Figured I'd post here before going to the marketplaces as a lot of you have the capacity to talk quite a lot of bollocks (meant in the nicest way possible.) :hypo:

I run an online store in which people pay to have practical joke items sent to people they know. I've incorporated a blog to generate content which can be used and shared on the likes of Facebook & Twitter. My thought process is that we can generate content about stories (can be entirely made up) about people who have received the products. I can also create videos to back up the content.

Basically, I'm looking for somebody with an inventive imagination who can write a good short story/article (500-750 words). The basic premise will be something like the following..

Facebook Post: "This is how he reacted when he found out what she had done..." accompanied with an intriguing picture to peak interest and encourage the clickthrough. The tag line and photo are all designed to intrigue readers and get them to follow through to the website. The content is secondary but it naturally needs to be fairly engaging.

This is a paid opportunity so would be decent for anybody looking for a little extra cash on the side. I don't care how old you are, you just need to be able to write well and formulate ideas. Some will be winners, others perhaps not. You'll be paid for each article, though.

I don't know whether this interests any of you- but if it does let me know. I've tried to explain this as best as possible but if you need further clarification on what I'm trying to achieve, let me know.

The products the articles will revolve around at present are; glitter bombs, prank candles, potato in a box, poop in a box, bag of dicks, etc.

Oh wow, coincidentally I'm currently in the process of writing up my memoirs of the time I was arrested for sending my severed penis to some bitch who ruined my life forever. Don't let, the macabre opening to the tale put you off as my aunt dropped the charges in the end and we regularly engage in top notch banter about it now. Pretty much perfect for your site, I reckon. Two questions though. 1) What kind of bunse are we talking? 2) Where are you getting your dicks from?

I can churn out shite with the best of them.

Have you ever used Wordpress before? (Doesn't matter if you haven't, can still do it).

And I design Wordpress sites, so certainly know my way around them.

how much we talkin bout here

Negotiable, open to a fixed rate per post OR a profit share meaning you see dividends from the most engaging content.
Will send you a PM.

We do state on the blog that some stories may be enhanced/fictional and they are for entertainment purposes only. Creative writing is what works in recent years. But yeah... you pretty much got it right. :)

I'll give this a go if you still need numbers. I'm currently studying journalism, so it'd be good experience :lol:

Will send you a PM now. Looking for decent volume so any others are welcome to express interest, too.

Once I have a couple published by you guys I'll pick out any that really hit the nail on the head which should hopefully give a clearer idea of what I'm ideally looking for.

I'd be willing to give it a shot, but I'm not as mean as Lib is.

I'm happy to have a crack at this. I feel that as I have experience of running away from three somes with crack addicts I can use my real life mishaps to formulate a decent story. I also need monies.
