We have realized that we have forgotten an important aspect of Christian books: having an accessible Christian book news site. The only problem is, we have to focus all our attentions on writing book reviews, so we need some help.
We are looking for someone who is good at surfing the net and finding bits and pieces of Christian book news. We want someone who is thorough, responsible and professional. We want someone who knows what they are talking about and can scour author's sites, blogs, and twitters for info.
1. Accountability to the blog
We don't want someone who is only going to post news a few times a year whenever they feel like it. We want someone serious and responsible.
2. Interest in the line of work
We don't want someone who is half hearted. If you are, than don't even think about doing this. We want someone who likes compiling and researching news. In order for the results to be good, the effort has to be good. And in order for the effort to be good, the attitude must be positive toward the line of work.
3. Good Internet access
This shouldn't be too hard these days to find. Whether you have to go to friend's house or a cafe, just find good Internet access. Without it, the job will come off as sloppy.
4. A thorough and un-biased view
We don't want typos or mis-information. We want the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
5. Free time
Sorry, you won't get a salary with this job. You have to be willing to this out of the goodness of your heart. Remember, we don't get paid for what we do either.
6. Communication with us
If something's going on in your life, you need to tell us about it so we can work something out. If you're having any trouble with posting news, don't hesitate to talk with us via email.
Things You Will Need to Stay on Top Of:
Book release dates
When authors are coming to certain areas
Book and author contests
Happenings in authors' lives
We would like to get this news blog off the ground as soon as possible, so if you think you're cut for this line of work, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
