State of the Site: Help Wanted

All right, pace yourself, ’cause you’re gonna have to do this all day for very little money.

Newman, Seinfeld (The Bookstore)

We are pleased to say that The Hardball Times has grown a lot since it launched a little over a year ago, with new writers, increased national exposure, and a consistent growth in readership. We also have a number of exciting new things planned for the upcoming months. Along with that comes a need for some additional help in the everyday workings of the site.

THT’s non-writing staff remains dedicated but small in our second season, but we would like to make a couple midseason callups to help fill out our roster. Are you a fan of THT who has copy editing experience or computer programming ability? If so, you might be perfect for the “job.” We are looking for several hard-working individuals who don’t have the annoying need to be paid for their work. Again, if that sounds like you, keep reading.

Here’s what we are looking for …

Copy Editor:
– An hour or two of work, a couple days per week.
– Experience editing copy in typical AP style (or something similar).
– Knowledge of basic HTML formatting.
– The ability to be available late at night is a plus.
– Experience with web publishing and/or Expression Engine is also a plus.

– Ability to work on site-related issues when they arise.
– MySQL, PHP, or other equivalent programming language skills required.
– CSS and Javascript skills are a plus.

If you are interested in helping us out, please drop me an e-mail at
with a note about yourself and/or your skills. Sending a resume is fine, but certainly not required. And if you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me about that as well.
