Three Great Job Boards for Blogger and Freelance Writing Jobs
Whether you are a blog owner, blogger or a freelance writer, it’s important to find quality work. Through the use of blogging and writer job boards, you can find writers and blogs that match your interests and writing abilities.
There are plenty of job boards out there, but many of them are not worth your time. I’ve done a lot of outsourcing and hiring of writers, and it’s always tough to find a quality writer that sticks around or is consistent with their work. Using the right job boards will make the process a lot easier and more effective.
Below I have featured three of the top blogger and writing forums I recommend using. Each of them is unique in their own way, but also effective in getting a lot of exposure and responses to your job postings.
Blogging.org Content Marketplace
One of the best ways to generate new and original content for your blog is through an online writing marketplace. Blogging.org is probably exactly what you are looking for. Once you join the website, you can write articles and get paid, or you can submit an article job, which would open the listing to all writers on the marketplace. Once your article is written, you can preview it and accept or deny it based on its quality. From this point on you can post the article on your site and leave feedback for the writer.
ProBlogger Job Board
It would only be fitting that one of the largest and most successful blogs out there, has its own job board. I’ve used the ProBlogger job board several times now and have always been happy with the response from my listings. After posting a job, you will get a lot of responses, so you will have to weed through the quality ones and follow up with each directly. Depending on your listing you can expect around 10-25 responses.
There is a $50 fee to list for 30 days, but it’s worth it in my opinion, simply because you are reaching a blogger audience and will get responses within hours of listing. Your listing on the job board will also be tweeted out to the 135,000 followers of @problogger on twitter. https://jobs.problogger.net/
Blogging Pro Job Board
Another large blog with its own blogger job board is BloggingPro. They have a nice setup and you have the options to post a job for free, or upgrade to a featured listing, which will give you a highlighted listing and sent out to the 17k+ subscriber feed. The price for a featured listing is $25 for 30 days. https://bloggingpro.com/jobs/
WordPress.net Job Board
WordPress Jobs is a job board all about WordPress. From upgrading and programmer jobs, to designing and writing, this job board covers everything relating to WordPress. There is no cost to post a job listing on jobs.wordpress.net, and your listing will stay active on the site for 21 days. https://jobs.wordpress.net/
Writing Opportunities Outside of Blogging
While the concept of writing content for other websites and blogs is common practice, there are actually many other freelance writing opportunities available as well. In addition to each of the writing job boards above, you may also find writing opportunities on sites that specialize in providing college essays for sale. With there being a higher demand for writing services than ever before, it seems like all content writing jobs are looking to be outsourced in one way or another. No matter what reason or method you are using to accomplish this task, make sure you go with a reliable solution and that your work is never considered as plagiarism.
When posting on any of the job boards above, it’s important to select an individual that writes in proper English and passionate about your blog topic. In each listing, I usually include a monthly salary that I will pay out to the blogger, along with full details on how often the blog will need to be updated and what they will be writing about. I will then hire one or two individuals from the applications I receive. From previous job listings, I have found that some writers are so passionate about a topic that some will write for free… these are the best type of bloggers out there, as they truly dedicate themselves to the writing and success of your sites.
Make sure to take the time to contact each applicant and ask for any writing and blog examples they may have, and if they are familiar with WordPress, or whatever software or cms you use.
