Bird Watching Site Needs An Hourly Writer Long Term
We publish several high-profile websites, one of which is a bird watching website.
We are looking to hire a bird-loving writer to write content such as:
7 Owls You’ll Find In Ohio
13 Hummingbirds To Watch For In California
How To Keep Squirrels Out Of Your Bird Feeder
We’d love to hire someone who is a true bird watching hobbyist, that can educate our audience in a relatable and fun way.
This is an ongoing project since we’re regularly publishing new content on our site. It certainly has the potential to be a long term project and may include opportunities to update existing content in the future.
You must enjoy writing and be very good at it. Anyone can write a boring review. We require the write-ups to be engaging, detailed, helpful, personable, humorous with a touch of snarkiness. All in all, they must entertain as much as they inform.
We don’t need you to “do SEO” but we’ll assign you topics based on a keyword that we plan to rank for in Google. From there, we’ll give you some simple strategies on how to build an outline and make sure your article is meeting the writer’s expectations.
Word counts will vary and be provided with each assignment, but our articles are typically 1,000 – 2,000 words, with some exceptions for long-form content.
You must have (or be willing to open) a Paypal account for invoicing.
You can work wherever you want. However, you must be a native English speaker and be able to write for a primarily US audience.
Ideally, you can complete 3 to 5 articles per week. The first batch may take a bit longer as you get up to speed.
(We are also open to people who can handle even more articles per week)
$15 USD per hour.
You will be paid weekly by sending us an invoice via Paypal for all of the work you completed that week.
This is a freelancer position.
DELIVERY OF ARTICLES
You will be assigned articles via Asana, complete them in Frase and then assign them to our editor. (We’ll show you how this works, and it’s a very simple process).
The position starts immediately.

PLEASE NOTE that we read your application answers to assess writing capability. If it’s boilerplate and boring, we’ll probably not reply.
Write the application so that it’s interesting – show us your writing chops. We’d also love to hear about your interest/experience with bird watching.
