Are you a blogger for hire, looking for a blogging job?
Today I’m proud to announce the ProBlogger Job Board – a place where bloggers for hire and those looking for them will meet.
Two questions are popping up in my inbox over and over each week.
- “I’m looking for a blogger/coblogger for my blog but I’m just not sure where to find one – do you know of anyone?”
- “I’ve been hearing about people getting blog jobs – where do I find one? Do you know of anyone looking for a blogger?“
Every time I’m asked one of these questions I look at my ‘dreams for ProBlogger list’ and think to myself – I really should do some sort of ProBlogger job classifieds service.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to do something about it and talked to a couple of people about the possibility of designing me a Jobs area for ProBlogger. Unfortunately neither of the people I emailed had the time to do and after a few days I wondered if it would ever happen.
At around that time I had an email from Eric Allam from 52 Reviews who had been thinking along very similar lines and was looking for a partner. We got talking and over the past couple of weeks have pulled together our first version of the ProBlogger Job board.
The concept is simple and will be familiar to many users of other job boards out there.
Looking for a Blogger? - Look no further.
ProBlogger.net is read on a daily basis by around 5000 readers per day via the main site plus another 8000+ via it’s RSS feed. Most of our readers are bloggers and almost all of them are actively searching for information on how to earn a living from blogs.
ProBlogger readers range from the beginner blogger looking to start their first blog (undiscovered raw talent) through to the more experienced blogger with years of experience. No matter what you’re looking for, you’re sure to find someone that fits the bill among our readers.
Add Your Job to our Listings here and selecting which category of job you’re looking to position (we’re open to suggestions for other categories) what the job entails and how bloggers should contact you.
Your ad will appear in the top right hand corner of ProBlogger’s main page (we’ll feature the last five ads there) as well as on the main page of the job board and category pages. It’ll also be featured on RSS feeds which we expect to be popular with bloggers looking for jobs.
The cost of listing a job is currently $50 as an opening special but this will go up to around the $100 mark in two weeks time.
This service would suit companies looking for bloggers, blog networks, individual bloggers looking for CoBloggers or even bloggers looking for medium to short term guest bloggers while they take a vacation.
Looking for Blogging Work? Let us help you find some.
The best way to use the job board is to regularly visit our front page (currently dominated slightly by b5 jobs, but there’ll be more from others soon) where all new jobs will be listed. Also be notified of new jobs as they are added to the list by subscribing to our main RSS feed.
Alternatively you might like to follow along on one of our category pages or the RSS feeds that are attached to them if you’re looking for something specific.
In talking to potential advertisers this week (there are more preparing their ads) they are looking for a range of bloggers so whether you’re new to blogging or an old hand, looking for part time or full time work – it’ll be worth subscribing to the feed.
Give Us your Feedback
Eric and I would love to hear what you think about ProBlogger Job Boards. We’ve spent a lot of time thinking it through and testing but as with any new project that goes live there will be improvements that we can make, ways that we can make it even more useful for it’s users and bugs to iron out (we still have a few little integration things to work on).
We do have quite a few ideas for expanding the service and new features but wanted to keep the initial launch reasonably simple.
