Site Update: New Contributors Wanted

It’s crazy to believe that it’s been more than seven years since I started a sports website of my own to share observations, write about teams I was following anyways, and connect with all of you. This site has been going strong for six and half years, in fact. And I’m dedicated to make it an even better destination for sports fans in Indiana.

Years ago, I had a half dozen friends contributing content. They have since gone on to their own jobs in sports media.

This isn’t my only job and so I cannot write as much as I would like. I know it’s not easy to create a website or platform to share your original content. Already, I’m writing, hosting a weekly podcast, on a daily sports talk show, and calling play-by-play in town.

Therefore, I believe it’s time to have more voices and even more content on VigilantSports.com. And so, I am looking to add to the staff.

What I’m Looking For:

At the least, this is what I’m going to add:
3 writers covering the Pacers
1 writer covering the Colts
1 writer covering Indiana University athletics

I am open to additional roles, such as a columnist, Purdue and Notre Dame contributors. That will all depend on the interest.

Requirements:

  • Knowledge and passion for sports.
  • Ability to follow instructions and meet deadlines.
  • Must contribute at least one content item per week.
  • Experience writing about sports.
  • Ability to write without bias.
  • Experience with WordPress.
  • *An active presence on social media is a bonus.

How to Apply:

Send an email to apply@vigilantsports.com.

In the email, please attach a resume with at least two samples of your writing, and be sure to share 1. what team you want to cover, 2. and why you want to join VS.

Questions, comments, and ideas are all welcome.
