I'm very pleased to announce a new feature at 12 Seahawks Street: Adopt-a-Seahawk!
Now, before you go talk to the old lady about adding on a room, a California King-sized bed, and $1000 a month to the grocery budget, realize that "adoption" is only figurative.
'Adopt-a-Seahawk' is a special feature being added to the site, and is a privilege available to 12 Seahawks Street contributors. On a first-come, first-serve basis, team members may solitarily possess their own separate section of the blog dedicated to the career of a rising star on the Seahawks roster. The 'contributor box' will have the author's profile and picture. The sectioned blog will grow from week to week, as you post updates tracking the player's exploits on the field, articles about his performances, as well as quotes and pictures.
For an example, check out the Ken Hamlin page at Becky's Place. While your site will not follow the same layout, the content will be similar, if you so choose. What you do in the blog is up to you. We're getting an early start to the whole thing so you have the time to get the hang of it before the season starts.
Don't be intimidated by it; it shouldn't take a lot of your time. Depending on the player, you're looking at just one or two posts a week. I can set up the template and get you started. You will just need to set up your profile the way you want it and select an appropriate picture or avatar. After that, my name will be removed and you will have complete control of the section.
So who are good candidates for adoption? Michael Boulware? Joe Jurevicius? Niko Koutouvides? Jerheme Urban? Maybe one of our upcoming draft picks? It's up to you, but be sure to adopt your favorite player before someone else does!
If you want dibs on a player, put it here in the comments. If you have any questions, do the same. We'll take it from there.
