SEO Writing Job; Seeking Freelance Writers to Interview

Two things today folks:

1. Newsletter Notice

Inkwell Editorial’s newsletter was supposed to be published today. The interviewee, however, stood me up (ie, did not return the questionnaire). So, I’ll publish it next week (Wed, 1/16).

In five years of publishing newsletters off and on, this has never happened to me, so I’m a bit perplexed. So, I need some help! Hence, the following:

Seeking Freelance Writers to Interview

I'm seeking a freelance writer who writes SEO content to interview for this month's issue. Questions (8-10 of them) will be emailed and you will have 3-4 days to respond. If interested, please respond and you will be sent the questions right away (info [at] Put "Interview Me" in the subject line so I can get to it quickly).

FYI, newsletter is emailed list of over 17,000 subscribers and the most recent copy can be accessed here: (links to all previous issues are included in this most recent issue).

NOTE: I'm always looking for successful freelancers to interview for the newsletter, which comes out every 3-6 weeks. So, if you're a creative professional (eg, writer, newsletter publisher, ebook author, cartoonist, illustrator, logo designer, etc.), who wants to be featured in a future issue, please email a link to your website/blog so I can check you out and get back to you.

I respond to all queries, usually within 3-4 days.

2. Freelance Writing Job: Seeking SEO Writers

I placed an ad on Craigslist last night for freelance SEO writers. I got myself into a bit of a pickle with deadlines, so needed some immediate help.

From that ad, I’ve lined up three to start outsourcing projects to on a regular basis. If you want to be on the list for future consideration, just email me a short note (info [at] Put SEO Writer in the subject line).

Sometime the next few weeks, I’m going import all email addresses of interested parties in a freelance database that I will send job notices out to when I need work done. As I said, I’m set for right now, but this is for future consideration.

I have clients who request articles on every conceivable topic -- from wedding accessories to recording equipment -- so need writers with various types of writing expertise.

I look forward to the possibility of working with you.

For reasons I don't understand, Craigslist flagged my post for removal (they say sometimes this happens for the wrong reason, so I can just repost). But for all those who've written to me asking, following is what the ad said:

Freelance Writing Job: 500-word SEO Articles
I'm a busy SEO writer looking for new SEO writers who want intermittent work (eg, 5-10 articles/week at $15/piece).

All are 450-500 words and have 2-4 day turnaround times. IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT -- 2 ARTICLES ON ROUTERS DUE TODAY (1/9) AT 2PM. 450-500 words each. $15/per article. Paid immediately upon receipt.

FYI, the bulk of the work I have right now is for articles on real estate, mortgages and tech stuff. Although, I have SEO clients who request articles on every conceivable topic -- from wedding accessories to recording equipment.

I pay via PayPal, so please have a PayPal account (it's free to get one if you don't already have it). I'm looking for writers I can form a relationship with for the long haul. If interested, contact me for further details.

Just to let you know, the link to your craigslist ad is to manage it. Anyone could easily delete it from that page. I'd love to offer my services, but I'm afraid it's too short notice at this point. Perhaps in the future though.

I just posted two "writing help wanted" messages at two Yahoo! groups I belong to. The reponse has been great, and now I have plenty of virtual help from which to choose. I haven't even gotten through all their emails yet.

BTW, I'd love an interview opportunity for your newsletter. Here's a bit of what I'm up to:

To all who responded to my interview requests and SEO job writing opportunities, thanks! I'll be getting back to everybody over the next couple of days.
