A Very Wesleying Recr00tment

Hey readers,

A new semester is upon us, and you may have noticed some shiny new display names gracing the storied pages of this historic four-year-old blog. Weird, right? What this basically means for Wesleying International Enterprises©: some of our favorite contributors are graduating in the not-so-distant future, others are abroad, and we’re looking for new blood. Bloggers too, if you’re into that.

What we’re especially looking for: photographers and writers willing to post recaps of major campus events of any sort (planned or spontaneous) at Wes; people who spend way too much time on the interwebs and want to blog aboot it; writers with strong opinions or advice about general campus life; and, of course, bloggers who don’t mind going through our inbox every now and then and posting these events you guys seem awfully fond of submitting to us. Or, you know, students who just want to be part of this blog in any capacity. In the words of Sheek ’10, “all you need is Internet access, the ability to string sentences together coherently [or take photos/video], and an interest in life at Wesleyan as it is, was, and might be.”

All class years and writing experience levels welcome. If you’re intrigued, shoot us an email at staff(at)wesleying(dot)org (put “Wesleying Recruitment” in the subject line) and include a bit about yourself—why you want to join Wesleying, any blogging experience you may have, things you’re involved with on campus, whatever. More from last year’s recruitment after the jump.

Wesleying was created as a student-driven space to promote a sense of community on campus, and we hope we’ve helped do so over the past three years.  Now that we’re settled here on our new site and processing events won’t be as time-sucking as before, we’re bringing the focus back to content.

As a Wesleying blogger you can be part of Wesleyan’s most frequently read media source, with the potential to shape campus discourse and the ability to keep Wespeople informed and entertained… and procrastinating. Wesleying is as good as whatever its contributors put into it, so let us know what you’ve got.

Do you know or have a lot to say about Weslife? Do you or people you know do cool stuff on/around campus? Do you want to break news as it happens? Do you take sweet campus photos? Do you like to Photoshop things? Are you into Wes music, and can you describe it in words?  Are you a human filter for Internet media? Do you know your memes? Are you a news junkie with an eye for things relevant to us at Wes? Do you possess keen wit and/or discerning taste? Do you write good? Does weird/messed up shit happen to you or your friends sometimes; wanna talk about it?

Are you into digging up forgotten pieces of Wes history? Do you know secret things? Do you explore little-known, little-seen parts of campus? Is campus deconstruction second nature after you took Intro Sociology? Do you have more opinions than your friends can bear to listen to? Do u miss wen we used 2 speak LOLspeak? Do you miss yesteryear’s Wesleyan weirdness; wanna bring it back/keep it going? Do you think things just aren’t the same as they used to be? Do you want to keep up the kind of content we’ve been posting over the years? Do you have a perspective you think we’re missing, or have been neglecting lately? Are you just REALLY EXCITED TO BE HERE??
