Blog Notes

We'll be honest, not everyone who makes a request will get a blog (we are talking about giving you access to thousands of readers, so we reserve the right to be a little choosy). We prefer bloggers that have some writing ability... we don't expect nobel prize caliber writing, but you should be able to spell check, use punctuation, and have some basic grammar skills.

DVRplayground is a gadgets and technology community, focused on digital video recording and home media, and while we have no problem with some off topic personal posts, you should head to MySpace if you only want to talk about your dog Fluffy or your favorite foods. We expect all blogs to maintain a focus that coincides with the rest of the site.

So, what are you waiting for? Here's your chance to step into the spotlight! Apply for your very own DVRplayground Blog today!
