I am looking for a writers to help me write for a new activities and events blog. The blog will be part of a new website that allows users to post and search for activities and events taking place across the UK similar to Eventbrite. Therefore, it may be easier for you to write if you are from or live in the UK.
I have come up with a list of around 50 blog titles for you to choose and blog about. But if there is something you enjoy writing about and is relevant to what this blog, then you are also free to come up with your own blog topics (please check with me first before you do so). But in general, the common theme with all posts will be to offer some insightful or useful information to the reader and also suggest things to do and how to get involved.
For example, on my website, there are some activities listed by climbing centres. A possible blog post could be "A Beginners Guide to Indoor Rock Climbing". In this blog post, I would expect some useful information about how newcomers can get involved in climbing, some tips, benefits etc... and then have some links in the post to other climbing websites and links to the listed activity pages on my website.
Another example post could be "Top 10 Things to Do with Kids in Edinburgh". In which case, you would introduce Edinburgh, and what interesting things there are to do as a family in the capital.
My goal is to generate traffic via the blog to help improve the search ranking of the website and to increase the visitor count. Therefore, any writer that applies for this job should be an experienced blogger and proficient in SEO. This is a new website, so increasing traffic is key!
Since the target audiences are both the general public and event organisers/small businesses, blog posts may be targeted as such.
I will pay a fixed fee of $20 for each 400-500 word blog article. If the blog posts makes for an interesting read and fulfils the requirements outlined above, then I will continue hiring you to write for me. :)
I plan to make 2 to 3 blog postings per week. No images will be required, and all you need to do will be to send me your written pieces in word format.
All written pieces must be original and of your own work... as this will be checked.
I will disclose the website and blog topics/titles when you apply.
