Some more info on the changes to this blog

I just wanted to take a couple minutes and tell you guys some more about the direction that this blog is going to go.

First of all, let me make it known that we are still first and foremost a Minnesota Vikings Blog, very much in the way that you would expect. I’m going to report the Vikings news as it comes out, and I’m going to give me opinion on a lot of that news. If that changes in any way, it will only be that it becomes more frequent.

The biggest change on this site will be that I will make use of more multimedia features. The site will become much more visual, with pictures and charts and whatever else I can find that will enhance the information that I’m offering to you. There will also be much more video… both original video content that I create myself, and interesting things that I find around the web.

The other big change will be that this site will take on a little bit more of an “All-Things-Vikings” type feel. I’m a huge Vikings fan, so I understand that Vikings news is the most important thing for a site to give me, but at the same time, I enjoy Vikings highlights, trivia, humor, pictures, history, player information, and a lot more.

So for that reason, I’m going to resurrect the old features of Player Profiles and Vikings History. They won’t be weekly features necessarily. Instead they’ll be “periodic” features. Sometimes you’ll get 1 a month. Sometimes you’ll get 3 a week. It just depends and what’s going on in the Vikings world.

But we will be adding regular features. Every week day you will get an interesting piece of Vikings trivia. Twice a week you’ll get a Vikings joke (usually at the expense of our division rivals).

And finally, when the regular season starts, you will get some amazing new features. I can’t tell you about them yet, but I have a feeling that they will be your favorite items on this blog.

So keep an eye out over the next several days for some new features, and be sure to let me know if you have any additional ideas for me. I have added a contact page at the top of this blog with several ways that you can reach me. I look forward to hearing from you!

Today is the Day!

Hey Vikings fans! Today is the day where we begin to introduce new features to this site. We’re starting with something I am calling “The Viking Ship”. Basically, it’s a live video report for the blog.

Keep watching throughout the day. I’m going to introduce another couple of features, plus explain the direction we’re going to head in overall.

Just one week away now!!!

One More Week!

It’s almost time!  One week from today we’ll be launching the new and improved!

Down to only 2 Weeks!

2 More Weeks

In 2 weeks we’re going to liven up the party around here. Be sure to keep watching!

I’m looking for some creative people!

Hey Vikings Fans!

Do you sing?  Do you draw?  Do you make videos?  Cartoons?  Posters?  Do you make your own clothes?  Do you write poetry?  Do you bake and decorate cakes or cookies?

In just under 4 weeks, this site is going to undergo some transformations.  It’s still going to be my goal to provide you with up-to-date Vikings news (when there is any… July is SOOOOOO boring!  Ugh!!), and I’ll still be using the blog to share my own opinions about all things Vikings, but I’m going to be adding some more entertaining elements to the site as well.

So, that being said, this is your chance to become active in the site.  If you are creative or entertaining in any way, send me some of your stuff, and starting in August, I’ll start featuring fan submitted Viking stuff on this blog.  I’m open to a lot of ideas, but here are some ideas to maybe get you rolling

  • A picture of your custom drawn/painted/sculpted/etc Vikings art
  • An MP3 file of a Vikings song that you wrote
  • A custom Minnesota Vikings video you created
  • A picture of you decked out in all of your fan gear
  • A youtube video of you playing the Vikings fight song
  • A picture of your custom made Vikings clothing
  • Photos of your extensive collection of Vikings Memorabilia
  • Photos of a Vikings cake you decorated
  • A copy of a Vikings poem you wrote

These are just a few ideas to get you started.  Like I said, I’m interested in pretty much any kind of creativity you’d like to display.

And even though it won’t go on display until at least August, start sending it in now!  I’ll save it and get it ready to be shared with the Vikings Nation!
