We need a team of music and film bloggers for our soon to be launched blog.
The most important "skill" for this is a knowledge and love for the music and movies that we cover, so before responding to this post please go to www.BathroomWall.co.uk and have a look at what we do. Please also look at our Facebook page to see the sort of pieces that we currently share from other pages. The idea of our new blog is to post the same sort of pieces just from our own blog rather than from others. The blog will cover pretty much anything related to the type of music we put on T-shirts and to the new section of movie T-shirts that will be launched soon. We also have book and TV related T-shirts and so will also need regular posts on those too. Please DO NOT reply to this unless you really, truly understand the music - we will spot fakers or those claiming to be able to "write about anything" - more to the point, our customers and social media followers will spot you. The basis of our success is that our customers know that we are music fans just like them and we will not risk that for anything.
Music genres: Rock (mainly classic rock - this is by far our biggest and most important genre), blues, punk, country (Cash, Jennings, Haggard etc rather than Brooks or Underwood) , soul (traditional/classic, NOT hiphop or modern r&b), metal, singer/songwriter, jazz, reggae/ska
Movies genres: Horror, Sci-fi, cult, kung-fu
TV - NOT soaps or reality. Quality comedy and drama. Please look at the range of designs we offer to see the audience.
Literary - mainly both old and modern "Classics" Please look at the range of designs we offer to see the audience.
Posts won't have to be long - ideally only a couple of hundred words each. Topics will be a mix of relevant news stories and random posts that will be of interest to our customers. We want this to be a long term project and over time we need to build up a working trust where you'll just be able to post directly without checking with us first. Content that includes embedded Youtube videos is very important (they perform well when linked to from Facebook and Twitter). You can do list pieces, Top Tens, retrospectives, photographs, reviews, news etc. So long as it is on topic, positive (we have a strict no second chances banning policy on all trolls on our social media pages - so nothing likely to encourage them), relevant and written in fluent English (English English NOT American English - so remember to use Ss rather than Zs etc)
All posts need to be able to related to at least one T-shirt that we sell and all posts will need to be suitably tagged.
As you will appreciate, for any blog to be successful it needs regular posts, so there will be plenty work and because the posts will be relatively short, you will easily be able to fit us around other projects.
A word of warning: While re-writing news article is necessary, we will not accept the wholesale lifting of other writers' work. You must post original content. Like trolls on our social media pages, there are no second chances.
So if you think that you would be a good fit for our team then get in touch with a few ideas of what you will be able to bring to the site. Please can you also send us links to examples of your work.
