CODOH has become static, stale, ossified. That’s a complaint we’ve heard a lot lately. If you don’t know what we mean by that, go to CODOHWeb and see how rarely and irregularly new items get posted there. Many events worth reporting have been and are being left out. It’s a shame.

There are several reasons for this, but at the end it boils down to the fact that no single person is fully dedicated to maintaining CODOHWeb, which is both an archive and a blog, or should be. We only have one irregular contributor...

That needs to change. With CODOH now having some regular income, we’ve decided to actually pay freelance bloggers to get involved. See our ad below.

In addition, we need to get our message out again. Since a video says way more than a million words, we’ve launched a new initiative to get our high-definition videos aired on local cable stations. Jim Rizoli gives us a nice introduction on how to do it in this issue, see pp. 11-13. This will be an ongoing campaign, and we will be reminding all of you again and again to become active in this regard. No excuses!

CODOH Pays Freelance Bloggers and Writers

  1. We are looking for individuals scouring the internet for items (articles, videos, sound recordings) worth mirroring in our CODOH library, with permission of the copyright owner, of course. We would pay $10 per item posted (since it’s basically only a copy and paste job). The items need to comply with CODOH’s philosophy. Tasks to be done, and pertinent skills required, are internet searches; communication with CODOH to get OK for each item, and then with copyright owner to obtain permission; copying items into the CODOH database, and some html tweaking where needed; filling in database-specific data.
  2. We are looking for individuals who can write original comments and summaries of current events in areas of interest for CODOH (historical revisionism, with focus on the Holocaust; free speech, censorship and violation of historical dissidents’ civil rights). The main focus is on English, but other languages are welcome (German, French, Spanish, Italian). Articles ought to be between 1000 and 8000 characters long. Payment is $10 per item plus $1 per 100 characters. Skills required: as under 1. (w/o html tweaking), plus good language and writing skills.
