After great success in Brazil, Italy, USA, UK, Spain, France and Germany BlastingNews is launching its website in Australia. We are therefore looking for some journalists to write news articles to generate initial content relevant to Australia. We need short, sharp and relevant news articles on current/trending topics in Australia related to politics, sports and entertainment. Each article would be 2000-3000 characters long and uploaded directly to our website. Pls see our US platform as an example (

As an initial step, we are willing to pay a fixed fee of AU$ 5 per article or AU$30 per 5 articles. If your articles are good, we could continue this as a month long engagement. Please note we are only looking for journalists in Australia.

Over the medium to long term our business model rewards the amount of traffic each article generates. This means that once the Australian platform grows each news article can have the potential of earning up to AUD 200

Blasting News is the largest global social news publisher – set up in mid-2013, it is now the 144th most visited websites in the world (Alexa Ranking), counting on 90+ million monthly unique on-site visitors, thanks to 1.5 million blasters from 34 countries, who publish 22.000+ original news each month in 24 different languages. Blasting News has been selected and funded by Google Innovation Fund (DNI) to revolutionise digital information in Europe. Blasting News has offices in London (Head-Quarter), New York, Sao Paulo, Milan, Rome and soon Singapore.

Blasting News is a new disruptive concept of journalism, being made by the people, for the people. News is produced by delocalized freelance contributors (Blasters), fact-checked and curated by a quality team of senior professionals. Furthermore, news is distributed by Social Blasters, a global team of top digital influencers. All the processes are fueled by the crowd, without any central newsroom - thanks to an extensive use of technology (the core stages are managed by algorithms, some of which are patent-pending).
