How to contribute?

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! 😉

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.

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! :)

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

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 at 11:26 AM

Sounds good. Have a great trip! 😉

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


admin April 21, 2014 at 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. 😉

OK, Thanks.

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 at 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. 😉

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


admin June 1, 2014 at 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 at 7:05 AM

OK, I’ll try to be patient…


ninja5 June 3, 2014 at 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 at 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 at 7:12 AM

A PM? What’s that?


admin June 4, 2014 at 1:14 PM

PM = Personal Message a.k.a. email. 😉


Chris July 18, 2014 at 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 at 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 at 11:27 AM

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