As with any writer, I'm constantly on the lookout for a new place to publish my words and share my stories. It's what writers do. We can't not write and, in this ecomony, we can't NOT get paid for it. Recently, I started writing for a couple of websites that many of you might find interesting.
Examiner.com has different versions of the site, depending on where you are accessing it from. Entering www.examiner.com in your browser will automatically take you to the Milwaukee pages of their site. Here you can find local news, events, and local writers keeping you updated on everything going on in our fine city. The topics are endless -- search for car repair, you'll find something. Search for politics, you'll find something. Search for cats and you'll find me. Yes, I am writing about feline health, behavior, activities, etc. You can search for me by name or by topic. And if you have something you would like me to cover, send me an email -- I'd be happy to have any input you might have. Bookmark the site and visit often. All topics are updated 3-4 times a week, so there is always something new and exciting in whatever area that interests you.
The other site is www.suite101.com. Here again, you can search by author or by subject, making it easy to find anything you might need. This site isn't necessarily location specific -- more general information -- but still a good place to learn about everything from birth control to financing your next vehicle purchase.
If you like what you see, by all means, share the links with everyone on your contact list. Both websites are great to bookmark and visit regularly -- if for no other reason than to support your local freelancer whose income is dependent upon clicks on her articles. :)
But seriously, there's a lot of great information on both sites and, particularly at Examiner, you'll be helping to support local writers. Keep on clickin'!
