    Default NEW Blogs for Blogdump 2013

    Ive decided to dump (lock) the original Blogdump thread and start fresh. The Matrix Reloaded... Being a blogger myself (self-pat on the back), as ridiculous a phrase as that seems, I understand it's not the "easiest" thing to be. Anyone online can start a blog, true. But not everyone can create a blog worth following. Checking through a lot of the blog links on the original thread, one thing became abundantly clear; most people didn't have the stamina to keep it up. The blog feed is a pretty cool aspect on the Chop Cult and we'd love to share your blog assuming you can follow the few simple rules and not make it your personal facebook (like) page where you post every Duran Duran video made because you got drunk and it reminds you of your first ex-girlfriend -or- (what typically happens) you start out strong and (like the Secret Hate songs goes; you came and went...) after a couple posts you give up, lose interest, and move to Cornkobb Nebraska never to "chopper" again.

    Bill's original idea: "I want to add a few more blogs to the BlogDump page to keep it constantly moving.

    A few people have submitted theirs to us in various ways and we picked our favorites and lost some others in the shuffle on accident. Some just didn't fit, some were just too young and had no track record yet. Also, we can't get wordpress blogs to work and even some blogger ones won't RSS feed properly (Sorry Glory Days) so it might just be that if you don't see yours on here.

    Anyway, if you have a blog and would like to submit it, please post it's address here. It's gotta be mostly motorcycle related, you have to update it often and in meaningful ways and write headlines for each post so it doesn't just say "Untitled" on the feed. Other than that there are no rules to it and we won't ask you do anything special except not post one blog after another. Set that shit to publish every day or hours or whatever so it doesn't hog up the whole column..."


    So if you think you've got a blog that's worthy of the Chop Cult BLOGDUMP post your URL link in this thread.

    What are we looking for?
    1.) Current Events / Historical Events
    Does your blog report on local / national moto/chopper/bobber/sickbobber/or violentlyill'n bobber event(s) before and after they happen? Does your blog incorporate a good spread of photographs (eye candy) and information to entice the blog-reader into following your blog? Do you write reviews or stories? How about old bike stuff. Maybe you used to go to all the shows and events in the 70's/80's and all you do is share those old grey beard, black beard, red beard "back in the day" photos, lessons, tricks n' tips. Cool.

    2.) Originality
    Are you stealing pics or taking the time to go out and take your own? Is your shit jacked? Is your shit whack? Is your blog filled with YouTube music links? Are your posts in-line with the Chop Cult focus (Your kids birthday pictures at Knotts Berry Farm might be super cute, but add little the to Chop Cult collective... ain't no body got time for dat)?

    3.) Reliability and History
    Can we count on your blog to post regularly; not once a month, then twice the next, then not again for two more...? Daily posts aren't required, but you should consider a weekly post (or two) to be a standard of expectation. How long have you been blogging? Is your blog brand new (first post; today's date) or do you have a couple strong solid months or years in your archives to back up your game? Effort, you gotta put it in.

    4.) All these suggestions are subjective~!
    Your blog might have something so special and informative, that we'd be willing to "bend" the above suggestions/standards, but what would that be? Show us! If not (and probably not) expect to be held in review...

    Now again, lets review Bills original plan for this thread;
    Your Blogs gotta be...
    * Mostly Motorcycle Related
    * Updated Regularly
    * Posts have to have Titles
    * You can't FLOOD the dump
    (It reads soooo simple, but we'll see... we'll see.)

    My own personal suggestion of a great active blog to add to the Blogdump is; http://www.gophersandcheese.com/ Not to put him on the spot; but his blog has a lot going for it that's interesting, active, original, and motorcycle (choppers included) related reading and visual stimulation.

    After we get a page or two under our belt, we'll get together (the mods) and make some additions. I sincerely hope there's still an active blogger community going on beside what little we have on the Blogdump now (and those who do actively contribute are doing a good job, but there's still more than a few who are MIA).

    These are not mine, but they could be worthwhile to include.

    Excellent call to arms, Allen. I wish you luck, and ask that prospects give your plea the weight it deserves.
