As an opinion blogger, you can publish your own personal experiences with working in the Nordic games industry, and share these stories with the rest of the community on NordicGameBits.
The best blog posts will always get featured on the frontpage, and if you ever have any questions about how to publish, or if you would like us to proof-read or give you feedback on your post before publishing, you can reach out to our CEO, Sune Thorsen. He’ll be glad to look through you post and help you with anything and everything from shaping and polishing to editing the blog post before publication.
So, what sort of blog posts are we looking for?
First and foremost, we are interested in hearing about your opinions and experiences. There’s is – after all – a reason we call it “Opinion Blogs”. It doesn’t matter which area of the industry you’re working in, as long as you have an interesting story to share – and we’re sure you do.
More specifically, we want the blog posts that you’d be interested in reading yourself. So when you write a blog post, make sure to keep in mind that you speak directly to your fellow Nordic game developers.
The articles found on NordicGameBits have one thing in common: Knowledge sharing. We strive to always focus on finding that one piece of advice or one key experiences that each developer or studio can share with the rest of us. We would like the opinion blogs to in a similar manner contribute to the overall goal of knowledge sharing within the Nordic games industry. So whatever your job or position within the industry is, we’d love to hear about your experiences and opinions.
This might all sound like a lot to keep in mind when writing a blog post. Don’t hold back, though. Just write your heart out, and if you have any concerns, you can always contact Sune Thorsen – also even if you just have an outline or a concept for a blog post.
