Sunday, April 06, 2008 Seeks Health Writers, a subsidiary of the New York Times Company, are seeking part-time writer-experts to serve as Guides for them.

As a Guide, you'll build and maintain a GuideSite, a topical section of that contains:

Original content (articles, reviews, FAQs, tutorials) written by you
A blog featuring your unique voice and personality
A directory of the best content in your topic, whether it be your own work or links to other sites
A discussion forum where you serve as community leader
A bio page with your contact info

All Guides are considered freelancers who work online and set their own schedules, giving them the flexibility to log on from anywhere in the world whenever they have the time. With no timesheets to fill out and no timecards to punch, working for gives you the flexibility to write when you want, even if you have a full-time day job.

The compensation is based on page views - the more traffic you get, the more money you get. But all Guides, no matter what, make a minimum of $725 a month. Want to know more? Visit
