It’s cold outside. Rather, it’s freezing. It might be a couple of degrees above zero, but with the wind, it feels like minus thirty.
But, it’s a beautiful day.
This is the second consecutive year that the Oilers are gunning for a lottery pick, and it will be the fifth consecutive year they fail to make the playoffs. That’s a tough pill to swallow, but it’s one that every Oilers fan has to come to grips with every time you open the Edmonton Journal or visit the Oilogosphere.
You’re probably somewhat familiar with the Oilogosphere by now, and if you’re not, visit some of its fantastic members on the blogroll list to the right of the screen. There are many that I haven’t gotten around to listing yet. Some are extreme statisticians, some are great storytellers, some are just drunk and ornery (I fall into the latter). All have a passion for the NHL’s 29th ranked team in the standings.
It is with that preface that I am going to begin to scour for at least one, perhaps two contributing writers to this site.
Oil On Whyte is looking for one, maybe two contributing writers that can generate one or two pieces per week. We’re looking to expand our exposure by adding a voice or two. It’s a great way for you to talk about the Oilers, as well as have some fun writing about them. If you already have your own blog, or already write about the Oilers (or even if you don’t), I’d encourage you to send me a private message on Twitter @OilOnWhyte with your email.
We’ve got some great exposure as it is. Our posts are featured in the “Essential Readings” bar over at the wonderful Copper And Blue, and each update here can be found over at the comprehensive Oilers Jambalaya. We’ve got some great support throughout the network, and we’ve got some great readership following us on Twitter right now.
Plus, the support we get from Fansided.com and Site 5 is some of the best on the Internet.
Drop me a PM if interested.
