Looking for writers

Because we would like to bring the Barcelona fans more, faster and better news, we would like to create a pool of writers and therefore we are looking for people who could write posts for the blog.

We are talking about on-time news posts here, not opinion pieces. Such a post can go from basically translating a news report to putting a story together yourself based on one or more news reports. We will give you some guidelines, but we already want to mention the following.


You should be able to adapt to the style of this blog, which is quite basic but nevertheless quality-oriented (regarding content, language and lay-out). To keep things readers-friendly, it's probably best that this continues to be the general line. Of course you can add your personal accents.

You should therefore also have a decent knowledge of the English language (without English having to be your mother tongue) and preferably also the Spanish language (or you should be excellent with google translate or other translating tools).

You should be able to take initiative. If you see a story that is interesting, you basically can start writing. You shouldn't wait for permission.

Although it's of course volunteer work (we also remind that this is a charity based blog with the benefits going to good works), we would ask some sort of minimum commitment. For example, you can say "Ok, I can give you fifteen minutes a day and write one post", or "I can be around for one hour, but only during weekdays" or "Only in the weekend". This will enable us to organize everything a bit.


If you are interested and motivated to help out, you can contact us at:

Pep, I don't mean to tell you or your guys how to do things as I'm sure you guys have thought out of everything, as reflected by the quality of the blog, but do you guys allocate certain people to look at certain news site for barca news i.e 1 or more persons watching goal.com for example? Where you or someone designated are the ones deciding which stories/news to post ala an editor.

As much as I want to help, I'm not from a place where any barca news can be considered newsflash, the only way I can help is through the internet esp. english language ones but then again I'm sure there are already someone taking care of that as it's a given. Anyway being GMT+8, any breaking news in Europe will be late at night here so there's no guarantee that I will even see it. Maybe there are other ways where I can help, I hope...
