Looking for Contributing Writers and Guest Bloggers

 I hope it's OK to post this here without breaking any group rules.

I'm looking for talented writers to help me with my blog. If you're interested, please contact me.

*EDIT  05/08/12*  I've had a lot of interest lately, so I thought I'd be a little more specific about what I'm looking for.  P.O.V. is an opinion-commentary blog/ezine.  It's written by women for an almost exclusively female audience.  We focus on current events, trends, social issues, politics and pop culture.  We also accept book, movie and television reviews, poetry and book excerpts.

Currently, there are three writers besides myself.  We're a not for profit so I can't afford to pay, but feel free to use your posts as writing samples, list P.O.V. as your employer (if you write for us regularly) and to use me as a professional reference.  Our goal is to become an established online publication.

If you're interested in writing for us, please check out the writing guidelines for both guest bloggers and contributing writers.  We're a little picky but we're looking for quality.  If it's something you'd like to pursue, either fill out the form on the site or send me a PM here on Cafemom so we can discuss further.

Thanks and I hope to be talking to you soon.

*EDIT 05/09/12*  Since this is an election year we're looking for women who want to talk about their views on issues that affect women.  Also looking to interview anyone who is socially or politically active.

It's ok momma, we encourage this as long as we don't put any personal information here because this is an open forum for CM non members and non CM members who might find this post through google. Let me ask you how does the writing work? Do we get paid?

 No, sorry, I can't pay.  I don't make money off of my blog.   Here is the ad I put in my blogging groups if you'd like more info:

I'm the author of a blog called P.O.V. (http://www.povblog.net/). P.O.V. is an opinion piece on current events, issues, celebrities, trends, parenthood.

Recently, I haven't gotten busier with work commitments and am I'm having trouble keeping up with my blog. I own the URL and am afraid I'll lose readers if I only post periodically. I'd like to keep adding fresh content. I'm hoping to find some contributing writers who can help provide fresh content and keep readers interested and coming back. In other words, I'd like to turn my blog into a mini e-zine.

I already have two people who have said they would help, but I'm looking for more. Writers need to be able to contribute once per month minimum, four times maximum. There is no pay for this position (my blog is not-for-profit). I will, however, be starting a contributing writer and will give you a byline for all articles you write. And I publicize all P.O.V. posts on Facebook and Twitter and you'll get credit there as well. This would be good for someone who wants to build a writing portfolio.

The ideal writer is opinionated and not afraid to talk about current events, issues or celebrities. Book, music or movie reviewers are also welcome.

If you're interested, please contact me.

 Thanks.  But no worries about being busy.  I'm busy, too, which is why I need the help.
