Cry for Help

Help is looking for some smart and resourceful people to work in a convivial virtual environment helping to deliver enlightened perspectives on progressive Southern culture and politics. Positions are part time, for no pay, but include the benefit of knowing you are a part of something trying to make a difference.

  • Community Engagement Manager: moderate comments, engage readers and poke around the site making sure everything is as it should be. Email: [email protected].
  • Author Relationship Director: reach out to new writers, contact writers who aren’t, set up and update author profiles, communicate with guest writers and manage creative commons relationships. Email: [email protected].
  • Social Marketing Guru: plan, manage, post and engage the Dew’s followers all over the web. Email: [email protected].
  • Web Research Executive: spend your leisure hours searching the web, finding important stories and videos, and sharing them with our readers: Email: [email protected].
  • Dew Business Manager: plan and run our non-commercial, almost no revenue except from the donation of our readers, business. Email: [email protected].
  • Editorial Comrades: read, prep, art direct and post stories. We really need some help. Email: [email protected].

Right now, the Dew is just three volunteers who work 24/7/365. We have reached the limit of what we can dew and really need help. We have to get better organized and none of us are any good at that. If you have some time, we would really love to hear from you.

I’m just a plateaued-out plain person with too much time on his hands fighting the never ending lingual battle with windmills for truth, justice and the American way or something like that. Here are some reader comments on my writing: “Enough with the cynicism. One doesn’t have to be Pollyanna to reject the sky is falling fatalism of Lee Leslie’s posts.” “You moron.” “Again, another example of your simple-minded, scare-mongering, label-baiting method of argumentation that supports the angry left’s position.” “Ah, Lee, you traffic in the most predictable, hackneyed leftist rhetoric that brought us to the current state of political leadership.” “You negative SOB! You destroyed all my hope, aspiration, desperation, even.” “Don’t you LIBERALS realize what this COMMIE is talking about is SOCIALISM?!?!?!” “Thank you for wonderful nasty artful toxic antidote to this stupidity in the name of individual rights.” “I trust you meant “bastard” in the truest father-less sense of the word.” “That’s the first time I ran out of breath just from reading!” “You helped me hold my head a little higher today.” “Makes me cry every time I read it.” “Thanks for the article. I needed something to make me laugh this mourning.” “If it weren’t so sad I would laugh.” "... the man who for fun and personal growth (not to mention rage assuagion) can skin a whale of bullshit and rack all the meat (and rot) in the larder replete with charts and graphs and a kindness..."“Amen, brother.”

    I was asked to post the response sent to one of the few responses we have had so far:

    Thank you submitting your employment application for  As I’m sure your are aware <>, unemployment is quite high around the world resulting in a significant number of highly qualified applicants – particularly from India and the Baltic States. While we expected that we would have to pay zero for this position, because of the competitive hiring situation, many applicants have included in their emails, an offer to pay us for the privilege of working at the Dew – this is, after all, the free market. You may wish to resubmit your application. All major credit cards are accepted.
 is an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE). Qualified applicants are considered for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, political persuasion, body weight, facial hair, tattoos, sense of humor, disability, or veteran status. If you need assistance or an accommodation during the application process because of a disability, or if you are just plain dense, it is available upon request. The company is pleased to provide such assistance, and no applicant will be penalized as a result of such a request. Your application will be reviewed in the order in which it was received.

    Helping on the Dew is a great hobby that you can do in spare time. It’s better than crossword puzzles for keeping your mind alert; you make interesting new friends; you become a part of something that does some good; you get to inject your ideas of what is important on the site; and, it really is fun.
    We need people who could help post stories – finding or licensing photos; a quick check of the content; adding the search terms; and assigning page position – take about 30 minutes each.
    We need people who might enjoy searching sites, which we have agreements to cross-post stories; finding stories you believe should be on dew because they are important and relevant; setting up guest author profiles; copying and posting their stories here (we’ll show you the way).
    We need people who will moderate comments; find and share our dewtubes; find new writers who might like to also post on the dew; managing our Facebook and Twitter pages; and reaching out to writers who frequently wrote for the dew and find out why they aren’t now.
    We also need a someone or two who has a talent for managing process and making sure we are all working together.
    If nothing else, why not just try helping and see if you like it. Please.

  3. This isn’t a threat, but… two of the three people who do all the work to make the Dew happen have been in the hospital recently. Prognosis good, but we really need some people to step up and help out. Write [email protected] if you can help.
