  2. The position requires that you NOT be "anonymous". Your real name and picture will be placed on the blog. And you must be an adult (21 or over).
  3. You must be a good, intelligent, original writer. That means quality content that readers will find impossible to ignore. This is the most important foundation of a blog. Here's an example, from two of our current bloggers, to give you an idea of what we consider good writing. Blog 1, Blog 2.
  4. You should be willing to speak out, question what's going on around you as it pertains to your topic. You shouldn't be afraid to bring ignored or less popular aspects of the topic to the light. You must be willing to share pertinent information and personal experiences with others.
  5. Possess excellent spelling and grammar skills.
  6. Promoting: Creating buzz around your blog (through your website, current blog, facebook, twitter, google+, etc).
  7. Be able to respond appropriately to reader comments.
  8. Experience using Wordpress or other blogging software and understand how to structure and format posts so that they are presented in a clean and professional manner a plus.
  9. Make a one year commitment to blogging for us. Be able to generate 1 or 2 (your option) 350-450 word articles a week, plus one video a month. (If you don't know how, don't worry, we'll help you. It's easy.)
  10. You have to be reliable and self-motivated.

The above description describes the priority functions of the blogging job.

If you are interested and have what it takes, please send us an email (info (AT) healthyplace (DOT) com, subject header: blogger position) with the following:

  1. Your name
  2. Email address
  3. Phone number and best day/time to contact you

  6. A 350-400 word sample blog post on your desired topic (word doc attachment). Must be included with application to be considered.
  7. Links to your current blog/website and social media accounts (Google+, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin)

We appreciate your time and interest and look forward to hearing from you. Also, if you happen to know of anyone you think might be interested and qualified to blog with HealthyPlace, I hope you'll pass this onto them.   (We will also consider video bloggers.)

What We Seek to Accomplish Through the HealthyPlace.com Website

Over one million people a month come to HealthyPlace.com. Everyday, for the people who work here, our goal is to provide trustworthy information and useful resources for understanding, preventing and seeking appropriate treatment of mental health conditions. In addition, we have the HealthyPlace Mental Health Support Network, where our members journal about their experiences, post on condition-specific boards, chat and support each other. If you are a person with a mental health condition, or a family member or friend, we invite you to participate and become a part of the HealthyPlace community.

Background of HealthyPlace.com

HealthyPlace has been in existence since 1999. Our most recent significant update to the HealthyPlace website was on January 31, 2012. We opened our redesigned website with expanded, highly relevant information on depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, eating disorders, addictions and more. We also have new, unique tools in place like the HealthyPlace Mediminder (our medication reminder tool) and the HealthyPlace Mood Tracker, a specially designed mood journal that not only helps people with mood disorders keep track of their moods, but can also notify their doctor, therapist, family member or caregiver in case their levels of depression or mania reach dangerous levels. And there's the first of it's kind, HealthyPlace Mental Health TV Show, our live show where people share their personal stories of living with a psychological disorder and doctors, therapists and counselors share their expertise in treating mental health conditoins.

HealthyPlace, Inc. - the Company

So you know, HealthyPlace is a privately held company started by people who are committed to the idea of reducing the stigma surrounding mental health and who feel that making authoritative mental health information available to the general public is a key part of achieving that goal. We are based in San Antonio, Texas.   Our revenues are generated exclusively through the sale of advertising on the HealthyPlace website. HealthyPlace is not owned or directed by companies that sell any products or medications. None of the articles are written or influenced by companies advertising on our website. All advertisements and sponsorships are clearly identified and labeled. (you can read our editorial and advertising policies) As a company and general policy of our website, we do not make any claims relating to the benefit or performance of a specific medical treatment, commercial product or service. We strongly believe that the individual and their healthcare provider should work in concert to determine what the best treatment is for that person's particular situation.
