I cannot tell a lie.
I even admitted to my co-workers that when I was looking for a job, PopSugar would have been a dream. (Right after The Penny Hoarder, of course.)
This big-time media brand (100 million monthly visitors a month?!) covers celebrities, fashion, fitness, beauty, love, moms, living, career, food and news — really, it’s everything you need. It even has videos — like this no-bake s’mores pie.
Now that I’m fangirling (yes, a verb in my book) and drooling, let’s talk about the job.
How to Become a Part-Time Writer for PopSugar
PopSugar is in the business of viral content about any of the above subjects. But right now, it’s looking for writers obsessed with #trending topics, TV, movies and current events.
“We’re particularly interested in writers who watch — or are willing to watch — any of the following shows: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ ‘Outlander’ and ‘Supernatural,’” the listing states.
“Willing to watch…” Twist my arm, PopSugar.
You should be able to work a flexible schedule with some evening availability. You also need to be able to quickly turn around clean, witty, clickable words.
How Can I Become a Writer for PopSugar?
All you have to do is send in a short intro about who you are and why you want to write for the site.
You’ll probably want to include a little tidbit about your obsession with any of the above shows.
Think: I’m so obsessed with “Orange Is the New Black” that I watch each newly released season in 24 hours. I don’t leave my bed, basically.
That’s just an example — not me, of course. (*wink*)
You’ll also want to include three samples of your work and details on your availability (evenings, weekends, number of hours per week…).
