Examiner.com: Successful Reader Shares Tips and Resources
Yesterday I sent you five online blogs where you can get paid to write about your travels… or anything you like. If you missed that article, you’ll find it in our archives, here: http://www.thetravelwriterslife.com/?p=594
Here’s a note from a reader, with yet another place to get published and paid for page views and ad revenue:
I attended the San Francisco Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop last year. I’d like to share a success story with you and pass on an opportunity for other Great Escape Publishing alumni.
With the economy being in a downturn, I’ve found myself with a reduced work week (Mon to Thurs). So I use my Fridays to focus on writing.
I am now the Sacramento Outdoor Travel writer for Examiner.com (http://www.examiner.com/Sacramento). I’m excited to have a by-line and some street cred.
Right now, Examiner.com is looking for writers and setting up new websites in major metropolitan areas across the country. This is an online gig, with pay determined by page views.
Please let other Great Escape Publishing students know that this opportunity exists.
Thanks for all the help and support!
