How to not recruite bloggers

24.06.2005 - 02:57 / filled under default

MSN is searching bloggers. Great. MSN is unusable for me (we don't get along), but then again, blogging is a great idea.

I read this at Steve Rubel's site:

MSN recently put out a call to hire paid bloggers to write and edit Web sites about five broad topics: fashion/food/style, music, sports, technology, and television, MediaPost reports.

The marketing news site says MSN recruiting ads began appearing on various journalism career sites such as Mediabistro.com and JournalismJobs.com late last week.
And that is where I go hm?

They are searching a) passionate bloggers who should be b) experienced in the tools. And approach c) journalist through d) absolute classical recruiting sites.


If you want such persons, you post those job offers into the blogs! And let it spread there. Let's the job ad be searchable, so that any seriously interested person gets it through their search subscriptions.

Like "Blogger Job" or "blog job journalist" or whatever. Otherwise, they will probably "just" get writers or journalists.

Who are nice people with good work, no doubt. But I don't know many writers or journalists who like the idea of "the more the merrier" as in several blog postings a day ...
