Writing is Expensive: Planning Content

It’s been just about six months since Dwarves in a Trenchcoat became a thing. It’s has been a wild ride, and one we’ve enjoyed.. We’ve managed to release a good few products, and we’ve got a whole slew of releases in the pipeline. There have been some good positive reviews we were happy with. We’ve even got some work with other writers and publishers coming up.

At this point, we’re deliberately taking a step back to reflect on what we’re about and how we’re going to move forward and grow. That covers all of what we do in terms of product, website, social media, everything. We’ve got some exciting things coming together, but this post is about our blog and it’s content. We’re writing about a process we’re still moving through, which is something because we’re eager to be transparent, and we’re going to be doing some research with our community.

Going forward, there are three things we’ll be looking at changing with respect to blog content.

User-involvement

To really shape our blog content into something our readers find worthwhile, we’ll be asking what it is people want to see in terms of RPG blog content, and looking at what we can do to offer that while still bringing ourselves to the table. Keep an eye out for that over the next few weeks. In the meantime, feel free to barf your ideas at us on Twitter.

Serial Content

Currently, we do have some broad categories our content fits into, but the content hasn’t been properly planned as a series of connected posts so far. This is going to change. We’re currently creating a detailed plan for several series, and we’ll be informing that with data we’re just beginning to collect. If you’ve got things you’d like to see, we’d like to hear about them too.

Guest Spots

We’ll be opening up spots on our blog to other writers we work with soon. This is to help diversify our blog content and show off the work of other people we’ll be publishing. Some of those are writers we know, but we’re going to be growing the list of people we work with soon. If you’d like to be one of those people, feel free to contact us.
