Wanted: 1 or 2 Writers for DaTechGuy's Magnificent Seven

One of the best things that has hap­pened to DaT­e­chguy­blog has been the addi­tion of my Mag­nif­i­cent Seven Writers.

They have brought per­spec­tive and knowl­edge to this site and has, at least in my opin­ion made a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence to our readers.

As time has passed sev­eral of our writ­ers have moved on to big­ger and bet­ter things, oth­ers have decided to take a break from blog­ging while still oth­ers due to their busy lives will con­tribute the odd post but do not con­tribute to the site regularly.

The time has come to get a few more peo­ple on the reservation.

I am look­ing for one or two new Mag­nif­i­cent Seven writers.

What you will be expected to do: You will be expected to write a weekly 250 word piece for an assigned day. Depend­ing on your needs I might accept a biweekly piece. The topic of said piece will be left entirely to you but will be expected to com­ply with the fol­low­ing guidelines:

  1. Accu­racy. If you’re writ­ing opin­ion say it’s opin­ion, if you’re writ­ing fact, say it’s fact. If you are quot­ing oth­ers, (or your own blog) pro­vide links. Pho­tos & videos are wel­come but remem­ber I am a Catholic & a mem­ber of the Knight of Colum­bus so no nudity or sex acts etc. Also don’t get me sued.
  2. Out­look. This is a con­ser­v­a­tive blog and I’m a con­ser­v­a­tive Catholic. If you want to push lib­er­al­ism, gay mar­riage, trans­gen­derism, jihad, abor­tion etc I don’t want you. Fur­ther as pre­vi­ously said I’m a Knight of Colum­bus, if you want to attack the Catholic Church, you can do it on your own site how­ever, there is a dif­fer­ence between attack and cri­tique as long as you are on the cri­tique side of the line we’re fine. Fur­ther­more if you are of a dif­fer­ent faith and you want to expound on your belief sys­tem I have no objec­tion as long as you make it clear that these are you’re opin­ions not mine.

  3. Honor: My name and rep­u­ta­tion are on this site, there is a line between vul­gar­ity and being provoca­tive, don’t cross it, don’t be dishonorable.

  4. Pay: You will get a flat rate of .02 per word based on a 250 word piece. You are allowed to go over 250 words but the max you will get per piece is based on 250 words.

  5. You are more than wel­come to link back to your own blog or site in your pieces and or pro­mote your books or writ­ings else­where, I would hope you would do the same here.

Pref­er­ence will be given to peo­ple who have a body of work I’ve seen and to exist­ing con­ser­v­a­tive bloggers.

If you have an inter­est drop me a line here, or leave a com­ment be aware that I some­times get behind on my email as there is a lot of it.

If you have a rec­om­men­da­tion feel free to leave that as well.

Update: We have now fin­ished tak­ing appli­ca­tions, now in the process of inter­views, I’ll be updat­ing with details in new posts on the subject.

One of the best things that has happened to DaTechguyblog has been the addition of my Magnificent Seven Writers.

They have brought perspective and knowledge to this site and has, at least in my opinion made a positive difference to our readers.

As time has passed several of our writers have moved on to bigger and better things, others have decided to take a break from blogging while still others due to their busy lives will contribute the odd post but do not contribute to the site regularly.

The time has come to get a few more people on the reservation.

I am looking for one or two new Magnificent Seven writers.

What you will be expected to do: You will be expected to write a weekly 250 word piece for an assigned day. Depending on your needs I might accept a biweekly piece. The topic of said piece will be left entirely to you but will be expected to comply with the following guidelines:

  1. Accuracy. If you’re writing opinion say it’s opinion, if you’re writing fact, say it’s fact. If you are quoting others, (or your own blog) provide links. Photos & videos are welcome but remember I am a Catholic & a member of the Knight of Columbus so no nudity or sex acts etc. Also don’t get me sued.
  2. Outlook. This is a conservative blog and I’m a conservative Catholic. If you want to push liberalism, gay marriage, transgenderism, jihad, abortion etc I don’t want you. Further as previously said I’m a Knight of Columbus, if you want to attack the Catholic Church, you can do it on your own site however, there is a difference between attack and critique as long as you are on the critique side of the line we’re fine. Furthermore if you are of a different faith and you want to expound on your belief system I have no objection as long as you make it clear that these are you’re opinions not mine.

  3. Honor: My name and reputation are on this site, there is a line between vulgarity and being provocative, don’t cross it, don’t be dishonorable.

  4. Pay: You will get a flat rate of .02 per word based on a 250 word piece. You are allowed to go over 250 words but the max you will get per piece is based on 250 words.

  5. You are more than welcome to link back to your own blog or site in your pieces and or promote your books or writings elsewhere, I would hope you would do the same here.

Preference will be given to people who have a body of work I’ve seen and to existing conservative bloggers.

If you have an interest drop me a line here, or leave a comment be aware that I sometimes get behind on my email as there is a lot of it.

If you have a recommendation feel free to leave that as well.

 

Update:  We have now finished taking applications, now in the process of interviews, I’ll be updating with details in new posts on the subject.
