Last night I was looking through Craig's List and decided to check out the job listings for writers. I was surprised at how many were looking for bloggers. There are ads for contributing writers for blogs about our baseball, basketball, and football teams, but I don't know enough about those sports to apply. There is an ad for an MMA blog. I might answer that one. I have already responded to a movie blog ad and I'm thinking about responding to an ad for a travel writer.
None of these are paying jobs. They are either listed as an intern position or state there might be earning potential in the future. As long as they don't ask me to invest anything more than a little time, I'll give it a shot and see what happens. I'm not sending anyone any money.
P.S. Am I the only one who finds the Craig's List personal ads entertaining? A little bit frightening - but entertaining. (No, I'm not meeting anyone from Craig's List.)
