The New York Islanders are currently accepting applications for their Blog Box.
The Blog Box was established in 2006 as a pioneer effort to give bloggers behind-the-scenes access to their favorite team.
Seated in section 201 of Nassau Coliseum, bloggers post entries during and directly after all home games. Bloggers are issued single game credentials on a game-by-game basis in order to get quotes and interviews postgame alongside mainstream media.
Insightful blog entries will be included as main stories on islanders.nhl.com at various times throughout the season. Bloggers will also get a link and biography on the Blog Box section of the Islanders website.
To take advantage of this opportunity please send your name, phone number, blog website link with writing samples to Chrissy Foster at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Nov. 30. Candidates will go through an application process prior to any final decisions on new writers joining the Blog Box.
