Community numismatic newspaper/blog

| ClassicalNumismatist

So I just came up with an idea. I'm thinking of a monthly numismatic publication that will be posted in the blogs section. It will be made by the community and it will hold general knowledge, monthly news, new coins you'd like to share or completion of a set, humor and all sorts of other stuff. You just send me stuff you'd like to put in and i will. Like the numismatist but made by the ANA community instead of the ANA itself. Like I said it will be a monthly publication and community run. I think it's a nice idea, what about you guys?

Edit: It's pretty much a community run newspaper



Level 6

Sounds like an idea for the YN's. Go for it! I think most of the seasoned bloggers here would prefer to do their own blog/work...Just my opinion ; )

That's okay, we'll find the way.


Level 4

I think it's a good idea.

It's Mokie

Level 6

I am thinking it would probably not attract much attention beyond its first issue. People enjoy posting their own research, new purchases, etc. It's not about the points, it is about the nice warm glow when your blog goes up and receives feedback.



Level 6

Might as well. Give it a go and see what happens.

Yeah I wondered about that...,. why would people submit their original content to you and you get their points? What is the payoff?

I dont know, its their choice if they want. Its gonna be a big thing of concentrated knowledge monthly for the entire community, it just happens to run through me. Payoff? I dont know, something. Maybe the joy of working on a project or becoming closer with your fellow numismatists. This is still an idea, but it would be pretty cool for it to become something.


Level 7

I would say try it . But if the yns do that instead of writing a blog They will lose out for yns dollars for there blogs. It's up to each person what they want to do. Me show me the money!!

Thats one of the good parts of this project. You can do it when you want, if you want. You can write one paragraph one month and never be back. Thats the beauty of it, there is no commitment.


Level 5

Not sure, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.

True, but is it really all about the points? This is more of a team building exercise than anything. And if you write in it you will get full credit. Again im just the middle man copying your writing into one thing. And there is no other way to do this that i know of, so this is what we have to do at this moment to get it done.


Level 6

Go for it

Also just a thing people can work on if they want to. You can write a big section one month and be gone the next then come back the third. I've found it tough to occupy my time in this pandemic, and i bet you guys have too. You dont even have to do a big paragraph, you can do 4 sentences and thats it. It's just a big community project that we can bond over and help people doing it.

Im just the middleman that copies your stuff into the blog. You guys are gonna be the one making it. This is gonna be like the great experiment where all the great bloggers in the community come together to make a monthly publication. It's like an encyclopedia of knowledge and facts and jokes and experiences from the people who are in the middle of the action helping new people.

It probably wont work.

You never know. Give it a shot! Nothing ventured nothing gained

Bama, discord is a messaging app. I know where you are coming from with the blog thing. This is like more of a "big stuff thats happening in the community thing". If you wish to put your own stuff in their it is ok. It's tough to explain.

But why wouldn't we just post all that here ourselves rather than go through you? I don't get that part of your concept. Cause we already so all that for ourselves here....

A discord means conflict and dissent. Is that the correct idea you are trying to convey? On the other hand, if you meant discourse that means discussion


Level 5

Sounds fun. It would be a really long blog, but I would enjoy reading it

I may start a discord or google hangouts for this. Stay posted for that, this is a very ambitous idea and once the discord gets set up i will start making the full plan. It's tough to do effecient group projects of this scale on here.

A blog within a blog within a blog. Reminds me of inception, lol.


Level 5

Sounds cool! Let me know if I can help!

Level 5

Go for it! But from a marketing perspective to your intended audience... You have to answer the question s 1. What distinguishes it from the bogs we write? 2. What distinguishes it from the Numismatist? The reason I ask this is because I don't see a unique angle to pull in an audience. You have to make it a brand . Ask yourselves these questions and learn about branding. You have an idea that could be very successful if you work it right. But you have to offer something unique. I wish you success in your endeavors!


Level 5

Sounds great. A blog inside a blog. More information the better. I will send you some things to help. Looking forward to seeing.

Level 4

Level 5

Haha, Sounds like fun to me! A personalized publication for the ANA blogging community. I like it! If you want help with it, Id love to assist you anyway I can! Cheers, NM
