Food Job: Food Legend Researcher/Writer

Wikipedia, the revered free online encyclopedia, rules do not allow anyone to write his/her own profile. As my daughter would say, “No worries.” Here’s a super job for a researcher/writer. Write profiles of famous food people and culinary legends for Wikipedia.

The research involves researching the person, writing the copy (and inserting client edits and updates), providing supporting links and tags along with an image of the subject. It also helps to look at Wikipedia’s profiles of culinary legends like Julia Child, Robert Mondavi, even those curiously American little yellow peeps.

This effort also involves figuring out a fee for your work. It will take more time than you might estimate, so do a trial run before deciding how much to charge.

I suggest $500 as a starting point.
