Whoa Nelly!

First, I want to say that when I put a sentence in a post a few days down saying that I would consider letting another person or two join Vikings Gab, I fully expected to get zero responses.

After all, who would be dumb enough to actually want to commit hours of their life to being an unpaid hack blogger that people like to ridicule in the comments section?

Well, apparently quite a few people.  My inbox is being bombarded with resumes and letters of interest.

Seriously.

While I will give these decisions the due diligence they deserve by reading everything that has come my way, I want those of you that have shown interest to know it may take me a couple days to get back to you.  I have already welcomed Mike Halldorson to the team, and for logistical/security reasons am only going to add one more writer at this point.

So, please understand if you send in an “application” (I still can’t believe the level of interest) after this point in time it will not be considered.  Also, if I turn you down please accept my apologies.  Every application I have seen so far has been great, and I am sure the rest are too, I just have to be careful how many writers I add. 

If I add too many new writers, then I will be spending all of my time coordinating articles instead of actually writing them (I know, I know, some of you would love that).

So thanks again to those that applied.  Please be welcoming to Mike and our soon-to-be-announced new guy (or gal).  And, of course, thanks for continuing to make Vikings Gab the place to be for Vikings fans!

    People wanted to write on this site? Wow, I thought Freddie would want to be an author, but many apps?
    Go Vikes

    I hope this is cool to post this here, and not TOO MUCH of a shameless self promotion, but if those writers who showed some interest in writing for Vikings Gab but don’t get the job are interested in writing about the Vikings, The Viking Ship allows reader submitted articles, and I’d be happy to post your thoughts.

    I’m certainly not trying to rob from Vikings Gab, but like Adam said, he can only allow so many official writers.

    Hello Johns,

    Thank you for your endorsement for being a well paid columnist for this fine blog but, your old pal Fragile is very busy right now.
    Freds will be coming out with a book later in the fall. I will send you a signed copy when it is released. Freds is still working on a title, he’s leaning toward one of the following:

    1) “Freds, his life in the NFL and on Lake Minnetonka.”

    2) Freds, his life in the NFL getting paid a ton of money and tackling no one.

    3) Freds, his life in the NFL and the fat women who chased him.

    4) Freds, his life in the NFL and Lawrence Taylor is a coke infested rapist.

    Well, your old pal started to get off track on number 4, but you get the picture. Fred is sure some of his fine blog friends like coach Bud will come up with some smart ass comments, but don’t worry I will send you a copy. By the way, the book doesn’t have many words, just a lot of pictures.
