Deb’s Note: I hesitated before posting this ad. I worked for About.com and know when they’re looking for writers they don’t advertise on random freelance writing blogs. Plus the person who took the ad isn’t using an About.com email address. I did do some investigating on your behalf and have learned the person who placed the ad is the About.com’s new Guide to Houston and is looking for writers to help with that site. The pay is $10 per post or article. Make sure you get a byline.
About.com is relaunching the Houston site this week and we are looking for the following types of writers to contribute weekly/bi-weekly 300-400 word articles:
Family Activities Writer
GLBT Activities Writer
It’s not necessary to have a camera but it will certainly help your cause. These are paid positions. You will turn your work in to an editor and he/she will post it to the site. HTML experience is not necessary. Please send relevant clips to [email protected]. If you have an idea for a weekly/bi-weekly contribution that you feel may be appropriate for this site, feel free to pitch it. We understand that the FWG community is one that values their time so we will respond within 48 hours either with an assignment or a Thanks For Applying note. Thank you.
