I’m quite pleased to be able to announce a new section on Samuel’s Blog, Letters To The Editor.
This is your chance to set the agenda on Samuel’s Blog, all you have to do is send an email to email@example.com. Your letter can be about almost anything, and it can be from any part of the opinion spectrum, as long as there is some point to your letter. I don’t have to agree with your letter, but I am moderating, so the usual no defamation etc rules apply.
The letters could be your opinion on something in the news, something happening here on Samuel’s Blog, or something completely different…it doesn’t matter because as I said, it’s your chance to set the agenda.
A few little rules.
1. Only emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will be considered for inclusion
2. You must provide either your real name, your username on this blog, or a verifiable screen name you use elsewhere (you may need to point me to an example). That being said, you can tell me which name (it can be completely different, within reason) you would prefer to be published. A location would also be nice, because then I can refer to you in a logical manner (eg. Sandra from Perth).
3. I reserve the right to decide whether or not to publish your email. I also reserve the right to remove any content that I think would offend a large section of the audience (hopefully that will only mean obscuring parts of obscenities).
4. Please try to keep your emails under 500 words. I may publish them if they are longer, but don’t count on it.
I’m looking forward to receiving some interesting letters.
I haven’t decided how often I will publish the letters, it will depend on how many I receive and how much else I have ready to appear. Ultimately though, I think it’s a case of “The more the merrier!”
