ANNOUNCEMENT: Looking for New Reviewers (2017 Edition)

Hey! Do you love to write? Do you like junk food and/or fast food?

If so, then perhaps you’d like to be a reviewer for The Impulsive Buy. We are looking for several new contributors to write their thoughts about the latest junk food and fast food.

It’s a paid gig, but you should know that it’s only enough for you to have a small Taco Bell taco party or enough to partially fill a bathtub with store brand cheese balls on sale. If you end up being a finalist, then we will disclose how much we pay per review.

If you’d like to apply for the position, here’s what you’ll need to send:

  • One sample review in TIB format (nutrition facts, rating, price, pros, cons, etc at the bottom). The review MUST be a new junk food or fast food product (“New” meaning within the past four months. “Junk food or fast food” meaning stuff you’d be afraid to eat in front of your doctor). The sample review will help us determine if your writing style would be a good fit. The sample review length MUST be no more than 500 words and no less than 400 words (not including nutrition facts, rating, price, pros, cons, etc at the bottom of TIB reviews).
  • Photo(s) of the product you reviewed. (Full resolution versions, please!)
  • A bio that includes why you want to write for The Impulsive Buy.

A Few Notes:

  • We’re not only judging you on your review, but also your photos to see your photography skills (Tip: Light will help your photos a lot.) and how you write your bio (Tip: show your personality in it and if you have a writing background, you should share that).
  • Due to legal reasons, we can’t hire anyone under the age 18.
  • At this time, we’re only looking for writers located in the United States.
  • Please send your review, bio, and photos as separate attachments.

To apply, please email your sample review, pictures, and bio to theimpulsivebuy@gmail.com with “Grimace gives me nightmares” in the subject line. We will stop accepting applicants on Monday, November 13, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us.

Thank you.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Introducing TIB’s DQ Blizzard Reviewer, Joe

A wise man once said, “It’s dangerous to go alone.” Well, I presume it was a wise man. After all, how could an enigmatic cave hermit thrusting a deadly weapon into the hands of a child be anything other than a fount of wisdom? I believe the historical ranking of the wizened sages goes:

  1. Confucius
  2. Socrates
  3. Nameless, child endangering cave hermit

I however, offer something much more valuable than a mere warning and a trinket. I offer knowledge and foresight into the world of Dairy Queen Blizzards. I shall bear the enviable burden of sampling every new Blizzard Treat of the Month, along with returning offerings, and sharing my thoughts with you, my friend. I will be your guide in addition to arming you with the red plastic spoon plucked from the frozen sheath of your inverted delight.

To that end, let me tell you a little about myself. Because I transition with the grace of a rancor in a pottery shop, I was sired in an Illinoisan shire before spending many years aboard a Navy destroyer on a quest to cast the Onion Ring into the depths of Davy John’s Locker.

Hmmm, maybe I need to read those books again…

I leveled up upon returning home by earning a business degree and entering a career in the thrill-a-minute world of costing and pricing analysis . Much like actual hobbits, I spend many hours in the kitchen to indulge my sweet tooth and many more hours in the gym because of it. Eye roll-inducing puns put an impish grin on my face, and I love all things chocolate, peanut butter, and ketchup. The eagle-eyed amongst you may note that one of those things is not like the other, but that’s okay as it will have nothing to do with Blizzards…probably.

Enough about me though as I’m really here for you, dear reader. I hope that my tales will be illuminating or at the very least entertaining. I look forward to learning more about you as I share my exploits into a very cold and tasty world. Blizzards are coming, and the drive-thru is long and full of terrors.

ANNOUNCEMENT: We’re Looking For a Dairy Queen Blizzard Reviewer

Are you a card carrying member of the Dairy Queen Blizzard Fan Club? Do you eat EVERY Blizzard of the Month? Is there DQ vanilla soft serve running through your veins? Would you like to be paid to share your thoughts about every new Blizzard?

If that sounds like you, then maybe you should apply to be The Impulsive Buy’s DQ Blizzard reviewer.

Yes, we are hiring a contributor to write only DQ Blizzard reviews.

If you’d like to apply, this is what you need to send:

  1. One sample review of the newest Dairy Queen Blizzard in TIB format (nutrition facts, rating, price, pros, cons, etc at the bottom). The sample review length MUST be no more than 300 words and no less than 250 words (not including nutrition facts, rating, price, pros, cons, etc at the bottom of TIB reviews).
  2. Multiple photos of the Blizzard you reviewed. (Full resolution versions, please!)
  3. A bio that includes why you want to write DQ Blizzard reviews for The Impulsive Buy.

A Few Notes:

  1. We’re not only judging you on your review, but also your photos to see your photography skills (Tip: Light will help your photos a lot.) and how you write your bio (Tip: show your personality in it).
  2. We’re looking for a contributor who can do a quick turnaround with the review (2-3 days after new Blizzards are released).
  3. The writer will be paid for each review. It’s not much, but it’s enough to buy yourself a meal after eating a Blizzard.
  4. Due to legal reasons, we can’t hire anyone under the age 18.

To apply, please email your sample review, pictures, and bio to theimpulsivebuy@gmail.com with “BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR” in the subject line. We will stop accepting applicants on Sunday, July 30, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. HST.
