Many bloggers do so in coffee houses, libraries or even sitting on park benches. Then there's always the traditionalists who blog from their boring old offices, too.
But Procter & Gamble Co., the maker of numerous household items, including Charmin toilet paper, are looking for five energetic and innovative die-hard writers to blog from the bathroom.
And they're willing to pay $10,000 for all those potty-produced posts.
The "Charmin Ambassadors" will spend five weeks, from Nov. 23 to Dec. 31 in Charmin Restrooms, located in Times Square. At least they'll have prime seats when the ball drops on New Year's Eve.
As part of their mission, the bloggers will interact with the streams of bathroom guests; greeting, entertaining and engaging them. They'll also post their experiences on their personal blogs, as well as on Charmin-branded sites. Charmin says they'd also like the Ambassadors to create family-friendly videos, a sort of 'tales from the can" experiment.
The campaign "Enjoy the Go" will officially kick-off with auditions on Nov. 5 at New York's Hilton Hotel on 53rd Street and 6th Avenue. For more details, visit enjoythego.com.
