How can you make money blogging? Learfielder Len found this job posting on the Journal of Sports Media blog:
“Career Sports & Entertainment, a sports marketing and PR agency in Atlanta, is looking for qualified journalism students for a program called “AT&T SEC Snapshot.” It will provide weekly coverage for SECsports.com, devoted to Olympic spring sports across the SEC. The student blogger/reporter would provide weekly articles/blogs on SECSports.com. The program is scheduled to launch in early March, so they would like to find a good candidate as soon as possible. If interested, please contact Melanie Jarrett, Career Sports & Entertainment, or 770-995-1300.”
We’ll see more of this. Good, experienced bloggers will be in demand. Can every MSM reporter blog? Some can. But years of traditional writing and reporting seems to rob some of the human voice that the best blogs have.
