Are you looking for the opportunity to get into blogging, but aren't quite ready to pick a domain name and wrestle with stylesheets and whatnot? Consider joining the Texas Kaos team:
Now that we've all survived, more or less, the Democratic Presidential Primary and the Texas State Democratic Convention time to take stock and prepare for the run up to the general election.
For us here at Texas Kaos, that includes filling some additional front page slots to flesh out our coverage of Texas news and politics more fully. We're looking in particular for bloggers in rural Texas, San Antonio and El Paso. Also, Latino, African and Asian-American writers may consider themselves actively being recruited.
If you're interested in joining us on the TK frontpage, please send an email to tk.frontpage at gmail with the following info:
1. Your name (or pseudonym that you blog under) and preferred contact method.
2. Your location and/or area of focus, including your home blog, if any.
3. At least 3 and up to 5 writing samples. If you have your own blog, links are fine. If you wish to use other writing samples, send those in the email with publication notes
All positions are unpaid. We ask that you post at least twice a week whenever possible.
If you have any questions about the position or TK in general, please feel free to ask them at the above email address.
Fire up those blogging fingers, y'all!!!
Finally, some additions to my own blogroll, thanks in part to the Dem convention:
Mean Rachel, yet another cool Austin blogger.
There...Already, a talented African-American group blog with a Houston presence.
Texas Education, by a teacher/education activist friend of mine.
The Bloggess, who wasn't at the convention and isn't particularly political as far as I know, but who cracks me up, and Lord knows we could all use more of that.Posted by Charles Kuffner on June 12, 2008 to Blog stuff
