Blog Writers – Gardening, Cooking, Lifestyle


We're looking to add four awesome blog writers to join our team and help us produce high-quality, informative content. These roles are freelance and ongoing.

Niches: Modern gardening, cooking and recipes, lifestyle and decor. If you have an interest in and are able to work across these niches, plus others, it would be preferable.

Audiences: Australia, New Zealand and the USA so an understanding of the quirky English variances across these countries is important.

You will get a detailed content brief with the keywords, desired length and style, target audience as well as guidance on how to write SEO optimised content.

We like high-quality, researched, well-formatted, and well-edited content that adds value to the reader. The articles need to be written in a conversational tone and should be informative, engaging and easy to read.

The initial pay rate is $0.03 (USD) per word with an option to review and increase after 6-months. Typical length of each article will range between 1,500 - 3,000 words.
