Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following:
1. Three sample posts of at least 500 words. (We will NOT publish posts submitted as an application. If we hire you, and the sample posts have not been previously published, you may submit them for publication. We will never publish them on our own accord.) These posts should show off your ability to write in different styles (for example, show that you're able to write concise how-to guides as well as interesting commentary ). The three sample posts MUST be on topic. If you are linking to existing work, those must be on topic too.
You are welcome to send other examples of your work, but please remember the three on topic sample posts are an absolute requirement.
2. Five concrete and specific ideas for future posts. Include details and/or an outline of the meat of the posts. For example, if you plan on writing about effective budgeting techniques, please list briefly what some of those techniques would be.
We're looking for smart, helpful and insightful writing. We love stories that are authoritative, extremely useful or highly entertaining. For more tips on your application, check out Lynn's Problogger article How to NOT get Hired for a Blogging Job
