Bloggers for hire?
May 28, 2007 8:27 AM   Subscribe

I'd like to hire one, or maybe two, bloggers to keep my subject-specific weblog updated while I go on vacation (two weeks only). Is there a website that hooks up bloggers with potential clients for this purpose?

Yeah, check it out.

Yeah . . . Jobs. I would blog for you, assuming I know anything about what you blog about. And assuming you're not evil. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Wouldn't your best bet be to look among your readers first?
Presumably they are interested and relatively knowledgeable about whatever your blog is about?

Problogger.net has a job board.

In addition to the ones mentioned above, Craigslist can sometimes be useful for these things, depending on your area of focus.

I was going to say problogger.net as well.

If it's not all news blogging, and if you're on a platform that allows it (Wordpress, Movable Type, and others too probably) then you can also consider lining up a couple of posts to appear while you're away. It's a bit of work if you're already too close to your vacation, though.

Are we talking about Cycloblog, because my brother is cyclo-crazy and would probably love to pen a few posts for you. As an added bonus he's a journo, so he's at least semi-literate, and probably won't get you sued while you're away.

Thatwhichfalls has a great idea! I got my blogging job (Aeropause.com) just by being a prolific commenter who used proper grammar and spelling, and didn't troll. I also got a job offer from another blog that way, but didn't accept. Look at your commenters!
