Orble advertises for pro bloggers through Seek

I keep an eye on Seek's job listings for various reasons, and this one jumped out at me this morning as the first listing I've seen looking for pro bloggers. Orble, which I hadn't heard of but appears to be Perth-based and have been in existence for four months, is a rather average-looking blog network, but they promise to hire one new blogger each week for a minimum A$40 per week for eight weeks, with the expectation that you'd blog for 30 minutes each day.

It's not going to change the world, but it's good to see another player in the Australian market, giving b5 media and their ilk a bit of competition. Orble's goals look to be smaller than b5's at this stage, but that's not a bad thing. It takes all sizes to grow an industry.

A relevant link: a rejected applicant posts his rejection letter which has some interesting details.

I jumped at the Orbal thing when i saw it. wrote out 2, 300 word mock posts, they liked it but would only give me a commission spot since they get so many applicants. with commission should be making 12c-$100 (AUSD)a week.
they asked me to find a .com that i wanted and i did. then they told me it would be up within 24hours. i think it just came up today and its a bit of a wreck really, I dont know what im looking at..+ it doesnt meet W3C standards with its HTML. needs a little work i think. maybe i should offer up a sollution for their HTML...i will see how bizy i am. anyway the site is www.360thumbs.com
check it out for yourslef.
