AutoblogGreen now accepting new blogger applications

It's that time of the AutoblogGreen expansion again; time to take on a little more help. We're looking for new bloggers who are passionate about cars and the environment. You can prefer EVs or biodiesel, Saab or ZENN, trains or hybrids. What matters to us is that you care about the world and how we get around in in.

Here's the details:

A good candidate must exhibit:
  • Prolific knowledge of the auto industry and/or green auto scene
  • Ability to write with wit, concision and authority
  • Consistent schedule
  • Self motivation
  • A demonstrated passion for autos
We also require that you:
  • Possess a fast computer (laptops are best) and fast Internet connection
  • Own a decent digital camera
  • Have the software and knowledge to create and manipulate photos
  • Are available to blog on an almost daily basis
  • Keep a valid drivers license
The following characteristics would be nice, but not required, of our new bloggers.
  • Time to travel to green car events
  • Previous blogging or automotive writing experience
Here's how to apply. Send the following to: writers [@]

Your email should have no attachments except for a resume (if you want) and include the following information inside the email.
  • A subject line with your full name
  • Your full contact information including physical address, email, daytime/evening phone numbers, IM user IDs, etc.
  • Brief bio of yourself telling us why you're the right blogger for the job
  • Three sample posts written in the AutoblogGreen style on any topics you like
  • A list of car(s) you currently own or a description of how you use alternate transportation
  • Three suggestions on how to improve AutoblogGreen
  • Your nomination for 2007 best auto (or green car trend) of the year and why
We'll only consider complete applications that come with no more than a resume attached to the email. Due to the large volume of applications expected, we unfortunately cannot respond to each and every one. If you've made the cut past the first round, we'll contact you and go from there. If you've applied to blog for us before, and are still interested, please apply again to remind us.
