11 Characteristics I Look for When Hiring Writers for My Blogs

Profile photo of Sunday Submitted by Sunday August 22, 2013 Website: www.problogger.net

Two months ago I went through the process of hiring a small group of writers to write weekly tutorials for Digital Photography School. I’ve written about the process of how I hire writers previously here on Problogger but today want to share some of the qualities I look for in the writers I hired this time around.

My hope is that it might both help those who are hiring bloggers but also those who are applying for blogging jobs.

Of course it is virtually impossible to find a blogger who is perfect in each of the following areas – however the more they have the higher the chances of me hiring them.

11 Characteristics I Look For When Hiring Bloggers

1. Expertise and Experience in the Blog’s Topic

This is fairly obvious but needs to be said. When I recently hired bloggers to write for my photography blog I of course needed them to show that they were experienced in the area of photography.

    Those are a lot of requirements. Seriously. :) But of course, as an employer, you would want to have the best. So although this might be a tough list, but a writer who passes will definitely going to help in creating great content.

    This is one of those articles that are for keeps. :)
