The Daily Hilario: Would you like to write for WAGNH?

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans.

THAT'S TOO BAD; BUT SERIOUSLY:

So, I'm somewhat apprehensive about opening this up to a wider audience, but since I, too, got my start right where you are sitting, I figured we should give it a shot.

Here's what we're looking for:  somebody to help us do "the news."  And by the news I mostly mean helping us keep on top of all the rumors and breaking news.  If you've been around WAGNH for a while, and our ideal candidate would have been, you should be familiar with our m.o. regarding these sorts of posts.  We're not really looking for super in-depth analysis — FanPosts are always open for anyone to contribute and we do try to highlight the best — we need help with the short 150-300 word posts about the latest developments regarding our players and our transfer targets.

As mentioned above, our ideal candidate will have been around for a while, is active on the site, and knows most of our day-to-day operations and habits.   I'd assume we're all Chelsea fans, so I probably don't have to specify that.  Since we're looking to fill a gap in our coverage, I'd like the candidate to be located in England or at least in a timezone +/- 1 hour away from BST/GMT.  Obviously, you'd need to have a good-to-excellent command of the English language and have, in general, good grammar and spelling.  We're not perfect in that regard, I'm not perfect in that regard, so that's not something I can expect.  (But we do correct our mistakes when found.)

I'm thinking we'd do a short trial first and see how you fit with the rest of the team and how your work/dedication/habits are.  Possibly starting this weekend, but certainly by Monday at the latest.

To apply, simply send me an email (it's just my name at gmail.com, but you can also find it in my profile).  Tell me something to convince me to choose you.  I will choose my favorite, maybe.  If you don't get chosen, it's probably not personal.  I have no idea how much interest for this may be out there (I figure with the summer break, maybe some of our younger, university-age kids might be up for this, too?), it's all just a bit of a shot in the dark.  I do have feelers out elsewhere, too, so this is all rather free-form.  But if you convince me, and you're good, the sky is the limit (not really, but you'll have fun at least).
