Bleed blue and white? Want everyone to know?

 

The major difference between fan driven content and media driven content is that you don't need a staff of writers to put out good content, you can do it with a small group of passionate fans. Over the past three year Bull Run has carved out a nice little niche for itself in the UB Nation ecosystem.

A lot of this is due to the awesome opportunity afforded by the sites inclusion in the SBNation catalog of blogs. The technical aspect of the platform, the media exposure, and the support and insights provided by more than 100 other College blogs have helped grow this site from a basement hobby to a living room couch hobby. Less creepy, more respectable (slightly), and done in full view of my wife and kids.

But I am hitting a wall on content volume. I am striving to put out five meaningful pieces per week. With a baby on the way that's going to be pushing it. During football season it makes covering hoops difficult and it makes any original content about things like Hockey, Wrestling, and Swimming nearly impossible.

If you want to see the difference that a small group of fans can make check out Hustle Belt.  Matt Sussman, the manager over there, has added a few writers and the content of his site is far more robust even though most of the contributors really only put out a few pieces a week.

So consider this an open call to anyone interested in dipping their toes into the blogging world. Whether you would like to cover UB Sports that are note getting their due (softball, hockey, wrestling, ...) or you want to vent about Football or Basketball you would still be doing me, and UB Nation, a huge service.

If you're interested please drop me an email at ubbullrun@gmail.com or don't bother asking and just put out a great fan shot. There is no minimum on content, if you want to post once a month, once a day, or once in a blue moon its all good.
