I get it from my Mimi — my chocolate addiction, I mean.
In fact, Hershey’s Kisses always reminds me of her. When I was being an ornery kid, she’d dig through her cluttered purse to find a few. Even when melted, I savored each one’s flavor.
And you can’t eat just one, which is probably why I still have an issue.
So when I stumbled upon this mouthwatering job, I really needed to share it with my fellow chocolate-lovers.
Delysia Chocolatier is looking for freelance chocolate writers.
Can it be?
More About Delysia Chocolatier
Delysia Chocolatier is an Austin-based chocolate shop — but it’s a bit more fancy than Willy Wonka’s.
It specializes in chocolate and Parisian-style, handmade truffles (my mouth just spritzed) made with “only the finest ingredients.”
Up against hundreds of other chocolatiers, owner and chocolatier chef Nicole Patel was voted a Top 10 Chocolatier and Confectioner in America by International Chocolate Salon and TasteTV.
Almost as beautiful as the chocolates themselves is the company’s blog. Recent articles range from a Q&A with Patel, entertaining tips for fall and a guide to supporting local farmers.
Even so, Patel aims to amp up the content — with your help.
More On Writing About Chocolate
As a freelance blogger, you’re expected to work independently and set your own deadlines to maintain the blog.
“The successful candidate will research and write articles in a conversational, engaging style,” the Freelance Writing Jobs listing states.
You have the freedom to write about anything and everything chocolate, including product highlights, food trends, holiday trends, historical stories and even weddings.
Pay rate is listed as TBD. I reached out to Patel for more information, and I’ll update this when I hear back — and when she’s washed the chocolate off her hands (ugh, the life!).
How To Become A Chocolate Writer
Email Patel at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Blog Writer Application.”
You’ll need to include your resume, links to three published blog posts (preferably from different sources — food blogs are a plus!), five blog ideas relevant to Delysia Chocolatier, a Facebook profile and Twitter handle and a website URL, if you have one.
The gig is pretty sweet, so be sure to apply before the opportunity melts away — or I eat it, probably.
