Hey Readers,

Wesleying is looking for new staff members! We are an entirely student-run, student-funded, student-supported campus life blog. We’ve been kickin’, in some form, since our founding in 2006 by fairy godmothers Holly ’08 and Xue ’08 and have been growing every year since then. We’re looking for bloggers, journalists, writers, photographers, interviewers, social media types, homespun Wes historians, videographers, internet addicts, photoshop fiends, and web design wizards—whatever. Frosh especially welcome.

If you love Wesleying and want to help make it the weird, irreverent, and colorful media space it has become—or if you just like blogging in your underwear—please stop by. In the immortal words of The Great Sheek, “All you need is Internet access, the ability to string sentences together coherently, and an interest in life at Wesleyan as it is, was, and might be.”

Why you should join Wesleying:

  1. You write stuff and thousands (literally) of people read it.
  2. The opportunity to interview powerful people.
  3. Occasional offers of fancy press passes for cool conferences.
  4. You can shed light on campus issues that are close to home (or not).
  5. Know everything that’s happening on campus before anybody else.
  6. Access to the drama-filled amusement ride that is the Wesleying listserv.
  7. Wesleying alums have gone on to awesome publications (like Wired and Newsweek) and continue to shred it. If you’re interested in journalism at all, this is where it’s at.

We’ll be having a formal recruitment meeting on Sunday, September 21, at 1:00 pm in 41 Wyllys, Room 112. Can’t make the meeting? Send an email to staff[at]wesleying[dot]org with “Recruitment” in the subject line. Tell us a little about yourself, any blogging experience you have (it’s fine if you don’t), and why you want to join Wesleying. We’ll be in touch.

Are You Wesleying?

Hey Readers,

We haven’t been able to post enough meta-blog posts this semester, so here’s one.

We’re recruiting again (not that we ever stop because you can join year round) because Wesleying is severely understaffed. We need writers, videographers, interviewers, photographers, Internet addicts, Photoshop fiends, homespun Wes historians, general Wesleyan-student enthusiasts like we’ve never needed them before (like, since 2009).

If you think Wesleying is cool, but more importantly, are motivated to write for us, we’d be happy to have you. In the immortal words of The Great Sheek, “All you need is Internet access, the ability to string sentences together coherently, and an interest in life at Wesleyan as it is, was, and might be.”

  4. A personal megaphone: shed light on campus issues that are close to home (or not).
  5. Know everything that’s happening on campus before anybody else.
  6. Access to the drama-filled amusement ride that is the Wesleying listserv.
  7. Wesleying alums have gone on to awesome publications and continue to shred it. If you’re interested in journalism at all, this is where it’s at.

Audition for Wesleying

Interested in auditioning for Wesleying, Wesleyan’s “sassiest and most WordPress-savvy online singing group”? Scroll on, dear one. Our blog could be your life.

Hey, readers. We’ve been pretty low-staffed lately (our seniors a.k.a. Zach, A-Batte, Syed, ehc etc. graduated and shit I really miss them), and much of our current staff is either abroad or graduating this school year. So it goes. Wesleying underwent a pretty wild generational shift back in 2010, when Sheek exited and handed over the reins, and we’re going through a pretty big one now that Zach‘s moved on to internet heaven. That’s where you step in.

In short, Wesleying is recruiting. We’ll be having a formal recruitment meeting tomorrow, September 24, at 9:00 pm in 41 Wyllys in Room 112. We’re looking for bloggers, journalists, writers, photographers, interviewers, social media types, homespun Wes historians, videographers, internet addicts, photoshop fiends, and web design wizards—whatever. Frosh especially welcome. If you love Wesleying and want to help make it the weird, irreverent, and colorful media space it has become—or if you just like blogging in your underwear—please stop by.
