All of the content that is created for Shadowness, currently, is created solely by the Shadowness Staff. Each staff member is tasked with writing at least one article a week, though some do more, and some help with interviews, daily features and daily inspiration. It’s a big community effort and each day. As a result, we felt we should allow members to create their own site content in the form of Features, Inspiring articles, Information, Interviews and just plain awesomeness, like calls for critique,tutorials, community discussion topics and all else. Here's where you can find all of the Community Topics
Let's Take a Look at Some of the Great Community Topics!
First off, start with a topic.
Make sure that it says all that you’d like it to. "Interview with Christopher Ross" is good, but does it tell people who we’re going to be reading about? "Interview with Digital Painter Christopher Ross" is much better.
Next, you’ll need some content!
Content is generally divided into 3 sections. Text, Images and Links. It is important to keep the spacing and html very clean and readable for the members who want to access your content.
The better your topic reads, and the better it is formatted, the more likely people will wish to see your work, and discuss your subject matter. Remember, most people on the internet like text that is highly scannable, so that they can search for the content that they enjoy reading.
Proper spacing is a must to allow for good scanning. A good spacing rule of thumb is, double space before and after images, and triple-space before each header or h2 tag.
PLEASE spell-check your content! You can do this on most email and word-processing software. It only takes a moment, and it adds considerably to the quality of what you're producing!
Next, you'll need some HTML!
Using html helps your article to look its best! Using the 'Center' and 'h2' tags, you can create great headers and centered bodies of text or use the center tags to center your images like /DeathRockLuv (Dr.Luv) does in his weeklyShort Stories article! Staff Picks article! Make certain that your text follows your header immediately with no spacing, so that your formatted article will look professional!
Last but not least, Be Original. Content ripped from other sites, or loosely paraphrased will not be accepted. Create your own work, feature your favorite artists and do your own research.
Thanks for reading, Shadows! Keep your content in your sites as high quality as your artworks!
