TODAY: THE OFFICIAL KC CONFIDENTIAL HELP WANTED ADS; READ EM & WEEP

 

That’s right, all caps, all of the time…

It’s that time again. When the call goes out across the heartland for writers. People with a penchant for being a part of something – arguably – kinda special.

Look, I don’t have to waste anybody’s time belaboring the many flaws here at KC Confidential. That’s why we have a comments section. So what if we can’t spell, type or proofread, etc. You know, at time. Hey, we try. And remember, our motley crew isn’t exactly in it for the big bucks.

To a man (and that includes women), pretty much everybody here is first and foremost out to inform and/or entertain. Sure, they could just blog away on their own. But with more than a quarter million unique visitors each month – and growing – it’s more fun locking horns with a larger audience.

In spite of the heat we take.

Which I don’t mind telling you, has cost us a few writers. So thanks for that.

Now on to who and what we’re looking for as we approach our third anniversary this February…

First up, if you’ve got an idea, a passion, a shortcoming worth sharing, we want you. Maybe. Naturally you have to be able to write as good as Craig Glazer- kidding, right? – and second, it’d be nice if you have a voice. Which Craig obviously does in spades.

Believe it or not, I’d like to snag someone with passion for WWE professional wrestling. Please don’t ask me to explain, but if the shoe fits, Lemme hear from you.

Restaurants, fashion, reality TV, sports talk radio, local TV news, KCMO politics, national politics, coverage of the fine and perfroming arts and local pop culture are all subjects we’re interested in exploring. We’re OK on sex, thanks.

It’s not a paying gig – not to start with anyway. Think of it as on-the-job-training meets internship.

Again, if you have an idea you want to run up the flagpole, feel free. We’re open.

    … No thanks …
    Write for KCC? No thanks, I’ll pass.

    It’s more enjoyable to ridicule, jeer, mock, insult, and make fun of the regular ‘commentators’ here anonymously.

    THE HELLP
    If this were a REAL Help Wanted Ad it might read something like this:

    WANTED, AUTO MECHANIC. Strong desire to work on cars more important than actual ability to do so. Knowledge of automobiles a plus but not necessary. High Churn Customer base guarantees your ability to repeatedly fail. Tools not necessary but would be very impressed if you had a Leatherman.or at least one month minimum experience with Swiss Army Knife or equivalent. Torque Multiplication Specialist HIGHLY PREFERRED. Understanding of LSBB+BFF2IC HR Systems will insure your success or ability to cope. Real Hair a PLUS but not required. E0E+MWBE Tracy Thomas need not apply.

    Consider it written…

  7. BarKeeper says:

    Shorter Version of Same Ad
    In other words, “All local dilettantes may apply. Must be able to co-mingle with other dabblers, felons, scofflaws, and various social outcasts. Deep seated hatred of the KC Star a big plus.”

  8. Ranger Danger says:

    How due I replie?
    I want to applie for your job position. I write almost as good as that Grazer guy and can find storys around town to write of. I just need a chance to prove my wirth. My first storie would be about how Mexican food provents cancers.

  9. TOby says:

    “arguably something kinda special” = KCC’s new slogan
    Man, would love to write for a local site, but for better or worse this thing has become the Craig Glazer show and his larger-than-life personality, which he keeps puffing up week after week, kind of overshadows this whole thing. Any aspiring contributor to this site would have to ask themselves, “Do I really want my work appearing next to a story about buying lobster for a girl in exchange for a three way in which I went down on a porn star in front of her 14-year-old son?”

    Nah.

  10. Hearne Christopher says:

    funny

  11. Hearne Christopher says:

    Let’s check your math; out of the 20 stories currently featured, Craig has three – and only because I broke his college and pro pics item into two entries because it was a little long. Not sure that quite makes it the Craig Glazer Show, but if that’s the way you feel.

    I look at it as diversity.

    Your prerequisites
    Hearne, Blogging isn’t a money game. What else can you offer a talented writer? A decent online platform that looks good and has all the bells and whistles. You ain’t got it. If you want to move in this direction, let me know. You’ve got my contact info.
    Sincerely,

  13. Hearne Christopher says:

    You don’t like our looks? Flatterer!

    Here’s the bottom line, my friend; writers want readers. You can get a handful of hundred on jimmycsays and be happy as a clam. Or you can get 10,000 to 12,000 uniques a day on KCC and live life in a faster lane.

    Those Hot Milfs chris and craig
    How about benefits? Friends with benefits? Friends with chris and craig? Benefits with chris and craig?? The ultimate threesome with chris and the hairy fairy? Bam de lam?

    Oh, sure, sure…

    You can borrow Craig’s Lotus whenever he’s out of the country. And I’m certain he’ll be happy to, um, hook you up. The KC Confidential Christmas bash is just around the corner, and if you play your cards right, you might even be able to suit up fro a round of drinking games with Brandon Leftridge.
