We’re having a conversation about what it means to be a man in the 21st century. It’s the conversation no one else is having. And we’re hoping you’ll join.
We’re looking for people want to talk about men, and want to better understand the rapidly changing roles that are happening in the 21st century. If writing or creating videos (or any kind of multi-media) about the trials, the tribulations, and the joys of manhood appeals to you, we’d love for you to become a regular blogger. You will get a terrific platform (the total network is steadily growing, but right now gets almost 8 million pageviews a month) and an opportunity to help shape not only The Good Men Project itself, but the conversation about men in the world. There really is no limit to what you can blog about, as long as it relates in some way to things that men in today’s modern world care about (And trust us, that’s a whole lot of things). We are also looking for humor, insights, and raw honest truths. But mostly we’re looking for your own unique voice. First person narratives that lead to some deeper, universal understandings are always welcome here. Check out our about page if you want to learn more about who we are and how we’ve grown.
Virtually any well-written post about anything you can imagine that relates to men in the 21st century is something we’d consider publishing.
If you, or someone you know, is interested in becoming a blogger, vlogger or editor at The Good Men Project, please email Lisa Hickey at [email protected] with a short email about what interests you most about this conversation. We’ll want to know who you are, what you want to contribute, and how you expect to do it. Some sense of your writing (and life) experience would help too. You will need to show that you have good ideas, the capacity for brutal honesty and, hopefully, a sense of humor. You will need a social media platform—be prepared to tell us your twitter following, facebook fans, g+ profile and any other places you have a social media footprint. (Redditors get brownie points). We are happy to help you grow your network—in fact, one of the benefits to working with our platform is that you can expect to double your network size if you combine our platform with your own efforts towards growth. While standalone contributions are not paid, those who contribute on a set schedule or are Editors for The Good Men Project are offered a a percentage of the average revenue we get per pageview generated.
