Want a "job" blogging?

From the email inbox:

The American Constitution Society is seeking volunteer Blog Editors to research and write content, moderate comments and edit submissions on a progressive blog monitoring legal news and public policy. Blog editors will interact with ACS staff and distinguished guest bloggers to create a national forum for progressive legal and policy discussion. Blog Editors will be expected to contribute approximately 3-5 hours a week to writing, editing and moderation. Their principal duty will be assuming responsibility for all blog content for one day each week, including daily news roundups and breaking news summaries.

It's about time the ACS got a blog. I'm not sure how all this volunteer blog editor business will work, but at least it's a start.

I think it could work quite well... that is, if they structure the blog correctly, and if there are some clear style guides available to contributors. Look at Boing Boing, which is a pretty successful multi-author blog, which routinely features a guest blogger.

Oh sure, there are lots of multi-author blogs that work well, but how many of them are trying to represent an organization of some kind? Not that that needs to make a difference. If ACS gives its student blog editors freedom to be themselves and to have conversations about the things that seem important to them, this could be a great thing. Of course, I also hope they use the blog as a way to stream updates about the ACS itself to law students and lawyers. Right now, if you go to the ACS website, it doesn't look like that much is happening (except for the convention a couple of weeks ago). A blog could make the organization seem more active and lively. We'll see...
