Bootstrapper Cracks Technorati 10,000 – Assistant Entrepreneur Blogger Needed

Wednesday, September 19, 2007 at 10:30am by Site Administrator

Many of you reading this might have noticed all the great list articles on Bootstrapper the past couple of months. Some of the smaller ones are mine (w/ my name on them) but the bigger ones aren’t. The traffic that’s been generated by both these big lists and by the regular posts as well as resulted in pushing Bootstrapper well into the Technorati Top 10,000 blogs. That’s no small feat when you consider that the Bootstrapper blog was added to the Business Credit Cards website around May 2007.

There’s a great team at work behind the promotion and all the writing that I don’t do, and now I need an assistant business blogger to help me with regular posts and some smaller feature articles/ lists. For clarity, I’m contracted to Bootstrapper; it’s not my site/ blog. I’m the defacto Editor as well, and I need a hand with the blogging. Here are the details. Please read carefully before applying.

  1. You must have some experience blogging, and understand the value of deep linking as well as referencing other materials.

  2. You must have some relevant business experience or the equivalent knowledge of business concepts. A degree in business is not necessary.
  3. The focus is on entrepreneurship, startups, and especially bootstrapping. This is especially important, as all the articles you will be doing relate to these and related topics.
  4. 20 posts/mth (mostly 1 post per weekday, with a little bit of flexibility in schedule).
  5. 350+ words per post, original content. The occasional summary article is okay.
  6. Those who show suitable skills will be trained by me to also write 2 features per month for an extra fee, to be discussed.
  7. Rates negotiable depending on relevant skills/ experience – minimum $150/mth for 20 posts.
  8. One week trial or shorter, commencing Mon Sep 24th or as soon before Oct 1st as possible.
  9. Full duration unspecified – for later discussion. Minimum two months.
  10. I will be copyediting your work during the trial, though you should otherwise be capable of working on your own, with minimum supervision.
  11. Your location irrelevant, though a excellent grasp of English is a must.
  12. Payment is by PayPal only – no exceptions – and made early in each subsequent month.
  13. Reply in the comments of this post. For your sake, do not put your email address in the body of your comment.
  14. Only those under consideration will be contacted.
  15. When the position is filled, I’ll indicate that by updating this post.

  2. That’s great, but might be worth noting that you broke the top 10,000. Still a ways to go for 1000.

  3. Ooops. How embarrassing. I meant Top 10,000. It was 3:30 am when I wrote this.

    thanks, everyone.

    To the commenter who said “100, etc”, my apologies. I’m still tired and accidentally deleted a few comments.
