The Daily SPUF - A blog for you! Posting submissions from SPUFers daily!

There have been many requests for a blog for SPUFers to share TF2 stories or post things that may not fit the forum. Well, now we have one!

I designed blog.spuf.info (UPDATE: Right now and possibly permanently we are spuf.org!) so that anyone with a SPUF account can submit blog posts, and we update daily! I'll do the editing, supply the pictures (unless you supply your own) and in general I've tried to make submitting as easy as possible. Read our "Write for us!" page if you'd like more information, and you can subscribe to either the blog or Twitter to receive updates when new articles come out.

(Update: If videos are more your thing, we now also do weekly videos on our youtube channel, The SPUF of Legend! Just like with the blog, we accept submissions if you've ever wanted to try your hand at making videos!)

There are already almost 3 years of daily posts to read through if you want to get a feel for how things look and work at Spufblog. Pictures are usually supplied by the hard-working folk at the Loadout Picture Request Topic, the site itself is graciously hosted by thesupremecmdr (owner of the SPUF server), and several SPUFers have already submitted posts, including stamda, Maxillaws, The Medic and XYTWO. If you've ever wanted to write a blog post, this is the time (and place) to do it.

Follow this thread for updates on our most recent article, or join the Steam group!

I'd love to write for the blog, but I'm so terrible at writing blog-orientated stuff.

Those who got 404 errors: Should be fixed. Problem was due to a name change for that page.

Those who don't think they can write blog-oriented stuff: As Maxillaws said, I can do interviews. Just talk me up and I'll turn it into a call-and-response style thing.

Alternately, just write it the same way you would a SPUF thread. Several SPUFers have merely converted threads of theirs into blog articles.

I could answer questions, I think I have the ego necessary to do that.
