Hello guys and trolls and dolls,
My new shared venture with my business partner is Fusion Viral Video – in particular the Why? Because Science tab – and we are now considering taking this project in an exclusively science-themed direction. Hell yes!
Right now, the site is in its infancy and we’re still busy ironing out the kinks and getting it flushed with content. But eventually, it will become to go-to site for interesting science news and entertainment with Why? Because Science’s trademark accessibility and humour. How does this impact you?
I’m looking for people who would like to start using FVV as a platform on which they can publish their blogs, sciencey musings, funny pictures and entertaining/whoa! videos. In other words, I’m looking for authors! The cool news is that when this site starts generating more than enough revenue via advertising to cover the baseline expenses, there will be huge potential for profit-sharing!
The basic requirements I have for those of you who would like to become an author on FVV’s Why? Because Science are:
1. You must have a great sense of humour.
2. You must have an eye for what’s relevant, entertaining and interesting.
3. If you become involved in actually writing – as opposed to just posting videos and pictures – then you have to be a GOOD writer. You’d be surprised how many people just aren’t.
4. You’ve got to be able to post three or more items per day.
Examples of the kinds of posts I would like an author to make are:
If you’re interested and would like to become a regular contributor to FVV’s Why? Because Science, all you’ve got to do is send me a personal email (email@example.com) with a link to your blog (if you have one), a sample of your science writing and three links to videos, articles and/or pictures that you’d consider interesting enough to post on the site.
If I like what you have to say, which is pretty easy – I’m not that demanding – I’ll get you set up as an author! You keep track of your hours and with enough intellectual fuel from you, the site will eventually start generating big revenue.
Right! So let’s begin! I can’t wait to hear from you!
