The powers that be at SB Nation have been pushing for each NFL blog to recruit additional writer(s), so this is the official announcement that a writing position is available for Dawgs By Nature.
Unlike when we have recruited in the past, the requirements are much more strict this time. The major requirement is that you must be able to make at least 20-25 posts per month. That is a big commitment, but it is still reasonable as it is less than one post per day, on average. Other recommended requirements include the following:
- Ability to write grammatically sound articles, without the need of an editor (perfection is not needed; you can see that based on the numerous errors you'll see in my posts from time-to-time).
- Passion for the writing/talking about the Browns without having to be motivated by pay. When I started DBN in 2006, I never intended for it to be some "get rich" scheme. There is a small stipend associated with this position, with an emphasis on small.
- In terms of length, the articles do not need to be of column-length for every post. Generally, posts should be over 150 words at a minimum.
Preference will be given to people who (1) have been regular/active users on DBN, and (2) have a good grasp of the community standards in general. Please contact me at email@example.com if you are interested in applying. No special resume is necessary, but a couple of sentences explaining why you're interested, if you feel you can make the commitment, ideas you have, etc. might be beneficial.
