Hey guys, I've got a favor to ask.

For my Bachelor's degree, I have to do a capstone project this semester. I chose to do a site geared towards vinyl records for beginners. A section of the site will have articles to help get people started. I want to have information about what kind of record players are out there, how to maintain them, how to care for records, where to buy them, etc.
I already have the url, vinylrevolution.net. I'm working on coding it right now, but here's a mockup of how the main page will look (roughly):

Record Site Site_m10

So here's where I need a hand. Would anyone be able to lend their expertise to write a quick article on one of these vinyl-related how-to topics? I'll be doing some of them myself, but I'd like to have a more diverse set of views than just mine.

Hey tdawg.

I love the idea of the site, vinyl records for beginners, really great idea.

I looked for something like this when I started but didn't find anything useful.

I would be up for writing a quick article on something. I will have a think about what I tried to find out and let you know what topics I could do, there is still a lot I don't know.

Yeah, same here. When I began, it was hard to dig through all the lingo of pro record collectors and poorly organized sites to figure out what to do. I'd love to have your help, even something really basic is great! THanks.

It's just lorem ipsum text, which is used as filler text for when there's no content to put there. Some of the words are actual Latin, most of it's just gibberish.

Vinyl not vinyls.

Maybe do like a Top ten rules for beginners.

#1 - It's vinyl not vinyls.
#2 - Do your homework.
#3 - Get the money before you ship the records.
#4 - Always use delivery confirmation.
#5 - Don't spend rent money on records.
#6 - Support brick and mortar establishments.
#7 - Check what vinyl is available at concerts.
#8 - Stack records horizontally.
#9 - Trade, it's fun.
#10 - Buy The Gaslight Anthem vinyl.
