Collaborate With Us

In addition to our main site, we operate one of the most popular food blogs on the Tumblr blogging network, and a popular Twitter feed. We're currently interviewing writers, photographers and videographers who are interested in contributing to these efforts.

Background

  • Our blog is a Tumblr "Staff Pick", which means that Tumblr promotes us and recommends us to its users.
  • Our blog is consistently included in the top of Tumblr's Food Directory.
  • Thousands of Tumblr members "follow" our blog, which means that every one of our posts gets delivered straight to these readers. On top of that, each post gets lots of additional traffic through Google, Twitter and traffic from our main site.
  • Over 400 people follow us on Twitter. We are included on 46 Twitter lists.

Details

  • During our first year, one person worked with our founder to manage most of our blogging and Twitter efforts. Now we're changing that. We're excited to bring more of a mix of perspectives and voices to our readers. To get started, we're producing a series of guest posts from awesome New York City chefs.
  • Blog writers
    We're looking for writers who can contribute one or two pieces per month to the blog. We set the general editorial direction of the blog, but you'll have significant indpendence to pitch, research and execute on your own ideas. Writing for us is a great portfolio builder!
  • Blog photographers
    We're looking for photographers who can work with our writers to shoot for blog posts. This could range from photo shoots with chefs or farmers to shoots at the market or product still-lifes. Get your work seen by thousands of passionate NYC foodies and build a portfolio of work in the food world! We'll credit you whenever your photos are used and we'll link back to your site.
  • Twitter
    We're looking for a few social media up-and-comers to manage our Twitter presence. This is a commitment of a couple hours per week. We'll help you learn the ropes. If you're looking to build your online presence, this is a great opportunity for you.
  • Videographers
    We love video. If you want to contribute to our blog with video posts, we'd love to hear from you.

Compensation

  • These are unpaid gigs. Our site is a passion project. We run it like a startup, but it's not a business.
  • The benefit of working with us is that you can use our brand and our audience to build a presence in the online food space, and you can get your work read and seen by thousands.
  • We'll clearly credit you for any contributions and link to a personal site or blog of your choice. So you can also promote your own projects with our audience by contributing with us.
