be an editorial assistant at Federated Media

Comment Blitzing has other rewards than simply attracting visitors, and comments, to your blog.

I suddenly, just a few minutes ago, foun myself in discussions regarding a job as an Editorial Assistant at John Battelle's new Federated Media company, via Comment Blitzing.

I had gone to his Search Blog to post a comment, and saw that his current-most post was a job offer. I zapped an email AND a blog comment to him, and he instantly fired off an email to me, saying he wanted to talk about the position.

I had to drop out of the consideration, due to the requirement of moving to Sausalito, CA.

They have a few positions available. See John Battelle Search Blog, or Federated Media site, for more details.

Oh, and go buy his new book about how Google and others have changed business forever: The Search.

Federated Media helps leading independent authors turn their publications into sole-proprietor media businesses,at the same time providing media buyers with a scalable mechanism by which they can tap the audience loyalty and engagement that are fostered by the best blogs.

FM works by "federating" authors into topic clusters.

Our first federation focuses on digital business and culture, and includes sites such as Boing Boing, Matt Haughey's Metafilter and PVRblog, Merlin Mann's 43 Folders, Om Malik's Broadband Blog, Glenn Fleishman's Wi-Fi Networking News, John Battelle's Searchblog, Michael Arrington's TechCrunch, Gareth Branwyn's STREETtech and many more. We plan to roll out new federations in the coming months.
