Tiny House, Tiny Living, The Tiny Life.

Now Hiring!

It has been a really interesting time here at The Tiny Life.  With so many new people to our Tiny Community I find myself wanting to do more and more for you all.   I want to bring in other viewpoints, because a little variety would be welcomed, up until now I have done this with guest posts.   But today I am stepping up, I am putting my money where my mouth is, I am accepting applications.  I am looking to hire one writer to do a post once a week.

Contributor Wanted

First and foremost, I want someone who is excited about a chance to share their passion, who cares about the Tiny House Community, all of which shows in their writing.  Not only will you have a platform to share your thoughts with thousands, but you can get a modest pay for it!

This is a paid position that requires the individual to deliver original content on a weekly basis, one article a week on Monday.  This position can be done from any location, so long as you are available via phone and have a high speed internet connection.   Each article will be 500+ words, will be original content and must include photos (yours or source via internet).  Payment will be on a monthly basis.

  • Must have a passion for Tiny Houses
  • Solid grammar, spelling and writing skills
  • A reliable computer w/ internet
  • Available for a post a week
  • Must be timely with deadlines

Deadline: 5pm on 7 / 26 / 2010

We want to be WOWED with your unique voice and awesome commentary! Please submit posts written specifically for The Tiny Life.   Please be familiar with The Tiny Life and our general style and format of posts for submission.

Send me

  • Resume
  • Short Bio (include head shot – see note below)
  • Two 500  word articles in Word format
  • Photos for each post (do not place in Word)

Email me the indicated files at:      ryan112ryan [at] yahoo [dot] com

Potential Subjects

These are some suggested topics, I am very open to just about anything that is relevant to what we do here.  I want you to help our community grow through great writing and your unique perspective.

  • Tiny Houses
  • Environmental Topics
  • Gardening
  • Sustainable Design/Building
  • Floor plans/House design
  • DIY Projects
  • Wow us with your own idea!

General Note: I will be reviewing all applications, applying does not necessarily mean you will be hired.  My final selection will be only one person for the time being, the person will be expected to post once a week, on Monday.

A note about photo: A few folks inquiring why I request this.  The reason I ask for it is that my goal is to develop a relationship with readers, having a face to connect to the voice brings in a personal element.   Ultimately it is their writing, personality and voice that will be used to choose who will get the position.  The photo will be used in the “about us” section, in an introductory post, and in some cases inline like you see sometimes with columnist.

That said, if someone really doesn’t want a photo of them posted, then I certainly would understand and wouldn’t force it.

  1. Wow, this is an awesome opportunity! Thanks.

    • I hope we can find a great writer that is excited as I am about the Tiny House Movement!

  2. Why must the Short Bio include a head shot?

    • The only reason I ask for it is that my goal is to develop a relationship with readers, having a face to connect to the voice brings in a personal element. I am always trying to develop a conversation, not just a post that I send out there. Ultimately it is their writing, personality and voice that will be used to choose who will get the position.

      That said, if someone really doesn’t want a photo of them posted, then I certainly would understand and wouldn’t force it.

  3. You say there is pay. How much are we talking? I know one small artical once a week isn’t going amount to a lot but it is something worth knowing.

    • I still haven’t figured out the exact number, it will not be a whole lot, but it will be pretty comparable for market rates.

  4. This is great, Ryan! I’ll submit my articles too.
    :)

  5. Hi Ryan,
    My guess is this position has been filled by now, but what a great thing you are doing by providing this information to others.
    My love for tiny houses is newer than this opportunity!
    I love your site, and am only beginning to delve into all this interesting informatiion!
    Thanks for writing! I can’t get enough!
