Dreaming of a ‘Blog Market’

Paul is looking for bloggers that are looking for work. He’s hoping to build a stable of writers that he can match with potential clients, publishers and companies looking for bloggers. Nice idea really.

I was actually dreaming (day dreaming) last night and wondering if a time is coming where there is some kind of ‘Blog Market’ – where those looking for bloggers to write for them and bloggers looking for work come together in a virtual sense to bid and pitch for work. I envisage a wall street stock market floor where there are people with content to be written and blogs to be maintained who are vying for the attention of the best bloggers in their industry (and visa versa). Similar in a way to this one for programmers or this one for web designers or this one for freelancers.

I suspect that at this point there is probably an oversupply of bloggers for the amount of work that people are willing to hire for, but I’m hoping for a day where the demand and supply for bloggers in this kind of work evens out a little.

    There is something similar…

    It doesn’t really appear to be that active though. It is more of a jobs board than a marketplace anyway… I guess.
