Job Type Per Post Fee


Overview: We're looking to hire a blogger with in-depth experience in indoor gardening and loves to write about houseplants. The blog is currently written in-house but we’re looking for someone to take over the writing. 1-2 articles per week, for a total of 6-8 articles per month.

Pay: $30 per article for 350 – 500 words. All original content.

About us: Chuckle Farm is an ecommerce website that specializes in indoor garden accessories made in the USA. It's our belief that nature's botanical beauties deserve focal-point status in interior spaces, and our mission is to provide a worthy vessel. To elicit a smile. And to share the joy of living with nature on an intimate scale.

About the Blog: The blog focuses on having fun with indoor gardening. We want to spread the word about indoor gardening and our love for houseplants. Our blog posts span many topics, here are a few:

• Featured Houseplant Series, where we feature 1 houseplant a month
• Plants with Benefits – discuss research on the health & well-being of bringing plants indoors
• Styling Tips for Container Gardening - ideas for future articles: (1) Topdressing Tips and Ideas, (2) 5 Super-Chic Houseplants, (3) Mixing in art with your indoor gardens, and (4) Focal plants as conversation pieces.
• We’re also very open to hearing your topic ideas

Photography: We have some stock photography that can be used for articles. If you have access to your own then that’s an added plus. Ideally, we’d love a blogger who enjoys photography, where we would (eventually) send you our product for you to shoot to accompany your articles. So instead of using stock photography to accompany an article, you would use an image with one of our products represented. This would not be right away, but once we determined we were a good fit and you could show sample images of your photography work. We would then discuss the photography budget.

Tone: a fun, cheerful informal voice that is professionally written. Our target audience is women, 25-37 yrs old.

Summary of Skills and Requirements:
• Intermediate to advanced (indoor) gardener
• Has an eye for design and decorating
• Loves plants, has fun styling them and crafting indoor green spaces
• Photography skills a plus
• Work experience in Horticulture, Gardening, or Interior Design a BIG plus
• Access to your own (stock) photography a BIG plus
• Sample writing required to be considered

Send an email to Alison with details about your background (as to why you're a good fit) and writing samples. Happy Gardening!
