    Hi All,

    BensGolf.com was established one month ago and currently has about 30-40 unique visitors per day, steadily increasing.

    Some topics that we are looking for coverage:

    Covering current PGA & European Tour tournaments
    Fed Ex Cup coverage
    Solheim Cup
    Opinion related articles (the more controversial the better)

    Keyword Targeting Campaign: We are currently targeting traffic for the following keywords and are populating the site with articles relating to the below:

    Golf Clubs the Pros Use
    Best Golfers of All Time
    Best Golf Courses

    We currently have one paid writer who contributes 1 article every Sunday evening. We’re looking for 2 writers who can contribute at least 2 articles per week.

    Pay is $60/month.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Sorry my mistake: Pay is $60/month for 1 article a week, not 2.

    so approximately $15/article.

    Hey Stitch,

    Thanks for your reply, I'll take it with a bit of tongue 'n cheek.

    I'm simply offering what I can afford and I apologize if that doesn't meet your level of pay.

    Where would you like people to send their stuff?

    Hey, where else can you write from your couch after you've read what people who are at the event have already written?

    You have between 30 and 40 unique visitors a day and are offering money? Bless you, and good luck.

    @NQLBLG - if you're familiar with wordpress then I can enable a writers account for you and you would just upload content via the wordpress platform. If not, just .doc format to my email is fine.

    @Hank_Scorpio - Surely you're not insinuating that all good writing must come from 1st hand experience and independent of other works? (although unrelated to Golf) MG Siegler wrote an absolutely beautiful piece today for techcrunch on Steve Jobs resigning and used other writers work as inspiration and reflection.

    @JPst - I won't be quitting my day job anytime soon, but the site is only 4 weeks old and on a micro budget. The good news is I made 71 cents in revenue yesterday. lol
