Great Job Opening for Political Blogger

I wouldn’t normally give free advertising to a big media company like National Journal, but because the Hotline is searching for someone to oversee the wonderful “Blogometer,” I couldn’t resist.

For those of you who haven’t read “The Blogometer,” it’s a great resource for political junkies who crave a daily analysis of the movers and shakers in the world of blogs. From time to time, you’ll even read about the Right Angle.

Job Opening: The Hotline is seeking a staff writer to take the lead on “The Blogometer,” the daily feature that takes the temperature of the political blogosphere. Applicants must consider themselves regular consumers of political blogs (min. 2 years reading them), be familiar with nationally read blogs from across the spectrum; know how to use blog search engines/aggregators (such as Technorati and Memeorandum); be able to quickly analyze and synthesize developments in the news as well as summarize ongoing blog activity with brevity, clarity and accuracy. Excellent writing and time-management skills are also a must. As with every Hotline position, we don’t expect our writers to not have an opinion, we just expect them to keep it out of their work. Interested applicants should send their resumes to Josephine Vu at
