Looking for Someone To Post News Stories to a Wordpress Blog, 3-5 Hours per Day

I am starting a Wordpress website devoted to interesting news stories from around the web. I plan to post links to about 50 news stories every day.

The site is similar to this one: [url removed, login to view] (but it is NOT actually that one).

In order to find those 50 stories, I generally look at about 200 different websites per day, and select from there.

However, I’ve found that there’s simply too much work for one person, so I am looking to outsource some of the work via Upwork. This is how it will work:

The work of finding and posting the day’s stories breaks down into 3 distinct steps:

STEP 1: Opening those 200 tabs and selecting the stories I want from them. In other words, narrowing the 200 tabs down to (approximately) 50.

STEP 2: Transferring the information from each news story to a separate post on the Wordpress site. Specifically, this means cutting and pasting the URL, the headline, and the first paragraph of the story into a post. Then a photo must be found to accompany the story (it can’t be one from the actual story, for legal reasons, so a photo has to be found elsewhere on the web and then uploaded; I will explain how this is done) and some other information and formatting need be added. Then each post gets saved as a DRAFT.

STEP 3: The draft post, which contains just the basic information of the story, then has to be re-written using the “style of the site,” polished, and then finally scheduled for posting.

As I said, I find that for one person, there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to do all 3 steps. So, I am looking to find one or two or three people here on Upwork to do STEP 2 for me. Here is how that would work…

I start working at about 8:30 AM New York City time (2:30 AM in Cape Town, 5:30 PM in Karachi, 6 PM in Mumbai, and 8:30 PM in Manilla), and finish by about 6 PM (12 AM in Cape Town, 3 AM in Karachi, 3:30 AM in Mumbai, and 6 AM in Manilla). At the end of my workday in New York, I will send a list of approximately 50 URLs to my “Upworker,” either by email or via some bookmarking site that we would both have access to. The Upworker’s job would then be to perform STEP 2 for all the URLs sent. I am guessing that this will take somewhere between 3 and 5 hours. Then, when I start work at 8:30 AM New York time, I would log into the site and find all the draft emails from the Upworker, which I would then perform STEP 3 on. Once that is done, I would do STEP 1 again and the whole thing would start again.

I am probably looking for more than one Upworker, as I doubt any one person will want to/be able to do the job every single day, seven days a week.

Right now I am looking to try out several people, to find a few that I would like to work with on an ongoing basis.

Of course, I will pay everyone that I “try out.” I am not looking to use people’s time and not pay them.

PLEASE NOTE that I am not a company, I am just a person, and I am funding all of this myself (while I am not bringing in any income), so to be honest, I don’t have a lot of money to spend on this. (It is also, frankly, an unexpected cost that I didn’t foresee, but I didn’t realize how long the whole finding-and-posting process would take until i started doing it.)

SO, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO “TRY OUT” FOR THIS LONG-TERM POSITION, please write me back and let me know (1) whether you have 3 to 5 hours a day to commit to such a project, and if you do, then (2) how much you would charge an hour.

I will then select some people to “try out” once or twice (for which each person will be paid), and then I’ll select between 1 and 3 people to go forward with for the longer term.

Please let me know and, for those selected, I’ll get back to you with all the details.
