With the rejection E-mails going/gone out, it’s a good time to remind people that there are other review and original content sites out there for you to find, Join (when possible), and get help and peers to improve.
TGWTG gets the most viewtraffic, and for someone struggling it can seem like the best option to be validated under, but many of these sites strive to be as good, showcase people that can be just as good and just don’t get noticed (affiliate, anyone?).
This is not a perfect compendium of them, but it’s something for people to look into.
Manic expression: Express yourself. Currently undergoing site upgrades, Manic expression allows for blogging on topics as well as video compendiums, and is open to all users to see themselves showcased. Also allows access to springboard for video syndication through them.
The agony booth: The Classic reviewer site, named after the Agony booth from the 60’s star trek show. Originally text-based, they now produce their own stable of video reviews. Unknown status on submitting to them.
Reviewtopia (RVT): Another of the older crowd sites, host reviews and articles, with a community reviews section big on the front page that shows recent submissions.
Geekvision: Something for every type of Geek, with a few articles. The forums allow for free posting of video content in it’s own section. Currently closed for submission.
RTGomerProductions: home of the raging Thespian and his merry band. Supports video, podcasts, livestreams and written articles. Free-posting of content in forums. Currently closed for submissions, as I understand it.
Channel Zero: Supports livestreams, Podcasts and webcomics on top of a stash of reviewers. Currently closed to submissions, but you can freely post your work on the forums.
Space monkey mafia studio’s: Currently under construction, another review site. No current forums, but something to keep an eye on.
Normal Boots: Entertainment Rebooted. Normal boots is a Collecion of Youtube gamers corroborating in a community to support one another. They have a subreddit.
Rise of the critics/Independent Mayhem (the name is being changed): newbie site open to all types of constructive web original content and helping people improve. Front page rotates showcasing of posters, currently working towards service upgrades. Has a public hosting service for video’s open to those having trouble with Youtube and other host sites.
If there’s any been missed feel free to add them, as this submission is to let people know they’re not alone, there are other sites out there that would be happy to see you as part of them, and to keep your options open.
hell, all but one of the people to my knowledge that just made it on TGWTG Were on at least three of these sites already.
'Cause ultimately? We're in this together, and get more noticed by helping each-other form a place where we CAN be noticed.
Definitely a severe lack of Nerdvice on this list.
