): The Blog Guidelines are up. Take a look if you're interested or already involved but unfamiliar with them.

Although the editorial team will be by appointment, I will definitely put your name down as interested. Thanks for volunteering!

Your application has been received. As of right now however, we've got a fairly sizeable and dedicated team. That said, I'll keep your interest in mind for the future.
