Well, you may or may not have heard but Examiner.com has stopped accepting submissions and will be closing up shop ("on or around") July 10, 2016. I have to admit that it's not surprising in a way because they implemented a lot of editorial and compensation changes a bit too late. But I have a lot to be grateful for when it comes to Examiner.com.
In 2009 one of my dance jobs had come to a close and I was looking for a way to supplement my income. A search for online writing jobs brought up a new-ish site that I had never heard of. After a lot of research I applied and later was accepted.
As time went on I began interviewing local dance personalities. Those interviews became like networking and resulted in more jobs. And I decided it was also time to jump into social media and a blog (this blog).
Without Examiner.com I probably would never have met many of you! This is something that inspires untold gratitude. All the wonderful contacts and friends I have gained with similar interests and aspirations have been such an inspiration to me.
Thank you, all! And thank you, Examiner.com!
