    I'm not saying this is a great job but to your comment.........sometimes a part-time job is the answer so one can gain experience
  5. But you are not getting much, if any, "journalism" experience with a fantasy sports website. If it fell under the Yahoo! umbrella, then that's something different, but not something like this.

    $10 an hour for 25 hours equals $250 a week, before taxes.

    A monthly Long Island Railroad ticket to Huntington is $238. So, once a month, you're clearing a whole $12. And that's if the office is next to the Huntington LIRR stop.

    That's why I said,"I'm not saying this is a great job". I realize that this particular position won't be a resume "wow!" and to go even further,probably an "eye roll". I was commenting more to the remark about the pay in general for living on LI. My point was that sometimes one has to fill in the blanks when digging the trenches.

    If it's simply a Web site, why even have to move to Long Island? Take the crappy pay and move to Kentucky where your money will go a long way.

    $12.000 dollars a year thats the figure I have come up with. This is before taxes.

    If that's the answer, the question must be "what's the quickest way to knock myself out of mainstream journalism and financial stability?"

    If someone is good at what they do(this case journalism),let's just say they won't be needing to even consider this job. If they're not ......then work it and get a part-time job to fill in the blanks w/o complaining.

    But you get most of your experience through teaching, osmosis (as in reading and being around fellow writers) and repetition. How much useable experience for the next step are you going to get from a fantasy sports startup? Hell, you can start your own blog (s!) and get equal experience.
