I’m writing for Examiner.com!

It’s been a crazy interesting week and a half, let me tell you. Yours truly is now the Kettle Moraine New Dads Examiner at Examiner.com.

Here’s what this means: Examiner.com is a website that specializes in providing local content. When you go to their site, they immediately ask you where you live, and then lists content for your area. They openly recruits writers to supply this content, so one day recently (and I forget how I got there) I browsed their list of available Examiner columns in the Milwaukee area. The one that jumped out at me was the New Dads Examiner, and so I applied. They accepted my application! But, they also thought that I was too far away from Milwaukee to write for that area. Fair enough. I suggested the Kettle Moraine area, since I both live there and work there, and they agreed. The rest is recent history, and soon-to-be future history.

Here is the link. Do me a favor and

  1. Read it.
  2. Subscribe to it.
  3. Comment on it.
  4. Give me ideas.
  5. If my success inspires you to write for Examiner, please let me be your referral, as Examiner treats their writers well if they refer someone to become a writer.

Now I don’t think I can quit my day job just yet, it’s not that kind of gig. No, but writing for Examiner.com does help me out by giving me some more opportunity to write articles (thus improving my writing), and more exposure so that I can bring in more freelance jobs.

I haven’t left off fiction writing. That is still near and dear to my heart. But I am very excited to finally have even a small writing job!

      Thanks, Laura! I already have my first article posted, with another on its way soon.

      This new gig has already had an effect on this blog, too. People link over when the read my bio at Examiner. It makes me aware of some updating this site needs if it’s to keep up.

      Hope all is well with you. Take care!
