Hi Uzma, I would like to hire you and Kazmee for this open ended Awakepedia project (martial arts related content). If you want your names on the articles, I’m happy to do so. We now have a “contributors” section, and your name/s can go at the top of it if you would like.
I need approx 2000 words per month ($40). Occasionally I will be able to give you more, but this $40 is my basic budget per month that I would like to get started with.
I will supply you with an endless list of articles I need, and the articles differ in length. Some will be 250 words perhaps, others will be 1000+. For this reason we should both be flexible with how you supply them to me. For instance, during a month you might feel like you want to write a few small quick easy ones, or you might want to write a one long one and a short one. You might want to get the 2000 words done at once, or you might want just give me 500 words a week. I don’t mind at all, all I need is some content coming in each month.
As you know, Awakepedia is a martial arts encyclopaedia. So far you have written about various martial art styles for me. I would like to continue that, however we are now including content on people, places, organisations, and other things related to martial arts. If you accept the job I will email you an invite to a dropbox folder that we can use. In that dropbox folder is an excel sheet where I have listed things I would like articles on. All you have to do is choose a topic from the list, write the article, and put the finished thing in to our dropbox. I trust the competence of you and your husband, and I would like this to work easily for all of us.
To break down and explain the categories…
These should be written in exactly the same format and length as the martial arts you wrote previously. Ie. Summary, Etymology, Beginnings, Present Day, Folklore, etc
Similar in length to the martial arts, so approx. 800 – 1500+ words. Depending on your research and how interesting the person is.
Shorter in length, again depending on your research. Minimum 250 words, maximum approx. 600 words.
Between 250 and 1000 words. I will mark the excel sheet with a rough guide of length for each topic.
This section is not ready to go yet, so ignore this category.
Format of writing. Every topic should have a “Summary” paragraph of approx. 100 words. We already have a format for you to use for “martial arts”. To save this brief from getting to confusing, if you take the job I would like to discuss with you a plan of how we should format the other categories, since you will be writing them. Ie, should “People” be essay-like? or should it be broken into headings similar to martial art articles. I would like your input on this.
I hope we can continue to work together, yo
u guys are just what I need!
