Volunteer Position Open: Curating Profiles

You may have noticed that each piece of content on this blog now has a line of text below it that says, “Posted by [name]”.   You may have also noticed that “[name]” isn’t “Sarah” so much anymore. That’s because we’ve made this project self-sustaining with a team of seven — count em! SEVEN! — amazing volunteers who are offering their time and vision to help curate the content.  I’ll formally introduce you to them soon.

But before I do that, I want to make sure we’re covering all our bases.  We’ve got space for at least one more volunteer: a Profiles Curator.  Profiles are the brilliant identity snapshots that we collect through the Define Yourself form and post here.

The job involves

  • receiving and organizing the submissions
  • deciding which ones to run
  • inputting them into our blogging system
  • lightly editing and formatting them

The work is probably an hour or two a week (although you can organize it differently — 5 hours a month in one sitting works, too). And I’ll tell you everything you need to know.

If you’re interested, please email me: sarah at genderfork com

It will help if you can tell me a little about yourself, give me links to your presence(s) elsewhere on the web, and tell me why you want to help.  Also, since this is just a one-person job, if you’d be interested in helping in other ways please let me know that, too.

The work is creative and rewarding, and the team is really fun.  We’re looking forward to building Genderfork with you!

Thanks and love,

Edit: We got someone! Thanks!  If you want to be on my radar for help with other stuff, though, you should still email me!  xoxo
