You might make a great contributor to our Motley Fool Blog Network.

The Motley Fool Blog network has two goals:

· To have you produce outstanding and useful content that reaches a broad expanse of individual investors,

· To help you improve your analysis and your writing to the point that you can earn a contract writing with Fool.com (a role that can mean over $100,000 a year!). Together, we'll be helping the world invest better.

Here’s a summary of where we are and our vision of where we’re heading. Once you’ve read it all (and you have to promise to read everything), just head to http://beta.fool.com/join and you’ll be ready to get started.

Thousands have expressed strong interest in joining the Fool’s newest community, and we’re seeing a gravitational force now that we’ve started to roll, as word spreads of the quality of our content, the breadth of our distribution, and the benefits we are able to offer our bloggers. In the coming years, tens of thousands will join. We’re at the start of something very big.

We’re proud that as we’ve reached out to bloggers, we have not sacrificed on any quality standard, nor will we ever. We will not become another pump-and-dump message board that allows anonymous bloggers free reign. We only want and will only syndicate quality insights created by writers who stand behind their work. And we ask you to hold us personally accountable to ensure that we never devolve into a site none of us wants to read.

We’re also pleased to let you know that we have decided on a pay structure that is clear, transparent, and, we hope, generous. If you write a post that is thoughtful, well-written, and makes specific and relevant mention of businesses and their tickers, we will syndicate that entry (i.e., publish it to the Yahoo! Finance, MSN Money, and DailyFinance ticker feeds) and pay you $50. If you develop a track record of high performance (specifically, if your 10 most recent posts average 2,500 sessions) and if your posts are viewed as top-notch by our team at the Fool, you will be paid $100 per post.

For some of you, that might just be a starting point for your relationship with the Fool. We’ll be keeping an eye out for the best writers and the bloggers who earn the biggest followings. Some of you will get offers to join us at Fool HQ (we've already had several bloggers join us in full-time jobs). Other top performers will be offered writer contracts, positions that can earn you $100,000 a year or more.

If you’re ready to get started, just head to http://beta.fool.com/join and you’re on your way. If you have questions, shoot us an email at blog@fool.com.
