Looks like we are all going to have some new competition in the domain blog industry. And I may be losing a writer. Adam Dicker announced tonight that he is paying writers up to $20 per story. Here is his description of the project
Next week we will be launching a domain industry blog.
I am looking for writers to write about:
Current events in our industry
New companies in our industry
New products in our industry
New services in our Industry
New / current tools people could use in our industry.
reviews of companies, products or services.
CCTLD and TLD related stuff.
ICANN related stories.
Juicy TRUE industry gossip will be permitted, but make sure it’s factual.
General stuff people in our industry would like to know about.
It could just be your thoughts or feelings about something related to our industry.
Basically Anything related to the domain/internet industry/technology.
No slanderous or libelous articles will be approved and/or published.
Anything factual will be permitted.
Post in here if interested and areas you feel you could discuss.
I am looking for 20 long term authors.
You will be given an author sign-up link by Monday if approved.
It will be interesting to see what happens when someone tries the TechCrunch approach to domain blogging. I would also like to announce I am looking for one more writer but pay much much less. I do take pride in the work atmosphere which is very laid back and the annual Holiday party is off the hook. Please see Chris for my references but please don’t tell him about Dicker’s job openings. So what do you think. Will the project succeed?
