For those of you that follow my posts at gregqualls.com know, Shannon and I are having our first kid in little less than three/four weeks.

Being the strategry kinda guy that I am, I know there’s no way I’ll get any quality blogging done during that week, so I think this is the perfect opportunity to try something I’ve been thinking about since I saw Clayton Bell do it on his site: Reader Week 2008!

For a week after the kid is born, I want to post your beer reviews, tips and tricks, insights on the church and beer/alcohol, articles on the historical church and beer, posts on theology, and posts on evangelism. I’m calling for entries now so that I can sort them out and have them set to auto-post while we’re “enjoying” our first days with our kid , whenever that might be!
Here are the guidelines:

  • Email me ASAP to let me know if you’re interested. You don’t have to have the post written already, but I want to make sure enough people are lined up to pull this off. greg[at]thebeerean[dot]com with the subject line “Guest Blog.”
  • Short and Sweet: Even though I don’t always follow this rule, I’d like all the posts to be no longer than 300 words.
  • Focus, Focus, Focus: When you email me, please let me know which of the categories listed above your post will fall into.

The benefits to you:

  • Your writing and personal blog will be exposed to TENS of new readers! (Hey, it’s the best I’ve got!)
  • If don’t have a blog, here’s your chance to get something out there without having to commit to a entire blog
  • You’re helping me out! We’re friends, aren’t we? Can you help a brotha out?

So there you have it! Reader Week 2008. I look forward to my email blowing up in response!
