Corporations and companies are constantly on the lookout for blog content writers. Normally these jobs require the equivalent of "fluff" or "blog filler" on their professional websites.
A variety of topics may be covered, and mostly are provided to the writer by the corporation. You may also receive a list of rules, sample style sheet, and writing guidelines. In many cases, the company will give you an outline of what to write about, how often to post, and what pertinent links must be in the blog post.
There are pros and cons of being a ghostwriter for corporations.
The pro of this job is that they are easily found. You can find them by searching freelance journalist sites under the blog categories. You would be surprised at how many companies have jumped on the "blog" bandwagon and need someone to produce constant content.
The cons of these jobs are pay, creativity, and lack of attribution.
The first being the salary compensation may be on the low end. You may be paid per word, or per post, and the pay may not be what you expected as a blog author. In many cases companies are focused on mass production and only looking for filler content. In some cases, outsourcing to other countries may put the median pay scale lower than what you would expect to receive.
The second con is creativity and style. If you are used to personal blogs or blogging about your own product, you may be a creative blogger and more open with your thoughts and feelings. Most corporations do not want this type of blogger, but instead, to follow strict style guidelines. You would be expected to write unemotional posts about products or services. These topics may even bore you to write about or become mundane depending on the topics at hand. You may find yourself talking about car insurance or health care benefits until you are blue in the face and become quickly bored with the job.
The worst part of ghostwriting is just that, your work is not attributed to you in many cases. Even though you may not want the fact you blog about feminine hygiene products on your resume, it is credit that you are not receiving for your hard work.
The cons seem to outweigh the pros, but if you are someone who writes bulk content quickly, this job may be perfect for you. In some cases, you may be able to have your name attached to the article in time, after you have performed much work for the company.
