Hi my Inside-Out Beauties!
Being a new blogger or writer can mean a lot of hard work and very little money, at the beginning.
The truth is you can indeed make a living writing and blogging, and there are many bloggers out there proving this is true, every single day.
But, until blogs and books get profitable, many bloggers and writers take small assignments, or part time jobs, from time to time, to complete their incomes. The question is: where do they find these opportunities?
And the answer is simple: scattered all over the web!
Now, screening though every website and job board there is can be very time consuming.
But from time to time, I do it for myself.
So today, I thought I'd share my findings with you! A couple of jobs for bloggers or writers I found online this week, that I'm thinking you may find helpful.
Fingers crossed, new opportunities will come your way :)
1. U.S. & Canadian Writers Wanted!
Article Marketing Co. is a relatively new company with an aim to become the number one content producer on the internet. With this in mind, I am looking for long term writers to help us build a solid reputation.
I need experienced writers who are detail orientated, deadline driven, and who strive to provide error free articles every time that are educational and easy to read. All articles will need to follow my company's signature style guide (which is really quite simple). Ideally I want people who are prepared to research and write on any topic.

In regards to the application process: I will send over an application form which contains my style guide and some article titles to choose from which will be for a sample article. I know many people don't like this method (I don't myself as a writer), but it's the only way I can get an accurate gauge on a new applicant.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
How to applyTo apply, please send over an introduction and a couple samples of your writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Will not answer applicants from countries other than the U.S. or Canada.
