I'll get straight to the point. I've been seeing a few too many comments and forum posts around here recently suggesting that we're not being big enough BLACKBERRY FANS with the articles we've been writing as of late. That maybe, we've lost some of the pure enthusiasm we once had.
Now, I personally disagree with this — a whole lot —but I'm one who likes to focus on solutions and not the problems. You're either growing or you're dying, right? And I always, always want to be giving our readers what they want. So with that, if you're reading this and are a HUGE BlackBerry fan and have the chops and desire to be a "blogger" around these parts, then I want to hear from you.
To get on the CrackBerry editorial team you have to meet our high expectations. Don't bother applying unless your writing is awesome, you can record and edit your own videos (and you're comfortable on video) and you're passionate and know a LOT about BlackBerry and smartphones/mobile tech. If you're a regular reader, you know the content we normally cover around here. So you know the kind of things we do. I welcome change and doing more, so I'd love somebody who has their own awesome ideas too.
To apply, send me an email at kevin @ crackberry.com. Laziness gets deleted from my inbox immediately with no reply. If you want to be part of the team, go ALL out on your application. Send me some writing samples, show me some awesome photos you took (we use a lot of nice photography on the site so you need to be able to do that too). Give me a list of some of the things you'd want to tackle if you were on the team. Attach a resumé for good measure. Heck, if you really want to win me over, make a video just for me telling me why you want the job and would rock at it and send me the youtube link (you can leave it unlisted). In terms of the economics and commitment, we'd get you going with a few contributions per week (compensation on a per post basis). That said, people who are amazing have often found a way to turn their part time efforts into the full time job of their dreams on the Mobile Nations team.
Ok, that's it. If you're up for the challenge, I look forward to your email. Hopefully we'll have a few new faces contributing around here soon!
