    We need articles every week for Football (NFL, NCAA), Basketball (NBA, NCAA), and Baseball (MLB) seasons. Are you interested in one of these in particular?Our first choice would be to barter while we get started, but we are willing to pay for good articles. We don't have any subscriptions yet but our site should go live in July and we have three sales men lined up for the service. Do you have a range of cost per article? would it per article or by circulation? Are you open to trading for traffic to your blog? We would accept article you are already writing. I am new to this so I don't know where to start. I would like to see some of your work. I am very open to length of each article. I am guessing 500-600 words. As to subjects, I am looking for opinion about various teams/conferences. There are no real guidelines, the topic/sport/team would be up to you but subject to approval. I would want the topic to be current and relevant. Picks will be part of the newsletter provided by our handicappers. I am willing to give you full credit and copyright as well as a link to your blog. Eventually I would like to market our writer as an added benefit to our site, which gives us more credibility and you more traffic as well as income from the adwords on your blog. So, long term, this job can pay as much as you want it to.

    Your sarcasm is touching. If you aren't serious please don't waste my time.

    You would like to see work? We would like to see English.

    At least you understand the pay thing, though.

    "So, long term, this job can pay as much as you want it to."

    That's almost as good as "Traffic to Your Blog."

    If by "Traffic to Your Blog" you mean one of your associates will be driving through traffic to the coffee shop at which I write my Blog to hand me a bag of money, then YES!!!

    Guys, guys, guys. Come on now.

    If we can't be serious, we shouldn't waste the guys time. It's very valuable you know. I mean, he does have his own web site and all.

    Locked, on principle. I can only put up with so many "no pay but fill your resume!" startup Web site job offerings on this board. If you're going to bring that jive in here, at least make your ad readable and have a thick enough skin to handle the discussion.
