In case you haven't noticed. I've started writing for Buffalo's Examiner.com. The website has "city" sites of places all over the US.
Basically Examiner.com just opened up their "Buffalo" city version & they are still looking for writers for a lot of different topics in various categories. Weekly they ask you to on average write 3-4 articles, 150 words or more. You actually earn money by promoting your page/articles and the traffic generated to your articles.
There are so many topics open in every city still. & you can also make up your own topic (Twilight examiner, Harry Potter examiner etc...) Go check out the website & if it is something you are interested in, it won't hurt to apply!
I decided to do it because I could use it on my resume/get back into my writing and in turn promote my photography. :) It's perfect for people that like writing & have other things to promote within their topics, since I'm the concert examiner I can promote my friends when they are coming into town, haha. It's a win win situation and I can earn a little bit of money while I'm at it.
So if you have any more questions, let me know. & let me know if you do apply & what you apply for :) (& don't forget to say that I referred you please!)
The first Seven (7) people to respond to this post will get something made by me.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. - What I create will be just for you. - It'll be done this year (2009). - You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a mix CD. It may be a poem. I may draw or paint something. I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure! - I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. - Additional caveat: I reserve the right to make something for your kid(s) instead of you. :)
The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you expect me to do something for you!
I have a lot of creative friends, I've seen things like these going around on livejournal and have always felt like I should post one but never "got around to it". Well 2009 is about positivty and productiveness. You don't have to repost it in your journal but it's a nice way of spreading sunshine to people. Eventually I'll post what I send to others so everyone will know, but who knows maybe you'll get something on a day that you really needed a pick-me-up. :D
