Do you love Greenpoint and want to contribute to the community in a positive way by working for a well respected and popular local blog? Greenpointers is hiring!!!

News Editor / Blog Manager

Can you write well researched, informative and fun blog posts (on the fly), manage a team of talented editors and contributors, while managing the day to day upkeep of a WordPress blog? Are you self-motivated, Greenpoint-obsessed, extremely organized and impeccably detailed? You know who you are! (Monthly Stipend, Immediate Hire)

Think Jonathan Schwartz’s Frank Sinatra Fridays – light, fun and creative blog posts for reading over a cup of coffee in McGolrick/Winthrop Park. You can get weird because it’s the weekend!

Local Ad Sales

Do you know all the local business owners by name and sincerely want them to succeed? Advertising is a crucial component of Greenpointers’ mission not only because the revenue funds our website and pays our writers, but because we directly promote small businesses that make our neighborhood awesome and give jobs to our friends!

Our Lady Libby V! Fish Eye Series

Libby VanderPloeg in her Greenpoint Apartment

I was super honored that Libby V asked me to take her portrait for a post about her on Design Sponge. Aside from being a super talented illustrator (she does our market posters) and a wonderful human, Libby has the most adorable and cozy apartment I have ever seen. I decided to kill two birds with one stone and also take her portrait as part of our new Fish Eye Series, in which we take you into the apartment of one of our talented contributors! Talk about an eye for design. You really can get to know a person by looking at what they put on their walls.

Read Design Sponge’s article about Libby V here. And check out her website for more of her design work.

At this point, Greenpointers does not have a budget to pay contributors. But you can take advantage of the immense traffic the website gets to promote your own endeavors as shamelessly as you want.
