I am planning to create a magazine type of blog and I am looking for serious authors that would like to contribute to the blog. The magazine will cover a wide range of issues like Money, Sports, Technology, Lifestyle and other stuff. The magazine will look something like, Huffingtonpost. It will only happen once I can gather enough authors, (at least 5 to begin with). If you have a blog of your own or taking up an education in journalism, this would be an excellent opportunity for you. The reason why I made this post here is because, if possible I want the authors of the blog magazine to be familiar with WordPress. Do note that you will not be paid any salary, as this is a volunteer service on your part, this is something you want to do out of passion for writing. If you are an expert on a particular subject, or have knowledge of a specific niche, you are very welcome to be an author for the blog. You need to be at least 18 years old to contribute though. When you write for the blog, you do not need to use your real name, a pen name would do just fine.
As an author, you do not have to be an expert in the English language, but sufficient enough for your readers to understand your typed articles by proof reading it. This is not a copy and paste project, original content is required. Each article you type must be at least 300 words. As this is a magazine and not a newspaper, you are required to post an article each week instead of having an article posted daily. You can contribute to any topic you like, but its best to take up a department that you enjoy writing about. It could be politics or video games, the choice is yours. If writing is not your forte, and you have a good camera, you can be a photographer for the magazine, uploading your images to the blog weekly. You can also contribute if you are into sketching comics. The blog is still in its planning stages, so I am open to suggestions. On my part as the Administrator of the blog, I will contribute at least 5 articles a week, and be promoting the blog through free and paid avenues. If you have any suggestions or queries, or would like to sign up, just reply to this post or send me an email.
