    I'll get to the point, I'm starting a website which will obviously be small at first, (but if I can get a fair few good writers together, I will continue to help it grow and fund it), basically about music. Reviews, opinions, gigs etc. It will be a wordpress blog updated daily.

    I need people who are genuinely interested in music to write for the site. Doesn't matter what type of music you're into, techno, hip-hop, rock, doesn't matter. I plan on having sections for each of these and if your content is good, or gets a good response as the site grows, you will be a featured editor for you're section. E.G. if you go to a gig, take a few photos of the act playing live when you're there (not loads, not a photography site) and then write abit about how you found it, that's one post done.

    At first, writing isn't going to be paid, but as the site grows and if you help with advertising it, you will definately get a share of revenue, but please be aware as I am setting the site up now and am getting a few members together for it, it will take a while to get any money at all.

    If you're interested quote and reply or PM, I am happy to discuss the site further and if anyone is interested in becoming an admin aswell you will firstly have to split the hosting costs (this can be ignored if you heavily promote the site or bring traffic to it), but you will have a higher share of the revenue later on. Any ideas are also welcome.

    Thanks

    Well I have temporary free test hosting where I will test out the layout of the site and how posts will look so we can get an official format for posts. Below are a few templates I am looking at using for the site, please give your opinion on them, obviously they will be the base and I will change a few things on them to suit the site and make them more unique. Don't worry about the money I will pay for the theme, if you have your own ideas of a certain wordpress theme you feel may be suitable, then by all means PM me the link. Also as the site is getting closer to being set up, I think it is best if I could get some articles/posts asap, so if you have written any posts/articles about songs/albums/festivals/gigs then PM them me or send them as an attachment.

    Thanks

    Sorry site is taking a while, but I've been busy. If you all could PM a few articles you have written, or write a few and PM me with them it would be a great help. Also still looking for writers/designers/hosters so if you're interested PM me, I want to get this up and running this month.

    Thanks
