A fun and possibly rewarding opportunity for you

As you may or may not know, I am an Examiner for Examiner.com. Actually, I'm a double Examiner, as I have two topics. I am the National Christian Writing Examiner and the Grand Rapids Christian Fiction Examiner. I haven't been super active in the past several months, but I enjoy posting when I can. Of course, I'm passionate about both writing and fiction, so it's not much of a "job" which is a good thing because I don't make a whole lot doing it. Then again, that's probably because I don't devote a ton of time to it.

Anyway...I just wanted to throw the opportunity out there for you guys. If you are passionate about something, Examiner.com is a great platform on which you can talk about what you love. There are both national and local positions available. I have friends who hold titles of: local Frugal Examiner, Childrens Books Examiner, Church Ministry Examiner, Evangelical Examiner, and other local Christian fiction or writing Examiners. But the topics are endless. Just a few topics of interest to you may include: Reality TV, Restaurants, Shopping, Children, Marriage, Sports, Gardening, Homeschooling, Beauty, Fitness, Health, Politics...like I said, the list is endless.

The following specific Examiners in demand right now are:

*Autos & Motorcycles
*Sports
*Recreation
*News
*Green

So...if you're interested in giving it a shot and earning a bit of cash, I encourage you apply as an Examiner. If you're a writer, this is a wonderful position to add to your resume' and a great platform to get your name out there.

If you have any questions, let me know. Here's the link to apply: http://exm.nr/khwuDj

Sounds interesting! Probably not for me, since my time is already stretched to the limit, but I'm sure it would be a great opportunity for a lot of writers. Thanks for taking the time to spread the word!

Would you say more about what you do as an Examiner? My interest is in fostering creativity in my city and church. What should I examine?

John-Paul, you could Examine anything church-related, your local creative arts/entertainment events, anything related to drama or theater ministry, etc. The possibilities are really endless. You can check out all of the current Examiner pages on www.examiner.com. I believe when you apply, you can also request a specific topic. Basically, you just report / write as often as you want (3-5 times a week is a good number of posts). You would get all of the details after being accepted (or hired) as an Examiner.

Hope this helps. Good luck with it!
