Help Wanted: Identify the Best Livable Streets Blogs. $20/Hour.

Update: Thanks everyone. The position has been filled. If you’d like to help out as a volunteer, we’d appreciate that as well. Using del.icio.us, bookmark your favorite blogs "livable-streets-network."

Are any regular Streetsblog readers available for a part-time project?

As part of our forthcoming redesign (more on that soon) we are looking to build a comprehensive list of the very best "Livable Streets" blogs in the United States. Regular readers may recall that we made a similar request for help about a year ago and got lots of great responses in the comments section.

This time around we would like to find one or more regular Streetsblog readers who would be available to spend 50 to 80 hours over the next three weeks to step up the effort to create the most comprehensive list of high-quality, regularly-updated blogs covering the topics that we focus on here at Streetsblog — sustainable transport, smart growth, urban environmentalism, progressive urban planning and bicycling, pedestrian and public space issues. We’ll pay $20 per hour. The hours are flexible. You can work at home. Knowing how to find your way around a spreadsheet and a firm, innate understanding of our "beat" is probably all you really need.

If you’re interested, shoot an email to tips@streetsblog.org. Feel free to attach a resume but a few lines describing why you’re good for the job would probably be best. Of course, if you’re not looking for part-time work but you want to get the list started in the comments section, that would be helpful and appreciated as well.
