Ok guys, if you've ever looked at our main pages you'll notice that Newsgab is not just about celebs and boobies; we actually carry some good news content to!
Newsgab is about normal folks like us, posting their thoughts on the latest news, in a number of different catergories, as it happens.
Being honest; getting new people on board over the last year has been pretty difficult so we are kicking off a new drive to build a team of editors who can help us grow Newsgab in this area.
Our forums are pretty busy but it's the news posts on our main pages (which will also be syndicated to our forums) that attract the most new visitors to our site.
If you a creative writer who likes to write good, original content and fancy winning a cash prize whilst helping us grown and maintain the content on our site then please read on.
To Start with you need to apply to join our 'bloggers group'.
You can do this by going to your user control panel and scrolling down to the group membership option (please see pic for an indication of where this option is).
I'm looking to recruit 10 - 20 bloggers initially who can help us contribute the latest news in a number of catergories in a way that the average net user like us can appreciate .
To make things a little more interesting, we are going to run a blogging competition this month to help get things kicked off.
The best blogs posted from the date we go live with this competition will be up for cash prizes!
First Prize : $100
Second Prize : $75
Third Prize $50
(all amounts in USD)To Qualify for a 'top blog' you need to post three (3) entries in a 30 day period.
More then one of your posts can qualify (so you could submit three of your top posts and win the top three prizes = £225!)
To qualify for a prize, you will be invited to submit (what you consider to be your) best Blog entry/entries at the end of the 30 day period. after the go live date.
