Writers wanted for site – what would you write for $15?

Seeing as how I’m ever short on cash, I thought for a moment the following might buy me some groceries. Question arises – what’s the going rate for ‘professional’ blogging? What kind of quality does $15 buy you?

Anyway, if the site gets off the ground, it could well prove interesting, informative, and high quality. Good luck!

From Nigel Hetherington (on whose blog I find a lulu-published ‘Mithras Reader‘):

Articles and Blog entries needed for Heritage Key website

Past Preservers needs your input to a new business venture-Heritage Key

Here’s what they have to say about Heritage Key

Heritage Key – where the ancient world meets the 3D web

Heritage Key provides immersive 3D experiences to explore the ancient world which we will be releasing at around one per quarter. (First one in Q1, 2009; The Life & Treasures of King Tutankhamun)

To supplement the 3D experiences the website is focussed on ancient world sites; providing the best and most up to date information, guides to sites and/or museums and photos of key ancient world or heritage sites and objects.

Alongside that there is a wealth of interesting and relevant material out there on the web, think Flickr for photos or Digg for relevant information and our webby techy team will be bringing it all together.

Last but by no means least…we want as much user generated content as possible and will encourage users to participate by uploading photos, creating groups, writing blogs or travelogs, etc.

So where can you can get involved, well we need your input relating to the first phase of Heritage Key- The Life & Treasures of King Tutankhamun.

We need your articles and blogs on issues relating to Ancient Egypt in general but in particular surrounding the life and death of Tutankhamun

We have three levels of article:-

A Blog Entry, could be a news item, a discussion of a particular object from the tomb, an insight into your research or views, or a comment on another article
Should be around 500 words, and we will pay $15 for all published pieces

Then we have a short article, around 1200 words, again on all aspects of Tutankhamun and the Amarna period, we will pay $25 for all published pieces

Then for all longer articles, we will pay $35 for all published pieces

The focus should be on new investigations, insights, opinions etc

Any questions please ask

All the best Nigel
