    A few months ago, we hired Trey as our first paid blogger, and we've seen a big improvement on our news coverage as a result of this. In fact, the effort has been so successful that we are ready to hire again. We're turning to our community first before casting the net wider

    Requirements:
    • You are over the age of 18 . There are no exceptions to this rule.
    • You love tracking down news, breaking the story, and steering discussions
    • You have a strong grasp of English grammar, punctuation, and spelling and can write in a casual, fun style fitting for a blog.
    • You have an eye for simple layouts of stories that make the post look good (and can find relevant pictures, videos, etc. to embed)
    • You are a legal resident of the United States or a country that has a tax treaty with the United States (most qualify).
    • You can deliver at least 2-3 quality posts per day, of at least 200 words (more for reviews or original research stories)
    • You own or have reliable access to an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad and a computer.
    • You don't mind perks like app promo codes for review, and review units of cases and accessories.

    We are looking for people interested in covering the broad array of Apple products, from iPods, iPhones and iPads to Macbooks and Apple software packages. We also appreciate posts about industry developments that will have an impact on the position of Apple products in the market, meaning coverage of topics like Android will sometimes also be appropriate. We are also interested in bringing detailed, regular reviews and app store news front and center.

    To apply, email bloggerjob2@vigorousmedia.com with:
    • Full name
    • Forum user name, if any
    • Year of birth (and date if the year is 1992)
    • State or country of residence.
    • 1 or 2 original writing samples of the type you would be posting. Some example topics include app reviews, breaking news, updates about new releases, opinion pieces, etc., although you should feel free to be creative.
    • Feel free to attach a resume and/or school transcript, although this is not absolutely required. Previous deadline-based writing experience a plus but not necessary.

    Compensation will be determined based on your assigned workload and previous experience. We periodically increase compensation when justified by improved performance.

    Due to the volume of applications, we are not able to acknowledge every single one.

    I actually meet all the qualifications, but I'm too busy right now.
    I wish you the best of luck in your search for additional help.

    I may be wrong but I think they are looking for qualified people who can or want to do this.
