Help Wanted

I need a blogger
I'm holding out for a blogger 'til the end of the night
She's gotta be strong
And she's gotta post fast
And she's gotta be fresh from the right

Great Opportunity for Right-leaning Canadian Political Blogger!

Attention right-leaning Canadian political bloggers! The recent departures and/or hibernation of some of Canada's most interesting right-leaning political bloggers has created a vacancy in the CAtO Blogroll. Are you the fresh thinker who can fill this void?

About CAtO:

A dynamic, peopleperson driven venture, CAtO is revolutionizing the synergy between out-of-the-box real time insight (random opinions) and the robust provision of just-in-time opinion-based communication conduits (links).

The position:

Over to the right hand side of the screen, with the rest of the political bloggers. Some scrolling may be required.


Must have at least 2 weeks of hands-on blogging experience
Excellent oral and written communication skills (OK, written will do)
Team player with positive 'con-do' attitude
Capable of mustering a coherent argument on a reasonably consistent basis
Ability to maintain political position to the right of CAtO editorial staff without abandoning science, compassion, basic decency and/or reason.
Creative and strategic thinker who thrives for continuous challenges and personal growth (note: this point is more of a 'nice-to-have' than a real must)


CAtO offers an innovative, high growth fast paced environment which can help you develop and prosper in your blogging career. We offer an attractive Total Rewards compensation and benefits package that rewards excellence and retains top performers.

More to the point, here's what you'll get:
One permanent link on CAtO blogroll under the top-billed 'Canadian Political Blogs' category (Note: initial placement will be at bottom of blogroll with excellent opportunities for ascension - no, not that kind of ascension)
Additional 'in-post' links awarded on a merit basis.

Note: CAtO is an equal opportunity blogroller.

Inquiries and/or recommendations should be forwarded to the editor, or can be left in comments on this posting.

Note: thanks to Workopolis job postings for providing most of the text of this post.


  • I like Candace from Waking Up On Planet X. She's very right-wing, so she's in rather a different category from Olaf or Andrew from Bound By Gravity, but she's always respectful and has often made me think.

    She doesn't post enough, though (yeah, yeah, I should talk...).

  • Hey! If you stand on your head, I'm a right leaning blogger!

    Actually, I second Candace.

  • Wow. I quickly checked out Waking Up on Planet X and Candace definitely "leans" to the right! Her latest article was quite funny and I particularly liked her WTF. I also noticed that she is single;)

  • So it looks like Candace is pitching a shutout 2-0 so far. I'll have to update my blogroll sometime in the next couple of days.

    I hope that anonymous comment wasn't from my mom...

  • Oh yeah, definitely Candace....

  • All right, I'll take it. In return...the compensation end of these to be relocated somewhere that is not -24. Deal?

    I can communicate and muster with the best of them...can absolutely maintain political position without abandoning science, compassion and reason...but I don't know. Sometimes when the chips are down basic decency's gotta go ( but lets keep that on the D.L.)

    Very creative...strategic thinker? Yep.

    To be honest though...I've never blogged. And my grandmother always said, " When it comes to being honest, always," no wait..."never." Forget it.

    Don't need total rewards...benefits...whatever. I'm low maintanence. Just no more -20somethings and windchill factors.

    Do we have a deal?
