Seeking Grammar Gents and Byline Babes
By Krissy Dolor, Jill of All Trades/Certified eFlirter
As someone with dual title, part of my job entails working with clients and helping them out with their dating lives. But the support isn’t always done one-on-one; our blog is another outlet for those who need a little help — or just some extra words of encouragement — when dating online. From advice on how to answer tough date questions to dishing our top picks for kissable lip balms, our Copy Cuties are here to help.
This year we won About.com’s Readers Choice Award for Best Dating Blog. And now (appropriately on National Punctuation Day), we’re looking to expand the eFlirt Expert editorial team. Wordsmiths and grammar geeks apply within! While we have many ladies to dish on dating deets, we’re looking for some dude perspective. Whether you’re straight, gay or bi, if you want to share some insight on dating online — including thoughtful advice based on your experiences — we want to hear from you!
Don’t worry ladies, we still want to hear from you, too. After all, everyone has different online dating adventures, and if your accompanying advice is solid, we want your byline on our blog.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to be a part of our editorial team, wow us with an original (i.e. never published anywhere, not even on your personal Tumblr or Blogger account) dating advice post that fits the style of our blog with explicit tips, whether they’re bulleted, numbered, bolded, or otherwise called out in a succinct way. Posts can deal with both online and offline help, and should be written in the same tone as our other blog posts — think light and fun with a hint of sass (or for the fellas, amicable snark). Posts should be between 250 and 450 words and should include a fun, SEO-friendly headline. Don’t forget to invite readers to interact with a question at the end!
Email your writing sample as an attached Word doc to contact [@] eflirtexpert.com with the subject eFlirt Expert Writing Sample. Please include a short cover letter explaining why you’d be a perfect fit for our editorial team. Resumes preferred, but not mandatory, and only one post per submission, please.
We can’t wait to see what you come up. Who knows — we might be toasting to your sample post going live at our next NYC Copy Cutie Cocktails!
