Muddy editors wanted!
Oh my flipping Nora. I have some super exciting news (and, er, how do you like my new make up look? What do you mean I look like a doll?).
So the news… Muddy is on the grow! The Muddy you’re reading now – my lovely digital baby – covers Bucks, Oxon and the Oxfordshire side of the Cotswolds and will be written by me for, like, ever. That’s a given.
But I’ve fielded pleas from other counties about getting their own Muddy Stilettos for ages. Muddy Herts started last year, and now the time has come to totter into other counties too.
As so often happens with Muddy, a lot of the insights, new openings, snippets of info and brilliant advice comes from readers – I rely heavily on you getting in touch and sharing your opinions. Which is why I thought I’d ask for your help on this one.
This is what I’m looking for – brilliant county editors, primarily in the South of England. No doubt you have friends in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Warwickshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Essex, Sussex, Norfolk, Surrey, Suffolk (*breathe*… and continue),
…Cambridgeshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Northamptonshire, and er, well, there’s bound to be places I’ve forgotten but you get my drift. I’m also interested in finding brilliant editors in Yorkshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire and Nottinghamshire.
Maybe your friend used to have a full-on career, stopped to have kids, didn’t want to get back into the rat race, and is now looking for a new career that they can do around their family life, with lots of fun attached.
If you know someone who you think would be a good Muddy editor, pleasy please do let them send them this link for the job here. Tweet it, FB it, text it, instagram it, mail it, pick up the blower, get word out however you fancy it, but please do it asap because I’m on the hunt now and it would be a massive shame to miss out on somebody brilliant.
Naturally it’s a job that’s particularly suited to established journalists, PRs, general media types with experience of lifestyle writing and a weakness for champers in the morning (don’t knock it, it works). Having kids is an advantage at Muddy Stilettos – it’s not often you get to hear that with a job description is it?! – and is the desire to run their own business, as the Muddy county jobs are franchise opportunites.
So that’s it! If you can spread the word peeps I’d be massively grateful. Thanks for your help, as always. You rockerroony.
