The Fairelands welcome bloggers to share, capture and report their magic. The days that the portals stay open are surprisingly short and we want to make certain that the word spreads as far and wide as possible, so every possible guest knows when to visit and what they can expect to see.
Faire blogging should stem from the same source the Fairelands do: inspiration and imagination. There are no obligatory assignments. Instead there are challenges. We do not want to force anyone to do anything, we want to inspire, dare, encourage: challenge.
The said challenges are Faire Folk, My New Shiny, Why I Relay and I Remember. You can read more about them on their own pages. Why I Relay is only for those who have a personal reason to relay and is absolutely not necessary for those with no ties to the charity.
The challenges are open for anyone to do: official blogger or not. You don’t even have to be a blogger at all if you want to do these, there’s Flickr pool you can share the challenges in as well.
We are looking for bloggers that genuinely love the Faire and cherish the fleeting time the Fairelands visit our realm. Since the application is mostly about getting into the early access, we are focusing on bloggers who take pictures in the sims, or of the sims. Studio-work is not dependent on if the shopping sims are laggy or not, after all. We are also searching for bloggers with strong ties to RFL, who are passionate about the relay and willing to write about it. I am also always, always looking for and favoring good writers and storytellers.
There’s also an additional part in the application about the chance to write for Fantasy Faire’s official website. This has no influence on the actual blogger application and should be filled only if you are truly interested. There’s very limited spots for this.
For any blogger related questions that are not answered on the site, please contact Sonya Marmurek in-world.
