We are looking for someone in debt that is willing to blog about it. We recently purchased the Blogging Away Debt Blog and are looking for someone to take over the blogging from Tricia once she has paid off all her debt. Tricia will still be around blogging for awhile, so you would be blogging side by side for several months and then once Tricia has freed herself from debt and moved on, you would be the main blogger for the site. You would continue to blog until you paid off your debt at which time a new blogger would take over for you.
While basic writing skills are important, we are far more interested in finding someone that is willing to open up and share even the difficult stuff that comes with being in debt and trying to move in a debt free direction. Honesty and frankness are vitally important, as well as a willingness to share even those things that you would rather hide if you had the choice. We’re looking for someone who is willing to open up their personal debt journal and share it with the world knowing that although it may be difficult, doing so will help others that are facing similar problems with debt.
This position does come with a small amount of pay, but not enough to be of interest if you only want to blog for the money. Ideally, it would be someone who has decided that they are willing to share their debt struggles with the world and would do so even if there wasn’t any money involved at all, but the small amount just makes the sharing a bonus. The position does require that you make at least 4+ posts a week, so only those that are willing to make a commitment should apply for further information.
There is no set format for the blogging — it is basically you documenting your personal debt journey the way you want. There is no need to write “how to” articles or do a lot of research beyond what you end up doing for yourself and then honestly sharing your experiences and observations with the readers along the way. You can blog under an assumed name if you wish.
If you think that this position might be of interest to you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Debt Reduction Blogger Position” to get more detailed information about the spot. Please include a little bit of information about yourself. We will be accepting emails from those interested until October 13.
For those that are interested and email me, please be patient. I will get back to everyone about the 15th or so with more detailed information and probably have a few questions to ask you as well. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or email me directly.
