Another Blogger Announced

I figured IwoCPO should announce this one at A2Y.

Do remember, when the new KK arrives in September, KK members will have the ability to block any KK blog from appearing on the KK Homepage but if you wish, you can still visit the blog directly by going to the homepage of that blog.

More bloggers will be announced in the coming weeks and do remember, if you applied for a blogging position, I highly recommend now is the time to submit a sample of your work at the KK Member Blog.

Gotta love the 2nd paragraph disclaimer for anti-Wings.

I’m much more excited about the ability to remove TPSH from my Kuklas experience.

No kidding - otherwise there would be 200 comments asking why the Wings get 2 blogs.

Why do the Dead Wings get 2 blogs?  tongue rolleye   And I would post in the members blog section but my team is the Kings and nobody has told Dean Lombardi that the offseason is underway.  zipper

This is your site Paul, and you’re allowed to do whatever you want with it.  Having said that, I’m really disappointed you’ve added another Red Wings blog so similar to A2Y (at least in my very limited experience).  While other team blogs associated with this site present original research and analysis, and focus on their own teams rather than on everyone else, A2Y adds nothing to the site that non-Red Wings fans can appreciate.  I think you can do better and I think you should.  I understand you’ve had a longstanding relationship with A2Y and I completely respect that, but at the same time it’s frequently offensive to your broader audience and doesn’t fit at all with everything else that goes on at this site.  On the one hand you want to have some ground rules for a civil hockey discussion, and yet not only do you continue to associate with A2Y you’ve gone ahead and added another blog just like it.  It sends the message that there is one set of rules for Wings fans and one set of rules for everyone else. 

My opinion doesn’t mean much, but for what it’s worth I really think you should sever ties with A2Y and strongly reconsider adding Malik.  Like I said, this thing is yours and you can do what you want with it, I just don’t think those two blogs mesh with the goals you mention from time to time or with everything else you’ve got going on here.  I also want to make clear that I think you should have a Red Wings blog associated with the site, I just think you can find one that does more than fling poo at other fans.

Your opinion does mean something RoneFace and that is why I have added the ability for KK members to block any blog they wish to from the KK Homepage.

This option will be available in September when the enhanced KK makes its appearance.

I think everyone forgets that if there’s enough interest, KK could add a second blog for another team as well.  I’m pretty sure A2Y drives a HUGE chunk of the traffic on the KK empire, aside from the main KK page.

For the record, A2Y and Malik are very, very, VERY different.  Malik also posts on things outside of the Red Wings, by the way,  It’d be more-fair to call his a Detroit blog or Michigan blog than a Red Wings blog.  He also has done things on minor leagues, collegiate hockey, etc…

My opinion doesn’t mean much, but for what it’s worth I really think you should sever ties with A2Y and strongly reconsider adding Malik.

Sooooo, you hate the Wings, and you want there to be no Wings here at all?  Got it.  Have you even ever read Malik, or are you just seeing red (Wings) and throwing a fit?

I thought about it, but TPSH is too damn funny.
