Evening,

As we look to 'expand' what you can do on the forum, we are going to be purchasing a 'blog' add-on in the next couple of days.

Review/ Purchase Link - https://xenforo.com/community/resources/better-blogs.1055/
You can see the 'demo' here > http://xfaddons.com/index.php?xfa-blog-home/

It looks very plain there but you get the general idea that people will be able to blog and then present it on the forum. We've been thinking to offer this for 'free' to people that would be willing to write match reports/reviews on their specific team, because that can help us promote the website on social media and attract the attention of others.

However, this will also be part of one of the 'upgrade packages' so that people can use it as a forum perk (within reason of course)..

Just like to gauge some opinions on the idea and whether people are liable to be interested in both aspects of what the blog does/can do...

We could do an alternative Daily Mail perhaps.
Suggestions for first articles:
  • When Man Utd's academy squad holidayed in Menorca - the things they saw
  • Frank Lampard takes selfie with tall man at hotel in Kettering
  • Real Madrid sponsors Audi consider giving Audi sports car to all players who don't already own an Audi A1, Audi A2, Audi A3, Audi A4 (including Audi S4 and RS4), Audi A5, Audi A6, Audi R8, Audi Q5 or Audi Q7 but not the Audi A7 because even Audi and Audi engineers think the Audi A7 is crap and not really fit to wear the Audi badge. (With pictures. Of Audis)
  • Interesting anagrams of the words Manchester and City
  • PL Penis of the Year awards, hosted by Ant and Dec
  • Simon Mignolet's Gardens of the NorthWest
  • When Man City were sponsored by a typewriter company and how this started my collection of typewriter ribbons (guest edit by James Milner)
  • The Chelsea Official Supporters Guide to All Seven British Professional Football Clubs
  • The Norwegian Walsall Supporter who Named His Daughter "Whothefuckinghellareyou" after a Chant He Heard Every Time He Went to a Match
  • Lawncare in South Yorkshire by Rotherham's groundsman
  • The Day My Career Almost Ended (guest edit by by BAFTA and Oscar nominee Adryan)
  • "82 FEET OF SNOW AND MINUS 750 DEGREES CENTIGRADE IN UTTOXETER BY THE WEEKEND!!!!" (op-ed by Nathan Rao of the Daily Express)

This won't be come quite as soon as we thought as all avenues to last nights issues need to be thoroughly checked. Hopefully by the end of the month, perhaps a couple of weeks.

I'd rather be able to run a week of full days on the site than just 10 hours in a day until kaput for 3 hours Becuase it's shit for the user.
