Seeking Sun blog “big wig”

Are you an opinionated, computer-savvy person who could oversee our Lamorinda blog. We also could use some bloggers who could create a lively online narrative about all things Lamorinda. Our online team would provide ongoing guidance. The blog’s best material, including posts and reader comments, might be reverse published in the Sun as a weekly column.
Compensation per post is open to negotiation. If interested, email Leanne McLaughlin@bayareanewsgroup.com.
