The last six years have been nothing short of awesome for our blog, but as we continue to expand our reach throughout the anime community and anime industry, many goals that we’re longing to accomplish acquire…a little bit more. We’re now in a unique position where our workload has expanded along with our brand and our reach. That’s why we’re opening up the door for volunteer contributors for our blog. We’ve been a two-man operation since 2016, but every captain needs a crew; ask Luffy!
For those that wanna contribute to our blog, there’s a few ground rules that we have before we publish your article; make sure your grammar game is on point (no misspelled words), your article has to be between 500-1000 words (we average around 650), your article has to be relevant to the content that we have on the blog (although we’re anime and manga-centric, we also talk about video games, conventions, Japanese food and music, and other nerd stuff), and lastly, make sure you do all research needed to elaborate any key points you want the readers to get out of reading your article.
We’re right in the middle when it comes to facts and opinions, so if you are going to cover topics that might just be a little controversial, make sure you have key points to help elaborate your claim. The biggest ones we’ve covered so far were “Sub v. Dub” (which is still an on-going debate to this day), and fanservice. I don’t know what the future may hold for D&A going forward, but somewhere down the line we’d like to hold some kind of 10th anniversary event powered by a kickstarter campaign. (Maybe something with a con-like atmosphere.)
Well, that’s all we’ve got for now, so if you’re interested in being a contributor to our blog, hit us up on our Contact Us page. Until next post, stay nerdy my friends! 😉
