How to Share News & Become a Contributor?

Would you like to contribute to theBrickBlogger? Have an article, review, tutorial, news item, LEGO-related event, or sales & deals announcement you would like us to publish?

If you are the author of the post you can email it to us as a word document. If you want to include pictures or videos you can send them as an attachment to the post. (You can make notes in the article where you want the images or videos inserted.)

If the post or news item is on another website and you just want us to link to promote it you can let us know and we will publish it for you.

As a contributor you can also link to your own LEGO-gallery, website or blog. And if you become a regular contributor you will also get your own page under the Contributors section.

And of course if you have any questions just let us know.

Play well!

    How do i become a blogger/contributer?

    • admin March 4, 2012, 6:56 PM

      E, let me know what you want to write about, then you can send me in a sample of your article. If approved, your article will be posted. 😉

        how can i help out

        • admin March 30, 2012, 5:52 PM

          Dave, that depends on what would you like to do. You can become a contributor by writing posts, write tutorials and reviews, share your LEGO creations, bring interesting news… the options with LEGO are pretty much unlimited, so whatever you are inspired to do. If you have some ideas just let me know. 😉

          • Dave e April 8, 2012, 5:46 PM

              Dave, sure you cna submit articles. Just send it in as a plan text document. You can attach images to the article separately and just make a note in the article where you want to insert them. Any questions just let me know. BTW, I like admin better. 😉

    Admin, could I do a post with a interview with the guy who made the Legend Of Zelda Cuusscoo project?

  • nace10 May 29, 2012, 2:14 PM

    Admin, I don’t know how to give you the Link, 🙁
    so i’ll have to give you derections.
    Go to zeldadungeon.net then scroll all the way down to the bottom of the wite part of the page, then click OLDER ENTRIESoll. scroll down untill you get to close to the bottom of the page were it has all the names of posts. one of the posts name is interview with LEGO Zelda concept creater Michael Inglis. After clicking on it, near the bottom of the post is a little thing that says read full enterview. That way you have the full interview. 😎
    Sorry for the very long comment!!

    • admin May 29, 2012, 5:40 PM

      Nace, I couldn’t find it that way, bbut I think the content of the first page changes, so probably that’s why. I will look at it later and try to find it by search. 😉

  • nace10 June 1, 2012, 5:27 PM

    Admin, I E-mailed you a blog post on the LOTR website. Sorry if it’s a little too short!!

    • admin June 1, 2012, 5:55 PM

  • Fikko3107 December 17, 2012, 9:30 AM

    If i just want to give short heads ups instead of a full out post, What should I do? can i just put it here? All i want to say is that a moderator (meaning they are LEGO officials) stated that Ninjago will continue to 2014. Not sure of the authenticity, but this is a LEGO official post in the messageboards.

    • admin December 17, 2012, 10:01 AM

      I would suggest you mention that in the Ninjago section. Just select the Ninjago section from the left-hand side-bar, and pick a post. The latest one is a good choice. Also, don’t forget to provide the link and a direct quote otherwise nobody will believe you. 🙄

  • Sam, ninja of water January 3, 2013, 11:34 AM

    Admin, can I do a post about the new Chima website? If so, please just tell me in what format on Word I should do this. Thanks!

    • admin January 3, 2013, 1:13 PM

      Sam, I’m already working on a post on that for tomorrow. In general I accept last-minute posts from TBB’s official contributors as they already know the process and can write a post quickly according to our standards. For new contributors I recommend to write about something less time-sensitive for the first time so they can learn the process without time-pressures. 🙂

      • Sam, ninja of water January 3, 2013, 5:36 PM

        Ok, thanks anyway! 🙂

  • Fikko3107 January 31, 2013, 9:48 AM

    Admin, I just emailed you my contribution. How do I know if it’s accepted or rejected?

    • admin January 31, 2013, 10:05 AM

      Fikko, I emailed you back. 😉

  • Fikko3107 March 15, 2013, 4:32 AM

    How many articles posted is needed to be a contributor? Was it 3 or more?

    • admin March 15, 2013, 10:24 AM

      Fikko, yes it is 3. You are alread eligible and I just sent you a PM. 😉

      • Wolf May 25, 2013, 8:51 AM

        Only three?! I just got the Chima Pac Tracker, could I review that?

        • admin May 25, 2013, 10:31 AM

          Yeah, sure. 🙂

          • Wolf May 25, 2013, 1:29 PM

            Ok then. I’ll review at as soon as possible!

            • Wolf May 25, 2013, 1:30 PM

              Sorry about he mistakes, I’m using an old computer (its not mine!) ad the keyboar does not work.

  • carl joseph gamutin December 29, 2013, 4:26 AM

    hahahahah

  • Alex February 13, 2014, 8:17 AM

    Can I contribute by writing an article about the new Mixels website?

    • Alex February 13, 2014, 9:48 AM

      I also have a high-quality new picture of the next two waves of Mixels! 😀

      • admin February 13, 2014, 10:04 AM

        Maybe you could cover those then. Perhaps talk about a couple of aspects of the site I didn’t cover, and the later waves of Mixels. 😉

    • admin February 13, 2014, 9:55 AM

      Alex, I actually just wrote a post on that and have it scheduled for the 17th, as that’s when Mixels is going to be released. It doesn’t mean we can’t have another post on the subject, but I think it would be a good idea to wait until that gets published, and if you feel like I left out some things (I did), then maybe you can cover those in a separate post. 😉

      • Alex February 13, 2014, 10:05 AM

        Okay, can I just send you my post and you can sort of incorporate it into yours? I mean, if that’s okay with you…

        • admin February 13, 2014, 10:08 AM

          Alex, it’s too late for that as that post is already scheduled and is plenty long enough. However you could send me your post, and I can go over it, take out anything that covers the same subject as mine and schedule it for later.

          • Alex February 13, 2014, 10:09 AM

            Okay! Thank you so much! I can’t wait to contribute 🙂

  • ninja5 March 17, 2014, 10:22 AM

    Hey admin, may I write a post on brickforge’s 30 under $0.30 sale?

    • admin March 17, 2014, 10:55 AM

      Sure, you could, but I just checked their website and there is no mention of such a sale. 😕

  • ninja5 March 28, 2014, 5:28 PM

    May I post season 2 of Chima episodes? (As separate articles)

    • admin March 28, 2014, 7:02 PM

      Just send me an email and we can discuss further. 😉

  • ninja5 April 11, 2014, 9:18 AM

    I know you don’t usually post hero factory episodes, but may I post invasion from below? I’m pretty sure it is embeddable, I’ll go check right now.

    • admin April 11, 2014, 10:40 AM

      I’m hesitant to post episodes that are likely be taken down. If they are from LEGO’s own YouTube channel or even from the LEGO website, they should be safe. But other than that there is no point of posting a video when it gets taken down two days later. So just check to make sure that the source is reliable in this regard. Other than that, yeah, go ahead! 🙂

  • ninja5 April 11, 2014, 12:43 PM

    Yay, thank you! It is actually on Lego’s website, but I’m still not quite sure how to embed videos.

  • ninja5 April 12, 2014, 10:45 AM

    Hey admin, I’m going to be gone for a couple days, so I won’t have time to type the hero fac article, but I will do it when I get back.

    • admin April 12, 2014, 11:26 AM

      Sounds good. Have a great trip! 😉

  • ninja5 April 21, 2014, 6:20 PM

    Admin, did you get the fixed version of my article? I’m pretty sure I got it emailed to you.

    • admin April 21, 2014, 6:30 PM

      Yep, got it. I put it on the schedule. Not sure when it will be posted, but my guess is this weekend. 😉

  • ninja5 April 22, 2014, 2:55 PM

    OK, Thanks.

  • ninja5 May 1, 2014, 10:10 AM

    For my contributor article, may I write about the new sales on brickforge, such as May The Forge Be With You, the minifig giveaway, next round of 30 under .30, and do a quick overview of new items? I could have it done by Saturday.

    • admin May 1, 2014, 1:12 PM

      Those are good topics, however please note that I will not be able to post it for May the 4th. I’m usually about 5 days ahead in scheduling articles. If there is something really urgent I can turn the schedule around and sqeeze something in, but this has to be news that effects our readers significanly.

      I love BrickForge myself and I like to write about them once in a while with updates and such, however most of our readers are not customizers, so the May the 4th sale from LEGO is a lot more significant. I often put a piece of news like the May the 4th BrickForge sale in the comment section on that day. This way those who are interested can still see it without interrupting the main article.

      Since you already wrote about the 30 under .30 topic and those who are interested are probably already on BrickForge’s mailing list, I would suggest to choose a different topic, either about BF, or something else. Email me if you have further questions. BTW, I’m posting your Hero Factory article this weekend. 😉

  • ninja5 June 1, 2014, 8:06 PM

    Umm… Admin, sorry to be rude, but could you please post my contributor page?

    • admin June 1, 2014, 8:21 PM

      As I have mentioned I will post it as soon as I can. I didn’t forget about it, however I have been busy with work. It takes several hours to put together something like that, including editing, formattting, adding pictures, and linking all of your articles both ways. It takes time. Again, I will do it as soon as my schedule allows.

      • ninja5 June 2, 2014, 7:05 AM

        OK, I’ll try to be patient…

  • ninja5 June 3, 2014, 11:28 AM

    Admin, I’m writing a Bionicle style story with action figures, would I be allowed to post it on here, or do you like to mostly just post news?

    • admin June 3, 2014, 12:28 PM

      I can publish it if it is polished and professionally done. As you know, news is not the only thing we cover. It is perfectly all-right for contributors to write personal stories, opinions, etc. However it shoudl be done in such a way that it appeals to our world-wide audience. Send me a PM and we can discuss this further. 😉

  • ninja5 June 4, 2014, 7:12 AM

    A PM? What’s that?

    • admin June 4, 2014, 1:14 PM

      PM = Personal Message a.k.a. email. 😉

  • Chris July 18, 2014, 10:08 PM

    Wait… I don’t have a website. but I know how to make one. Do I need to make one to be a contributer?

    • admin July 19, 2014, 11:45 AM

      Chris, I’m not sure what you mean or why would you need a website to write an article. Of course if you have a website we can link to it, but it is not a requirement.

  • Chris July 19, 2014, 11:27 AM

    Ok I’m making one. I’ll tell you it when I’m finished.

  • Jacob February 24, 2019, 6:05 PM

    I was just wondering if it’s okay to share your Lego project Idea on here but I can’t seem to connect my email to contact.

    Here’s the link anyway. Thanks.

    • admin February 24, 2019, 7:20 PM

      Sure you can! Thanks for sharing, and wishing you the best with your project! 🙂

      • Jacob February 24, 2019, 7:33 PM

        Thanks!

  • Samantha January 14, 2020, 7:45 PM

    I’m a massive fan of your site! I have also started a LEGO blog in my spare time with my friend and wondered if you guys would post stories that I write for my site, or if I would have to write something original for your website? I’ve got some interesting ideas (well I think so haha)

    • admin January 14, 2020, 11:01 PM

      Samantha, welcome to the world of LEGO blogging! You’re welcome to write for us, however we do require original content. Just PM me if you’re interested. 🙂

      • Samantha January 15, 2020, 5:45 AM

        Thanks for the reply! Ok, I will get in touch when I think I have a good enough article 😀
