If you have a journalism background, you’re already one step ahead. Show us the clips to back it up.

We're an Internet marketing company that also does a lot of deep SEO. We want you to write news and blog posts your friends want to share on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to help educate the masses about how smart they would be if they only read you every day. If this sounds like a job you could do, read on.
