Seeking Dodger fans/writers to be contributors to Feelin' Kinda Blue

I've maintained this blog for almost 4 1/2 years on my own. With life being, well, life, it might be time to call on some help. So, if you've ever wanted to write for a well-established Dodger blog, this might be for you.

I'm looking for one or two Dodger/baseball fans who are passionate about the team and writing about the team. While I write a lot about prospects, you are free to write about whatever you want (within reason, of course). I am looking for someone who could write game recaps (gamers), ready for publishing immediately after the game ends. I'd like to have every game covered, but I also understand life happens and it may not be possible to do so. Mainly, I'm looking for more content on the site, and I know there are Dodger fans out there who want to express themselves.

Requirements

  • Background in writing
  • Ability to use Blogger CMS
  • Ability to write breaking news articles
  • Ability to write detailed, thought-provoking articles
  • Ability to analyze Dodger baseball
  • Ability to research desired topics
  • Ability to express opinion(s) with research to support
  • Ability to adhere to style guide
  • Ability to communicate clearly and quickly
  • Ability to use social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.)
  • Ability to use Creative Commons to enhance articles (i.e. Flickr, Wikimedia Commons for photos)

Desired skills (but not required)

  • Degree/training in journalism, English or related field
  • Knowledge of AP Style
  • Knowledge of Dodger farm system
  • Knowledge of sabermetrics
  • Audio and video editing
  • Photography
  • Ability to attend games (MLB or minor league)

-----

All submissions will be subject to editing by myself, but I won't change your voice or what you're trying to stay (mostly for grammar/style/etc.).

Available positions are unpaid (unfortunately). If the website traffic were to increase, perhaps there could be some revenue sharing down the road. This blog gets anywhere from 17,000-40,000 pageviews per month.

If you are interested, please send a resume and at least two (2) writing samples to feelinkindablue@gmail.com. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me via email or on Twitter (@FeelinKindaBlue).

Deadline to apply is Jan. 10. Thank you for your interest.
