Keeping It Real — I’m Looking for a Virtual Assistant!!

It’s my three year blogoversary!!
I started Tatertots and Jello as a personal blog, as a place to keep my creative projects. And it has grown into something that I could not have imagined in my wildest dreams. I am loving this blogging world and the opportunities that TT&J has brought to me. I love creating project and promoting other people. 
The administrative side of TT&J has grown so demanding and I am so behind on emails. I’m so sorry if you have emailed an not heard back from me. I wish there were more hours in the day. I really want to focus more on creating projects because that is my passion.
And so — I’ve decided it’s time to hire some help!

I’m looking for a part-time ‘virtual’ assistant. I need someone to help me with my Weekend Wrap Up Parties which are averaging 800 link ups each week. As well as someone to help coordinate guest posts and coordinate advertising — about 10 hours a week. At least half of this time would require working on the weekends – I just wanted to put that out there :)
Requirements and Duties:
Strong knowledge of blogging and social media
Experience with Photoshop, a plus but not required
Demonstrate good work ethic, must be trustworthy, and self motivated
Ability to meet deadlines
Detail oriented
Excellent communication and follow up skills
Available throughout the day to check emails and answer questions.
 I would love to hire someone that has a blog and knows WordPress.
I am so excited to have someone join me in this wonderful journey.
Please send me your resume and if you have a blog, include a link!
PS — Have you ever driven past a discarded pallet? Pick it up and create something great! I am sharing 12 decorating projects using shipping pallets over at Babble’s New Home Ec today :) 
PPSTo celebrate my blogoversary — an awesome giveaway is coming up tomorrow!!

  28. skye @ neathering our fest says:

    Jen! Congrats on your blogiversary! You have come a long way in three years and you should be so proud of your blog – its the bees knees! I am interested in the virtual assistant position! I definitely meet all of the requirements but two – photoshop and wordpress. However – I can do a LOT to a photo using microsoft publisher and I have used paint.net a little. I would be so willing to learn photoshop though! (It's on my list of things to do…) As for WordPress I am also really wanting to learn about that as well. Please email me (skye dot nicole at yahoo dot com) to discuss details! I am interested!!

  29. Michelle@Somedaycrafts says:

    Yeah for you!!!! You need a break! I'm thrilled you are going to get a tiny little one on the weekends.

  30. Happy Bloggyversary!

  31. Happy Blogiversary :)

    Hope you'll find someone to help you very soon…

  32. Frostypop101 says:

    I would like to apply, I will work for free! the one catch is that I will only be available after 4 through 7 weekdays, on weekends from 7am through 7pm.
    I have my own blog (www.craftyfeelings.blogspot.com) and have a very basic knowledge of fireworks, which is the mac version of photoshop. I can make blog buttons, and basic html/java script coding. I would be very happy to deal with the emails, and the linkys!

  33. Alison@Oopsey Daisy says:

    Happy 3-year blogiversary, Jen!! Your blog is such an inspiration! I love that it's a place where creativity really begins and spreads around the blogging universe! You do a tremendous job–and I'm shocked that you have done it completely on your own all this time!! You must be Wonder Woman!! Thanks for all you do to inspire!


  34. Free Pretty Things For You says:

    I totally feel you on this!
    I need someone that knows wordpress ASAP!

    Big HUGS Sweet Friend!!
