Wesleying is Here to Recruit You

We’re launching the new Wesleying soon. For real. Very soon. It will be on the Internet and you will go to there instead of here.

In the meantime, we’re stepping up our game.

It’s halfway through the semester, and half of our active contributors are graduating in May. Wesleying needs some new talent.

Of ways to get involved at Wes, being a regular Wesleying blogger probably requires one of the most minimal time commitments. But it also has possibly the greatest potential to shape student discourse, provoke discussion, and keep people informed and entertained at Wesleyan.

At least, that’s the goal. We get a shit-ton of emails, and over the past year event submissions have become the vast majority of the emails we get. Don’t get us wrong, we love posting what you send in, and really appreciate that so many of you think of Wesleying when advertising events – keep them coming.

But right now there are only so many of us and the more time each of us spends posting events, the less we have to write actual content about things you care about.

So to lighten the load on us and to better serve you, the readers, we’re opening up.

If you:
a) are interested in things,
b) are literate,
c) have an insufferable need to share information, and/or
d) have an especially keen sense of what goes on at Wesleyan,
we want you!

Any combination of these qualities will suffice. But that last one will make us really, really want you, because what goes on at Wesleyan is at the core of what Wesleying is, has been, and will continue to be.

If you just recognized yourself in any of these general criteria, shoot us an email at staff(at)wesleying(dot)org and tell us a little about yourself and why you’re interested in joining Wesleying. No pressure.

We’ll be taking applicants all semester, but hope to hit the ground running with a larger blogging staff when classes start after spring break. If you’re interested, don’t wait!

    4:28 am – There’s no quota of posts that anyone has to fulfill – how much each blogger contributes is up to them. But in the interest of maintaining the energy of the blog, we’d appreciate people joining with the intent of posting at least somewhat frequently. If you think you’d only make a few posts over the course of a semester of some random videos you found online, you might as well just email them to us instead of becoming a contributor.

    Yeah 8:46, sorry about that – it’s been kind of a mess up here for the past month and we’re getting it back together now. We’d be happy to have you back.

    8:46:Earlier this semester, in preparation for our move, we deleted all the contributors here and then added back the ones who had posted in something like the last month. If you want back, just shoot us an e-mail, and I’ll re-add you!

    Dear Wesleying,I was a contributor, but I got unilaterally booted sometime within the past month without my notification. This saddens me, and strikes me as somewhat hypocritical.
