Hi there,

We are looking for somebody to help us out with the ShakiraMedia website. I'm sure there are two questions popping into your head right now: What would I have to do and what is in it for me??

Well, let me explain. We would like more news items on http://www.shakiramedia.com/news to be posted. Even though we now do post regularly, it would be a good idea to add even the rumors and other news that we might be missing right now. Besides that we are looking for somebody who might want to archive the major events in our timeline: http://www.shakiramedia.com/timeline

What would you get in return? You'll have a chance to work on the biggest Shakira fansite, your newsitems will be read by thousands, and every now and then you might be in for something special. Oh and if you like you can get an username@shakiramedia.com email address...plus your details at the contact page.

What do we expect? We expect you to be able to write correct english, we expect you to like Shakira, and we expect you to be enthusiastic about working on the site! Commitment-wise, there is none. But we do like it if you would be active at least every now and then so that the news archive will improve with more articles.

So..interested? We will hold a small selection-round (A la American Idols) and select the best one. So in order to apply, please send us an example newsitem by PM. It has to be written by you, and it has to be about something that is currently not on the website. Subject can be anything Shakira-related. In 1-2 weeks (tops) we will select the winner ::drool::

Send your newsitem either by PM to both Wolfy and myself (Xandrios). Alternatively you can submit by email, send to both shakiramedia @ gmail.com and xandrios @ xandrios.net. Please do not post your newsitem here.

Thanks!
ShakiraMedia team

I propose Lahmeik, or "меики" for the news job, as he is a journalism student and has written a lot of articles about shakira and her music, which i happen to find all of them really good.

let me ask him if he is interested, hold on.

I would like to do the Timeline think, but I think noone would be happy with that.
And to be honest I think I would have to learn better english.

You could try it, make the timeline of the month october and PM it to xander and Wolfy. It's not much text. For example:

November
22- Attending the American Music Awards in California, LA.
20 - Rehearsing for the American Music Awards
19 - Performing on Good Morning America
etc.

Give it a try! :) And if we think your English is not sufficient, we'll be honest.

Is that all you wanted? I totally would have done it, but I thought you wanted like a full article.
Did you guys pick someone to help with the timeline?

I can type 100+ wpm, I love Shakira, and I'm always among the first to find out new news. I even can make small things sound like amazing feats of massive importance!

example:


Shakira receives yet another view for 'Waka Waka'!


When Shakira released her music video in August of last year, the views flew in at an astonishing rate. 50 million, 100 million, 200, 300! The critics said that this enthusiasm would die as the World Cup faded into the past, and for a while it seemed likely, as the views-per-day on the video slowly curved to zero... But the critics were in for a suprise. Late last night, ardent Shakira fan Jose Parensa sat down to his computer to check his email, when he was struck by an urge to watch the catchy 'Waka Waka' he'd been humming all week. Feverishly, he punched in the keys to view the video on youtube. Five minutes later, the fate of youtube's 'most popular' list was changed forever. The video was alive again. All was not lost! That is right, dear reader- the view count for this amazing musical work spiked from 301,250,234 all the way to 301,250,235!!! This is unprecedented in internet history, a full view in just a little over 3 minutes!
"This is incredible! It's like the sun is finally coming out for me!" the Columbian-born superstar exclaimed upon hearing the news.
A dedicated fan myself, I'd like to encourage all of you to watch Shakira's newest video, 'Sale El Sol' to support this amazing artist.

^epic fail, but if it made you smile, my job here is done.

Is this position still 'open'? And could I just send a potential article to Xandrios and if he sees fit, he can put it on the site?
I couldn't promise anything too regular as news on her seems slow to find/surface to begin with, but things like view count updates, fan events, fan collaboration videos, tour dates, behind-the-scenes, on-the-street pics, etc might help if used sparingly...

Thanks!
NNN
