I’m expanding the team before I go on a long leave – till January or maybe February, next year! Mom is getting her hip replacement surgery scheduled and I need to be with her full-time. I also think I need some time to focus on my health before into full-time blogging again! (Just recovered from a bad typhoid fever!)
So I’m looking forward to work with a (small) team of 5 passionate writers who are into beauty blogging; who can understand the requirements/format of reviews on MABH! Also, it’s not like I’m going to disappear from the blog, I’ll still be writing a post every now and then! I just thought I should settle with a team that can make up my absence!
Vacancies : 5; Monthly Salary : 6000 – 12000 INR
Why new writers? : You might have noticed that the posting schedule has become irregular compared to how it used to be some 2-3 years ago. I remember updating the blog 5 or more times in a day with engaging content way back in 2013. I loved receiving all the comments and love from you! Now it’s truly sad to see no updates/irregular updates on the space! I want to change that for the good as I’ve been constantly receiving emails from the readers on how they want me to get back to full-time blogging!
I must say this – I’m happy working with my team of freelance writers now but I still feel there’s more room for improvement, especially when it comes to the quality of images! Only a very few seem to understand the importance of good quality images. Hence, I’m looking for interns/writers who are not only passionate about writing but who can also click appealing images for the blog since I do not want to compromise on the image quality for obvious reasons. (Readers love appealing images so do the search engines!) So if you’re an existing writer, you can still apply for the internship! (with new image samples! Tip : use color papers/flowers and a good quality camera!) I welcome my fellow bloggers as well! (I’d love to work with you!)
Paid Internship – Details!
Freelance? : The vacancy for freelance writers (here) is still open but at this time, I’m thinking to hire part time/full time interns for the blog who can work with me for the next 3-6 months on a daily basis! If
I’m the readers are impressed with your work, I’d be more than happy to make you a permanent member of the MABH team after your internship! (i.e a full time writer/editor! And that guarantees you a monthly income!)
Workplace : As a beauty blogging intern, you can work comfortably from your home! If you’re a Chennaite, we can meet to discuss the work/more on blogging however I welcome writers anywhere inside the country! We can discuss things online! (If you don’t live in India, you can still apply but you should have a valid Indian bank account to receive the payments into!)
Blog posts : For the internship, I am looking for writers who can write 5-6 posts in a week! (Reviews, DIYs, makeup tutorials etc.) If you think you can contribute only a limited number of posts/month, you can let me know that! If you’re a available full time, we can discuss more on how we can work together to improve the blog!
Main requirement : You should have a DSLR, if not a good quality camera to be a part of the team! (I don’t accept mobile camera images unless you have a mobile phone that can click excellent, crisp images!) Attaching samples below!
Experience isn’t mandatory but at the same time, you should have the ability to write/click as per the blog’s format and you should be able to meet the deadlines! As I mentioned earlier, I can help you learn but I won’t compromise on the quality of the work.
You should have a good internet connection; you should be able to respond to emails and reader comments. If you’re active on social media, that’s a plus! (Please share your social media links when you apply!)
On what basis are you selected? : I’ll be welcoming 5 interns into the team who write/click well among the applicants! Write well in the sense – neat, error-free content that is engaging. Images – as per the format! (I’ll share the format with you along with the writers’ manual!) If you can also work as an editor, that’s a plus! (you will be paid accordingly!)
I cannot emphasize enough on the image quality! It is something I am very concerned about and I am afraid I won’t be able to make a compromise! Hence, please apply only if you can click good quality images for the blog! Please be informed I may ask you to re-click the images if you don’t click them right at the first try!
Working hours : 1-3 hours a day approximately (flexible!) The number of working hours entirely depends on the assignments give to you. (writing, editing, etc.) You will be paid more/less accordingly! We will discuss more on that!

– You need to share your full name, ID proof and complete postal address when you apply. You can write under a pen name if that fits your wish but submitting proper details is mandatory!
You get to try newly launched cosmetics (skin/hair/makeup!) since I can purchase/send across a few to you for you to test and review them on the blog and the sample(s) need not to be returned. If you’re a blogger or if you’re planning to be one in near future, I can share my ideas and experiences with you (I’m not a expert; but I’ve some experience in blogging, I believe!) when we work together! (When you leave MABH, you leave with a good experience in beauty blogging and I assure that!)
Other than this, you also get to attend events/fashion weeks/festivals across your city on the behalf of MABH, (You’ll receive special invites!) in case if I don’t get to attend them! Good news is, I most often don’t. However, attending events is not mandatory! It’s your personal wish!
Done reading the entire post?! You can NOW apply for the internship! If you’d only glanced the page, I highly suggest you to go through the requirements fully since I may not get back to you if you apply with improper details. I respond to applications that are sent in a proper format!

I also suggest you to go through the Work with Me section on the blog to have an idea on the format! Once you believe you understand the requirements, please send in your application at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘Internship at MABH!’
I’m also thinking to hire a full time personal/blog assistant who can come to my place (Thiruvottiyur, Chennai) and work with me/assist me with my day-to-day activities. If you are interested, please drop an email! We shall have a discussion.
Looking forward to work with a wonderful team!
