One of the key aspects of this new site is that it extends the concept of community beyond posts, threads, and forums. We have status updates, we have reactions, we have follower lists, we have much more of a social media model (without the trolling and general awfulness) but at the very core of our concept of community is our user blogs.
Every user, once they register and post two pieces of content (comments, status updates, or threads) “graduate” to the Verified Member group, which opens up the ability to create your own blog.
It only takes a few minutes to set up your blog space and from there, entering a blog is little different than writing a complex forum topic. You can easily drag-and-drop images, embed YouTube videos and tweets, paste tables into the content to support your point… in short, if you want to try your hand at writing long form, you can have a professional-looking blog entry in just a few minutes that will be read by hundreds of Brewers fans around the world.
To encourage users to do this, we’re giving away FREE STUFF. Over the next few weeks, we’ll select some of the best-written and popular blog entries and give away prizes to those who wrote them. Here are examples of two of the prizes:
An autographed Paul Molitor 1979 Topps card
A vintage 1982 “World Champions” Brewers banner, somebody jumped the gun on printing these back in the day
