Terrific Opportunity for Cubs Fans

    Attention Cubs Fans/Writers

    As you may or may not know, I also own the website AllCubs.com. We've got a nice community of regulars over there, and I'd like to grow that more in 2007. Originally I started the site with the idea of a community approach for authors, and recruited about 12 people. We are now down to one regular poster (though Michael does a fantastic job). I would like to find some more writers as the season approaches.

    Here are the qualifications:

    - You write well. Maybe you're a journalism/English major, maybe you have done some cool stuff on the web already, maybe you just got skills. Prove that you can write well.

    - You're not looking for money. AllCubs doesn't make any money. If it does one day, I will pay the authors. But right now the main benefit to a writer would be an audience of hundreds or even thousands per day. A nice opportunity to build a sportswriting resume in my opinion.

    - You honestly plan to give the site two posts per week of at least a few paragraphs.

    - Something that will make you stand out as a Cubs blogger. There are a ton of Cubs blogs out there, so I'd like a fresh take if possible.

    If this interests you, write me at allcubs@gmail.com explaining your qualifications. I have to apologize in advance for not replying to all of the emails. Thanks.

    So essentially you are being hired to post on a message board for free? Yeah, "terrific."

    Indiansnetwork, do you offer a medical plan, in case I need a prescription? They can get pretty pricey.

    Why do I not see this as being an issue?

    Do you have to be a fan or can you hate the Cubs and still qualify?

    I wonder if there's an allcubs thong.

    The Cubs quit on the fans every year, why not a little payback in that respect?
