Freelance Writers in Tampa Bay

Become a Local Celebrity!
Be a Freelance Writer for Examiner.com

Are you someone who is passionate and proud of your city? Can you be a credible resource for local information, news and events? If you have a desire to provide your local community with useful information about a subject you love, then the team at Examiner.com would like to speak with you!

Examiner.com is rapidly becoming the online destination for local information, news and events in 60 major markets across the country. Using technologies such as video, photographs, blogs and good old fashioned reporting, Examiner.com will offer useful information the way you’d like to see it!

Examiners are writers at heart, who use words and pictures to inspire and inform, to open dialogues, and to help people tackle everyday challenges. Examiners address situations and opportunities that are unique to their respective cities. They are your helpful neighbors and local leaders. Examiners are informed, reliable, entertaining and authentic.

Examiners are everyday people with knowledge to share. Examiners come from a variety of backgrounds and professions; they are college students, civil servants, retirees, PhDs, musicians, magazine editors and stay-at-home moms. As an Examiner, you can reach thousands of people in your local community and become recognized as the “go to” expert for local information, news and events. You know these people: they get others excited about what they care about in a fun, useful, non-pompous way.

This is not a full-time job. Most Examiners have full-time or part-time jobs, or are full-or-part time students. This is similar to a freelance opportunity - but you decide when and what you want to write about. Examiners are expected to publish a minimum of three posts every 7 days. That keeps the page current and keeps readers coming back, which generates page views -and that's the key to our success! The more familiar you are with Web-based publishing (things like HTML, and uploading photos and video), the faster it should go. If publishing online is new to you, the team at Examiner.com will provide the training and tools you need to publish and promote your articles. We don't expect our Examiners to write long posts - in fact, brevity is often the key to success. The more posts you complete, the more page views you generate. Examiners are paid based on a set "floor" per 1,000 pages views and this adjusts - never below the floor - based on advertising and marketing gains. Ultimately, being an Examiner is a great way to inform others about a subject you're knowledgeable and passionate about, and an opportunity to promote yourself and we hope, further your career.

The talented people we're looking for have deep expertise in one of the following subjects:

  1. Arts and Entertainment
  2. Autos
  3. Bars and Clubs
  4. Business
  5. Community
  6. Education
  7. Family
  8. Fitness
  9. Food and Drink
  10. Games
  11. Health
  12. Home and Living
  13. Jobs
  14. News

  17. Real Estate
  18. Recreation
  19. Relationships
  20. Restaurants
  21. Shopping
  22. Spirituality
  23. Sports
  24. Technology
  25. Travel

We’re looking for people whose knowledge and expertise align with the subjects we intend to cover. If this is you and you have a desire to share your views in useful ways, Examiner.com can give you the voice you’ve been looking for.

One of the best parts about being an Examiner is where and how you work. You can work from your home office, an internet café or just about anywhere else with an internet connection. You set your own schedule and decide what topics to cover.

If the idea of becoming an Examiner gets you excited and you live in or around the Tampa Bay area, we’d love to hear from you. Please go to http://www.examiner.com/about_examiner and set aside 20 minutes to tell us how you can add value to your community by becoming an Examiner.
