From Helios to Hollywood Blogger Application
FH2H is a pop culture blog and podcast. The podcast is currently on hiatus while we make some changes to staff. However, the blog is active, and we're looking for a some new blood.
----- THE RULES -----
From Helios to Hollywood is a R-rated blog and podcast intended for mature audiences. That being said, NO PORN ALLOWED. R is not the same as X. Foul language is fine, just try not to use the c-word like a comma. That one tends to piss a lot of people off.
No hate, no exceptions. This is about our love for pop culture, not an attempt at inciting an online war over real life issues. All contributors will be given access to post their content without running it by me (unless you want me to). Due to this, I'm trusting you all to use your judgement regarding what content is a right fit. Steer clear of content that doesn't belong. Basically, stick with the bartender's golden rule: no religion, politics, or sports. Just avoid the hot-button issues and we'll be golden grahams. Also, please note that ‘no hate’ is not the same as honestly making a case for why you don’t like something. I’m not saying only post about it if you love it. You’ll see posts from me about things I just cannot wrap my mind around even though the rest of the world swoons over it (::::coughcoughfiftyshadesofgreycoughcough::::). Just dont use the blog to shit on people simply because they do like it.
No plagiarism, no exceptions. Now, this is not the same thing as sharing someone else’s post or reblogging another WordPress post, but if you do either, they need to be UNCHANGED (adding an intro is fine but you cant change the body of the piece) and credited to/linked to the source. However, passing off someone else’s work or stealing pieces of it to create yours without credit is bad and it creates bad juju, so don't do it.
SPOILERS ARE OKAY, but make sure the ***beginning*** of your post includes our spoiler caution banner (it’s already in the WP media library for FH2H - just click add media and search ‘spoiler’).
If you are a creator of some kind and want to promote your products (books, movies, videos, music, artwork, etc.), we dont have anything against that, but you must acquire approval from the owner or content manager prior to posting.
Some people prefer to blog under a pseudonym. If you have a particular name you'd like to blog under, please enter it here. If you'd like to use your own name, please enter n/a.
Please read through and check off each line item. All items listed below are non-negotiable.
I will not plagiarize original content from other websites.
If I share/reblog a piece from another website on FH2H, I will not change it in any way (adding an intro before the shared piece is okay and encouraged) and I will include a linked credit to the original website.
I will not engage with trolls because I understand that I cannot fix stupid,
I am committing to publishing at least one post per week (anything from a written piece to sharing a meme).
I agree to email the owner or content manager with any requests to publish posts about my own products (books, music, movies, etc.), and will not post it until I receive approval.
Before you submit your application...
First, please double check the spelling of your email address. If we dont have the right address, we cant get in touch with you if you're chosen.
------ WHAT COMES NEXT ------
If you're chosen, we will send you a link to the welcome package. The welcome package includes our shared drive link, WordPress dashboard link, and instructions for how to publish a post to WordPress. This includes specific instructions regarding what tags to use so readers can find YOUR posts. Be sure to read this.
Once you've been chosen, you will need to send me your WordPress user name. If you dont have one, just set up an account (it's free) and when choosing your username, remember that it will show as the post author on FH2H so choose wisely.
You will need to send us an image to use on the 'Those FH2H Bitches' page and a short bio, including a list of the fandoms you belong to.
Once we have your WordPress username, bio, and image, we will confirm that you're all set up on the site, and you will be welcome to start posting at any time. :)
