One of ours does good.

After we started running for a while… I came to the belief that Shoggoth.net often functions as the “Minor Leagues” of the Cthulhu Mythos & Weird Fiction community. So far we’ve had to pull articles from the site because they have been published in print anthologies, we’ve had a fan who enjoyed the site without posting start my favorite game company, and most recently, we had a guy submit an entry into our art contest and got a cover deal out of it. Brave readers, you have no idea how proud this makes me. So, as you read this, if you have a creative leaning, a crazy idea, or other exciting idea.. write them up and send them in. You may think your idea sucks. You may be right. BUT those who read your work will make suggestions and comments in the comments and can help you create better next time. You may inspire someone else to post their work. You may be wrong and end up getting some paying work. A good & trusted friend told me just today; “there are LOADS of good people, talented people, who just need some encouragement. We need to train a new crop, because the Great Old Ones are starting to die off.”

Truer words have never been said. Submit, submit often, and we’ll continue to do our best to bring you our worst. Our most horrid, our most alien, our most dispicable. Because here’s our secret. We are you. Shoggoth.net is ran by and for you, the creepy kids of all ages who read our stories, play our games, and draw our pictures and write our tales. For this, I am most honored and humbled. Thank you each and every one of you, yes, even those of you who have never submitted and never will. Our only hope is that we live up to the great expectation and duty you’ve chosen to bestow on us. We shall endeavour to increase our presence and our reach. We shall hit up all the conventions we’re able to so that if you can’t make it, you can feel like you’re there (HP Lovecraft Film Fest: Portland videos are coming soon). We shall try to get more contests up, we are working behind the scenes to develop new technologies for the site to offer users more functionality. Like the creatures of our namesake, we work tirelessly; day & night, to serve the community and enrich the mythos we all love.

Here is the link to the Golden Goblin Press posting about it.

Advertise on Shoggoth.net!

download

A lot of the people that we run into, either in person, or through the blog, are creators in some way or another. That, combined with the niche that our blog studiously rests within, led us to adopt a new idea:
We’re going to offer up an advertisement program.
If you’ve noticed in the sidebars, we have examples of some of the advertisement options that we’re offering. Anyone that’s a creator, or has a product that’s Mythos or Weird Horror specific (You know…fits our website), is more than welcome to request a quote for a banner ad, Social Media ads, or a blog post advertising your creation.
Then you’ll be adding the visibility of every Shoggoth.net subscriber to your product’s potential.
That’s kinda awesome!
Interested? Email [email protected] and request a quote. We’ll send you an email with your options and pricing.
Disclaimer: We have the right to refuse any ad placements that we deem don’t fit the concept of our site or might in some other way be just too offensive or weird. We’re pretty open-minded people, but even we have limits.

Introducing Matthew Davenport!

This is a Picture of a fair skinned male wearing glasses with a well manicured beard. His facial expression is one of bemused confusion.

Matt Davenport

Well, this is awkward. An introductory post on Shoggoth.net.

Dang it! I mean exciting.

It would only be awkward if I were a Mi-Go, hiding in the flesh of Matthew Davenport, a new editor at Shoggoth.net.

And I’m not. That’d be silly.

Since I’m obviously not an alien being that travels through time and space choosing to currently be wearing a Matt-Suit, I’d love to tell you a little bit about him … err, me! Continue reading »

Small outage; Restored

Sad truth

Sad truth

We were down tonight for a short time.  We rebooted the server and are back online.  We are currently in the process of looking for new hosting options.  We’re one of the few sites out there who haven’t migrated to “the cloud”.  Instead we run off dedicated servers.

And then there was twitter.

Earlier this week we launched our twitter account @ShoggothNet.  Feel free to follow it & tweet to it.  It will automagically post all articles posted to shoggoth.net (hopefully) and we will use it to interact with YOU the users.
