Bloggers – have you checked out ProBlogger’s Job Boards lately? As it currently stands there are 19 unfilled blogger jobs there ranging from Boxing and Wrestling bloggers to Celebrity Bloggers, to Insurance Bloggers and New Media Communications Specialists. Keep an eye on the jobs as they are listed via the RSS feed.
Blog Owners – are you looking for a blogger to write on a blog? While there are quite a few unfilled jobs on the board there have been considerably more filled (some removed and some still there) over the past couple of months (some within hours of them being listed). Advertising a job still only costs $50 (we’ve extended the opening special) and at last count there were 500-600 bloggers tracking the RSS feed each day (and a couple of sites picking up the postings and republishing them on their own sites)..
A few people have asked me whether I see the ProBlogger job board as a success recently. While it’s not had as many jobs listed as some other job boards launched around the same time and it hasn’t made us rich – I’m really pleased with the fact that every few days I get an email from an advertiser asking me to mark a job ‘filled’ or a blogger letting me know that they’ve found a job through the boards.
We also started the boards not expecting a massive take up in the initial months but more as a longer term strategy as it is a growing market and one that there will be an increasing need for services in over the coming years.
In the mean time – people are finding bloggers and jobs and that leaves me feeling really satisfied.
