Bloggers and readers, your Scottish Roundup needs you.

Do you enjoy the Scottish Roundup or does it annoy you because something has been left out?

Either way, it might be time to step forward and have a go at putting together the roundup one week.

The Scottish Roundup is put together by a team of volunteers and we know there’s no way we can ever get round even a fraction of the thousands of posts produced by talented Scottish bloggers every week. That’s why a variety of people bringing their voice and view of the blogosphere is vital.

It’s not a huge job and we’ll hold your hand throughout. We have a very helpful guide for editors that we send you that tells you everything you need to know. Then on a Friday and Saturday we send you nominations that have come in via Twitter or via the website or via e-mail. You add in some of your own from your own reading and weave them into a blog post for Sunday’s Roundup. When you write it is up to you. Some people do it on Saturday late afternoon or evening, others get up with the lark on a Sunday and do it then. I’ve done both. Generally we like it to appear around 10 or 11 on a Sunday morning.

Typically it takes one to two hours to roundup the Roundup. Having said that I often get sidetracked by the range of blogs I discover.

If you’d like to have a go, drop us a comment here or a tweet (@scottishroundup) and we can fit you into the rota. If you’ve done it before, don’t wait to be asked, we’d love to have you back.

If you have any other suggestions for how we could improve Roundup, please also let us know.
