seeking editors and content for sections of this magazineI am also seeking people for web-based talk shows for each section of the magazine.Talk shows will need a host, producer, and videographer.A section is a series of issues focused on a specific topic. Probable sections: Education, People and Places, EntertainmentMore sections TBD.What is a web-welcomer?I just made up that name because it could become a job for some people.It is like a receptionist in an office.  Or a greeter in a store.  Except it is done in a web-world.  It can be done in the privacy of your own home. In your bedroom or living room, In a wheel chair if needed.  Even in a hospital bed,All you need is skill in dealing with people and good knowledge of what is offered.How hard is it to be a web-welcomer?Obviously, not physically demandingIt can be mentally demanding if you have a lot of incoming.In my web-world, I don’t get a lot of traffic–yet.  It would be boring, but I can do other things while I wait for visitors.I can set the web-world to send me an email when someone comes in. So I could respond to a visitor any time I am on my computer.  Is there any pay for a web-world welcomer?Not yet.  That could emerge if businesses use web-worlds for marketing.Unlike the rest of the web, web-worlds invite 2-way conversations.  That is like in-store conversations from back when people went to stores.Pay might be on a sales commission or per click-through basis**********************************************************************************LicenseOriginal text in this blog is CC By: unless specified
