Blog Name: /officerchat

Blog URL: http://www.officerchat.com

Blog Focus: Guild Leadership/Management - Tailored advice, stories, and suggestions for Guild Leaders/Officers

Character Name: Sedgewick

Other Information:

Over the years, I have played the role as officer in many guild organizations, and as member in even more. The years passed by, until I realized that I have not once found a guild or a mild group of people with a firm standing upon leading the remainder of their clan. Now, I am no self-proclaimed expert on managing a group of people over the internet; I make quite my fair share of mistakes. I believe, however, that with the broad experiences in which I have encountered combined with the enlightened opinions from other successful guild officers, we’ll be able to finally put forth a respectable resource for guilds high and low.

What you can expect us to touch upon here:

* Successful guild policies
* How to motivate and support your members
* Cultivating a strong management team
* Enriching friendships, yet commanding respect
* Loot disbursement dilemmas
* Raid leader improvements
* Recruiting & retaining members


Enjoy your day! ; )

-Sedgewick

A very interesting read. I enjoyed the article about officer types, and the one about how ranks influence your members made me think what message our guild may be sending to their members.

Always good when a blog makes you think about things :mrgreen:

I just became an officer, so this is REALLY timely for me to find this! I've only skimmed the articles so far, but it looks like a great resource!

A huge thank you to both of you. Starting off this project, I had not found too many blogs for this subject, but now after I've gotten more involved in the blog community, I have found a few others who share the same interest. While trying to keep my content on a different level than the others, I find they are all great writers as well and I'm glad to be a part of the community.

Thank you again, hope I can help w/ any dilemmas you may have. ; )

(Working to get a decent rss up atm, I'm not the most experienced with such, but I think I may have gotten it.)

Hi! I just discovered your blog, and while I think it is absolutely fantastic... I have one small, eensy little quibble...

You have truncated posts when people subscribe! *sob*

Any possibility of changing that? Apart from that your blog looks awesome, interesting and relevant.... just what I enjoy reading!

Thanks for the tip. I'm not the most knowledgeable with all the feed stuff, but I think I have have gotten it figured out. Give it another whirl and let me know what's up.

I appreciate the support. ; )

EDIT: no feedback!

I have a new contributor, Solanum, who's joined the team. Having a girl's perspective has been quite intriguing on things that I've generally taken for granted.

Curious, has anyone else ventured into a multi-authored blog? Benefits/Pitfalls?

Forum support added. Been contemplating a submission contest, has anyone tried anything of the such?

ex.

X copies of Cataclysm to be given to top 5 submissions on Y topic.

Was a former officer of a guild about a year ago and really wish I had this website then as it gives you a lot of information that is of great help to possibly even experienced officers.
