After Zod made the thread this morning about having Huddlers contribute to the site, a lot of you revealed you have writing experience. Well, imagine this... Zod's photo skills and connections, writing from Huddlers, my design skills, and everything that IS The Huddle all rolled into a 50 page Monthly magazine!!!
Me and Mrs. M3OW have been brainstorming all day, and I even threw together a sample cover and table of contents. Take a look...
Here is a break down of some of the sections we came up with:
Meet The Huddle - Would have a introduction to a Huddler/Fan, a section for opinions, and a Q&A.
Kitten of the Month - A two page spread with a new Kitten each month. Pictures, profile, and more.
Under the Helmet - This is where Zod will have to pull some strings and try to get a player interview.
On The Field - This is the section where we would have detailed analysis about the team (X's & O's) and whatnot.
The Growl - Panthers news for the month, including roster changes, scores, ect.
The Buzz - Section for all things Charlotte Hornets
Tailgate Tails - Section for recipes, tips and tricks, stories, and maybe even beer reviews for tailgating.
The Lounge - Pretty much a section for the off-topic topics. Anything could got here.
Get Your Paws On - A section for cool stuff, their reviews, where to buy them, and so forth.
It would take some time, effort, and dedication for the people involved. But this could take off. I'm working for a magazine in NC right now and know the ins-and-outs of what it takes to get this off the ground and get it going. And (If memory serves me well) we even have a few salesmen in the Huddle if we ever got to the point we could sale advertisements.
Just a thought. What do you guys think?
There's also a software package called 3D Issue that turns PDFs into electronic magazines that would save the cost of printing, too. I've used it, and it's pretty easy. Just drag and drop once you've put the mag together and saved as a PDF, then do an email blast to get it where you want to send it.
