Yeah, not many people can say that ;-) Congratulations to the entire team for keeping this website running for almost two and a half years already!
On a side-note, last month we *almost* broke the 1,000,000 pageviews barrier for the first time, and I just noticed we broke the 4,500 RSS subscribers barrier today. We're doing great!
Having said that, the amount of Blender news just keeps increasing and posting only two articles a day just isn't enough to keep up anymore. We need help!
Right now we're disappointing more and more people who send in interesting news, simply because we just can't keep up. I'd love to be able to do 3-5 posts per day (we have enough news for that), but to do that we need more editors!
Do you want to be part of the elite, member of the cool crew, writer of the creme-de-la-creme in the Blender community? (translation: sit behind your computer and punch articles into our site). Then maybe you're the right person to help us out.
- work independently?
- show us three web articles (preferably blog posts) that you wrote previously (provide URLs)?
- write at least one article per week?
And of course: do you love Blender?
If the answers to all that are 'yes!' then get in touch and supply us with a few samples of your work. We'll discuss the candidates with the team and get back to you asap.
PS: yeah, actually this is post #1502 but that didn't work so well for the title..
Congratulations guys! Keep going!!!
Happy 1500 post!
nice job! keep em going boys!
now i'm wondering, what are those 4 draft posts about ;)
"which 3d application we write about?" ... cute :-|
Anyway, cungratz on your first 1500 ;-)
I'm one of those rss subscribers :]

Really ByronK? I can't do anything before coffee (except make coffee).
Hearty congratulations to a web site that has served to unite Blender users around the world, and keep us informed and educated about all things Blender. There is no doubt in my mind that Blender Nation is a boon to Blender, and a part of the formula of its success.
You know what BN could try? A web2.0esque social-voting system for stories. Like reddit or Digg.
Then there would be no need for editors(oops, I just fired a dozen hard working people)
@mpan3: yes, I thought about that. I'm not sure there are any open source packages for that kind of site that are as stable as WordPress though. I found pligg.com, but I've read some not-so-good reviews about it. Do you know of any others?
I am not sure what Ubuntu Brainstorm is based on, but I guess it's an open/free package?
This is a great blog. I love the coverage of Blender and related news. Keep it up...
