    Welcome to the party!

    I'm working on my first news article. Will see how it goes.

    Er...do I need to post a template every time I submit an article, or just 'submit for review' and leave it at that?

    Fair warning, it's probably a bit rusty, but everyone has to start somewhere!

    Be honest, and I'll correct/update it as necessary.

    Y'all are going to make me blush!
    Plus, I'm going to have a hard time beating the first article.

    Beginners luck!

    I know, I know, "don't double post" but really I'm just double-linking. So ha!
    Question here, please let me know.

    Another question: In my continued efforts to keep the news OC centric, it seems that newsworthy articles are not found very often. Should I be keeping it strictly to hardware/OC-related content, to keep it consistent or is publishing articles at a regular interval more important?

    Also, could you post your recommended news sources? I've got quite a few in google reader, but want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

    Thanks again folks!

    Edit: It's been over 8 days since I've found/published anything deemed newsworthy, thus my concern.

    You're fine. Better to post qualified news than any gibberish we find that doesn't serve our readers.

    Places to look:

    Anandtech
    TechReport
    TweakTown
    SemiAccurate (though, beware - that's often an accurate description too)
    Slashdot

    There are plenty more -and big ones- but my brain just quit working. Will post more as I think of them.

    Cool, thanks for the links hokie. And don't worry about the "brain not working" bit, I'm sure that benching party hangover is still with you.
