I wanted to find a way to create work for other writers, that, while low-paying, gave them some initiative and some respect for the time they put in.
I wanted to make a small point. If you ask people to write for you, why not give them something? Even if it's this- $15-20 dollars for a 500-1,500 word guest blog spot.
So that's what I'm going to do. Once or twice a month, I'll invite a guest-blogger or two to contribute a story. The subject has to be about minor league baseball. It can be an interview, a feature, an opinion piece, a prospect report or statistical analysis, as well as game coverage that focuses on something interesting in the game or a standout player.
Whatever it is, expect that when you're doing it, someone is paying you for your time. Because writing is a job. And it should pay. Just make sure you have PayPal.
For anyone interested in paying gigs, I'll contact writers I'd like to bring on, but please also feel free to pitch ideas by DM on Twitter if I follow you. If not, contact me at @email@example.com. Don't contact that address about anything other than writing work. Thanks!
