Interested Bloggers:

We normally like to plan 12 articles, based on specific keyword phrases before you even begin writing, and refine them a bit along the way.

We usually help you plan out 12 stories over 6 months, (due on the 1st and 15th of each month) and then we evaluate at that point, and if you’d like to continue writing, and we do not have a waiting list for that blog position, you may continue with another 12 stories.

Here are the positions we currently have available: (once they are filled they will be removed from this page)
