SporeTips Blog
« on: August 13, 2008, 06:45:31 pm »
Hello, guys! I just started a blog about Spore, to share tips and show good content I find around the Sporepedia. I would be happy if you checked it out: sporetips.blogspot.com

So far I've only posted about myself, but I wish to feature other people's profiles, creations and tips. I'd like to feature in the "Check Out" section the profiles of AhavoRaboTaco, Jaleho and Pietoro (3 of my favorite creators), so if you guys are interested, just describe in a few words the guidelines or influences that go into your creatures. If you're in, I'll even keep a SPORE widget permanently in the sidebar of the blog, wich could be great advertising for your creatures.

Anyone else interested in being featured, can ask me here. I'll prioritize the ones I think are best, but please don't be offended by my personal tastes.

I'd also love if people sent me links for creatures they made with good creatortips, to go in the "Creator Tip" section.

I'm also open to suggestions... What you guys think would be cool to have in the blog?

I love the layout and colors, easy on the eyes, unlike some blogs. I love the widget on the side, and think the blog is a nice idea. Are you going to feature vehicles, buildings, and spaceships that you like once Spore comes out? since I don't have the full CC, only the trial I don't think my creatures are worthy, nor am I much of a good creature designer.

Thanks! I tryed to blend the layout with the widget as well as I could, since the plan is having several creator's widgets on the side.

And while I plan on featuring mostly creators, would be cool to show great creations of all kinds, and themed sets of buildings, vehicles etc.

Not a bad idea, and pretty good start for a site.  Keep at it :)

Thanks, guys! I really hope this grows... Maybe soon I'll add more authors to the blog, if people submit good stuff for posts.

I tried to make a creature using the same idea as tapeface, it didn't come out great, but with some practice I'm sure I'll get it. And I totally did not know about that Tab thing. Thanks for the tips!

Also, I have a 10MBs of creatures I saved in a somewhat organized folder system. Would you be interested in it?

Well, let's see how the blog goes. If you find any creators or tips worth noticing, send me a mail to sporetips@gmail.com, with link and text, so I can see if you could be a good author (my english isn't perfect, so it wouldn't be hard to please me with your writing skills).


Great blog concept! =)

Hey, Pietoro! Send me a few lines telling a little about how you make creatures if you're interested on a feature and a place for your widget on the blog. You know I love your stuff.

Sure. I'm interested in any kind of good content. Though I'll probably ask for permission of creators before posting anything in the forum.

That might be a bit difficult, since I didn't really keep track(Their name shows up on the card ingame so I didn't think it was necessary). Oh well.
