Looking for Cobloggers

image

Here at Brewing Up Books, we’re looking for 1-3 new cobloggers and co-reviewers!

Before we jump into the exciting search for cobloggers, we have a bit of bad news: Unfortunately, Sarah has decided that, headed into senior year of high school, she won’t have enough time to dedicate toward reading and posting on a blog.  While she won’t be posting here on the blog moving forward, she will be updating and posting reviews on her Goodreads account, so that would be an excellent way to stay in contact with her.  We’re all sad to see her go and wish her the best of luck for the future!


On a more positive note and as the title of this post may suggest, we are searching for some additional cobloggers and reviewers.  With both Megan and I starting school next week, we want to ensure that Brewing Up Books remains active and continues to post fresh, new content.  We didn’t think we could tackle this on our own, so we decided to turn to you for help!

What is the difference between a coblogger and a co-reviewer?

A coblogger is someone who writes a variety of posts, such as reviews, features, discussions, and interviews.  A co-reviewer, on the other hand, posts only reviews.  While both are expected to post regularly, a reviewer will have a less strenuous schedule than a coblogger, posting only once or twice per week.  Therefore, if you are worried about time commitments, perhaps you should consider applying as a reviewer.

Coblogger Requirements

  • Must have an active Twitter, Goodreads, and email account for communication purposes.  If you do not already have these accounts, you will be asked to create them if you receive the position.
  • Must be easily accessible (ie. responding to emails within 48 hours).
  • Must be able to speak/write English, as all posts on our blog are written in English.
  • Must be willing to post 2-4 times per week.  At least one of these posts should be a review.
  • Reviews must be a minimum of 450 words.
  • Posts should be scheduled 24 hours in advance.
  • You can be a partial or full contributor to another blog, but you may not post the same review, discussion, etc. to multiple blogs.
  • No prior blogging experience necessary!

Co-Reviewer Requirements

  • Must have an active Twitter, Goodreads, and email account for communication purposes. If you do not already have these accounts, you will be asked to create them if you receive the position.
  • Must be easily accessible (ie. responding to emails within 48 hours).
  • Must be able to speak/write English, as all posts on our blog are written in English.
  • Must be willing to post a review 1-2 times per week.  All posts will be reviews.
  • Reviews must be a minimum of 500 words.
  • Reviews should be scheduled 24 hours in advance.
  • You can be a partial or full contributor to another blog, but you may not post the same review to multiple blogs.

  1. Yelp – I’m in senior year as well! As much as I would love to help out, I’m pretty sure my ahead of the game is only going to last for so long (read: a few weeks). Best of luck finding new cobloggers and reviewers! 🙂
