Thank you for your interest in joining our team!

A bit about us - Paddleboards.com is a fairly new site that will mainly focus on SUP and gear reviews, best SUP accessories and other paddle boarding tips.

Your role as a content writer includes research, outlining, and writing full-length blog posts following our own, unique framework. We use several tools that make outlining and writing easier, and they also provide strong content and set guidelines.

The goal is to keep subscribers engaged and interested with content in the paddle board space. We strive to create the best content out there, and create content that Google likes (ex: content that ranks!).

The articles can range from complex and long (2500+ words) to shorter articles in the 1000 word range. We will provide the topics and strategy. However, if you have any ideas, I'm totally open to them!

Here is an example of one of our blog posts: https://paddleboards.com/complete-guide-to-buying-your-first-stand-up-paddle-board/

For this job posting, we will be screening 3-5 candidates by having them write one article (paid). I will either choose one candidate for 2-4 articles per week or multiple candidates. I’m looking to hire someone within one week of this job post.

We’re looking for a writer who takes pride in their work and wants to work with us on a consistent, ongoing basis.

We’re looking for a candidate who:

-Never misses deadlines

-Proven experience as a content writer
-Can communicate ideas effectively
-Is an excellent researcher
-Graciously accepts construct feedback
-Are very familiar with Google Drive
-Possess the ability to deal with changes in procedures
-Has the capability to take on more hours
-Is reasonably responsive to messaging

Don't let that scare you - I'm very easy going! There's just a lot of moving parts to this operation and a lot of team members, so one missed deadline can throw a whole line of people off.

When applying, please send an example of your work via Google Docs with edit access enabled (and/or work that you wrote that’s live on the internet).

Please also answer these questions in this order:

1. What is hyperlink?

2. Which sentence has the proper usage of they’re, there, or their:

3. Is it possible to make an image clickable?

4. If you have published any blog posts in the past, please include a link as your answer. If you have not or can not provide a link, please answer with "I can not provide an example of my work.”

5. Is bolding and italicizing important in blog articles? Why?

6. How do you determine if a piece of writing is good?

7. Describe a time when you were fact-checking and found conflicting information. How do you determine which source to trust?

8. Have you ever received negative feedback on a piece of writing that you have written? What was your response?
