10 Blogging Jobs to Apply for Today

Posted By Darren Rowse 27th of March 2008 ProBlogger Site News 22

The ProBlogger Job boards have been listing some great jobs for bloggers of late. Here’s 10 of the latest from the last 7 days:

What excites me is that there’s such a variety of jobs being advertised not only in terms of topics/themes but also in terms of advertisers (with a few mainstream advertisers in the last month) and roles (I’m especially noticing more advertising for editors, managers and community managers).

  1. Definitely some great jobs. I’m going to check out a few of them especially the fashion blogger job.

  2. I too like the variety of these jobs.I hope I can fir somewhere.

  3. Sorry for spelling mistakes.I meant I hope I can fit somewhere.

  4. Maybe I should look into these to increase my knowledge of blogging overall. Seem like good opportunities!

  5. I listed one of those jobs (yesterday) and have already had 6 or 7 really qualified applicants contact me.

    Two thumbs up job board, will be using it in the future.

    You’ve got a great audience here Darren.

  6. Darren,

    Thanks for posting the list of jobs available. I will be looking at a few myself.

  7. thanks Brad – glad it’s working out for you. I hear the same story from most advertisers – lots of amazingly qualified people looking for work!

    So, what would jobs like those likely pay? Is there a range of hourly pay that is pretty standard in this biz?

  9. Good jobs.

  10. Really? 3 – 4 posts a week at $5.50 each a great job? Really?

  11. Thank you for information and leads.

  12. Gadget Blogger reporting for duty!

  13. I hate to sound so pessimistic, but I bet those great job’s pay very poorly. It’s quite unfortunate.

    When is the art of blogging going to command a price tag that acknowledges the talent that an exceptional blogger delivers?

  14. Hey Darren, I’d be curious to know your thoughts on what’s a fair price to pay someone to blog. Something like your recent post “How Much Should I Charge for my Advertising Space?” but catered towards hiring bloggers…”How much should I pay my freelance blogger?”

  15. Great job postings!

  16. This is fabulous! I just started my blog and I think it would be interesting to show it to some of these employers to see what they think.

    And then, hopefully they’ll hire me ;-)

  17. Hans,

    Looks like you were selective in your reading.

    Posts pay $5.50 for short posts (quick tips) and $9.50 for longer posts.

    Not to mention bonuses for traffic.

    While I realize this isn’t a huge sum, there’s certainly room for growth as the site grows.

  18. Looks good, but none of them are coming up. It seems we are having an error.

  19. I check out the job board a couple of times a week. I hav also noticed some juicy jobs being posted lately.

  20. If you ask me, I feel that posts between…

    100-300 words should fetch about $12

    300-500 = $17

    500-750 = $25

    750-1000 = $33

    1000+ = $40

    Any word count over 1000 should be negotiable, with bidding starting around $50.

    Honestly, I think that the prices above are a bit on the low end, but I didn’t want to blow too many minds with my true feelings about how the profession of online writing deserves higher levels of compensation.

    BLOGGING REQUIRES TALENT! I know there are a lot of people out there who write in a manner that proves that they’ve never studied the art of sentence structure, grammar, or punctuation, and those folks should command lower figures. But, those professional writers who will provide top quality content – both from a technical and entertaining standpoint – should receive much higher levels of compensation.

    The old saying still rings true… “You get what you pay for.” Unfortunately, there are too many blog owners out there who are satisfied to hire cheap writers to produce cheap content. These blog owners typically come from the group of internet entrepreneurs who would rather increase the profits of their blogs instead of increasing its entertainment and informational value.

    Content is king! Stop paying thousands for your blog design and start paying fair prices for your content!

    Whew! Sorry for the rant ;-)

  21. Ooops. I changed my mind about my – low-end – pricing estimates…

    100-300 words should fetch about $12

    300-500 = $18

    500-750 = $28

    750-1000 = $39

    1000+ = $50+

    Any word count over 1000 should be negotiable, with bidding starting around $50.

    Even with these corrections, I’ve got a gut feeling that I’ve still undercut what the true estimates should be.

  22. Wow extremely helpful for any blogger out there.
