Hello boys and girls, it’s your friendly neighborhood Retro Rambler here, and I just wanted to take a minute to let everyone know that I’m currently in the market for a couple of contributing content creators.
As you may see, I create most of the content you enjoy here on Retro Ramblings. I have some help from Eric Vardeman on a regular basis, and some contributors like Hoju Koolander from time to time. But for the most part, everything you see here was created by your’s truly. Now while it’s truly exciting to rehash and share my memories of days gone by with all of you, it certainly takes a lot of time.
Generally, I’ve tried to post multiple things a week to keep you entertained, but I fell that the work suffers if I try to put out too much. I find myself worrying about how much I’m putting out, and not how good that stuff is. So what we’re left with are pieces that are shorter and not as detailed as I would like. To fix that, I’m trying to scale back to doing just one full length piece a week. That, and curating weekly selections for the new Up All Night Theater feature that just launched this past Sunday.
So what I’m in the market for is a couple of folks who may want to try their hand at some retro writing. Whether it be doing lists based on retro stuff, or writing full length articles, nostalgia pieces, old movie or TV show reviews, or even just fact laden pieces on things you enjoyed way back when. The subject matter will be up to the creator, with the caveat being that it be retro or nostalgic in nature. There will be a few guidelines though. I’m looking for someone who will be able to commit to a weekly piece, posting on the same day each week. Eric already has Monday’s covered with his Music Monday feature, while I am posting my work on Wednesdays. Fridays I’m reserving for things like Retro on the Web and Wax Pack Flashbacks. So that leaves Tuesdays and Thursdays as the days I’m hoping to find someone to fill with their work.
I would like someone who can have their work ready and stored on the site at least 2 days in advance of their posting day, so I have time to do a little editing if needed. You’ll need to do your own photo work, but I will provide the basic info on pixel sizes and other details. Surely you don’t, but if you’re wondering what type of stuff we’re looking for, just cruise around the site for a while and you’ll get the picture.
So if you think you’d be interested in joining the team, please shoot me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll be in touch. Including a sample piece of work, along with details on what you’re interested in doing will be very helpful as well. I know some of this info will come across as a little vague, so please, ask any questions you’d like as well. Heck, you can even feel free to use this as a job search for your unemployment benefits if you wish!
Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from some of you out there.
