    GoingFor2.com has made a name for itself in the Fantasy Sports field and is looking to expand its audience by offering editorial sports articles. We are looking for enthusiastic sports fans to write opinionated and thought-provoking columns for all sports, including, but not limited to; NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, PGA, Nascar, MMA/UFC, and Esports. This is a paid position, but we are a small blog so compensation is minimal.

    Paid, meaning a salary, or meaning a freelance fee?

    It's a pay per view. $1 per 1,000 views and a .50 cent per article bonus.

    LOL. It would be less insulting to offer an unpaid internship.

    WTF is Esports? You mean like "deportes"?

    Video games. They're a sport now. They work just as hard.

    Wow - .50 cents? They're not even giving away a full penny anymore?

    Get out of here.

    Wait, seriously? Fantasy sports for video games? That's a real thing and not an Onion article?

    No. it's actually video game competitions. It's on the telly every once in a while. And I immediately change the channel.

    No. No. This is writing about fantasy sports, at least going by the web site. But NFL network does have a show where guys play Madden.

    Another reason not to watch NFL Network and all its Planet Zippy-ness

    Hadn't checked back here for awhile. I thought I signed up for email alerts, guess not.
    Obviously, I meant $.50, not half a penny.

    Though it may be insulting to you, 95% of sites like mine pay nothing. I know this because I write for 2 other sites in addition to mine in which I get zero compensation. Some people just like to write, and if they get a little incentive to do it then why not?

    And yes, E-sports is a thing. Mostly first person shooters with large teams. Mostly in Europe and Asian. And fantasy e-sports is a "daily fantasy" game that Draftkings and a few others have.

    Now with all that said. I've found 3 writers already from this post. I'm still looking if there is anyone else still interested. http://goingfor2.com/write-for-us
