Thursday 7/7 Update: Thanks for all the emails and interest! It looks like I’ve found a few good bloggers to get things started this season. If you’re still interested feel free to shoot me an email and I’ll hang on to your info should people drop out as things progress.
This season I’m looking to add some other voices to PatsPropaganda. For the past six years I’ve been running the site entirely by myself and now that I made the switch over to my own hosted site from just being a simple Tumblr blog, I have the capability expand things a bit and bring in more people to produce quality Patriots content.
While I can’t say any of these positions would be paid, the site has done plenty of promotions with various companies over the last few seasons that resulted in piles of swag and tickets that I can’t use all by myself. For someone who wants to be on board for the whole season and reliably post content, essentially being my assistant editor, those benefits would often be passed along to you. There are also plenty of media opportunities the site gets invited to that I’m unable to attend but would love to send a representative to, something that would be great experience for someone looking to get into journalism.
If you just want to contribute without being so involved as an editor, I’d be open to that as well, but I can’t promise anything other than exposure. With contributors I’d work with you to find very specific focus areas to track and analyze. Maybe it’s a specific training camp battle in August, or tracking how the Pats use their defensive front seven each week. I’m not looking for someone to come in and write the same “patriots signed so and so today” piece that could be read on any other Pats site. I want microscopic analysis of the team.
I don’t know how it will all fit together just yet, but I know there are plenty of passionate Patriots fans out there who can write and just need an outlet, and that’s the biggest thing I can provide. So shoot me an email (PatsPropaganda @ gmail.com) and tell me what kind of role you’d be interested in, and the kind of storylines that interest you most for the 2016 Pats. Ideally the smaller and more specific the better. Again, the most important thing is knowing the Patriots.
That email will start a dialogue and we’ll start putting the pieces together and hopefully bring aboard some people to help produce outstanding unique Patriots content this coming season.
