Welcome to the Buffalo Bills Community here on BleacherReport.com!

In case you missed the first two newsletters (here and here), the point of these short write-ups is to bring the Bills community together and improve communications between all of the Bills fans here.

This newsletter will focus mostly on the community and some ideas to improve it. Included will be monthly/weekly awards during the regular season, ideas for writers, round-table discussion topics, and much more.

The newsletter will come out during both the off season and the regular season.

Right now there is no set date for these newsletters to appear, but by the start of the preseason they will become a weekly event.

Also, there will be a few tweaks each time, based on your suggestions of what you want to see.

Without further adieu, lets get the third newsletter underway!

Welcome New Writers!

I haven't had a chance to welcome all of the new members to the community, so I will do it very informally right now.


I know that most of the writers jumped aboard because of the CBS Sports competition, but only one person can win that, so I hope that most of the new writers stay because there has been some great work coming out of the Bills B/R section this month!

Bills Bleacher Report Community Now on Twitter!

In an attempt to get more great writers to jump on board with us here, along with getting out the great work already in place, I have set up a Bills Community twitter for the writers here.

You can visit the site by going here: twitter.com/billsbr.

As of yesterday when I started it, I will be updating the twitter page with the great work here everyday!

The format of the postings will be the writers last name (to get you guys recognition with the people seeing it), a small overview of the article, and the direct link to the article.

Hopefully this brings in new members to the community here while also getting out the great work done here to new readers.

Bills On-line Radio Show

No I haven't forgotten about it.

I will be looking to start up the show around the start of the preseason, so if anyone is interested, sent me a message, PM, or write a comment in below.

I have narrowed it down to two sites, either blogtalkradio.com or ustream.tv.

I am still looking at which one would be better so we can get multiple people on the air at once.  Right now blogtalkradio is leading the way, but I will be testing both in the near future. 

Bills Community Ranks at B/R

With it being the end of the month, I thought I would update everyone on where we stand with the rest of the 32 teams. 

Here is a quick rundown of where we stand for this month:

  • Articles: 259 (11th)
  • Comments: 337 (24th)
  • New Writers: 147 (6th)
  • Active Writers: 22 (7th)

I will take no credit for any of these stats of course, seeing as you guys were the ones who kept pumping out great articles.  

With the explosion of new writers, we have now passed both the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins, to settle into 2nd in the AFC East in terms of total members.

Two Minute Drill

Your ideas, suggestions, and comments about this newsletter are greatly appreciated. 

Any ideas on how to strengthen the community would be great too!

If you need me for anything, you can contact me through my B/R profile, by sending me a private message here on bleacher report or by sending an e-mail to buffbillsfan517@yahoo.com.

I am available at anytime for anything you need or any question to be answered.

Thanks for reading the third volume of the Bills Community Newsletter! Have a great day everyone, and…
