    Want to write for a folding bike site?

    I don't think this is breaking any rules of the forum but if it is then moderators please delete this post and forgive me

    I'm looking for a someone passionate about folding bikes or cycling that is willing to work with me long term writing for my folding bike blog/store. www.newfoldingbikes.com

    What is need is:

    2 weekly unique blog posts roughly 200 - 400 words
    1 weekly unique article suitable for article directories 400 - 700 words

    The 2 weekly blog posts can be quick reviews of a folding bike or news about folding bikes 1 of each would be best.
    The weekly article can be about anything related to folding bikes such as choosing a folder, reviews of different bikes, usage, tips, maintenance or anything that would be people wanting to buy a folding bike would be interested in.

    The site I run is www.newfoldingbikes.com and my target audience is people that want to buy folding bikes so all content should be useful information for those thinking of purchasing a folding bicycle.

    I will pay monthly via elance's escrow service at the following rates 5USD per blog post and 10$ for the article plus the rewrite which equals $20 per week or $80 per month.

    I expect high quality work written with proper grammar & spelling yet it can't be boring to read! We're writing for people here not search engines

    I'll provide examples and research sources for the 1st month but after that you must be able to work unsupervised.

    If your interested please reply here and give examples or your writing or some some stylish posts that you've written here

    Any other questions feel free to ask.

    hey man, i'd be down for writing up on this site. I have tore down and rebuilt a few things on my strida and wouldn't mind elaborating on that for others, and this crosses over to other bikes as well.

    the niggles and the practicality of folders are just so unique. i think snafu21 should have a weekly or monthly column as well, cuz he is just so damn hilarious and wordy.

    more details? email me: trueno92@gmail.com

    I'd like to see a close up of the steerer/downtube connection. It looks as though the downtube has a headtube, through which a rod passes, and that rod in turn is connected to the single-tine 'fork' in two places, above and below the downtube. Seems as though those joins would be subjected to great stresses.

    Regards

    " I expect high quality work written with proper grammar & spelling"

    I'm afraid my present situation: lounging around crazed with drink, high on WD40, and loafing lavisciously in the pool with my orange Downtube, does not permit me to contemplate proper work, unless it is by a palm-fringed beach in the Antipodes.

    Then, I might.

    Ya proved my point ! Q.E.D.



    I know, you and Mulleady can do a tandem blog. Dialog style. You two wouldn't have to think, just have a couple of pints and pontificate into a recorder. Transcribe what happens and voila! Instant Internet fame and virtual riches. It would be funny!!!!

    Mulleady is a fine fellow, but there would be squabbles about whose turn it was to pour the next Cuban Breeze.

    Also, the New Zealand dollar, like the USA one, is worth only the price of a Mars Bar. They're lovely people in the Antipodes, but we pro scribblers need to see air tickets, and photos of the beach...

    The $US is worth a little more than its Kiwi equivalent. But +1 on Snafu21 writing some witty articles especially on her experiences on a folding bike. She writes hilariously and insightfully when she had has her weekly dose of magic mushrooms.

    Did I notice that one poster mistook the famous Snafu21 for a 'he'? Be careful she's the Kraken in disguise

    Pity...

    I think you two could be a smashing success on the Web! In the mold of Laurel and Hardy, Cheech and Chong, Lucy and Desi, Ben & Jerry's.
