When will I learn about Craigslist and Jobs?

By cranelegs, published on Mar 2, 2010

I decided to get nuts. And when I get nuts, I go to Craigslist. It's like the nexus of the nuts universe. If it's not in Craigslist, then it's not worth not pursuing. Besides, I hadn't been there in quite some time really—well actually, ever since the last time I went. So to say I wasn't getting that old tinkle drop feeling of anticipation wouldn't be fair. I was.

Now the instigator of all this was some reading I've been doing about becoming a paid copywriter. It's something that suits me as far as I can tell, that is if I want to take my writing to the next level, or more accurately,... (more)

The Lists Of Craig

By wolviela, published on Apr 26, 2009

"We both scraped the bottom of the barrel, didn't we?" This is what my current boyfriend  said to me about 2 months into our relationship.  We had both tried Yahoo Personals, and other ways to meet people, but it just didn't work for either of us.

I had used Craigslists many times. I found two apartments that way and a job. Sure I had perused the other sections of Craigslist and often wondered if meeting someone that way was feasible.

Finally I decided what the hell. My ad was no more that 3 sentence long and the responses  received were surprisingly a lot. I hadn't even put my... (more)

Finding A Fat Friend On Craigslist

By travelingseth, published on Apr 7, 2009

...295 lbs, our friend was in for a squeeze. I also had to wonder, “What’s the worst that could happen? Severe beating? Could I take a severe beating?” I’m driving, alone, into the Tenderloin—San Francisco’s most ghetto neighborhood—to meet Redogo…the sole respondent to our Craigslist ad for a fat friend.We (my friend Matt and I) weren’t trying to be mean. I’ll admit, the kick was in the wrongness. But we were also sincere. Figured anyone who’d answer an ad like that might just be awesome. I gave Redogo a call. “Hey man, on my way,” I informed him, “Matt’s... (more)

Punking People On Craigs List

By Ed Attanasio, published on Nov 26, 2008

I am so tired of some of the Help Wanted ads I find on Craigs list every day. What really gets my goat is when I see these postings where companies require a wide range of very specific qualifications, all the way from whether or not a person has a sense of humor, how many kids they have or what kind of car they drive. Many of these ads are sexist, racist and ageist.

These are employers that want to delve deeply into your life. They might as well move in next door. Yet, in most cases, they’re offering below-market wages for all these qualifications they require. Then, after they hire... (more)

An Interview with Craig from Craigslist

By Digidave, published on Dec 19, 2007

...me to hold on while he turned down the TV.

He then answered every question I had in the most polite fashion possible. In the middle of our interview the ever watchful Newmark did a quick search for his name and found a Twitter I had just put out: "I'm interviewing Craig Newmark from Craigslist in 20 mins, anybody have any good questions." After a quick laugh, I realized that Craig walks a fine line between two worlds. Actually, he struts across that line. He is an Internet sensation. One of the first real Internet gurus, yet he isn't a multi-millionaire, he hasn't retired to the... (more)

...come around and fill the void. Today I am happy to report a new entity has finally come and answered the call -- providing people of our generation with its very own Times Square, located right on the good ol' Internet for all to enjoy regardless of their locale.
