The best applicant submission for us to consider would be in the form of a blog address. This not only gives us a good example of your work and style of writing, but it also demonstrates (hopefully) a track record of being able to blog on a regular basis. Ideally, this would mean little or no additional work on your part other than posting your work on a second blog. We're primarily looking for original content, although we'd happily take book reviews and links posts as well.
What this means:
- We're offering a sort of guest-post partnership with the possibility of becoming a regular contributor.
- We're looking for an original post about once a week. Of course we're flexible with vacations and such.
- Hopefully you'll get a larger (or at least different) audience for your content.
- You may have the option of free books for review on the blog.
What this doesn't mean:
- That you have to drop your current blog. You are welcome to cross-post any content written for CIC on your personal blog as I have continued to do ever since I joined.
- That a guest-posting partnership automatically leads to a regular contributor on the blog.
