Information for the blog/website: A blog for the executives in and around the mobile industry
Industry: Technology
Topic: mobile
Tone: Informal/Casual
Outline & Structure: I used to regularly interview senior executives in the mobile industry and publish the resulting blog posts on my site, Mobile Industry Review. My other consulting work commitments make it difficult to dedicate the time to organising and managing this so I'd like someone to help me out.

It's actually rather straight forward work. But it needs to be done by someone with a bit of passion and desire to do a good job rather than a cut-n-paste.

For simplicity, here's how I normally do things:

1. I arrange with a PR representative that I'd like to do an interview with an executive -- usually from a company who's currently courting some press releases.
2. I send over some questions -- typically these are from a default set, particularly if I'm doing a standard '15 questions with Bob' profile piece. But -- and this is the science bit -- it's important that more than half a second of consideration goes into making sure the questions are good ones. I can advise and review by email prior to sending.
3. The PR accepts the questions and then manages the response from the individual executive.
4. The resulting questions and answers are emailed back -- sometimes in Word, sometimes in plain text. They might also send a profile picture.
5. I need this to be cut and pasted into a Wordpress post along with the profile picture and a link to the company's website.
6. I need you to add a bit of an intro to the piece (e.g. "This week we're talking with Bob from ACME who's company has recently launched a Widget...")
7. Let me confirm the copy and then publish.

And repeat. (In some cases I correspond with the executive directly, other times it's their PR).

Here's a really old example:

I'll set you up an @mobileindustryreview.com redirect or full inbox to help. I've plenty of contacts who'd like to be featured -- however I'd welcome suggestions. And if you've any experience reaching out to PRs, that would be useful. Certainly not required though.

I don't have a specific budget in mind so I'd like you to set my expectations.

Ideally I'd like to run a few of these per week depending on what kind of costs we agree. I'm open to suggestions on how best to structure a working arrangement.

You can work from anywhere.

I need you to be utterly fluent in English and be familiar with the Wordpress publishing system (really easy).

Any questions let me know,
