Want to get rich writing about the music you like? Join Us!

I went through my last 20 reviews to see how much desperate I really am to recruit at least another reviewer for the site. Here is the thing, I’m starting to sound repetitive and it’s tiring to see my name on all the reviews. My collaborators are awesome, but very busy guys, Jean-Stephane Beriot is currently in Argentina working with a superstar (sorry, can’t share too much about it), and Andrew Casillas is shaping his lawyer career (that should tell you). I’ve been jobless for a while, and still going to college somehow, so I’m the only one who can put some energy into this. So I’m looking for somebody out there who wants to join the club.

Want to get rich writing about the music you like?!!!!!!!!
If yes, stop reading.

Ok, let me explain. Yes, we do have ads but it’s not like I’m getting good money from them, just you get an idea, last week the ads revenue finally hit the $20.00 mark! So yeah, not even enough for hosting our domain. I’m totally treating myself with that money; I’ll discover McDonald’s value meal like never before. But enough with the cash, it’s never been a problem, just clearing it out for those that are interested in joining us. We need someone who knows how to review albums, or is in the process, we’re still learning ourselves. As far as this blog goes, we’re not really looking for news-related articles; it’s just not what we’re aiming for right now. Show some critical thinking; those classes need some use for sure. We’re picky by the way.

Five things that would get you out of our consideration right away.
1. If you like Mana
2. If you can't tell the difference between Tego Calderon and Daddy Yankee
3. If you think Latin Alternative is dead and you're stuck in some other time

  1. #8 brings up a funny thought...
    notice how a "Colorist" is an actual "color provider" rather than a "color hater"...

  2. Suerte con el Fonograma Army!!

    Yo siempre soñé con ser un miembro fonogramático pero también estoy con el tiempo en mi contra, y ojalá no perjudique las salidas de mi blog.
