Calling All Bloggers

Post to Twitter

The blog Girl With Pen is seeking assistance. See the job posting below.

It’s been a little quite round here this summer.  But we’re coming back in blazes come fall.  And speaking of:

Author and Founding Partner of She Writes Deborah Siegel (aka, me!) seeks a webmaster for the group blog Girl w/Pen (www.girlwpen.com) to begin in Fall 2010.  Ideal candidate is organized, self-motivated, tech savvy, and familiar with WordPress; has a strong work ethic; and is excited about feminism and media.  At present, the position is unpaid. This is a unique opportunity for a grad student or recent college grad to gain web/communication/organizational skills and work experience at the intersection of academia and the blogosphere at a highly visible feminist blog.

Webmaster duties entail:

  • dealing with any tech issues that come up for GWP’s crew of 10-ish regular monthly bloggers
  • adding new books by GWP’s bloggers to the sidebar and the “Our Books” page
  • serving as a point person for GWP bloggers for anything else that comes up
  • recruiting a new regular blogger or two here and there when current bloggers rotate out; setting up said new blogger with a bio page and showing them the ropes
  • responding to reader queries that come in through the “contact” form (the majority of which are either requests to be included on GWP’s blogroll, or press releases)
  • updating GWP’s blogroll
  • forwarding relevant press releases to the relevant GWP blogger
  • letting an author or organization know when her/his book or study has been mentioned or reviewed and sending her/him the link to the post
  • tweeting links to posts, posting on FB, Digg, other relevant social media and social bookmarking sites

Candidates will be interviewed by phone. Please send resume and contact info for 2 references to deborah@shewrites.com

(If you know someone who might be the right person for the job, please forward this post!)
