View Full Version : Blog and roleplay, need advice.

09-18-2009, 01:46 AM
I was thinking of using my.ddo's character page to start a roleplay blog. But i'm new at this and was looking for tips for this perticular media format. For example, should i speak in first or third person? How do i keep the blog/story consistent?

I don't know where to start, and need a push to learn the "do and not do" about writing that kind of stuff on a game blog like this.

And english is my second language but i can come up with something decent if i apply myself. :)

So, any good tips around here?

I've seen some well-done roleplay blogs on LoTRO written as if it's a series of letters sent back home. One particular blogger even "enclosed" sketches of his adventures (he sketched pictures IRL and added them to his posts).

Some are written as the character's journals/diaries too.

You can write roleplay blogs in any style though, but one thing I would suggest is to try to add screenshots to keep your blog visually appealing and not just a wall of text. :)

Thanks, i'll go check out the LoTRO blogs.

I though of adding screens because my story's will be short to read. :)
