Stack Exchange runs blog services for some sites upon request on their blog site, Blog Overflow. Stack Exchange has a blog post dedicated to what they're looking for in a blog, and I think we meet and exceed it on all counts. We have people with fascinating ideas and experience, and who write rather well. We even have a few bloggers on-site who are well-known.
Should we ask for one?
Role-playing games are a complex and interesting field. I'm sure most of you have heard of the Forge, and many of the experimental games that came from the Forge - that's just one place we have previously discussed RPG theory.
There are hundreds of broad questions that are impossible to reasonably answer on the site, but which would likely be of fascination to our dear and beloved members. I know we have the capacity for content out there - for those of you who've stayed in chat a while, there's very frequently a discussion about RPG theory or some other RPG-related topic.
In short, I believe we have the capacity to generate interesting content. In order to answer whether we should have a blog:
- Who would be willing to contribute?
- Should the scope of the blog be limited from "RPG-related topics"?
- How often should posts be released?
