Seek And Deploy: Would Crowdsourcing Work For This Noise Is Ours?

This Noise Is Ours has been in existence now for nearly 8 years and while I've personally invested a lot of time in it since I first ventured into the world on blogging, I have enlisted the help of a couple of like-minded friends (Christer and Mikey) along the way to provide their own unique passion and thoughts on records and more recently live shows. 

I've been thinking about the blog's evolution a bit over this weekend and one thing I've been considering is Crowdsourcing (not to be confused with Crowdfunding). The idea I have is to open up the blog so that other readers and music fans can submit their own reviews, interviews and features etc for publishing, to help increase content and also the variation of that content. This is not a new idea but it's one that might help to bring fans of metal and punk together, from across the world and provide a unique perspective of local scenes and underground bands.

If this were to happen there would have to be a couple of rules; 1) no self-promotion of your band or label etc and 2) no flagrantly inflammatory or fake articles. Other than that, people could submit articles that would fit in with the overall theme of the blog by covering metal and punk. 

What are you thoughts on this idea? Feel free to get in touch and let me know. Thanks!
