Description

Freelance bloggers wanted to live recap reality TV shows for an established entertainment website. You do not need to be a professional writer, but we are looking for bloggers with a strong command of the English language and basic grammar skills.

Writers must have:

* Working knowledge of posting text to Wordpress
* Ability to watch reality TV shows live as they air on the U.S. east coast and recap them live
* Know the difference between your and you're, its and it's, there and their and understand "u" is not an appropriate substitution of the word "you"
* Ability to complete recaps within 30 minutes maximum after show ends on east coast
* Must live in the U.S., be a legal U.S. resident and be able to be paid through PayPal

Preferred:

* Knowledge of how to crop and resize photos and insert them into Wordpress posts
* Basic understanding of the concept of keywording/SEO (or willing to learn and follow instruction - it isn't difficult)

Initial pay rate is $10 per hour of television shows being recapped. (A one hour show is $10, a two hour show is $20, etc.) Pay rate may increase based on traffic performance of published recaps. Maximum of 5 hours per week without prior approval.

Posts may not be republished elsewhere in full or in part within 30 days.

We prefer writers who really just enjoy reality TV and would probably blog about these shows anyway, but just want to make a bit of money doing it.

Currently available shows are:

The Bachelorette
America's Got Talent
America's Next Top Model
Fashion Star
Game of Thrones
Undercover Boss
The Next Food Network Star
Glee
Around The World In 80 Plates

The Glass House
Big Brother
Big Brother After Dark
Hell's Kitchen
The Choice
MasterChef
The Glee Project
True Blood
The X Factor
More coming soon...

HOW TO APPLY:

We want to see how you do the actual work and we will PAY you to apply. Write a recap of any of the above currently available shows live as it is happening and submit it to [email protected] within 30 minutes of the show ending on the East Coast. Recaps must be a minimum of 600 words. Please note we use software to check for plagiarism. Please include your full legal name and your PayPal payment e-mail address. If the recap is at all usable, we will publish it and pay you $10. If it is not usable, we will return it without payment. Publishing of your recap does not guarantee hiring for one of our freelancer positions, but it is a pretty good bet. :-)
