Have you always dreamed about being a video game blogger? Have you longed for the day where you wrote about gaming and there were actually crowds of people just clamoring to hear your opinion?
With a little work, that fantasy can become a reality. We’re looking for writers, and you may be just the one we’re looking for.
But it’s not going to be easy.
We’re not saying that to scare you away, we’re saying it to make sure we don’t waste our time with someone who is going to half-ass their shot at primetime. We’re looking for dedicated, passionate gamers. We want to fill our staff with gamers who also know how to write rather than journalists who are assigned to write about games.
If you’re a gamer and that interests you then there’s something you should know about blogging. It’s not as easy as it looks. We’re not looking for people that are just going to post once a month when they have an axe to grind. We want active, dedicated writers who are going to be on top of all the latest gaming news and share it with our readers. All writers (except reviewers) are required to submit AT LEAST an average of one new article per day to stay on the staff).
This is not a paid gig (though it can turn into one if you’re a dedicated and quality writer). It is, however, a great way to get an audience that reads what you write, and if you become one of our most active and successful writers you’ll be privy to perks like review copies of games and press passes to gaming events.
If this all sounds interesting to you send us a message via the site’s contact form or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info:
We’re currently looking to fill the following positions
We need people to relay the news that we don’t break to our readers. This is the kind stuff you see on all the big games sites, re-written for our readers.
Like the Daily News Blogger, but focusing on things relating to the Xbox 360.
Like the Daily News Blogger, but focusing on things relating to the PS3.
Like the Daily News Blogger, but focusing on things relating to the Wii U.
Like the Daily News Blogger, but focusing on things relating to the Nintendo 3DS.
Like the Daily News Blogger, but focusing on things relating to the PS Vita.
Whether it be reviewing a game that you bought and played or getting an early copy of a game from us, we need reviewers who love critquing stuff!
Do you play a ton of Call of Duty? Halo? Battlefield? DotA? Regardless of the game, if you play it almost exclusively and want to write about it then this is the spot for you. Game Specialists are writers that are only responsible for covering one or a subset of games, but who are expected to dive much further into those games than a typical game blog would. This goes well beyond the typical feature-list type article that you’d normally see on a game site. We want people who are passionate about a particular game and can dive deep into its intricacies with articles you’d normally see on a fan forum for the game rather than a big game site.
Do people get annoyed with you for being a grammar nazi on internet forums? This might be the spot for you then. We need someone to proofread articles and provide the writers with feedback for improving the grammar and style of the article.
Interact with publisher PR contacts to get our writers game review copies, press passes, interviews, etc. I’m tired of doing this myself.
