Circumstances are forcing me to vacate my position as lead editor of this site. Really enjoyed my time here even though the football season hasn’t exactly gone as planned. That Michigan State game? I don’t even want to talk about it. Anyway, I’m out, so that means we have an opening here for a new lead editor. What does it take to be lead editor of a Fansided site? I won’t lie, it does take up a fair amount of your time. If you want to do the job right. Hire a full staff. Keep the site updated on a daily basis. Run a Twitter and a Facebook for the site. It’s a lot of work. But the rewards can be great if you’re willing to put in the time and energy. There’s a little money in it, via Fansided’s revenue share deal, but there’s more to it than that. There’s the fun of being part of a great team. Knowing you’ll always have technical support on hand in case something goes wrong. Just the chance to be part of a growing network. You can build up a genuine online presence, if you’re willing to really put your nose to the grindstone. If you think you have the stuff, and want to blog about the Badgers as the lead editor, fill out the application. And if you just want to be a staff writer maybe posting once a week, fill out the application too. Let them know how much you’re willing to do. Lead editors are responsible for writing at least 30 posts every month and getting 30 posts out of their staff. And there are other requirements that pop up from time to time.
Once again, thanks for reading. And whoever gets the job next, don’t let those Ohio State jerks push you around.
