Greetings all!

The WDG is preparing to launch the new which will become a prominent and actively updated part of The new blog will be extensively hyperlinked from the rest of the site, and we'll be encouraging visitors to sign up for subscriptions and RSS feeds to keep up to date with what all is going on in the Web Authoring community.

A few samples of things you'll find on
  • Summaries and links to high quality Web reference articles from around the Net.
  • Helpful Web authoring related tools and tips.
  • Original content including tutorials, guides and cheat sheets.
We are looking for passionate members of our community who are interested in contributing as an author on the Blog. If you are interested please let me know as soon as possible. Some things we're looking for in potential contributors:
  • Professionalism
  • Integrity
  • Excellent written communication skills
  • A demonstrated willingness to help others
Once we've chosen the team I'll be establishing a permissions based forum which will only be accessible by the HTMLHelp Bloggers and we will work on the ground rules, details and coordination involved in launching the blog.

I would anticipate that our new blog launch will experience roughly the same rate of growth - if not more - that we experienced with the launch of the new forums several months ago. Needless to say, this is an extremely rare opportunity to be considered for a contributing position that could potentially result in a high level of exposure in the Web authoring community.

If you are interested in applying for one of these volunteer positions here is what you need to do:
  • You'll need to have full identity disclosure. Please do not apply if you are unwilling to be identified. We feel it is necessary for subscribers to get to know content authors in order to build trust.
  • Provide a link(s) to your personal Web site or blog. We will be making sure that it is generally appropriate for all ages.
  • Provide a brief summary regarding your interest and qualifications. (A CV/Resume or other background document would be nice.)
  • Be willing to contribute at least a couple of hours a week to providing content for the Blog.
Finally, if you'd like to preview the format for the new Blog, you can find it at It is only a skeleton at the moment, but you will get the idea of how it's going to look and function as it gets populated. Feel free to register, make test comments, and provide suggestions. Unfortunately the Blog requires a separate user registration from the forums, but the good news is that no one actually needs to register unless they intend to post.

You can either send me a PM through the forums, use the new Contact form on the Blog, or send an e-mail to john@ you know the domain
