Blogger Jobs – ProBlogger Job Boards

Jobboardheader
Are you looking for a Blogger for your blog?

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.

  1. 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?”
  2. “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.

Bloggers

Latest-Blog-Jobs-1Looking 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.

So go to it – subscribe to the feed if you’re a blogger and take advantage of our two week opening discount if you’re an advertiser and list your blog job today.

  1. Damien says:

    That’s pretty darn cool. Hope it turns out to be a success for you, Darren — I don’t think I’ve seen anyone else try to compile such a listing.

  2. Darren, two comments –

    First, your latest jobs on the front page are very difficult to read. The orange works on your site here because it is bold or is on a yellow background when you use it. Non-bold and on white or gray backgrounds make it very difficult to read the job titles.

    Second, how do you think your service is going to do, coming on the heels of a free version through the performancing community?

    Good luck, either way.

  3. Jdaddy says:

    Looks like a great idea to me, but I think you needed a little more sleep before hitting the publish button.

    “Five Us your Feedback”

    ;-)

    Good luck!

  4. Neil says:

    This is by far the most awesome tool to help bloggers go pro!

    Great stuff, Darren!

  5. Where do I apply??!!

    Just kidding. Awesome idea Darren.

  6. Dan Blank says:

    Very interesting idea – this should garner a lot of press for you! I am curious how many companies/organizations will look at hiring bloggers in such a fashion, and how the payment structure will work.

  7. kahpecuce says:

    things are getting better and better for bloggers!

  8. Darren and Eric,

    This looks like it will become a great resource and I am sure I will find myself visiting often to browse the postings.

    Since it is a new endeavor, I don’t want to jump on you with enhancements too quick but as this grows I can easily see a need for a search function. Other than that, it is looking good so far.

  9. Abe says:

    Performancing has launched Exchange (http://performancing.com/exchange) for free.

  10. Great idea, Darren!

  11. Shadows Edge says:

    Wonderful idea and something I’ll be keeping an eye on! The text color on the postings does make it a bit difficult to read them though – at least on my screen.

  12. justme says:

    I think this is what we learnt in business school as being a “Win-Win” situation!
    This is a great idea, and I hope you can sustain it over the long run.
    I’ve just started blogging (still slightly scared of making stupid mistakes) but once I gain some confidence regarding my blogging skills, I might even try to find a blogging job here…
    And i just wanted to thank you for all your posts on blogging for beginners. I wouldn’t have known where to start if I didnt come across your blog.

  13. Lisa says:

    What a great idea!!

  14. I concur with Neil and Lisa! Fantastic concept.

    Regards

    That’s great. I myself have been writing professionally for a couple of blogs (apart from my own blogs, of course), and it’s great earning doing what you love. All the best to all the bloggers looking for gigs. May be some day I’ll use the board too :-).

  17. Amrit Hallan says:

    I wonder how the pingbacks/pingbacks appear. I wrote about this post here. Do I include some link when I post? Just wondering…because it has been happening with lots of blogs: I write a post on another post, but the pingback message doesn’t appear. I’m using WordPress.

  18. Miriguy says:

    Good idea. But how about us? The blogger for hire? I didn’t see any link to post that.

  19. Duncan says:

    A note to the people who keep calling “performancing” read this:
    http://performancing.com/node/3992

  20. Martin says:

    Congrats Darren and Eric … this will no doubt work.

    For those comparing the free (for now at least) Perf Exchange to this one I see a big difference:

    If I want to get into a J/V deal with someone or need to get a WP plugin created I’d go to Perf Exchange. Whereas here, it’s seems to be totally focused on blogging jobs.

    BTW, as others have said Darren, the orange is a bitch to read – that’s gotta be changed.

  21. kittyku says:

    Want people to pay to get a job ? get lost man.
    Shame on you, you have become greedy, perverted by success.

  22. Darren Rowse says:

    Kittyku – I’m not asking people to pay to get a job. All this service does at this point is ask people who are looking for bloggers to pay to advertise their position (similarly to what newspapers ask employees to do).

  23. Martin says:

    me thinks kittyku should read before shouting off like a dill ;)

  24. Um.. has the site been hacked? All I see when I go to the ProBlogger jobs board is a one page screed against Israel… ???? Huh?

  25. Jennifer says:

    I just wanted to say that I recently found the job board and I can’t even begin to describe how much I love it! I feel like I can see “real” job posts, and the fact that beginning bloggers and experienced ones have an opportunity to find something is by far my favorite thing about the job board. So, in conclusion, thanks for supplying people with such a fantastic website!
