We are seeking fashion bloggers who can produce large numbers of well-written posts. Posts will generally be 50 to 500 words and include at least one image you will need to size and insert in WordPress.
The language of the site is English, so you must be fluent, but casual writing is fine i.e. you can use exclamations like OMG or LOL, general non-formal word choice. If English is your second language and you occasionally do not know the idiomatic way to say something, that is fine.
Although this is work for hire, you may choose a byline to go on the articles you write.
IMPORTANT: THIS IS A WRITING JOB, NOT JUST AN SEO KEYWORD FEST.
Required Writing Skills
--You know what alternative fashion is and you are interested in it.
--You have an entertaining writing style. (A personal writing style is preferred i.e. "I like this gothic dress because the way it is cut would show off my tattoos." rather than "Some people enjoy this kind of gothic dress because the way it is cut might show off their tattoos." Not that you have to have tattoos or plan to actually wear a specific outfit, just that it should be about your opinions and what you think.)
--You are able to consistently produce posts fairly quickly.
Required Technical Skills (WordPress and Photoshop)
--You must have a very solid grasp of basic WordPress post creation. This means being able to create a new post, save drafts, input text, copy/paste, insert images (including gallery feature), select featured image, create links which are target blank, and use code for things like boldface or italics or blockquote, and being able to do so without errors. (If you know how to insert images, we can teach you how to use gallery and select featured, if you have not used these advanced functions. If you understand boldface and italics, we can teach you blockquote. If you know how to create links, we can teach you how to make them target blank.)
--It is a plus if you are solid in the following Photoshop skills: cropping, checking pixel dimensions, saving for web.
--It is a plus if you know how to use alt tags and edit slugs and such to make a post SEO-friendly, although the main function of a post must be to be interesting, not to SEO well.
--It is a plus if you are also comfortable with adult content, please specify as this could be useful on an ongoing basis. There is no adult material in this project.
--It is a plus if you can use ICQ or AIM or Gchat instant messenger to communicate, as well as email, but it is not required.
Once your first few posts have been checked over, we can be flexible for whatever time zone you are in. Although we are initially only looking for 25 posts, if everything goes smoothly on the initial project, there is the potential for long-term ongoing similar work.
To apply, please include in your cover letter what sorts of alternative fashion you find interesting and mention at least one fashion site you like to look at for style inspiration. Please, of course, also show us any relevant writing samples and let us know your experience in each of the requested skill areas. A ballpark estimate of how long it generally takes you to write a post would be helpful. Thanks.
