We are looking for a full-time writer to write day to day articles on the shows we cover such as Real Housewives, Southern Charm, Vanderpump Rules, Teen Mom, 90 Day Fiance, and more. This is only for articles and NOT for recaps.

Responsibilities will include:
– Being available from 8:30am to 6pm Eastern Time from Mondays to Fridays (On most days, you’ll be done by 4pm).
– Working six days a week. Full-time hours from Monday to Friday and then two Saturdays a month.
– Pitching reality TV stories each morning via email by 9am or earlier. By 10:00am on Saturdays.
– Working ONLY for Reality Blurb in the capacity of a writer/editor/blogger (related to Reality TV and Entertainment News) as you will have access to site stats and data.
– Doing phone interviews with reality stars on rare occasions. There will be opportunities to travel and interview the reality stars on occasion. While occasional phone interviews are part of the job, any traveling will be completely optional.
– Basic social media use.
– A passion for Reality TV! Especially the Real Housewives and the other shows we regularly cover. Watching these shows and knowing what the storylines are is NECESSARY in order to be able to pitch, pick, and write stories.
– Ability to know and pick the best stories for the site.
– Being able to multitask and work on deadline.
How to Apply –
- Please send a brief bio, a list of your favorite reality TV shows, your resume, and a writing sample to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Writing samples can be links to an online article that you’ve written about reality TV news. If you don’t have any online stories related to reality TV news, you will need to write up a writing sample based on recent reality TV news that you think would be great for the site. Preferably stories that haven’t been covered on the site. Of course, your work/writing samples will NOT be published anywhere.
TIP – We strongly advise looking at our past articles to get an idea of how we write our stories, the format, etc, and follow those guidelines for your writing samples.
Why You Want This Gig – In addition to being able to write about the tv shows you already love to watch, there will be opportunities to learn, to travel to cover events and interview reality stars, to get bonuses and for promotions in the future!
