Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

​I haven't had the day's first cup of coffee yet, but I'm practically jittery with excitement about this link that a my New Times colleague (and fellow hardcore blogging machine) James King sent me. 

Turns out, Pei Wei Asian Diner is on the lookout for a blogger to join chef Eric Justice and his culinary team on a seven-city, 16-day trip to Thailand, Vietnam, China, Japan, and Korea.

"The Pei Wei blogger will eat everything from street food to five-star cuisine, trek from remote villages to world-renowned cities, and meet everyone from rural farmers to cutting-edge chefs," reads the job description. "And along the way, he or she will capture the adventure on video, film and in daily blog posts."

Whoever wins the gig has to blog two or three times a day, and generally document the incredible sights, smells, and culinary inspirations encountered by the group. And the pay? A sweet $10,000. 

I wonder if my boss would give me two weeks' vacation in March 2011 . . . (not joking!).

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
