Now, You can be a Problogger Too…

Filed as News on August 23, 2006 10:55 am

Ever wonder how to get these gigs where you get paid to blog? More and more people are doing it and doing it well. With TechCrunch beginning the trend of Web 2.0-style job boards with their announcement recently of CrunchBoard, it was only a matter of time before a job board of a similar flavor would become available for bloggers.

Darren Rowse just recently announced an addition to his Problogger site called Problogger Jobboard.

I suspect this kind of move toward centralizing opportunities for bloggers to make money will really work well. Whether trhough combinations of gigs or through specialized gigs that allow a blogger to devote their full time to a single blog, I believe there is a charm to this kind of system that doesn’t quite meet the same lack of cohesiveness demonstrated by other blogs-turned-classifieds sites.

    Getting paid to share your thoughts while sitting on your own couch sounds like a great deal. Regular bloggers will be very excited by this news. The question is, however, how do you go about landing a paid blogging job.

    Becca: did you actually read what I wrote? I thought I was pretty clear ‘how to do it’. ;)
